Grilled Pineapple Margarita

Grilled Pineapple Margarita

Grilled pineapple is currently my very, very favorite thing on the planet. ‘Cause Lord knows, the soccer-hockey-basketball trifecta of worthless sports sure as hell isn’t. HOW IS IT NOT FOOTBALL SEASON YET?! {I would just like to note that since posting this, I have now watched more soccer than in my seven previous lifetimes combined. [...]

Spicy Jalapeño & Watermelon Margarita

Spicy Jalapeño and Watermelon Margarita Recipe

“All good drinks burn on their way down, right?” –Me. Between coughs and gasps for air. I still remember the very first time I made a spicy margarita.

Strawberry Margaritas

Strawberry Margaritas

Crammed into the busting-at-the-seams bottom drawer of my freezer is a collection of leftover bowls filled with… leftovers. There’s chili and chicken stock. And something that’s either more chili or possibly a meaty marinara sauce (I’ll find out for sure tomorrow – please let it be chili!). And then there’s the bowl of strawberry puree. [...]

Tangerine Margaritas

Tangerine Margarita

I’m totally loving reading all your responses to the giveaway questions – and watched Elf tonight because of it – but I can’t respond in-line because then I throw off the comment numbering system and then the random generator thingy might just stab me. And then there’s no one here to unload the diswasher. Tragedy. [...]
