My boys are about 2 1/2 years apart in age. At times they get along famously. And others they act like, well, brothers. But there are two things they can agree on. They LOVE soda (which they don’t get often). And Netflix (which they watch all the time). Recently they’ve become interested in my world of cocktails. With all the special tools and specialty ingredients, they are always asking questions about drinks and wanting to use the strainer or jigger. I decided to create a non alcoholic sangria that is totally kid friendly as a special treat. And while there isn’t much soda in this recipe, it’s still enough to make the kids feel like it’s a special occasion.

Spring has sprung and the weather has started to warm up. And we get to celebrate our favorite mothers on Mother’s Day. There are many wonderful mother figures in my life and I am so grateful for the time I get to spend with them. But this year, one mom in particular is blowing my mind (and, quite frankly, making me feel a little inadequate). This Mother’s Day, my sister-in-law will be celebrating her first as a mom of 4 kids. Her family recently fostered two toddler boys and it instantly doubled her family. She has handled this (and ALL the stress that comes with it) with such grace and love. She is truly a role model and deserves a little extra praise. But I also want to encourage her to find time for herself. Read through for a delicious adult-friendly Buttered Cheerios™ recipe with Truffle Oil that she can easily make during their regular snack time!

You need three things for a good BBQ: good food, rad friends and (hopefully) warm weather. And while being invited to one is awesome, I love to host them even more! Today I’ve partnered with Hebrew National to share my favorite BBQ party ideas. There’s nothing I love more than a grilled hot dog and a stress-free menu that will let you enjoy your own party.

I live in an area where the parks are abundant but your house and yard are tiny. I often want to invite people over but worry that my house will be too cramped (plus I’ll have to clean it…). Now that the weather is warming up, we really need to start taking advantage of these gorgeous public spaces. While you won’t have your full party arsenal available to you in a park, it is still really easy to put together great looking parties to go.
Please tell me I’m not the only one afraid of cooking fish. I really want to add fish to our dinner rotations but I kind of don’t want my house to stink up. Plus, the only times I’ve tried to cook it, I’ve managed to make an awful, mushy mess. Do you know what I’m NOT afraid of, though? Products that aspire to help you get a delicious dinner on the table, fast. In fact, I embrace them. I totally geek out over an entrée that I don’t have to fool with and lets me focus on quick, delicious side dish recipes. Because I kind of excel at those. I can’t wait to share this spring-inspired menu with you. And, yes, I cooked fish!
Have I got a drink for you! It seemed like all of a sudden, Moscow Mules got super trendy and were on every cocktail menu. I totally get it. They’re super tasty and refreshing and really easy to make at home. So I started trying out all kinds of different versions like this Bourbon Moscow Mule. I quickly knew that I needed to try one with tequila, a Mexican Mule if you please, and was not disappointed! It’s such a great twist on the classic recipe. I don’t love spicy foods, but there is something amazing about a cocktail with a little bit of a spicy kick so I came up with this spicy Mexican Mule Recipe to share with you!
