Garden 2016 Update & Bourbon Sidecar

Now, I remember.

It’s easy to forget over a long winter. But, it’s all coming back to me now. If there’s one headache of a garden, it’s the watering system. Something is always breaking. Either we need to buy a new timer here… or a new timer there. […]

Peach Blossom Memories

It’s gorgeous outside.

Lets get out there and enjoy everything nature has to offer!

And, no cocktail says sunshine in a glass quite like the Sidecar. Brunch on our sunny deck begs for this simple little beauty that blends cognac, […]

My New Washer, My New Hate Affair

GE 4.2 CuFt Top Load Washer (Hybrid Washer with Old Style Agitator)

Am I the only one who hates the “new” generation of washers? By new, I mean the washers that have popped up over the last 10 years that have a super short and stubby agitator…

My Daiquiri

This is a daiquiri worth drinking…

Even though I stumbled upon a bad bag (bright green and pretty, but dry batch) of limes, I was able to make a very tasty daiquiri with those limes. I nuked each one of my dry (but still fresh looking) limes for […]

Irish Cream Liqueur

Today, I have a cold and a sore throat. I have big plans to spend most of the day curled up with a book under the covers. But, this weekend I’ll be ready to get out and enjoy the day.

Rain or shine.

Though, I’m hoping […]

The Bronx

The Bronx

Right off the bat…

If you aren’t into old fashioned cocktails, you probably won’t like this one. It has a very old fashioned… 30s to 40s and probably into the 50s old fashioned vibe to it. This might be a fitting cocktail to set […]

Coffee Cream Liqueur

During the holidays, my honey can drink egg nog like no one else can. By far, it’s one of his favorite guilty pleasures. Adult beverage version or otherwise, he loves it. Southern Comfort brand easily tops both of our list of favorites. But, he loves it all. Egg nog, milk […]

Dark Tide

Beach time…

Strolling on the beach, lazing in the sun, sipping a cocktail or two and wandering through the tourist shops. Just try not to have fun. You can’t do it. It’s impossible. We love everything about a beach vacation.

Camille’s Cocktail

The weather was perfect. Seriously, look at that.

We wanted to watch dusky dawn break into a bright new day. But, that happens before 7am and we’re just not early risers. So, we couldn’t make that happen. We were still tucked into a downy bed nibbling on pieces […]

Maple Leaf Sundae

When you’re tucked in for a chilly night, curl up by the fire and balance the heat with a soft ice cream sundae. Let the ice cream its on the counter for 5-10 minutes before scooping. This way the ice cream will be perfectly soft and melty as you take […]
