Summer Cocktails: Creamy Guava Summer Punch

Guavas…you either love ’em or you hate ’em.  There really is no in between.  In Florida, where guavas grow wild,  the fruit has devoted followers and heirloom growers and even some who, as a dear friend has said on more than one occasion, won’t eat something that a “cat would bury.” As polarizing as guavas …

Food Preservation: Simple Homemade Salsa for Canning

With tons of “safer-at-home” time on my hands, I’ve been canning and preserving foods weekly.  So far, since the pandemic began, I’ve made canned tomatoes, prickly pear jelly, peach butter, mango jam, and frozen creamed corn, peas, and even okra. Today’s canning project was inspired by cute jars I found at the Dollar Tree and …

Summer Cocktails: Sunset Wine-tini

We may not be able to travel as we’d like, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our vacation cocktails.  In fact, enjoying these summer cocktails while watching the sunset  from the backyard may be just what we need. For this summer cocktail, we’re taking some pretty common ingredients and turning them into an uncommonly …

Cookies: Chocolate-Caramel Stuffed Bourbon Cookies

I know inspiration can come from unusual places, but do you dream about food?  I certainly do.  I woke up from my lazy Sunday afternoon nap with a very clear memory of a cookie that I dreamed about.  Granted, before my nap, I’d been reading through Joanna Gaines’ Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe, and maybe that …

Summer Cocktails: The Perfect Pina Colada

Happy National Pina Colada Day! I’ve always loved a good pina colada.  However, finding the perfect, homemade pina colada, that doesn’t rely on some overly sweet, “flavored” mix, is sometimes difficult. Last year, we ventured to Havana for Memorial Day weekend, and I found the perfect pina colada, and it right there in my Air …

Summer Cocktails: Triple Berry Cosmo-Rita with 3Daughters Key Lime Cider 

When challenged with creating a cocktail using Wish Farms berries, I knew that I needed to stay true to my roots and true to my palate.  I knew that I needed a simple drink that was easy to prepare, but one that could wow a crowd.  My solution…create a hybrid–marry together two famous cocktails in …

Prickly Pear Jelly

As a kid, I didn’t know that the pretty red fruit on a cactus were edible, and I’m not even sure I would have been willing to try one, but as an adult, I’ve learned otherwise, and I’m willing to try just about any food on the planet. Well, maybe. I’m still not interested in …

Summer Salads: Coconut Mahi-Citrus-Kale Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Bring from Florida and having grown up on an island in the summers, I have caught, dipped, wrangled, cleaned, shelled, cooked, and eaten my fair share of seafood, in all shapes, sizes, and colors.  In fact, one of my earliest memories from childhood was walking with my mom through the grass flats around Boca Grande …

Oven Roasted Chicken with Blackberry-Bourbon Sauce

I love using ingredients in unexpected combinations.  I love taking classics and turning them on their side.  Last night’s dinner was no exception.  After going round and round about what to have for dinner, I gave up asking my husband what he wanted. The supermarket had a sale on blackberries, so I decided that we …
