They may not seem like much, but in the early 1900′s, flavored sodas (and ice cream sodas) became quite popular. So popular in fact, uptight teetotalers declared them “immoral” and banned them on Sundays. Sheesh.
Please don’t go running off! I KNOW this smoothie looks anything but appetizing, but trust me- it is! It really is! It’s smooth, refreshing and chock FULL of vitamins and good-for-you fruits and veggies!
This summer when it is hot outside, and you are thinking about stopping by the nearest Starbucks to get one of their cold caffeine pick me ups, you can remember this delicious recipe for Ice Coffee . Everything you may be familiar with about brewing coffee, might be the fast brew method which extracts the flavor elements quickly. This recipe I used the cold brew method which takes time, however, it dissolves through the grounds only certain elements of the coffee. It doesn't take any more effort to prepare coffee this way than most hot brewing methods. It just takes more time for it to brew, so you have to plan ahead.
This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit.

So after all my whining in Monday’s post , I decided I needed to suck it up and find a way to enjoy what’s left of my summer. When we bought our house last winter, one of our very, very favorite things about it is that it has a big, long, shaded porch that goes all the way across the front of the house.
Since I began working from home, I have no doubt I have saved a ton of money by not buying those yogurt-granola cups and salad bar lunches everyday. What I haven’t saved even a penny on, however, is my iced coffee habit. If anything, it’s gotten worse.
Bubble tea is a relatively new phenomenon, originating in Taiwan in the 1980s. In fact, it only caught on because they were featured on a popular Japanese television show. From Taiwan, bubble tea traveled to east Asia and then to Canada before taking hold in the United States. Bubble tea comes in two different varieties: fruit flavored teas and milk based teas. But if you are lucky, you'll find a place that combines them to give you a fruity milk tea (my favorite). The base is traditionally a black or green tea, depending on which fruits are present.
Pears have always been one of my favorite fruits. Not only do they have an elegant shape, but they are juicy and charmingly sweet. Though, pears have a dark side. They can be temperamental, finicky, and are never perfectly ripe.
