Tomorrow’s 4th of July.  Next thing you know Santa will be coming to town.  Where is the time going lately? Augh…sigh. Anyhow, I saw these beautious layered drinks ( on one of my BBF’s (Best Blogger Friends) Aimee’s blog, Like Mother, Like Daughter ( – sorry my link insert button seems to be on vacation) […]

#TBT with Skinny Frozen Mudslides

by Kate on May 30, 2013

When I posted the recipe for these last year, I was still getting my blog legs underneath me.  My cousin Krissy was in town for a visit, and I was anxious to celebrate with one of our favorite cocktails (hence this wretched photo). But today I’m RE-posting them because: 1) Summer is among us, and […]

10 Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes

by Kate on May 7, 2013

This past Sunday, my mom hosted an early Mother’s Day Brunch for my grandmother and my aunts. She figured since she’d be waiting for me to cross the finish line (hopefully before sunset) on the real Mother’s Day, it’d be a great excuse to get everyone together!

Cinco de Mayo Cocktail Roundup

by Kate on April 29, 2013

Cinco de Mayo is Sunday! It’s like St. Patricks Day with margaritas swapped out for guinness and 9 times out of 10 the weather will be a smidge warmer (that’s if you don’t live in New England of course – in that case, it’s anyone’s guess). So why not try some of these fabu cocktails […]

Spring Sangria

by Kate on March 30, 2013

Tomorrow’s Easter Sunday.  How did that happen? I’ve personally always liked the idea of holidays that involve brunch, and that is just what Easter Sunday is – you wake up, find your Easter basket that that 6 foot bunny who pulled a Santa 3 months later and spent all of Saturday night hiding Easter baskets […]

Ginger Pomegranate Sparkler

by Kate on January 3, 2013

I think the days following January 1st should have a disclaimer that reads “Don’t operate any heavy machinery today”.  Ugh.  The excitement level has dropped about 20 notches, our wallets are a lighter, our tummies heavier (or mine anyway) – back to work, back to reality, back to winter in New England (or in whatever […]

Skinny Frozen Mudslides

by Kate on July 27, 2012

I know, I know – it’s goat cheese week and I’m posting a recipe for Skinny Frozen Mudslides.  But I had a REALLY good reason for cheating on goat cheese tonight: my cousin Krissy is in town from Atlanta and heading down to the cape tomorrow for a couple weeks of R&R (jealous). The Cape is a special […]

 This Thirsty Thursday is a special one – the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions, the Boston Bruins are playing their first playoff game of the 2012 season in Boston against the Washington Capitals (no need to hyperlink the competition)! Can they do it again? I sure think so! Dave is a ginormous bruins fan – I […]
