Red Sangria

If you ask me, sangria is the perfect drink to share with friends – it’s festive, fun, fruity, and refreshing. As cocktails go, it’s inexpensive and easy to make. For a knockout happy hour, mix up a pitcherful, invite people over, and…


If you ask me, sangria is the perfect drink to share with friends – it’s festive, fun, fruity, and refreshing. As cocktails go, it’s inexpensive and easy to make. For a knockout happy hour, mix up a pitcherful, invite people over, and sip cool glasses in the warm sun. Aaah, summer. These days, you can easily find sangria made with white wine or rosé, but in this recipe, I use red wine to make a more traditional, Spanish-style sangria. Obviously, I love it in the summertime, but because this recipe calls for red wine, it’s a great choice for year-round […]

A cold glass of this watermelon juice is everything I want on a warm summer day.

Instead, I make it with 3 basic ingredients: watermelon, lime juice, and ginger juice. Here’s […]

Does anyone else have a weakness for summer desserts? I definitely do. It’s funny, because for most of the year, I don’t think of myself as much of a dessert person. I might reach for a slice of banana bread at breakfast or crave a cookie in the afternoon, but by the evening, I’m rarely in the mood for something sweet. But all that changes in the summer. I’ll never turn down a bubbly fruit crumble topped with vanilla ice cream, brownies at a picnic, or a scoop of sorbet on a hot day. These summer desserts make the season […]

Here’s how much I love these oatmeal breakfast cookies: after I finish typing this post, I’m going to head to the kitchen to make more. They’re vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free, and they have fiber from the oats and protein and healthy fats from almond butter. Thanks to maple syrup, they’re naturally sweetened too. But these breakfast cookies aren’t just good for you. They’re also delicious! The same ingredients that pack them with nutrients give them a sweet, nutty flavor and soft, puffy texture. Who wants to eat a bowl of oatmeal when you can eat a cookie for breakfast!? Breakfast […]
