Apricot Coconut Prosecco Punch

So, if any of you have ever lived with your parents as an adult, it dredges up interesting feelings. (My parents are great by the way- and always have been.) But I have started having these crazy anxiety dreams that are totally reflective of when I was first REALLY going out on my own and […]

TOP TEN: Best Summer Cocktails

Summer and Cocktails go together like peanut butter and jelly. Am I right? Hot sweaty evenings and cold alcohol fueled drinks are a symphony of happiness around here. I don’t drink every night (don’t worry!), but when I do and it’s summer time- the bevy of cold fruity seasonal cocktails available are so exciting! Here […]

Balsamic Roasted Salmon with Honey Glazed Cherries

I hope you have all had a glorious weekend! I am finally finishing up being lazy. I kind of gave myself this last week to “get back on track” / deal with my jet lag / kind of drag a little, but now I am really ready to get back to my life. (unfortunately, vacation […]

Nicoise Salad with Sesame Seared Tuna

Sometimes you have old recipes that are totally nice the way they are. Then sometimes, even though they are totally nice, you are dying to breathe new life into them.
