Grapefruit Mimosa

A couple of weekends ago, we were crouched over a “Boss” burger and a bowl of Kerbey Queso when the server dropped off a frosty carafe full of a perfect pink drink at the table next to us. I contained my squeal but my “OHMYGODINEEDTHATRIGHTNOW” face was met with a silent, disapproving head-shake. After like [...]

The Palauxma (a virgin Paloma)

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Cinco de Mayo! We are gearing up for our 2nd Annual Taquitos & Tequila pool party and I’m playing around with party menu ideas. And looking for every other excuse to whip up a new pool-side drink. But I can’t decide which I dislike more to describe a [...]

Grapefruit Bars

Surpriiiiise! It’s another grapefruit recipe! I hope you’re not tired of them. Because I’m not. If you’re thinking that I must have an entire counter piled high with citrus, you wouldn’t be too terribly wrong. We’ve been cooking, eating, drinking, and baking with it a lot lately.

Lighter Grapefruit Scones

With a bounty (15 lbs!) of beautiful Texas grapefruit, Grapefruit Scones were one of the first things on my list to tackle after we replaced our broken oven.

Grapefruit Creme Brulee

This week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge was selected by Sarah of 20 Something Cupcakes: Espresso Creme Brulee. With a broken oven and no one else in the house on-board with a coffee-flavored dessert, I was going to take a pass. But then my oven came in a week early. So we celebrated. With Grapefruit Creme [...]
