Mojito Monday

We celebrated National Mojito Day when it rolled around on July 11th, but if your Monday was anything like mine, you’d agree that an encore celebration wouldn’t do us wrong. So, if you still have leftover rum from last Wednesday,… Continue Reading →

Farm Burger Birmingham’s No. 2: The Vegan Burger

With its cow logo and emphasis on grass fed beef, I didn’t expect relatively-new-to-Downtown-Birmingham’s Farm Burger to have any vegetarian options, let alone a delish vegan burger. In fact, I wouldn’t have even investigated had a vegetarian colleague not suggest… Continue Reading →

Day 19: Boba Tea!

There’s some contention about who exactly came up with boba (or bubble) tea, but whoever it was is one of my tea heroes. What we do know is that this delish drink originated and became popular in Taiwan in the… Continue Reading →

Day 18: Digestive Biscuits

Day 17: Mint Infusions

I just have a little quickie for you today as a continuation of yesterday’s floral medicinal tisanes (please see that post for the standard health disclaimers–those apply here, too).
