• Cocktails: Strawberry Basil Smash

    My FAVORITE blogger/cookbook author, Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest came out with a Blueberry Lemon Thyme Smash cocktail the other week and it looked so amazing. (if you don’t have her latest cookbook… buy it!)  I didn’t have all the ingredients so I got creative using her method and the result was pretty fantastic. Strawberry Basil Smash for the win!  I use tequila here… well, because I always use tequila. But vodka, bourbon or rum would work well too!    

  • Cocktails: Quaranita

    I came up with this one on our rocking Saturday night… I don’t care for super sweet drinks so this was perfect for me. Feel free to add a little simple syrup if desired! You can easily reduce the recipe down to one or two cocktails or save the leftover juice/tequila mixture in a mason jar in the fridge for the next night!  Also, in case you missed it in my March Favorites post; I have found a liquor delivery service that is SO EASY, and purchases from local stores! Spirits, wine and mixers! Win win. Check them out here: Drizly!         

  • Week Three Corona Virus Hiatus: Let’s Move

    Alright, alright, alright… here we go, week three! How is everyone doing? Stir crazy? Hanging in? I have found that a daily (okay, almost daily) dose of exercise has been doing wonders over here. I have rounded up some great sources for workouts below… and don’t forget getting outside for a walk, run, bike ride… just please keep your distance from others! If you have ever debated getting a Peloton, now is the time! It runs around $58 a month! Even if you don’t want to invest in the bike, their streaming service is awesome. Tons of additional  content ranging from yoga to weight training to boot camp. If you…

  • Bermuda: Travel Guide Update

    We love Bermuda. I have been traveling to Bermuda for vacations since I was a baby so it feels like home to me and I love that my kids now feel that way too. I published a travel guide last year that has all the important information of where to eat, where to stay and of course what to do. I am happy to report I have some great additions to add to that list! (Read the original too!) Matt and I went out for Valentine’s dinner to Barracuda Grill which I mentioned before… but I forgot just how good it is! Easily the best restaurant on the Island! Barracuda…

  • Cocktails: Habanero Harvest

    A warming, spiced and spicy cocktail, sign me up! A simple syrup made with classic Fall flavors and a habanero gives you an earthy and spicy base for this fun Fall drink. Halloween parties, Thanksgiving gathering… or just a Friday night! I went with tequila here because it is my favorite but you could also use mezcal, bourbon, vodka or even a spiced rum! One word of caution, habaneros can be HOT. I first made this allowing the habanero to soak for 15 minutes… good but very spicy. I went back and reduced the time to 5 minutes, but if you like it hot adjust accordingly! The syrup would also…

  • A Relaxed Weekend

    I am beat guys. I need a breather. The end of school is a real energy suck, am I right? This Monday also marked 9 months since I lost my brother. 9 months! I am trying to wrap my head around that. Heading into Summer is very bittersweet. We are so excited for a break at the beach but Summer was my time with my brother. We spent every weekend together. Seriously, every weekend. It is going to be a difficult adjustment for all of us; I am going to cut myself some slack as I navigate this new path. Soooo on that note…. you get a greatest hits post.…
