Mocktail Monday: A Pop of Pomegranate

Forget Manic Monday, it’s a MOCKTAIL MONDAY Baby! Our resident foodie, Ray, has provided us with a pomegranate martini, or for the sake of wordplay: momtini.  I am just going to let him explain this one to you… This simple pomegranate spritzer is kinda sweet, kinda tart, but totally refreshing. A uniquely zingy pick-me-up for […]

Servings: 1                   […]

THANKFUL – EMPHASIS ON FULL

Last Thanksgiving was a magical time in my life. I was pregnant, and knew I was having another daughter. I was hosting. The air was crisp, cool and I was allowing myself to eat turkey, even though I was primarily vegetarian prior to getting pregnant again. And above all else, I had no food guilt. […]
