Unicorns, Rainbows and the BEST Bean Salad Ever!

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen22 Comments

This last week there was a lot of chatter about a certain unicorn drink that hit the public in a BIG way. It was pretty freaking brilliant marketing, so kudos to Starbucks and all, but as far as taste goes, it was “drink your own bathwater” bad.

My newer readers might not know that I am Latina. It’s funny, but I married about as non-Hispanic a boy as they come. He is blonde haired and blue eyed. With an ancestry that hails from Denmark, but I knew he was the one when my brothers passed him a bottle of Tabasco hot sauce at the first family dinner …

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen36 Comments

A few years ago my husband Jen’s Guy decided to re-connect with some of his “Danish-ness” by whipping up a batch of Aebleskivers. Our family has long been a fan of these morsels of deliciousness and up until that point, we had to endure long waits in between cultural street fairs to enjoy them. You are totally loving the bunny …
