I am going to admit – I am kind of geeked up for the Olympics this year. I’m not sure why – maybe it’s all the reports of the craziness coming from Sochi. Here are three fabulous Olympic Inspired cocktails that are perfect for watching the games, or just to warm up on a cold winter day! They’re great for after a day on the slopes or just playing in the yard in the snow. Remember, 21 & over only, please.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Smucker’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
We are huge peanut butter fans at our house. We eat it on toast in the morning, sandwiches for meals, and have even made some pretty great desserts with peanut butter. As a vegetarian, peanut butter is a great source of protein.
Smucker’s, Laura Scudder’s, and Adams natural peanut butters have teamed up for a great cause – supporting the National Parks! They’ve donated $100,000 to the National Parks Conservation Association’s (NPCA) America’s Great Waters Program. To sweeten the pot, the brands have put out $0.25 off peelie coupons on their products. For each of these coupons that are redeemed, they’ll donate an additional $1 to the NPCA, up to $50,000. Pretty great, right?

I don’t know about your family, but if they’re anything like mine, we have all kinds of recipes that are “super secret.” In our family’s case, you’re only allowed to know about the recipe if you are deemed worthy. Since I’m sort of a black sheep, I don’t think I’m ever going to get to know any of the recipes!
That’s where Tastebook comes in!
California Delicious provided a Gift Basket for editorial purposes. Opinions are our own.
One of my favorite parts of the holidays has always been getting gift baskets. I’m not sure what it is about a gift basket, but it always feels extra special. I think it’s the themed assortment of products and all the tasty gourmet treats that are included. I spent many an hour during the holidays, sitting in my mom’s office, gorging myself on the treats from gift baskets.

Here in my little area of the Midwest, we’ve been digging out from under nearly 18 inches of snow. While that’s a lot of snow for any area, it’s more than we normally get in a year! As if that wasn’t enough, the temperatures outside didn’t even get above freezing for almost a week! Here we are two weeks later, and the snow has just now melted from the parking area by my house.
One of the saving graces during this ridiculously cold snap was a warm beverage. On a normal day, a cup of coffee is necessary to get going. But when it’s 12 degrees outside? Yeah, I’m gonna need copious amounts of hot coffee and hot cocoa.
