I’ve been getting more and more excited about all of the flavors of fall. Apple, cinnamon, ginger, etc. But, here in Colorado we’re still experiencing temperatures in the high 80’s. That kind of weather will have you wishing for a summer cocktail rather than an autumn cocktail. This cocktail is the perfect blend of summer

What could be better than sitting down and enjoying a nice glass of wine after work? How about enjoying one and NOT having to cook, because dinner is done. Yes, please. That’s called a real “happy hour.” Especially with less daylight hours, I’m all about the slow cooker this time of year and through Winter

There’s been a lot of chatter lately about the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Apparently there’s not real pumpkin in their recipe. Shocking, terrible, but it is oh-so-delicious! There’s a lot of alternate recipes out there on how to make your own PSL with real ingredients at home. I’ve tested out a handful of recipes

Tailgating is always better when the food is delicious.  Sure, you could grill up the old-standby hot dogs and call it a day, or you could serve up some delicious Roasted Jalapeno Poppers.  I’ll admit that some of these options are more make-ahead than grill-at-the-game.  But either way, Food Network is a go-to site for
