A nice bartender in San Diego taught me this trick. I was aboard the U.S.S. Midway for a work-related event and I had asked for a ginger ale at the bar. (Afterall, booze and work functions don’t mix.) She said she didn’t have any, but she could fudge one really well. Boy, did she!!! She used Sierra Mist (that stuff is EVERYWHERE in California!) and Pepsi, but any lemon-lime and cola combo will work.
During the week I drink office coffee, which as we all know can be slightly lacking. So over the weekend, I really like to spruce things up. This recreation of the latte that I had at Chicago’s “The Bourgeois Pig” cafe is so simple to make that it doesn’t really count as a recipe, but I never would have thought to use the allspice/honey combo, and I must pass on the love.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
