Give the Gift of Food

Posted by Ashley

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

One of my favorite things to do is give gifts, so it should come as no surprise that the holiday season is my favorite time of the year. Since buying presents for everyone you know can become an elaborate task, a fun and inexpensive alternative is making gifts for your loved ones instead! Homemade gifts not only show that person that you care enough to spend the time making something, but that you specifically thought about them while choosing and making the one-of-a-kind gift.

This year for Christmas, I’m gifting food. Mug cakes specifically. They are the perfect treat for when you want something sweet quickly, but aren’t feeling just a simple piece of candy or chocolate.  They’re also incredibly simple and perfect for anyone living in dorms or in small kitchens (like most of my friends!).  The Kitchn has a great roundup of tasty mug cake recipes to choose from.

Holiday Spirit(s)

Posted by Rachel

Monday, December 9, 2013

Happy Holidays! We are now two weeks into December, which means the season of holiday parties and family gatherings is approaching fast, if not already here for some of you. This time of year can be chaotic, but don’t fret! Whether you’re hosting the biggest bash of the year, or just want to relax by the fireplace, we’ve got you covered with a list of drinks that are sure to impress.

First up, there’s the Bubbly Poinsettia from A.J. Rathburn’s Champagne Cocktails. Have you ever tried a Shirley Temple? Before I turned 21, this was always my go-to drink. Well just like a Shirley Temple, the Bubbly Poinsettia is made with grenadine, which means it’s sweet, delicious, and of course, a beautiful shade of bright red. Even better, it has the extra kick that goes along with the other key ingredients – gin, champagne, and maraschino liqueur.
