Red, White and Blue Charcuterie Board

Patriotic themed charcuterie board with red, white and blue fruit and star shaped cookies.

It's fun to serve red, white and blue themed food for the 4th of July but I'm not a fan of using food color just for the sake of making things look patriotic. Fortunately, it's easy enough to do naturally with a bounty of summer fruit.

Fresh Apricot Bourbon Fizz

Recipe for a bourbon cocktail with fresh muddled apricots, lime juice and elderflower liqueur.

The other day I had the pleasure of being invited to speak about current foodie topics during an Instagram happy hour chat with Michal from Seasoned Moments. She asked that I give her a cocktail idea that she could make for our conversation and I suggested this bourbon fizz.

Chocolate Mug Cake with Peanut Butter Sauce

Recipe for a single serving chocolate cake, cooked in a microwave, and topped with a peanut butter glaze.

I've made quite a few batches of chocolate mug cakes lately, and have been forced to taste them all in the name of research. I do this for all of you, of course. Because I want to make sure that I give you a recipe for the fluffiest cake with just the right amount of everything. It's a tough job.
