Weekends are definitely the time for a beautiful breakfast or brunch dish. This Blueberry Dutch Baby Pancake recipe is one of my favorite things to make on a relaxed morning. The fresh blueberries can’t be beat!
There are plenty of trendy cocktails that don’t have staying power, but the Whiskey Sour Cocktail is here to stay. I’ve just recently started to enjoy this cocktail. I became a fan after attending a great mixology presentation by an accomplished bartender. It’s easy to learn to love the Jade Bar Whiskey Sour Cocktail (and it’s easy to make).
Summers in Phoenix are brutal, but I’m pretty sure Mother Nature tries to make up for it by giving us mild winters with trees teeming with citrus fruit. So what do you do when life gives you oranges in the middle of winter? You make Fresh Orange Juice & Ginger Smoothies, of course!
A year ago today my dad passed away, which is sill unbelievable to me. My dad was an excellent cook and an awesome baker and he made homemade bread every week of my life that I can remember. He worked in a bakery when he was young, and never tired of telling everyone about the “junk” used to make sliced, processed white bread.
Picking fruit in the desert in the dead of summer? Crazy, right? That’s what I thought, too. Prickly pear fruit are abundant in the Phoenix desert and ready for the picking. The reward of a prickly pear margarita at the end of a harvest was a great summertime surprise!
