Raspberry White Hot Chocolate

So long, January, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out! I’m thrilled to bid farewell to this dreary month with a pretty pink drink. Raspberry White Hot Chocolate marks the end of Hot Chocolate Week—where “week” is loosely defined as “that period of time that shall not conform to a calendar…

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

So if last week’s Lavender Hot Chocolate was all about treating yo’self –well actually, myself—then this Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is all about treating the entire freakin’ world. Because I’m pretty sure that what the world needs isn’t love, sweet love, but chocolate, sweet chocolate. And if that chocolate is mixed with a based of…

Lavender Hot Chocolate

One of the best things about being an adult is getting to make and eat whatever the heck you want. When I was younger, I imagined that once I got to actually choose what I could eat, I would have a lot of doughnut breakfasts, cookie lunches, and pizza dinners. It only took about two…

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Welcome to hot chocolate week! I’m into hot chocolate in a major way right now. Like, I sometimes find myself refusing other desserts in favor of an after-dinner mug of chocolate. I know. I never thought I would see the day I’d say no thanks to cookies, but the siren song of hot chocolate is…

Three words: Hot. Chocolate. Floats. Did I just blow your mind, or what? Maybe the rest of the world has been enjoying hot chocolate floats for years, but for some reason this concept had literally never occurred to me before. I don’t know why not—I like ice cream, I love hot chocolate, and I adore…

  Here’s something about me that probably won’t come as a surprise: I love throwing parties. (If you’re a regular reader, the post about my Very Hungry Caterpillar party this past spring might have tipped you off.) Actually, I love-slash-hate throwing parties, because I inevitably get obsessive and way too intense about it, and it’s…

Watermelon-Raspberry Juice

Our Arrested Development recipe countdown is almost over, but there’s one very important recipe that still needs to be shared.  I’m talking, of course, about the ultimate party beverage:  J-U-I-C-E. “We have unlimited juice? This party is gonna be off the hook!” –Buster Yes, everyone’s favorite shoulder-massaging, Hey Brother-greeting, mother-adoring scholar is obsessed with juice,…

Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Milkshakes

Maybe I’ve been wrong this whole time. Maybe I’ve been barking up the wrong tree with this food writing thing. Maybe I’m wasting my time taking food photos. Maybe my life’s purpose, my main mission, my raison d’être, is just to shove random things in a blender with ice cream. I mean, it worked with…
