How to Make Peep-Infused Vodka

Plate o' Peeps

Flavored vodkas are growing in popularity, with dozens of flavors popping up where there were once only a few. Instead of basic lemon and lime-infusions, you can now find much more creative flavors like cake, whipped cream and marshmallow.

Decadent Chocolate Milkshake

Chocolate Milkshake

I usually keep my milkshakes nice and simple. Ice cream, milk, and a few extra fruits or syrups for flavoring, depending on what I’m in the mood for. Sometimes, however, I feel like making something a bit more decadent and I’ll use heavy cream instead of milk. I wouldn’t do it if I had a milkshake every day (unless I really needed the extra calories), ... Read More »

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Banana Smoothie

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Banana Smoothie

It doesn’t take much to put me in the mood to make some smoothies. A warm day and the motivation to pull out the blender are all I really need – and the warmer the day, the more likely I am to want to pull out that blender!
