So to kick-start fall (even though I totally had a pumpkin scone in June... and already posted pumpkin churros), I made this pumpkin spice syrup.

I used this smoothie as a recovery meal after my 6-mile run the other day, and it kept me full for hours. It’s simple, surprisingly low in sugar and calories, and amped up in protein. It’s really the perfect recovery or replacement meal smoothie.

This month I am in the transition of moving from the midwest to the northeast US. It is over 2000 miles of travel to relocate. The process is tedious at best, but for a foodie it is even more nerve-racking.

It’s a delicious twist on the classic lemonade you know and love and a great drink to end the season of fun in the sun. So, here is a recipe to make a pitcher for you and your kids and enjoy the last bit of summer.

In the past week I’ve been to more parties, taken in more sunsets, and attended more family dinners than most people do in a year. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but only just a little.

Have you ever tried Starbucks' Apple Chai Infusion that they sell in the fall & winter? I fell in love with it last winter and it's still one of my favorite drinks! (Here's a tip: It's not on the menu, but they can make it year-round if you ask for it!)

Still riding the high of my recent LET’S-MAKE-EVERYTHING-FROM-SCRATCH! revelation I decided it was time for a little home alchemy thanks to a friend who, in exchange for my photographic services, presented me with a rather large bottle of vodka. Lovely.

Ok, perhaps the last two pumpkin treats were slightly premature considering it was still almost 80 degrees outside. But yesterday, it was a crisp and sunny 65. I wore jeans and grabbed a fleece in the late afternoon when the sun went down. Sounds like pumpkin weather to me!

I was recently invited by Rob Masters, Distiller at Boulder Distillery and owner of Rob’s Mountain Gin to attend a monthly event that is held for folks in the hospitality and liquor industry in the Denver to Boulder corridor.

This simple and tasty chocolate milkshake is a great one to get the kids involved in, they will enjoy drizzling the sauce, making the mess and watching the colours change yet most of all they will enjoy

I’m fully aware that it’s not summer, but when it’s 80 degrees and strawberries are still front and center at Whole Foods, I’m left with no choice. It’s popsicles, ice coffee and these, Riesling strawberry slushies.

Looking for a delicious and refreshing cocktail for your college football or NFL tailgate this weekend? Maybe you need a drink to make to make while watching your team play on TV. Well look no further than this John Daly.

I love caramel apples... I know that fall has truly arrived when I start to see them covered with chopped nuts and cased in plastic containers in the produce isle at the grocery store.

As summer comes to a close, I could not miss celebrating a Thursday "Ladies Night" without a watermelon martini. The Watermelon Martini is a refreshing, summery sweet drink. I love it and am so excited to share it with you. Well happy Thursday and welcome to "Ladies Night".

Ok, if you live in Los Angeles or basically almost anywhere in the US, you know it's hot, hot, hot here right now. I saw the temp hit 103 degrees today... Now if you live in Las Vegas I'm sure you think I'm a total wimp right now, but it's hot!

The season seems to be turning now with the occasional nip in the air and the trees and hedgerows are laden with autumn fruit. This drink is most definitely an autumn delight which is packed with vitamin C to help fight off the colds that are so often rife as this time of year.

Aren't we always looking for a fun, delicious, SIMPLE cocktail we can serve via a pitcher?!

In Alabama, cold drinks are mandatory near the close of each work day…or maybe I should say just somewhere around 3 pm, when the day is at its hottest and humidest (and this is what humidity does to your brain in Alabama).

An Adult Milkshake. Yesss Please! Easy and amazing!

For a period of time, I was in a smoothie phrase and I’d crave for a yoghurt shake after lunch each day. At the fruit juice stalls near my office, the mangoes always look soooo succulent and tantalising, so I often ended up ordering mango yoghurt smoothie at 35 baht a pop.

With summer continuing to grace us with scorching days, we looked to our flourishing pots of mint for cocktail inspiration. It was high time to tried some icy and refreshing mint juleps.

I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I worked at a cozy college bar called “The Library” for a couple of years. It’s a small bar with a large, shaded patio—the perfect place to go for good conversation and cheap drinks. While I was working there, I learned which beers I liked amongst our 32 taps and developed a taste for olives and bloody Marys.

Here's a healthy routine that is recommended for daily drinking. I've began doing this recently after hearing a homeopath doctor preach the benefits on a talk show. Squeezing a lemon in water every morning, that can't be too difficult, right? Lemons have come down in price a lot recently, so one thing to do is add 7 extra lemons to your grocery list so you have a lemon a day and you're set to go for the week. If you want to do half a lemon that's fine too, I can't see why not!

Autumn cannot officially arrive soon enough. I love fall. Without question, my favorite season of all. The crisp, cool, air, the warm sweaters, the fallen leaves, gorgeous orange pumpkins and warm, steamy cups of lattes and hot chocolates. What isn't to love?

So for today I have this very simple smoothie that I made for snack time the other day. If you have frozen bananas this is a snap to make. I have been storing my over-ripe bananas in the freezer, so they can be used in some way or the other rather than throwing them out.

Orange juice, sweet green grapes, a banana and a handful of spinach combine to make this the easiest (and possibly the tastiest) green smoothie I make. If you are new to green smoothies, this is an excellent place to start. This was the first green smoothie that I tried and I have loved it from the start.

Summer vacation may be over for those of you whose schedules revolve around the school-year, but the Summer heat is definitely sticking around for a bit longer. My poor hometown of Austin is still seeing temperatures well above 100 degrees, close to 110 yesterday to be exact. Sounds like the perfect time to share my favorite way to cool off on a hot Summer day: with a refreshing sparkling limeade.

This melon smoothie is so light and fresh, and great for a post-workout snack. The honeydew melon and garden cucumbers just scream “summer” to me. I can almost feel fall creeping up on us, and in my attempt to enjoy the tastes of summer for as long as possible, I bring you my green melon summer smoothie!

In Italy, basil symbolizes love, and l can tell you my family has a love affair with this beautiful herb. In the summer we grow so much basil, we usually have to give it away. Shake up your summer BBQ with my Basil, Peach and Raspberry Sangria. The fresh taste of basil goes so well with the peach and raspberries that it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Alright, this post is for the kids, the sad poor little kids who have to be forced back into little uniforms, or stiff uncomfortable desks, while grumpy teachers stare at them disapprovingly....I loved school. I really did. Elementary, junior high, high school, college, grad school, you name it, I loved it. Why? That's where my friends were! I saw school as seven hours a day where I got to see my friends. The classes and homework were just a side-note...during which I passed notes.
