I actually called Nana tonight and asked for her to walk me step-by-step through this recipe so I could feed my craving.

Thankfully, I had the ingredients on hand during our “shop the […]

Non-Alcoholic Apricot Spritzer

My kids love drinking carbonated drinks. Yes, I know they are bad for me. “Cokes” as we call them here in Texas are a rare treat with a good meal. This one is one of my favorite mixed carbonated drinks because I love the taste of apricots, peaches and nectarines. This would make a good […]
