The strawberry balsamic syrup, recipe found here, is great to keep around the house. Try it as an ice cream topping or experiment with your own cocktails! This one is a favorite of Sauce’s and the name comes from a Four Seasons song, one…

Troop 21

troop 21 a dessert cocktail by sauce and shake

Not to brag or anything, but there are five boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in our house right now. Between March Madness and these cookies, this time of year is just what I need to shake off the early spring blues. This is definitely…

Salty’s Skirt Steak Tacos

Salty is not much of a cook, but when it comes to grilling, the man loves his craft. He also loves his steak, so nothing makes him more eager to help than a delectably marinated piece of beef. Shake throws in her margaritas, I…

Mai Tai

Apples Are Forever

When Ms. Hot Pot came over, we debated apples in cocktails for quite a while. In particular the fact I’ve not really had a whole lot with hard cider OR apples in general that I enjoyed. Fast forward a few weeks and we’ve developed…

Mexican Grilled Cheese

Mexican Grilled Cheese

Tortilla Soup is a household favorite, but I prefer to make a lighter style that sometimes leaves hungry folk wanting more. Last weekend my cousin came to visit for a doggy playdate in the snow, so I decided to make a twist on grilled…
