I thought Iâ€™d start with a simple smoothie recipe to get yaâ€™ll in the mood for pollen, but there are many ways of incorporating these amazing golden granules into your daily diet. Sprinkle it on your morning cereal or lunch-time salad, top your desserts, add to salad dressing, or fold it into your raw food snacks (like The Raw Brownie perhaps?).

My very first date with my husband we decided to go out for floats. But when we got to the restaurant they told us they didnâ€™t serve floats.

I have to confess something. When I first heard that the next round of â€œLetâ€™s Lunchâ€, was a liquid lunch, I instantly thought â€œMARTINIâ€

Here's to you, Midnight Interlude, and to Bob Baffert and Victor Espinoza. Make that late run for the roses and I'll be toasting you with a shot of Kentucky bourbon and a big bite of this decadent dessert I've created in your honor!

Even though wine is my first love, a good craft beer is also high on my list. Any time I am working near Burbank I always make time to swing into Tonyâ€™s Darts Away for some amazing food and a nice cold brew.

If you are looking at German wines in your average wine shop, Germany can seem like a monoculture: there is Riesling as far as the eye can see and little else.

Itâ€™s a margarita, itâ€™s a beerâ€¦itâ€™s both! Thatâ€™s right, this satisfying Cinco de Mayo cocktail is a margarita laced with beer. If you like a slice of lime with your Corona or Pacifico, then you will love this drink!

If you plan on watching the Derby this weekend, do yourself a favor; put on your straw boater or big feathery hat, pick the horse with the silliest name to root for and mix up this delicious little Southern sipper.

I prepared a sweet rum-based cocktail that screams Summer from top to bottom. So put on your sandals and come cheer me with this fresh drink in a stress-free atmosphere open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I can safely say that tamarind pods are among the strangest ingredient weâ€™ve ever worked with. Beneath their egg-like shell is a sticky pulp that covers a handful of hard seeds.

Iâ€™m sharing a shoot that I put together with some of my friends that has a splendid pink lemonade recipe I worked on while trying to find a balance of ingredients that not only tasted great but had the perfect shade of pink.

Horchata de arroz is a deliciously refreshing Mexican beverage made from rice, milk, sugar and cinnamon and served chilled over ice. Wonderful for those who are lactose intolerant if you substitute the milk for almond milk.

There are lots of health benefits and vitamins in papaya. This goes to healing food sukham coolers, summer coolers, only event mocktails and coolers.

For the past few weeks I've been working on a special cocktail recipe! Last month I was invited to participate in Kitchen Play's Progressive Party for May! In case you haven't been to one of the parties, it's a unique concept that brings together cooks, bloggers and foodies.

Opera rehearsals have been taking their toll lately, and I feel like Iâ€™ve barely seen Joel at all these past 3 weeks. However, I was lucky enough to have a couple of my rehearsals cancelled this weekend, so Joel and I made plans for a little celebration at home.

People kept asking for the recipe and I was embarrassed to tell them it actually wasn't from scratch and only had 2 ingredients. Work smart not hard, right?

As the warmer weather arrives, all the red wine and hot punch from the winter months becomes less desirable. The thought of warming my hands over a mug of mulled cider, as I so often did this winter, no longer seems appealing; with spring, thoughts of fresh herbs, flower blossoms, fizzes and flips take center stage!

Dessert is, quite obviously, my most favorite meal of all, much to my waistlineâ€™s dismay. Luckily, there are alternatives.

This is my all time favorite transition drink. After wasting all too many of my youthful years on cheap rum and coke.

A cool glass of honey ginger lemonade seems just right on one of those lovely, long, lazy days outside. It starts with simple syrup made from equal parts water and honey, heated briefly to dissolve. Into that goes the â€œzing,â€ a few ounces of grated ginger, and itâ€™s left to infuse.

I like tart things, and I loved the way the ginger and lemon combined with the gin. I am sure it would be fine with vodka too.

Numerous bloggers have posted recipes and reasons as to why it is called Chicken 65, so I am not gonna ramble.

Since I enjoy a little bling in my life, I created this drink to look like Lady Di's/Kate's engagement ring. So while little Dae and I curl up on the couch to watch the Wedding of the Century we will sip these bubbly drinks- the grape juice version, eat some tea sandwiches, along with scones with cream and jam. And don't forget the tea!

Thereâ€™s something about a mango thatâ€™s just so quintessentially summer. Theyâ€™re bright and juicy, with a slightly bite to their sweetness.

Remembering my refreshing signature cocktail from last summer, I decided to make a cooling drink featuring my current favorite treat. I love herby notes in my cocktails and more tart drinks so these are perfect for me. These are delicious with and without the alcohol so feel free to enjoy them either way.

Itâ€™s no secret that I am a major beer enthusiast; a hophead, if you will. Iâ€™ve been thinking about learning how to brew for years, but condo living, time, and fear of the unknown kept me from taking the plunge. Well, tonight I opened up my first bottle of homebrewed Irish stout and had a drink.
