No weird tricks are involved for this green cocktail – just a little muddled basil!
A day in the orchard in a glass – for the grown ups.
One of my favorite fall treats – unfiltered apple cider – gets the cocktail treatment!
Good morning from the first day of winter in Portland. Somehow, school is canceled. There isn’t a single flake of snow on the ground. I’m a little grumpy about not getting the snow I was promised.

The perfect opportunity came this past weekend when my friend Callie and her fiance Aaron came to stay with us! We spent the morning shopping and visiting the Portland Farmers Market. We got ingredients […]
