Alaska Inside Passage Cruise aboard the Ruby Princess: Part II

Day 5 brought us to Skagway, Alaska, the Northern-most stop on our journey. The only thing more beautiful than the weather was the scenery that greeted us there. (In case you missed it, Part...

Alaska Inside Passage Cruise aboard the Ruby Princess: Part I

When it rains, it pours. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Despite the fact that we were still playing catch-up from our grand Europe adventure, we simply couldn’t turn down an invitation to...

Strawberry Limoncello Jam

Start your canners, mason jars ready… it’s canning season, y’all! First to the starting gate is the ever popular strawberry. Spring’s pride and joy, May’s main squeeze. Load up while you can, folks, because...

Fregula Sarda Salad with Tart Cherries and Smoked Trout

Taylor has decided that dried tart cherries are his new favorite thing this side of Disney World. “If you didn’t need these for a recipe,” he told me, “I’d have devoured the entire bag...

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies with Sea Salt

The hardest part about food blogging is writing about food that’s long gone, dredging up feelings and flavors past and knowing that you’ve long since eaten the last one. Recalling the flavors and textures...

Horchata Ice Cream

Horchata is my home girl. Seriously. It’s second only to ginger beer in my personal ranking of favorite things to drink. Creamy, spicy, and refreshing, it’s everything I want in a beverage. I was...
