Now it's more than just a flower on your husband's tropical shirt.


Just when you thought wine couldn't get any better.

*can also be used in prosecco or champagne- we just prefer chardonnay


Ice cream in a martini glass.


We dig the way the hibiscus syrup looks through the glass.


The hibiscus flower is an edible accoutrement that is the perfect accent for Spring entertaining, just like we did with this ho-hum cheesecake...not so ho-hum anymore!


We picked this little gem up at Pyramids in Hilton Head, SC. It has a subtle sweet, tart taste. Both the flower and the syrup are completely edible.

Helpful hint: use tweezers to remove the flower from the jar and to arrange it however you like. You can even take it to the next level like my mom did- note the flower in a flower on the cheesecake.

If you would like to try the Wild Hibiscus you can check out Pyramids they will ship it right to you!

In an attempt to maintain (or more honestly, establish) a healthy lifestyle, I have found that lunch is where I tend to fall apart. Perhaps handful of grapes (truth: pretzels), or maybe a ready-made protein shake (truth: Starbucks Vanilla Latte), or possibly a yogurt with a sprinkling of granola (truth: trail mix with a spoonful of Ben & Jerry's) leave me guilt-ridden and hungry a short time later. The truth is, we all want to be healthy, but we need a little help. This morning I got up a little earlier than usual and pulled out some of our finds from the Farmer's Market this past...


Could these unassuming avocados possibly bring forth the deliciousness of chocolate pudding? Why yes they could...There are many recipes out there for avocado pudding, but this has proven to be my favorite. It's so simple and quick.


As mentioned earlier this week on Today, freshly made bread is one of the simple things that make people feel great. No carbs?? No Gluten?? It's okay- the smell of it baking is just as rewarding. Donate the bread and you make someone else's day, too!

Simple things make us happiest
