Key Lime Pie Martini

A fresh cocktail that tastes like the the classic key lime dessert. Fun to make just for you or for a party! The idea for this martini started when I posted my lemon meringue pie martini on social media and a friend commented she was going to try one with limes since she didn’t have

Blood Orange Pomegranate Rum Punch

Blood orange pomegranate rum punch - cocktail in glass with floating orange slice

I make cocktails to distribute to adults during trick or treating on Halloween. Last year I made an apple cider cocktail, and the year before that I made a bloody mary. I think some people come to my street first because they know I give out cocktails! I wanted to do something with dry ice

Kentucky Hot Brown Stromboli

Kentucky Hot Brown Stromboli

I have to give credit to Better Homes and Gardens for the idea and the recipe that served as the inspiration for what I made here. I actually only saw the concept in the magazine, made my own, and checked back to compare the recipes later. This varies from the traditional hot brown because it

Guacamole

I had a potluck with my horseback riding club on Friday. I made brownies to bring, but my bestie was leaving late from work and wasn’t going to have something to bring… so I made guacamole for her to bring! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means I earn a

Almost Bite-Sized Apple Pies

Small apple pies

I had a few apples I needed to use the other day, and I’m a big fan of apple pie. I didn’t have enough for a whole pie, so I decided to make these. They’re smaller than a hand pie, which is why I call them almost bite-sized. Some of the links in this post
