Poinsettia cocktail with a splash and a twist of orange

Poinsettia cocktail with a splash and a twist of orange

The holiday season is here, and it is time to entertain. You know what that means right? Time to come up with some new cocktail recipes! Riondo Prosecco was kind enough to send me some Prosecco to try out!

Now I am a fan of wine; red, white and definitely bubbly, but my favorite wine to use in a cocktail is Prosecco. The light, fruity sweetness of it makes a great base and the bubbles add some fun. What is great about Riondo Prosecco is the price point. It is affordable so you can buy a few bottles to have on hand to make cocktails or to enjoy on its own during a night in.

How to Make a Starbucks Iced Latte at Home

How to Make a Starbucks Iced Latte at Home

If there is one thing you need to know about me is that I love coffee. Love isn't even a strong enough word I'm obsessed. Today I am going to show you how to make a Starbucks Iced Latte at home with the Ninja Coffee Bar. Now neither Starbucks nor Ninja is paying me for this. This is just how much I like both these brands. Isn't it funny in life when you are young and starting out in your careers or still in college you can spend $5 on a latte and not even think about it. But then when you're actually an adult with a real career and salary you wince at the thought of spending that much money on coffee.... I blame Dave Ramsey or maybe my Dad for making me aware of how much I used to spend on coffee.

If there's one thing I am known for it's my sangria recipe. I've been using the same recipe since college.

Christmas Cookie Swap Recipes

Christmas Cookie Swap Recipes

Almost every year my friends and family get together at this time and host a Christmas cookie swap party. Never been to a cookie swap? Let me tell you how it works. Invite your friends over telling them to bake some delicious cookies to share. Set up a table in your home with lots of tins or to-go bins. Each person collects an assortment of cookies from everyone and package them up maybe sample a few along the way. It's a great way to kick off the holiday party season and an awesome opportunity to share your favorite recipes. Sometimes you leave with so many cookies that they are great for office gifts or even to make a platter to bring to another party.

Free Printable Recipe Cards

Free Printable Recipe Cards

I participated in Swap It Like It's Hot Thrift Store Challenge and made a recipe box out of an upholstered jewelry box. Well what is a recipe box without recipe cards to write your recipes on?! Anyone feel like the handwritten recipes are getting lost with our Pinterest boards? Don't get me wrong I love Pinterest! But I love recipe cards especially when your favorite recipes become spotted with oil and use. I cherish the cards I can immediately point out in my moms hand writing or when I try to make out my grandma's loose but somehow tight cursive that have additional notes that are almost impossible to decipher.

13 Halloween Recipes

One of my earliest memories is my Mom throwing a neighborhood Halloween party. I mean everyone was there I must've been 4 or 5. My Mom made all kinds of spooky food and had my favorite party game ever, where you raced to eat a donut with no hands that was strung above your head. It was just such a great party from what I remember. Which is why I think Halloween is my sister and I's favorite holiday.

Mason Jar Cold Brew Iced Coffee Recipe

Mason Jar Cold Brew Iced Coffee Recipe

Today I am sharing my favorite cold brew iced coffee recipe that can be made in a mason jar. Some may say that I am an iced coffee or maybe just coffee (in general) addict. Any where I travel I am always on the hunt for a local coffee shop. I think part of this is the coffee shop culture since I freelanced for so long and when I was in grad school that is where the majority of my work took place. Now in all these travels to coffeehouses I have developed a love for cold brew iced coffee.
