We interrupt your regularly-scheduled Project Pastry Queen for a celebration! Emily of Ruf Love and her husband are expecting a sweet baby boy this summer and A Gilt Nutmeg (another Emily – we have 3!) is hosting a virtual shower filled with fabulous baby shower eats to celebrate.

Cherry Margaritas

Fresh Cherry Margaritas

With every trip to the grocery store over the last few weeks, we’ve picked up a big bag of cherries with 2-3 new recipes in mind. And then I don’t make any of them. Because there’s nothing wrong with standing at your kitchen island with a bag of cherries and a Diet Coke and calling [...]

Cantaloupe Margaritas

Cantaloupe Margaritas

I know I say this with just about every new margarita recipe… but this is definitely one of my favorites. I know I’ve mentioned Cantaloupe Margaritas a couple of times before – they are one of the very few margaritas that I like frozen. I simply substitute frozen cantaloupe in this recipe and then boom!

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!

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 [...]

PPQ: Guanabana Margaritas

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 [...]
