Cherries Jubilee Cocktail

cherries jubilee cocktail recipe

As a food photographer and food and drink enthusiast, I believe fresh is best. However, I cannot deny that there are some things I keep in the freezer to use long after their season is over. Cherries is one of those things. National Cherries Jubilee Day is coming up later this week and I wanted […]

Treat of the Week: Chocolate Cherry Trifle

You may not know this, but typically my articles are planned months in advance… and sometimes they are even produced and shot long before they appear here or elsewhere on the web. That is not the case with today’s offering. I made it, shot it, and ate it last night. I had originally planned to […]

Welcome to COOKIE WEEK! We are kicking off our 4th annual Cookie Week this week with the Classic Florentine. I cannot tell you how much I adore these cookies.

Man Week: The Story of Gin

the story of gin

Gin. The ultimate summer spirit. While some associate Gin with little old ladies and/or the country club crowd, it is in fact one of the most versatile and misunderstood spirits on the shelf. From the distinct class of a well-crafted martini to the refreshing barroom favorite of a gin and tonic. Gin has fortified the […]

In case you hadn’t noticed, we love food around here. We talk a great deal about design and DIY, but it always comes around to food… more commonly, treats. It always comes back to treats. This week wraps up our second year blogging. It’s hard to believe that we have presented the Treat of the Week every week for […]

Treat of the Week: Cheery Cherry Cupcake

It doesn’t always go right. My original plan for today’s post was very different than what you see. I typically make the treat of the week on the weekend before it is to be posted. That way I have a few days to edit the photos and prep the post, and worst-case scenario, come up with something […]

Cookie Week Day3: Caramel Date Pinwheel

Our third entry for Cookie Week is this delightful little pinwheel cookie. We typically try to include at least one filled cookie with our holiday treats and this one answers the call perfectly. Not only does the swirl give you plenty of cookie to filling, but the pattern is interesting and adds an element of fun to […]

OK, summer, it’s official. I am over you. I have been doing my best to be cordial, but I simply cannot take much more. With more days over 100° than I have ever experienced, I am beginning to feel like a prisoner in my home. To add fuel to the fire, the next ten days are all forecast […]
