Pineapple rum cocktail with whipped cream

This pineapple rum cocktail is something I put together while I was researching foods from the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo and I stumbled on this gorgeous concoction from Fruteria Cano and knew it had just inspired a simple but fun cocktail recipe. I stumbled on this gorgeous...

Gluten-free Tuscan Peasant Soup with Sausage

When my sister-in-law first gifted me a copy of Marcella Hazan’s “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking” for my birthday, I spent a week of reading it cover to cover. It’s an amazing cookbook, especially if you are a cookbook fangirl like I am. One recipe stuck out to me...

Super Simple Baking For Kids: A Review

My seven-year-old, Ellie, was lucky enough to be gifted Super Simple Baking For Kids by Charity Mathews for Christmas (thank you Aunt Ali!). Naturally, we had to try it out this week. First, we skimmed the recipes. She initially wanted to try the “big pretzel.” However, after looking at...

Vodka herb-infused cocktail: Thyme n’ Lime

Sidecar cocktail with pomegranate

Occasionally a brand contacts me with a product so good, I can’t help but to write about it. This is one off those occasions, and this pomegranate sidecar wouldn’t have been as great as it was without Molassity’s pomegranate molasses. The molasses added flavor, tartness, color, and depth to...
