It’s apple season!!! Yayyyy! McIntosh and Granny Smith and Honeycrisps, oh my!

Have you ever stared into your pantry blankly? I don’t mean that zombie stare you get when you’re starving, but are too lazy to make anything.

I mean the one where you want to have something different and interesting, and your brain is trying to pair the half-empty bag of chocolate chips with that forgotten jar of roasted red peppers and the last package of strawberry Pop-Tarts that no one touched because some jerk squeezed the pouch until the tarts broke to bits.


This Orange Pina Colada Spritzer is a little bit like that. Borne from a craving for something I’d never heard of but desperately wanted when the name popped into my head. [Read more…]
