You know, I admit my subscription box trials are a bit minimal and there are only a few food boxes. To date I have tried Conscious Box, Try the World, Bulu Box, Bestwoed, and my favorite Graze (which I have kept my subscription for a long time.) But, I recently tried Love With Food and I have to tell you, as cliché as this may sound, I am in love. [Read more…]
Tea time! For me it’s always tea time. I am a girl who loves her tea and I don’t try to hide it. My slight tea obsession is starting to take over the kitchen. I have around 30 varieties nicely organized in one of the kitchen drawers. My teapot collection takes up residence in the China cabinet at the opposite end of the kitchen. My tea cups, I claim are for photography purposes. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. My tea obsession might be the only thing I am really girly about. It’s here I love pretty things!

It’s Recipe Redux time again! I am so excited because I have been hanging on to my homemade dandelion tea for a few weeks now. If you follow my Instagram you always get a sneak peek into the YUM world and what I am currently working on.
This months theme for Recipe Redux was:
Floral Flavors – Nothing brightens up a dish like a real flower! Whether you live in the northern or the southern hemisphere, edible flowers can add flavor and aroma to salads, breads, spreads, desserts or dips. Make your recipe bloom with rose water, flowering herbs, floral teas, dried lavender blossoms or even fresh flowers like nasturtiums, violets, borage, squash, sunflowers or pretty much any blossom in a vegetable garden.
It doesn’t matter how many places I travel to in the state of Michigan, East Tawas will always be my favorite.
Where I currently live is just a few miles from where I lived as a small child before moving to Oklahoma. It is also a few miles from my grandparents house with a sprinkle of aunts, uncles and cousins here and there.
As a young girl I remember frequent trips to Tawas. When I moved to Oklahoma I couldn’t wait to come back every summer just so I could have a girl trip with my mother, grandmother, aunts and cousins.
I’m no stranger to a Hot Toddy. I remember being very young and my mother making these for me when I was sick. Way better than NyQuil I’m telling you. I know this is something that has been in my family for years because my grandmother made them as well. When children became ill, whiskey and tea were almost always in the house.
What better way to create a homemade NyQuil using materials on hand instead of rushing out the store for processed cold medicines. I think our grandparents and great-grandparents were really on to something.
