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 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!

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.

We received a review copy of What Would Brian Boitano Make? All opinions are our own.
Way back when, I was a little obsessed with figure skating. I suppose it was they heyday of the sport, around 1990-1995 or so. One of the famous skaters of that time, Brian Boitano, has segued into a new career. Since 2009, he has been the host of a cooking show called “What Would Brian Boitano Make?”
Due in part to travelling around the world several times over, Boitano has developed a strong appreciation of other cultures. What’s one of the biggest parts of culture? The food, of course. What Would Brian Boitano Make? Includes recipes that are inspired by locales all around the world.
