Pound cake is such a nostalgic treat for me. I grew up loving my mom’s sour cream pound cake with lemon glaze. That firm, almost crunchy crust, the soft but somewhat dense and delicious interior, the sweet and tangy glaze. My mouth waters whenever I think about it. The whole dessert is perfect to me, […]

I’ve also made David’s summer by getting into Belgian style beer, something which I have never liked before and am now wondering how that was […]
I apologize for the length of time between this and my last post. I should have been better prepared with something to post from afar, as David and I have kind of been all over the place lately enjoying old friends, new friends, and family from Ohio, Canada, Boston and everywhere in between! Summer is such […]

This provocatively named cocktail is pleasantly tart and very smooth. It is stronger than it’s cousin the Sidecar, though perhaps lacks a bit of the Sidecar’s distinctive and enduring magic.
