    The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison

    We are thrilled to be part of The Book Club Cookbook’s Blog Party for The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison! Every time we read a book, we are always geared into what food or drink the characters are enjoying! One dessert that stood out in The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison is a Peach Melba. Now, I’ve never heard of a Peach Melba, but my mother says she used to eat them all the time! Well, we did a little digging into the history of a Peach Melba. According to Wikipedia, Peach Melba was created by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London, to honor the Australian soprano,…

    Irish Blackberry Lemonade

    Irish Blackberry Lemonade (with a Texas Twist) February blahs are a thing of the past, can we all say AMEN! And we can only hope and pray Spring weather will be not far behind. Let’s put the gloomy days of winter behind us, shall we? Just around the bend are holidays like Spring Break (Get. Here. Faster.), March Madness (that is LIKE a holiday in SOME places, right?) and, of course, St. Patrick’s Day! It doesn’t snow much where I live (it’s Texas, ya’ll) but the sky can get pretty gray and gloomy. And it seems like the gray gloom of winter has been here FOREVER. It IS great reading…

    Homemade Gingerbread Latte Sarah and I are known gingerbread fanatics – we will make gingerbread anything given the chance.  Whether it be cupcakes, Gingerbread Cider Bundt Cakes or Gingerbread Waffles, if it can be done with gingerbread, we are going for it.  That is why I felt Sarah’s pain when she kept telling me how bad her Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks were. Each one she bought was not turning out right. Then I thought, we can make a Homemade Gingerbread Latte!  How hard can it be?  Not hard at all, and there are a million recipes out there.  I think this Homemade Gingerbread Latte may even be better than what…
