Warm Up With This Maple Cardamom Rose Latte Recipe

Have I mentioned before that coffee is my favorite thing ever? Well if you didn’t know before, know you do. Coffee is my liquid gold! Nine times out of ten, I’m a total plain jane, opting for a full-bodied cup with just a splash of milk or cream (dairy or non). But on the occasion, I really enjoy a fancied up specialty bev. One with spices, florals and a touch of sweetener. The recipe I’m…

How to Make a Lemon Rosemary Gin Moscow Mule

It’s a constant internal debate on whether or not the moscow mule or the old-fashioned is my favorite adult drink. On the one hand, you have the spicy, bubbly mule made with ginger beer, herbs and citrus, but on the other you have a warming and full-bodied bourbon cocktail. I mean, how’s a girl to choose?! It’s truly impossible; and seeing as I’ve never been one to pick favorites, we’ll call it a delightful draw.…

How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

I know, I know. The universe probably wasn’t looking for another recipe on homemade almond milk. But in the spirit of wanting to be a one-stop wellness and sustainability shop, here we are! It’s been about 2 years since I first made homemade almond milk and, if I’m being honest, I haven’t made it all too often since. Not because it isn’t incredibly simple, but because it’s really easy to put a carton of store…

Rosemary Grapefruit Champagne Cocktail

I thought I was done posting for 2018, but then I made an impromptu champagne cocktail for tonight and decided I wanted to get this short recipe up immediately — in the event you folks might still be searching for a festive NYE beverage. This drink might be bit extra in terms of ingredients, but truthfully I had everything already on hand with the exception of the champagne. You could certainly skip out on a…

How to Cultivate a Sustainable Coffee Ritual

If I’ve learned one thing about sustainability through the past year, its to respect progress over perfection. Ideally, we could create a more sustainable home environment at the drop of a hat, but the reality is that making a shift towards a more eco-conscious way of living can require the investment of both time and money. I’ve also learned, however, that at any given time you can easily start making more intentional decisions that help…

Chai Spiced Old Fashioned

I’ve had a terrible post-wedding habit of creating and photographing a recipe and then never writing the post for it. But as the days since the wedding increase, I realize that it’s time to really get back at it with my blog – as I type this I’m on the third post draft in a row! Isn’t it crazy how waves of inspiration work? Alas, I’ve finally brought you my chai spiced old fashioned recipe!…

How To Make Lavender Simple Syrup

In life’s busiest times, the best thing we can do is remember to stop and enjoy the simplest little things! One of my joys: enjoying a cup of coffee or a delicious latte. I recently tried a lavender cold brew coffee from a local shop and was inspired to recreate a lavender simple syrup for my own homemade beverages. I’ve made regular simple syrup on numerous occasions, but I’ve never ventured into the realm of…

Cold Brew Coffee + Self Improvement

By the looks of it, summer is here to stay for a while — thank goodness the mornings have mostly been cool enough to enjoy hot coffee. When it comes to the muggy ones though, or a hot afternoon, nothing beats a tall glass of cold brew coffee. While relatively simple, and easy to do without a recipe, I wanted to share a short how-to for anyone whose maybe hesitated in making cold brew coffee…

Maple Bourbon Cherries

Over the past couple years, Corey and I have acquired a love for creating cocktails at home. While the Moscow Mule is a trusty go-to for most occasions, our favorite night cap or date night beverage is the old fashioned. We’ve made quite a few variations involving different herbs and fruits, but there is something so smooth and classic about the standard version: bourbon, orange zest, bitters, cherry. My one hang up when it comes…
