  • Hibiscus Berry & Mint Iced Tea Cocktails

    It’s Friday friends and it’s warm and overcast here in Cincinnati. Which I actually prefer–give me a summer rainstorm and I’d be in heaven. No matter where you are or how hot or cold it is, fear not, I’ve got us all covered! Is there a better way to cool off on a hot (currently humid) summer […]

  • Loquat Mule

    The loquat, an intriguing specimen of a fruit. Small, fuzzy, full of glossy dark seeds. They take a bit of work to consume. Rinse very well, remove the skin (if you want to), remove the seeds, and the reward is sweet. To me it’s a delightful fusion of a peach and some citrusy notes. Very […]

    Something magical happened the other day. I believe the thunder and lightening had something to do with it. You could feel the energy in the air—electric with potential. With the cold, stormy weather we’ve been having, I’ve been in soup mode. I’ve made a several soups this week alone. But the other day I was […]
