Dirty Mary – Bloody Mary Countdown

This week’s Bloody Mary recipe is fairly simple. Simple, yet delicious. My husband ordered a dirty martini a couple of weeks ago and asked for a shot of Bloody Mary mix. He drank down the martini enough to add the Bloody Mary mix, and pretty soon, five other customers in the bar were also drinking […]

What are you giving up for Lent?

It’s not just for Catholics anymore, if it ever was. I have several non-religious friends, and the topic du jour (particularly in Facebook status messages) is what people are giving up for Lent.

Buffalo Marys – Bloody Mary Countdown

My husband Dereck loves Bloody Marys. He claims that he didn’t like them a few years ago, but now they are his favorite cocktail. He isn’t a snob: He will order one in a bar or restaurant. But his favorites are the ones he makes at home. Cooking relaxes Dereck, and so does playing around […]
