I don’t do well at Halloween parties. I don’t know why. They should be easy. Halloween parties come with built-in conversation starters: costumes. But I think I just prefer smaller, more intimate crowds. Costumes are distracting. Plus I’ve had bad luck. I went to a party once as… MORE
in my country, a black cat stirring your martinis on halloween is considered good luck.

In an effort to ween myself away from soda and caffeine, and save a bit of money, I decided to find a recipe to make my own chai tea mix.  I tried this one.  It's perfect!  It's much more affordable than the commercial mixes and just as good.  I did as some of the commenters… MORE

Oh, for the perfect cup of hot chocolate!   Reshae’s’s blog reminded me of my love of the rich, perfect drink.   It’s very hard to find,  but when you do,  there’s nothing so exotic or erotic! My most perfect cup is available only in Paris at Angelina’s tear MORE

My favorite smoothies are simple and smooth. I came up with the "Simple Strawberry Smoothie" after playing around with ingredients and other recipes for a few years. Although I list apple juice in this recipe, I have used peach juice and grape juice and they are all equally delicious. You don't… MORE

I’m happy that science keeps saying such nice things about red wine. It’s like when a stranger mentions she likes my mustache or my rodeo belt buckle. It’s nice, it’s affirming, it makes me feel good about my choices, but it’s not entirely necessary. I’d drink the wine, I’d wear the belt buc MORE

Cooler whether is coming. In some places it seems like winter’s already here. Hot Cocoa or Hot Chocolate is a classic winter drink that can be easily whipped up at any time. It’s one of my favorite hot drinks, especially topped with a fluffy dollop of vanilla whipped cream. One of my MORE

Something is sucking the light out of the sky around here. Autumn in Seattle, and it feels like the end is upon us. Probably we’ve done something to insult the universe, again. About now, we Seattleites share a collective dread; it’s the awareness that there are maybe a handful of days left… MORE

That title's not a boozing reference. It’s a reference to how I was smashed into on my bike yesterday morning by a larger, metal-ier vehicle. A minivan, actually. I’m fine, but as I was flying over the minivan’s hood, gliding into that surprisingly elastic space that stretches out… MORE

Over the long Labor Day weekend, the Friday Night Cocktail Club made preserved brandied peaches. My job was to wait  around until most of the preparation was complete, and then swoop in and float some brandy over the tops of the gently cooked, jarred fruit. The r MORE

Coconut oil is a great addition to your favorite beverage recipe! You can add it to smoothie recipes for a quick, healthy breakfast, an energy boost, a pick-me-upper, or a snack. It fills you up and gives you extra energy. Coconut oil can be used in many different beverages though, no MORE
