So wrong or so right?

by Crystal Cook

I am not entirely sure if it’s the umbrella or these fabulous (and I do mean fabulous!) ceramic tiki tumblers, but with one sip, you’re instantly transported to a tropical paradise. (Ok, who are we kidding? It’s totally the Mai Tai’s that do the transporting!) But seriously folks, what do you think? Do my vintage tiki tumblers make you want to break out your ukulele and burst into song?  Or do you just think that these tiki’s may just have the Brady Bunch curse?

P.S. Regardless of what you think of my tumblers, you should try a refreshing Mai Tai this weekend – recipe below!

  • 4 parts dark rum (2 oz.)
  • 4 parts light rum (2 oz.)
  • 2 parts Curacao (1 oz.)
  • 2 parts fresh lime juice (1 oz.)
  • Grenadine (1 tbsp.)
  • Orgeat (almond) syrup  (1 tbsp.)
  • Pineapple spear
  • Umbrella and awesome tiki tumblers optional.

Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker and shake like there’s no tomorrow. Strain into a chilled tumbler or glass highball over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple, umbrellas, orchids, etc… Have fun!

Fun with Jingles!

by Casserole Queens

Ready to have some fun with jingles? We are!

The other day our dear friend Laura Graf sent us a note saying she was feeling creative (and possibly a little bored!) and wanted to write us a jingle. She came up with three very unique ideas, but we need your help in deciding which one to choose. We will be collecting votes all this week and next, and will close the polls on July 8th. The winning jingle will get placed on our website, and who knows – maybe we will even make a video!

To learn more about our little songstress, check out Laura at

Jingle #1 (Performed to the tune of “Love for Sale”)

Jingle #2  (Performed to the tune of “Put Your Head on my Shoulder” )

Jingle #3 (Performed to the tune of “I Love Rock-n-Roll”)

So Wrong or So Right?

by Crystal Cook

Do these mushroom candlesticks add the perfect amount of whimsical decor, or do they just remind you of a bad trip? (We’re not talking about the 2nd grade trip you took to the museum.) You decide—so wrong or so right?
