I made boozy snow cones for the first time on Saturday. My friends and I went to Palm Springs for a girls weekend, and these were the perfect poolside drinks. At one point, my friend said to [...]

Berry Bruschetta with Honey Balsamic

The first time I ever tried a baked brie berry bruschetta dish was about 10 years ago at the News Cafe in Miami. My friend thought it was disgusting. I thought it was life changing. Not [...]
