Now that it is practically summer here in Greece, everywhere you look there are frappes. Whether you are passing by a coffee shop, there you will find many Greeks enjoying the sun and their frappes; whether shopping in a store or two, you are sure to find the workers sipping their frappes; or relaxing on the beach and savoring each sip.

When traveling, I frequently buy a few bottles of the local wines and/or spirits, seduced by their unavailability in Chicago. Especially when the dollar was stronger, vinous ballast would accumulate in my suitcases until the handles buckled and the seams began to unravel.

tâ€™s not really a recipe, more of an idea. But at least itâ€™s a really yummy one. And now that we finally have watermelons back at the store I was very excited to make this again since I havenâ€™t made it since last summer. Itâ€™s so refreshing. Save this recipe for a hot summery day

Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with Swiss Miss. I grew up on the stuff. I have two boxes stashed in my desk at work. But let me show you something.

This type of mint leaves have very strong smell. You'll either love it or hate it. Of course, I like it a lot. It's very refreshing.

I thought Iâ€™d start with a simple smoothie recipe to get yaâ€™ll in the mood for pollen, but there are many ways of incorporating these amazing golden granules into your daily diet. Sprinkle it on your morning cereal or lunch-time salad, top your desserts, add to salad dressing, or fold it into your raw food snacks (like The Raw Brownie perhaps?).

My very first date with my husband we decided to go out for floats. But when we got to the restaurant they told us they didnâ€™t serve floats.

I have to confess something. When I first heard that the next round of â€œLetâ€™s Lunchâ€, was a liquid lunch, I instantly thought â€œMARTINIâ€

Even though wine is my first love, a good craft beer is also high on my list. Any time I am working near Burbank I always make time to swing into Tonyâ€™s Darts Away for some amazing food and a nice cold brew.

If you are looking at German wines in your average wine shop, Germany can seem like a monoculture: there is Riesling as far as the eye can see and little else.

Itâ€™s a margarita, itâ€™s a beerâ€¦itâ€™s both! Thatâ€™s right, this satisfying Cinco de Mayo cocktail is a margarita laced with beer. If you like a slice of lime with your Corona or Pacifico, then you will love this drink!

If you plan on watching the Derby this weekend, do yourself a favor; put on your straw boater or big feathery hat, pick the horse with the silliest name to root for and mix up this delicious little Southern sipper.

I prepared a sweet rum-based cocktail that screams Summer from top to bottom. So put on your sandals and come cheer me with this fresh drink in a stress-free atmosphere open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I can safely say that tamarind pods are among the strangest ingredient weâ€™ve ever worked with. Beneath their egg-like shell is a sticky pulp that covers a handful of hard seeds.

Iâ€™m sharing a shoot that I put together with some of my friends that has a splendid pink lemonade recipe I worked on while trying to find a balance of ingredients that not only tasted great but had the perfect shade of pink.

For the past few weeks I've been working on a special cocktail recipe! Last month I was invited to participate in Kitchen Play's Progressive Party for May! In case you haven't been to one of the parties, it's a unique concept that brings together cooks, bloggers and foodies.

Opera rehearsals have been taking their toll lately, and I feel like Iâ€™ve barely seen Joel at all these past 3 weeks. However, I was lucky enough to have a couple of my rehearsals cancelled this weekend, so Joel and I made plans for a little celebration at home.

People kept asking for the recipe and I was embarrassed to tell them it actually wasn't from scratch and only had 2 ingredients. Work smart not hard, right?

As the warmer weather arrives, all the red wine and hot punch from the winter months becomes less desirable. The thought of warming my hands over a mug of mulled cider, as I so often did this winter, no longer seems appealing; with spring, thoughts of fresh herbs, flower blossoms, fizzes and flips take center stage!
