 Just a few ingredients make up this recipe, the only key is to use nice quality chocolate. As a festive decoration, I tried my hand at homemade marshmallows…and they are fantastic!

Wine Cocktails with Edible SLO Magazine //

Summer may be over but the heat won’t leave the Central Coast. I had a lot of fun shooting these wine cocktails for the current issue of Edible SLO Magazine. Wine ice cubes were a great way to use leftover wine (what’s that??) and made these drinks extra special. What a great way to be creative and stay cool during this Indian Summer. Check out the article online or find copies throughout SLO County. Cheers!

Some pretty happy changes are happening to Pretty Eats. We’ve gotten a beautiful new face lift from the talents over at Nubrand Websites and it couldn’t be more exciting! I thought this called for a celebratory CHEERS featuring some of the season’s citrus beauties. Our Citrus Champagne is refreshing, simple, and sparkly!

Rim your glasses with sparkle by simply wetting the edges and dipping in coarse sugar. Allow to dry for a few minutes. Pour in the juice of any citrus fruit you prefer, we’ve used  these jewel-toned blood oranges. Top your cocktail off with a pour of your favorite bubbly and say cheers to all the things that deserve celebrating in your life!
