My obsession with berries and lemons is at an all-time high. So much so that I had to find a way to consume even more than I already do :).

A couple of days ago, MN experienced the warmest day of the year so far, which had me longing for a cold glass of lemonade and this wonderful version was born shortly after.  

May I add that this was my very first time making lemonade from scratch using real ingredients? Guys, this is a must-make and a must-taste. It will have you seriously question the stuff you can buy in a bottle or make from a powder or concentrate.

So I hope you’re on board as I share a recipe perfect for summer – even though Spring has yet to fully spring in so many parts of the country!

I am done waiting for the weather to make up its mind and am more than ready for the flavors of homemade lemonade to saturate my taste buds. [Read more…]

Indian Chai Tea with Marshmallow Whipped Cream

I am beyond excited to share this recipe with you.

Indian Chai Tea with Marshmallow Whipped Cream

So. You might know how much I love a perfectly steeped cup of tea. I may or may not be a tad bit obsessed when it comes to hot drinks. The hotter, the better. No matter what time of year it is.

In fact, I adore the heat. I am not just saying that because our current temp is somewhere around -25 degrees, but because I really do. Hot showers, heater blankets, and 85 degree weather… these are a few of my favorite things. Sorry, I couldn’t pass up that perfect “Sound of Music” moment, ha.

If you are looking to try something other than the same old breakfast tea or are a tea lover like me, you have come to the right place. This is a real treat.

Cherry Vanilla Soda!

Hi There!

It’s hot, hot, hot outside! And I absolutely love it. We Midwesterners are used to drastic temperatures. I am pretty sure we can have an hour long conversation about the differing conditions. It is no secret that Minnesota is known for its massive amounts of snow and utterly cold temperatures in the winter and beyond. A little over three months ago we were hit with a massive snowstorm and thought that spring would never find its way. Back then I could only dream of temperatures that would allow me to step outside without snow pants, boots, and winter coat. Because I love summertime (don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate all seasons… can’t wait for pumpkin-themed-everything to get here), I am planning on soaking up every ray of sunshine as long as I possibly can, I decided to make you a drink today!
