Frozen Mango Margaritas

Oh, hi! And happy Monday-Before-Cinco-de-Mayo! You’ve probably been able to infer… but I’m not really much of a frozen margarita girl, I’d much rather have my favorite cocktail poured over ice. But we love trying out new margarita flavors and there are just some fruits that just make a better frozen drink. Like the Mango [...]

Guava Margaritas. The Guavarita!

April 26, 2012
Guava Margaritas

In my pre-Foodie Bride days, my roommate and I shared an apartment in “No Man’s Land.” It was almost downtown, but not quite. It was also not a part of the 5 other well-known, nearby areas. But it was pouring distance from The Satellite Lounge (RIP), across the street from the original Star Pizza, and [...]

Guanabana Margaritas

It’s my week to host Project Pastry Queen! A turn that happens to coincide with the end of Lent so you know what that means. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. 40+ days without a margarita. There is much ground to be made up! Have you ever had guanabana? I hadn’t even heard of it before The [...]

Green Monster Smoothie

Totally honest here. I would have never, ever tried this if I hadn’t been “January motivated.” That “New Year-Healthier You” high can make a person do really crazy things. Like running to undo that afternoon cupcake snack. And enjoying it. Or deciding to stay in for a healthy dinner and dirty dishes rather than going [...]

Happy New Year!

Blackberry Margarita

We celebrated the way we always do in Texas: with a pitcher of margaritas and watching the neighbors set stuff on fire. Yeehaw. 1/3 of my household was asleep by 6:30 pm. 1/3 of my household was sick. And my third settled in with a carafe of Blackberry Margaritas, some crab & artichoke dip, a [...]

Homemade Baileys Marshmallows

Some days, regardless of how bright it is outside, are just… gray. A dear friend I made through blogging lost her father recently. We’re all just so heartbroken for her and her family’s loss.

Cranberry Margaritas

‘Tis the season – cranberry margarita season! It’s what comes between Raspberry Margarita Season and Grapefruit Margarita Season We’re big margarita people so finding new seasonal fruits to blend with tequila has become our Friday night hobby.
