Iced hibiscus tea flavored with real cherry and scented with mint. It's delicious, fresh and it happens to be naturally vegan, and gluten free.
This dessert is amazing. It doesn’t take a ton of actual work, but you do have to start making it about 24 hours before you want to serve it. And it is soooo worth it. Imagine cherry pie filling floating on a magical cloud of meringue, whipped cream and marshmallows. If you love sugar (and [...]
Because it’s cherry blossom time in DC, because I had been wanting to try this for a while, because I opened a jar of cherry pie filling for Belgian waffles on Sunday and because cherry pie is amazing… I made mini pies the other day. I did it the easy way — using refrigerated pie [...]
The Cherry Blossom Festival ended Sunday, and tiny pink petals are floating all over DC — but some of the trees are still blooming. Toby and I went down to the tidal basin two weekends ago and it was beautiful. Naturally, I was inspired to bake cookies. I thought about something with cherries, but instead [...]
Anyone who has ever met me — and probably many who haven’t — know that I was not a fan of Jacksonville, N.C. One of the main problems I had with J-actionville was the lack of decent grocery stores. I once drove to four different stores to get enough cherries to bake Toby a cherry [...]
As you may know, it is virtually impossible to find fresh sour cherries in the grocery store. But Toby’s favorite pie — and annual birthday request — is cherry pie. So I usually bake pies with sweet cherries. When I can find them. This year, I got a present for my birthday (10 days before [...]
The weather has been really weird. One day it feels like February, the next like June. It’s foggy in the morning and sweltering in the afternoon. The cherry blossoms bloomed early, and now it’s raining pink petals all over the DC area. So, basically, it’s spring. And that means… time for Peeps! You probably recall [...]
Since this is our last spring in DC (at least for a while), we knew we had to go see the cherry blossom trees when they were in bloom. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. The peak blooming time is very hard to predict, the trees really only bloom for a week or two, and [...]
I have a confession: I prefer pie to cake. I know, I know. Cakes are prettier, and they usually feed more people, and they are definitely a much better vehicle for rainbow sprinkles. And ice cream cake is obviously amazing. But there’s just something about a piece of key lime pie, or cherry pie with vanilla [...]
I’ve always been Team Coke. Even though I didn’t grow up in the South, I have always referred to fizzy soft drinks as Coke — not “pop” or “soda.” And I really dislike the taste of Pepsi. What is really annoying, though, is when people try to tell me I can’t tell the difference between [...]
I’m not sure how other people come up with the themes for their children’s first birthday parties, but I was inspired by a stuffed animal. A Hello Kitty doll in a cherry blossom kimono, to be exact. Since Arabella was born during the mainland cherry blossom season and this may be her only birthday (other [...]

To be honest, I haven’t always loved IPA’s. It took me a while, although not as long as resolving my mint aversion, and now I can pretty firmly place myself in that Hop Heads category I used to shy away from. I discover that a dry hopped IPA gives me the delicate flavors…
