When the weather cools down, I need a comforting drink to warm me from within. You’re looking at one of my favorite seasonal cocktails. It’s easy to make and uses minimal ingredients but is so complex and rich in flavor! Oh, and it takes only a few minutes to make. Also, if alcohol isn’t your vibe just skip the whiskey and add some seltzer!

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about.

    It’s really sad the way those stars are because you accidentally touch it and it made me give you a three star rating which I would never do and there’s no way to undo it
