5 fun fall cocktails


Fall is officially here!
It's time for cooler crisper days and cozying up with a festive cocktail.
Here are 5 of my favorites.


Vibrant and cheerful, 
just like biting into a perfectly picked ripe apple...

A play on Apple Cider and a classic Sidecar,
the Apple CIDcar...

Because cider rhymes with spider and Halloween is only a few weeks away,
the delicious Apple Spider...

Forget Pumpkin Spice,
snuggle up with a PumpGIN Fizz


Double, double toil and trouble,
pull up a broom and sip a 
Witches' Cold Brew...

Fun Fall Gift - Forget BOO-ing, it's time for FOO-ding!

The season of BOOing is upon us, the tradition of
Halloween treats, mysteriously left on your doorstep.
A few years ago, I thought adults should get in on the fun and we started
Now I'm on a mission to feed them.
So if you hear a knock on your door, 
maybe You've Been FOOd!

A basket of autumn appetizers.
Crisp apples, crusty baguette and creamy cheese, 
those are my kind of treats...



I have one friend who does all of her shopping at one store, 
so of course their family got
Whole FOO-d...


Happy Fall!

Señorita Straws - Make Taco Tuesday Great Again!

Taco Tuesday has been our weekly dinner ritual for as long as I can remember.
Sometimes we eat in, often we eat out but it's always tacos.
We keep it simple and I always want to keep it fun, 
I never want anyone to siesta!
Taco Tuesday should always be a fiesta.

In an effort to spice things up, 
we have been sipping festive Mexican sodas, along with our tacos,
through what I've been calling Señorita Straws.

Colorful, bright, refreshing and so easy to make.

See my tutorial here for making the mini tissue paper flowers then hot glue onto a straw.


I am on a campaign to Make Taco Tuesday Great Again.
Join me on Instagram for all the fun.
