Thirsty Thursday: Sparkling Wine Sangria Cocktail

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we shared a recipe for our Prosecco Gold […]

Eggnog may have originated in England, but Mexican convents have perfected it as rompope, Cubans have their own sugary version called crema […]

Porcini Barley Soup With Sherry

This was my favorite soup growing up. It was very brothy and meaty, despite the fact that it was often made with vegetable stock.
