This is a classic, but we decided to Halloween-ify it for the season. Now, we know this might be a throw back to your college years, but it’s still a great cocktail. Choose high quality vodka (something like Stoli, Grey Goose or Absolute) as well as a great orange juice, we usually buy the Simply Orange brand.

I'm still very much not unpacked. But today is Friday, and rather than spend my weekend digging through boxes, spackling drywall, or scrubbing tar out of the carpet, at exactly 14:45 I'm boarding a Bolt Bust and heading to NYC for the weekend to leave my troubles behind catch up with some of the loves of my pre and post blogging life.

Dishoom is a relatively new Indian cafe in London serving Bombay street food. Steve and I love it and particularly recommend the vada pau and the virgin bombalada - a spicy remake of the classic cocktail the virgin pina colada.

Last week I spent almost an hour in the store – in the Halloween aisle(s). The manufacturers have put their best marketers to work and they have their sites on easy targets like me. No idea has been left unpack aged.

When it comes to brunch, a number of dishes come to mind. Bacon with pancakes piled high, eggs benedict with hollandaise, steak and eggs, anyone? A mimosa or three? Don’t get me wrong, I love all of those things. Honestly I think there needs to be more hollandaise in my life, although my doctor probably wouldn’t agree.

t may not be blueberry season but it’s a good time for smoothies. The cranberries add a really nice flavor and beautiful color. Water is good for you and I know you should drink a lot of it but sometimes on beautiful sunny fall days that reach 80 degrees it’s nice to have a refreshing smoothie just like this.

It’s like mother nature is passing out crack to everyone. People are running around, gushing and crying over pumpkin bread, pea coats, and falling leaves. Chilaxx people.

During a recent trip to Copenhagen, I stayed an extra day to explore (and revisit) its bars, courtesy of the Danish Cherry Heering liqueur. My job was to run around and drink Cherry Heering cocktails at the best bars in town: tough job!

Ok, so admittedly cute little candy corns aren’t exactly “spooky” when it comes to Spooky Eats Week, but they fit into the Halloween theme…so…here they are.

I heard a commercial for Dunkin' Donuts' pumpkin products on the radio the other day that made me laugh. This guy goes to order, and finds out the pumpkin flavor is only available for a limited time during fall. So he wants to load up on pumpkin donuts & muffins... in some random lady's purse and also some other guy's briefcase. Plus a dump truck for the coffee.

A collection of health enhancing juices which not only replenish,restore and revitalize. You'll be surprised how wonderful the flavors can be. Experiment and make your own concoctions but here are some ideas which I make everyday at home. And here its for you :)

So this is how it went. Our neighbours came up trumps again by donating a big basket of beautiful little Discovery apples from their tree. I must send George round to fetch his ball back more often.

A couple of days ago, one of our neighbors, Jill, stopped by and gave me a huge bag filled with freshly picked limes. The following day, Jon came upstairs with 5 fresh Guavas he had picked from the tree at the entrance of our property.

I am always looking for a way to incorporate more vegetables into my toddler’s diet. I came up with this recipe during my quest to make smoothies that tasted great and were really healthy as well.

We had this drink for breakfast today. Clearly it is me who is in charge of food and drinks in our family. It is possible you might find more ‘HEHEs’ in this post for some reason that I don’t really understand.

Every time we shop at the Asian grocery store the kids always nag at me for a drink. There’s something about the bright packaging and weird shaped cartons that seems to make them want it more than the standard orange juice seen elsewhere.

I wish I liked coffee. I can’t even count the number of coffee drink recipes out there that I am tempted by. But I just can’t get over the coffee flavor.

While on vacation in August, for some reason, someone in Mr.Surly's family got a craving for a Bloody Mary. No one really knew how to make a bloody mary, so Mr.Surly's sister, an aspiring NYC bartender, took charge of the task.

t was love at first sip. Yep, that is what I would say when I tasted iced tea at Dunkin Donuts for the first time, few years ago. Throughout my masters days in Syracuse , I would drink atleast a tall-sized fresh iced tea, with an order of toasted everything bagel w/ cream cheese & hash browns on the side, every single day! It was much later I realised how good it is to regularly drink a cuppa of green tea.

I admit, I didn’t have a specific recipe in mind for how to use my vanilla-maple almond milk when I first whipped out the blender and cheesecloth. It was more of whim kitchen experiment that ended with success, even if I did get nut pulp everywhere.

Slept in late, and had a nice yoga session upon waking up. I’m still feeling that hike from the other day, so it was nice to stretch so much.

The Sazerac is rumored to be the very first cocktail ever created. Though this may not really be true, it makes for a nice story anyway.

Drinking tea is of course a Great British tradition, and nothing is more lovely than an afternoon spent basking in the sunlight enjoying gorgeous cream tea with a close friend. Well it’s with this in mind that today’s T&T is aiming to capture that loveliness with a Sweet Tea Cocktail to accompany scrummy Cream Tea Canapes

In truth, I have been feeling off-it for about three weeks now - supposedly stomach flu but it is taking its sweet, sweet time to go. Not a great situation for a food blogger.

For inspiration, co-owner Eyal Raziel looked to his native Israel, where honey liqueur is popular. "The Bärenjäger balances the kick of the rye," he says.

Summer is coming to a close soon, but I wanted to share my new favorite summer drink...HOMEMADE RASPBERRY LEMONADE! This recipe includes raspberries, but I have also added strawberries; other fruits would work well in here also. It is so easy to make and I would recommend it to all of you. And of course; homemade is always better!

Now, I don’t know whether I had really gained that much, as I refused to step on the scale to find out. All I know is I’d *ahem* let loose while I was there and my body had suffered the consequences. Big time. One can’t go having Pina Coladas and Mojitos, and Margaritas, and Cappuccinos and tons of sweet cakes and cookies every day without paying some kind of price.

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.
