Denver Breakfast Cups

Sometimes the tastiest of recipes happen on a whim. That's precisely how this one came about. I had some leftover baked ham and I've been trying to think of ways to use it up. A little egg-type breakfast muffin sounded interesting so I just threw some things together in a bowl. 20 minutes later I had a great, little breakfast bite!

A Peachy (Hard) Drink

I'm in love with this drink. Is that weird? Should I not be in love with a drink? If you taste it though, you'll know what I mean and you'll feel the same way.

I had never had peach-flavored vodka before the bottle of Ciroc that appeared at my house not too long ago. I just had to taste it and oh my, was it delicious. My immediate thought was that I could either drink it right out of the bottle or, more appropriately, make the best damn hard lemonade ever. I chose the latter. But by all means, if your choice is to drink it out of the bottle, you will not be judged here, my friend. Drink the tasty vodka however you please. I'd highly suggest giving this mix a try though. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed. The vodka itself is amazingly fresh and smooth and the addition of club soda and fresh lemon juice elevates it to a new level that is perfect.

Pink Lemonade Cookies

It's so hard to say no to my little guy when he asks if we can make cookies. If he asked more often I could, but it's usually only every couple months or so. I think I can let the boy splurge on cookies every two months...

Pureed Sweet Potato Soup with Candied Bacon

Not too long ago, I was sick with a nasty cold. This was one of those colds when a nice, warm soup is just the thing to get you all cozy and feeling better. And before you ask, I'm weird and love to cook when I'm sick. Always have. Probably always will.

Chinese Beef with Vegetables

Oh man. I've inadvertently gone a month(!) without a new post. This was not intentional. Every once in awhile, my work life just takes over and I get pretty busy. This is the case right now. In fact, this whole year has been crazy. I love it though. If I wasn't busy, I'd go crazy myself. But, there's probably a little crazy in there already...

Anyways, I come back to the blog world with this easy dinner. I have to admit that the picture doesn't really do it justice. It was one tasty meal and my lighting didn't really like the rice enough to make it drool-worthy. Trust me though, this is some serious good eating.
