Mango Saffron Ginger Ice Cream

About once a year or so, I take out my ice cream maker and use it obsessively for a couple weeks, before storing it away and not thinking about making ice cream again for months and months and months.

This years binge resulted in a few batches of sorbet (like this Simple Cantaloupe Sorbet), a straightforward mango ice cream (for Eugene, who prefers his ice creams straightforward), and this very NOT straightforward Mango Saffron Ginger Ice Cream for myself.

Simple Cantaloupe Sorbet

This Simple Cantaloupe Sorbet recipe is about as easy as it gets. Just pop a few things in a blender, puree, freeze in your ice cream maker and boom! Sweet and refreshing sorbet that tastes just as good (or maybe even slightly better!) than the fruit itself.

Spicy Pineapple Cilantro Moscow Mules

Show me a cocktail menu, and I will immediately order the spiciest thing I see. And if it's got a bit of fresh herbs or tart fruit in it? Even better!

These Spicy Pineapple Cilantro Moscow Mules are perfect for summer parties. You can prep them in advance, then mix just before drinking.

One-Pot Spicy Pineapple Chicken Tacos

Work has been bringing me all over the country lately, which is great, but it also means being away from home for stretches of days at a time. Eugene is generally pretty good about sorting out meals while I'm gone, but I do like to try and make it a little bit easier by leaving a few simple things behind that he can easily heat up or at least use as the base for several meals.

Grilled Lime Mojitos

Well it's officially summer, which means it's time to throw everything on the grill and never go inside!

(Well, on the weekends, at least!)

Summer is also prime cocktail season, and I'm excited to share this smoky twist on one of my forever faves--Grilled Lime Mojitos!

The Everything Summer Salad (Watermelon, Corn & Cucumber Salad with Avocado Vinaigrette)


I call this my Everything Summer Salad, because it's a mix of some of my favorites of the season. Juicy watermelon, crisp cucumber and radishes, sweet corn, and ripe avocados. Served with diced cilantro and a handful of fresh cheese, it hits all the perfect summer flavor notes.

5 Spanish Wines to Sip & Serve this Summer

If you're anything like me (and like most people!), you tend to buy and order the same wines over and over again. There's nothing wrong with that, but I think summer should be a time of trying new and different things, and in this case? That means new and different wines!

That's why I pulled together this easy summer wine cheat sheet for you. Whether you're looking to mix things up with something new, or just looking for the best wine to mix in your next batch of party sangria, I've got you covered!
