Orange Peach Lemonade


I just threw this together, but it turned out to be quite refreshing! A delightful way to start the evening after work, while Danielle cooks us a delicious meal! 

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1/4 oz peach schnapps
  • Equal parts orange juice and lemonade 
  • Top off with Fresca

Get a highball glass and fill halfway with ice. Start adding liquids with the vodka and peach schnapps, then add orange juice, lemonade, and the finish with Fresca. 

Enjoy!

Orange Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies


As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches with the speed of a bullet train, I can’t help but wonder…….where did this year go?? I have a lot to be thankful for! My parents are amazing! My sister is one of my best friends and she is going have her first little bundle of joy any day now! (I am super excited to be an aunt)

And I have to save the best for last…..Levi and I have made it through another year of living together and it’s the longest I’ve ever lived with someone and our friendship has gotten even stronger! I am just so greatful for all the things he does for us and even when I do really stupid shit (like dump a cup full of nails into the dishwasher) he never says anything mean 💖 and he is so encouraging when I’m upset about work. I just cannot wait to see what adventures this upcoming year holds.

Ok…..enough with all the feels!

Warm cookies and a glass of milk are the perfect fall treat. I found a bag of dried orange infused cranberries at Trader Joe’s when I was in Albuquerque a few weeks ago and I had to use them for something super yummy. We actually made 2 different versions of this cookie so stay tuned for Levi’s version.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cup Instant Oats
  • 1 Cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp Orange Zest

In a large bowl or stand mixer beat the butter and both sugars until you have a grainy paste. Add the egg and vanilla, mix in completely. Next mix in the salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the flour and oats and mix well.

Using a mixing spoon gently mix in the white chocolate, cranberries and walnuts. Place the cookie dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Use a cookie scoop to place 1 inch balls of dough on a non-stick cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy!!
