Every recipe is touched with alcohol; the result is a punchy visual adventure with roots in Italian and French cuisine that demands enjoying meals with passion, with friends, and with alcohol.

    Thanks for hosting my dear. I’m bringing a boatload of veggies to the party because I like them, and they taste fantastic. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    That Meghan, always sticking to stories. But if you get a bit of Kombucha Peach Beer in her . . . I’m just sayin’

    I’ve got a couple of beet recipes, in honor of my newly refurbished, search by the vegetable, Visual Recipe Index. And the fact that our farmers are really really really good at growing beets. Why couldn’t they be really really really good at growing Kombucha Peach Beer??

    Where was I?–pizza, chili, whatever you like. And then, top it off with a pumpkin muffin–that has actual pumpkin in it!–frosted with some pumpkin spice cream cheese.

    Thanks, Kristy!

      HA – her stories are the best 😉

      Also, I am LOVING your visual recipe index Kirsten! It’s so helpful and useful and awesome. And so are beets. And kombucha peach beer. And pretty much everything else you bring.
