It’s that time of year when all of us last minute shoppers are scrambling around for the best gifts that we can find. I mean…not that I know anything about that. Well this year I’ve got a gift guide chock full of lovely gifts I think nearly anyone would love to receive, from travelers to foodies to gifts that give back, I hope this makes your annual shopping a bit easier. Of course if it’s already Christmas Eve, few people would complain about some homemade cookies and a bottle of gorgeous booze.Read More
I’ve had this recipe idea in my head for ages, maybe even a whole year, and it finally came to fruition! I thought the sweet squash would contrast with the spicy chorizo, and garlic cream is just always a good idea. I went back and forth between calling it “creme” and “cream.” What’s the difference? I don’t know. Creme is just French for cream, I’m assuming. I don’t know that for sure, I’m not going to google it right now. But I went with “cream” anyway, because it seemed less elitist and more down-to-earth, and that’s really what this blog is all about.Read More
Labor Day may be officially over, but summer doesn't end until September 22! That means we've got a couple weeks left of summer BBQs. Yes, please! Fortunately here in AZ we have a couple more MONTHS of summer weather left, haha. Monsoons are nearly over, and we get back to sunny skies and that dry, sunny weather that I love.Read More
I went down to visit Tucson from Denver a few weeks ago. I go often, because that's where my parents live. I love Tucson for it's sunshine and cycling and hiking and obviously it's amazing food. And it's a good thing, because during the most recent trip I got a job offer down there! I had looked for jobs off and on for a couple years, so it's amazing that this finally worked out!Read More
Y'all, summer vacation is so close, I can almost taste it. And trust me, it tastes like this Strawberry Rose Sparkler. I mean, the patios are opening, and we all need something refreshing and light to sip on this summer.
I don't know about you, but summer is my FAVORITE! I used to love fall, but then terrible winter comes (I feel like I've said this all before). Blerg. So I've transitioned to a summer lover. I love the long, long days, short nights, fresh produce, festivals, outdoor concerts, margaritas by the pool, and most importantly: time off work! Freedom!Read More
The weekend is just around the corner, so I think it's time to celebrate with the world's easiest cocktail! This delicious cocktail contains just 3 simple ingredients. In place of the traditional ginger beer, I use ginger kombucha. This didn't taste distinctly like kombucha to me, but I drink kombucha daily, so perhaps I'm not the best person to ask.Read More
