Super Spirulina Smoothie

Spirulina is a blue-green algae (though that is a misnomer for cyanobacteria — a photosynthesizing bacteria) that can be found in healthy places like the ocean and Whole Foods. In dry, powdered form, it’s a deep, rich forest green and reminds me of a high-quality dry tempera paint. Once blended into a green smoothie, it […]

I’ve always loved the concept of pink lemonade, though I don’t love the concept of artificially colored food and drink (except when it comes to Skittles and Starburst and Jelly Belly — then I am powerless over their bright and joyful colors!).

Applejack – Fall Cocktail Recipe

Last time we were in LA, I had the extreme pleasure of visiting with the very talented and charming Caroline Mili Artiss and shooting some videos with her! We made a couple of fall cocktails; mine, a warming apple brandy sipper and hers, the classic English mulled wine. This cocktail combines one of my favorite […]

Flaming Dr. Pepper

Flaming Dr. Pepper

Episode 6 of 2 Shots 1 Take! Flaming Dr. Pepper with Todd Bieber, writer and director from UCBComedy! Before you go on a Flaming Dr. Pepper tirade, I know we did not do this drink justice. I know because someone told me on YouTube and while most things people tell you on YouTube are to […]
