How To Plan the Perfect Picnic

Thursday May 23, 2013 by Alexandra C.



One of the best parts of great weather (besides being able to wear cute skirts and dresses), is being able to eat outdoors. A warm breeze, sunshine, a glass of wine and a delicious plate shared with friends - doesn't that sound great? 

If you aren't a regular picnicker, what are you waiting for?! While dinner parties can be stuffy, a picnic is informal and intimate. It's an easy...

Three Tasty Tea Infused Cocktails for Summer

Wednesday May 22, 2013 by Alexandra C.



Last year, I took a trip to Florida and fell madly in love with sweet tea. Similar to iced tea but with a smoother, tastier (and sweeter) finish, I couldn't get enough of the stuff that summer. This year, I wanted to kick it up a notch. How can you improve on delicious iced teas? 

Um, how about a shot of somethin' somethin'? 

Here are three cold tea infused cocktails for you to...

Last year around this time, I did a little infusion magic with vodka and Jolly Ranchers. It was awesome (if I do say so myself). Some 7 Up and Sprite added to the mix and I was ready to hit the BBQs with summer cocktail in hand. This time around, I'm ready to take infusion to the next level. I'm going to be experimenting with new flavours and liquors.

Want to come with me on this...

Friday April 19, 2013 by Claire


My kids have the End-Of-School countdown started and are already celebrating by staging elaborate wars between their assortment of Lego Stormtroopers and Webkinz (score: Webkinz 0, The Empire 682). 

Wanting to steer their energies away from the Dark Side, I spent last night's "me time" looking for more constructive outlets for their fertile imaginations. It's also Earth Day this...

6 Adult Ways To Enjoy Candy (in cocktails!)

Wednesday April 17, 2013 by Alexandra C.



I firmly believe that adults have the right to enjoy candy just as much as kids do. I have a sweet tooth and I'm not ashamed to admit. Do you know what makes candy even better though? Booze. A candy + booze combo is seriously underrated and deserves way more attention than it gets. Also, nothing screams grown up like a boozy candy cocktail, amirite? So, here are 6 delicious candy inspired...

Tuna Salad Recipe

I love salads that are hearty enough to be a meal.  You feel good after eating them and aren't hungry half an hour later.  This is the salad I make when I'm in a pinch for time and want something quick and nutritious.  Even if you aren't a huge tuna fan, you might still love this salad. With everything mixed together, it's not fishy at all.

Here's what you will need:

1 Can Flaked...

Take a 'Peep' at These 4 Easter Cocktail Recipes

Friday March 29, 2013 by Alexandra C.



If you aren't familiar with Peeps, then you have clearly been deprived. I have a secret love for their sugar covered marshmallow goodness. I've got an intense sweet tooth and I totally get that not everyone understands my passion for Peeps (it is a lot of sugar to take in). I still think that everyone should get a chance to enjoy their Peeps this holiday! 

Isn't it so much more fun...
