Ginger Mojito

A new twist on a classic drink recipe, the ginger mojito

Ginger Mojito

The human mind is an amazing thing. We can somehow always remember when we had “the best” of something. I suppose that is why they have the Food Network show “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” The best mojito I ever had was at Bahama Breeze while in Florida on vacation. It was minty, without it being overpowering, and it was sweet and refreshing. They served it with a piece of sugar cane which was awesome! I’m not sure if I will ever be able to recreate that awesome mojito, but I did come up with another version which is just as fantastic: the ginger mojito! read more

Oven Baked Scrambled Eggs

My husband and I went on a cruise in 2014. And believe it or not, the thing I missed most when we got home was the scrambled eggs. So it became my mission to find the best way to make scrambled eggs. And after some Pinterest searching and recipe testing, I have found it!!

The scrambled eggs they serve on a cruise are similar to those on many breakfast and brunch buffets. They are big, fluffy, and incredibly light. And the secret to these delicious eggs is that you bake them in the oven. read more

Peach Cobbler Cocktail

A peach tea cocktail recipe which tastes just like the dessert peach cobbler!

Peach Tea

The smell of warm peach tea screams dessert. While I was experimenting with drink recipes, I knew I had a winner when the flavor tasted just like peach cobbler. Amazing!!

The inspiration for this recipe came from my peach iced tea. When Kate posted her recipe she mentioned you can add liquor to make a cocktail so I started experimenting. Even though the tea and the booze was good together it needed a little extra umph. The solution to any problem you are have when creating a drink is carbonation. In my opinion, it takes any cocktail over the top. Lemon lime soda is usually my go-to mixer when it comes to cocktails. It has the right on the sweetness, it isn’t overpowering, and the flavor is complementary to pretty much any drink you’re going to make. read more
