In my hazy realm of childhood memory live two related events: The first time I plopped a scoop of my dad’s orange sherbet into a bowl of vanilla ice cream, and the first time I had an Orange Julius—that icy, OJ + dairy, beverage-stand joy.

Spring Dreamsicle Cake

What a sensation! Bright shock of citrus swathed in cream: cold and shimmery, sharp and smooth, all at once. To me, orange and cream is the stuff of dreams.

To start, I layer a tender yellow layer cake with orange curd, pile whipped cream over all, and then garnish with little wheels of candied orange and lemon. Note: I make my candied citrus slices the day before I made the cake.

The nice thing about this recipe is that you now have the recipe to make orange curd—great with toast, scones, or pannacotta. How to Make the Perfect Mashed Potatoes. Of all the beloved dishes on the holiday table, mashed potatoes are beloved-est.

Red Velvet Cake (All Natural!) It’s been a while since I’ve been to Beeville, TX. Not far from Normanna, Orangedale and Skidmore, it’s the Bee County seat, built around a typical Texas town square with an enormous Renaissance Revival courthouse at the center. It’s not like there’s a plaque or anything, but ask around, and you may find old timers who know the town’s connection to America’s long-lingering flavor obsession: Red Velvet.

Hot Cocoa, Rum and Peppermint

Rum can be served in a variety of ways. Hot, cold and at room temperature without diminishing the flavor or potency! Some of my most favorite methods of serving rum during the holidays in a hand held form. A hot toddy for instance is the perfect way to introduce your guests to the pleasures of rum. If they are not careful, a hot toddy will also introduce them to a pillow faster than you can say sleepy-time! Peppermint, hot chocolate and rum are one of these cocktails.

Chocolate Covered Amarena Cherries. I’ve never been a chocoholic.

Chocolate Covered Amarena Cherries

When I’m not eating sushi, I’m more of a bitter greens, pickled anything, charcuterie, good whiskey, savory pie and puff pastry girl. But it’s almost impossible not to think about chocolate on Valentine’s Day. For me? The choco-heart tradition is dipped in memories of my Aunt Ruth. Ruth had the loudest laugh, the thickest auburn hair, and the worst record of timeliness for any family gathering. Valentine’s Day gatherings with Ruth meant heart-shaped paper boxes stamped in gold, with satin bows, lace trim and little frilled paper cups full of chocolate covered cherries.

Just the very thought of a river, splashing over the rocks in the middle of the winter-the ice cold water stinging my face, well it brings me back. My thirst quickens and the day becomes much less astringent to my body. I’m propelled to the springtime where the days grow longer, yet the nights still remind me of the winter without the threat of snow.
