Okay, let’s get one thing out of the way before we dive into this delightful stew of holiday fun, shall we? I am done apologizing for not being a good blogger anymore. And by good I mean consistent, obviously. I’ve come to terms with the fact, that, much like my children, the blog has grown […]

♫ Have yourself a merry little Cosmo… ♫ It’s that time of year, my friends. Time to deck our halls, spread good cheers, and be filled with the Christmas spirits. Which means it’s also the time of year where I raid my liquor cabinet and wreck wrack my brain to bring you a few new cocktails […]

Welcome back! It’s great to see you again! Oh, wait. I wasn’t talking to you, although as always it is great to see you. I was talking to the Friday Favorites, which if you’ve been paying attention know have been MIA for the past month. Or two. (You also know that it isn’t unusual for […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and I love it. That’s right. I’m one of those freaky, enthusiastic people who loves Christmas and who gets judged and ridiculed for it by visibly showing my excitement (and endorsing retailers for doing the same) anytime before the day my belly is stuffed full of tryptophan and regret.

I love trick-or-treaters. When my kids were little, I was always happy to forego freezing my fanny off on t-o-t duty, choosing instead to stay home and pass out the candy and ooh and ahh at all the creative costumes.

I hate resolutions. And […]

It’s a bold statement, I know, but I’ll stand behind it until my last breath. Which will probably be due to overstuffing my face with this toffee. The best part, besides the fact that it’s the world’s best toffee, is that it’s so ridiculously easy. Not easy like that Sigma Nu hoped I was in 1987 […]

♫ It’s that time of year … when the world falls in love … every song you hear seems to say … have a martini. ♫ OK, fine, it doesn’t, but it should.  Because there’s nothing that puts the jolly in your holly (just go with it) and takes the occasional grinchies away quite like a […]

You know how over the past six months or so I’ve started every FF post with an apology for being lazy skipping a few weeks? Not today, my friends. Sure, I didn’t post last week, but instead of an apology I’m going to say this: You are welcome.Because after you get through this list I’m […]

I’m about to admit something that is personally disappointing and more than a little bit shocking to have to come to terms with, but is an honest confession. I don’t care for chocotinis as much as I used to? I haven’t read an US Weekly in over a month? Both true. Both disappointing and shocking, […]
