Candy Cane Silk Steamers

Holiday Candy Cane Silk Steamer made with Silk Cashewmilk from foodiewithfamily.com #SilkCashew

I am straight up, solid obsessed with nut milks. The nut milk obsession comes from a weird place. I don’t drink cow’s milk. I cook with it, my kids love it, I just plain can’t drink it. It makes me ill. I love creamy things, though, and so the wide availability of alternatives to dairy…

Homemade Classic Eggnog

Homemade Classic Eggnog from foodiewithfamily.com

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without eggnog. And eggnog just isn’t eggnog unless it’s Homemade Classic Eggnog.  It’s just truth, friends. It ABSOLUTELY takes more time than buying a quart of the stuff at the store, but the payoff is so enormous that you’ll never question it when once you’ve made your own. Redolent with freshly…

Ginger Stomach Soother

Relief is on the way! Ginger Stomach Soother from foodiewithfamily.com

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have every intention of overeating on Thursday. I plan on eating so much that my stomach will need a little comforting after the fact. Is it wrong? Perhaps. Will that stop me? Not for love nor money. I have a little trick up my sleeve,…

Holiday Drinks {apple cider + burnt orange cocktail}

Holiday-Drinks-Apple-Cider-Burnt-Orange-Cocktail-fi

I enjoyed my entire Carnival Cruise, but one of the most memorable moments on the ship was when we got to take a Mixology class at The Alchemy Bar on board. Our intrepid teacher, Iona, led us through several of her signature artisan cocktails. At the risk of sounding like a pyro, my favourite part…

Coffee Jelly

Coffee Jelly {the ultimate hostess gift} on Simple French Toast from foodiewithfamily.com

My husband lives, breathes, sleeps, drinks, and eats coffee. I mean REALLY.  We tea drinkers often get a reputation as being high maintenance, but my husband takes the cake with his coffee rules. The guy opts to drive rather than fly on all business trips under 12 hours so he can take HIS coffee and…

Dulce de Leche Chai Latte {Caramel Chai Latte}

Dulce de Leche Chai Lattes {caramel chai lattes} from foodiewithfamily.com

It took a terrible show of willpower for me not to move this up in the queue to share with you sooner. The only thing that kept me from plunking a Dulce de Leche Chai Latte in the middle of #TurkeyWeek and wrecking the theme was the fact that I know there are people out there…

Fire Cider: Health Tonic and Homeopathic Remedy

Fire Cider: Delicious Health Tonic and Homeopathic Remedy (and cooking ingredient, to boot!) foodiewithfamily.com

To anyone visiting for the purpose of discussing my use or perceived misuse of the word “homeopathic”: I am using a casual definition of the word supported by google, WebMD, and Merriam Webster: “That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same…

Peppermint Patty Milkshakes

Cool, chocolatey, Peppermint Patty Milkshake from foodiewithfamily.com

Here’s the deal. I’m turning 40 this week. I don’t see this as a thing to hide. I think every single day I’m alive is empirical evidence that I’m okay at this being alive thing and is a reason to brag. I’m here! And to celebrate this week, I’m posting some of my favourite foods…

Mojito Icee {High Octane AND Mocktail Versions}

Mojito Icees {High Octane and Mocktail Versions} from foodiewithfamily.com

“Sheesh, it’s hot.” That Warner Bros. line gets so much play around here this time of year. Instead of melting into a puddle like the Abominable Snowman, how about whipping up these Mojito Icees in either the adult-high octane form (with rum) or the Mocktail (alcohol-free) version? This recipe, another brainchild of my husband, The…
