Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Posted by Emily

Thursday, May 7, 2015

We’ve all heard that when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, it’s the thought that counts. Most moms we know love your homemade, unique gifts more than that nice necklace they have been eying at the jewelry counter for months (or at least that’s what they’ll tell us!). That doesn’t mean that the thought has to be last minute or hastily done though. We’re not talking the macaroni jewelry or painted cards from your elementary years, we’re talking sophisticated, impressive homemade food gifts…

Fresh Rhubarb Tea Cake Recipe

For something relatively easy to make that will ship well if you’re far from your momma this mother’s day (like me!) try your hand at these Cottage Style Fresh Rhubarb Tea Loaves. They’re perfect for moms who love coffee and tea, and calories don’t count if your kid makes it for you!

Does mom love all things spicy and sweet? Consider giving her this mild Mango and Tomatillo Salsa....

Earth Day Refreshers

Happy Earth Day! Every year when this day rolls around, I start to think a lot more about what it means to be “green.” At Emerson, we talk a lot about sustainability (I’m even taking a class on it!)… back home in California we’ve been recycling since before it was on-trend and are very concerned about water waste… and at HCP, we are very into learning about and trying all things organic. This Watermelon Aguafresca from Paul Abercrombie’s Organic, Shaken and Stirred sounds like the perfect way to kick off this warm-weather streak we’re getting, and a great way to pay homage to Earth Day.

Organic Watermelon Aguafresca Cocktail

Recipe: Watermelon Aguafresca

Watermelon’s juicy ripeness and rum’s sultry smokiness really bring out the clove-like spice of basil in this super-refreshing drink.

Ingredients

  • • Handful of organic basil leaves, chopped
  • • 2 pinches of salt
  • • 6 ounces organic watermelon juice (about a heaping handful of seeded watermelon chunks, pureed and...

Kids Juice Recipes

As this semester comes to a close, I’ve begun to think about all the fun things I can do to fill my days off while I’m home this summer. Family has always been the most important part of every break from school I’ve had, and with more and more little cousins coming into my life, I’m getting frequent opportunities to babysit. I’ve never been very good at determining what kids can or should have to snack on, often erring more on the side of caution against sugary treats, but I think I have a good idea about what I want to test out this summer… juices! It’s easy to throw a kid a sugar-packed juice box and call it a day, but I’m looking forward to making my own treats with them. I’m turning to Jessica for recipes, because her juice creations are sugar-free, packed with nutrients, and kid-approved!

The little ones...
