Cranberry Margaritas


Now that we are making our way into late fall and (soon) early winter, cranberries are set to take center stage in the produce department. I for one love cranberries and look forward to their reappearance every year. The tartness of fresh cranberries makes them a great addition to a number of otherwise sweet desserts.

Parmesan Crusted Goat Cheese with Basil ..

Superbowl Sunday was certainly a memorable one this year. After a game of ups and downs, it was so exciting to see my New England Patriots come out on top. In addition to the game itself, one of the best things about the Superbowl is all of the amazing game day food. And while I admit…

Blood Orange Cosmopolitans

Citrus is definitely the bright spot of an otherwise dark and dreary month. Although we haven’t had much snow here in Boston, the weather has been cold and less than ideal. There are many reasons not to love the month of January. But can we all agree that the abundance of citrus makes it just a little…
