Blackberry Coolers

Blackberry-Peach Soda

Last week I made a lovely blackberry and peach pie. I probably could have stuffed the thing to overflowing, but instead I decided to swipe a cup of the filling to turn into a base for a soda syrup. My family loves sodas of all kinds. I am a tea gal, myself, but I can … Continue reading

National Margarita Day!

Holiday Cranberry Margarita

Thank God that there is finally a holiday that I can really get behind. I L.O.V.E. margaritas! One of my favorite pastimes was to make a batch of margaritas and play cards on a Friday night.

DO I HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM OR A PROBLEM DRINKING??

Not quite National Lampoon-style, but in … Continue reading

Last weekend we had my nephew over for dinner. He has just recently moved to the area after returning from Korea for a new assignment stateside. I wanted something easy to make, yet delicious. I had to have a lot of veg, since we had just returned from vacation and I was feeling all sugared … Continue reading

SMALL PLATES: THE ANSWER TO FAMILY EATING

Tapas Buffet

So my husband requested tapas last week (See the post for “Big Plan” – I can’t seem to get the link to work). For those of you who don’t know, tapas is the Spanish term for small plates. It seems that every culture has a version of this – sort of. The Indian version is … Continue reading
