Hot Mojito
 Hi Lovelies.  Tis the season for hot cocktails.  Though I still am craving those summerly refreshing flavors, I need them to be warm and not chilly.

So, today I bring you my hot mojito.
 This makes a small tumbler of this hot refreshing beverage.  Just combine the following ingredients.

-1/2 Lime
-2 teaspoons of sugar
-1 shot of rum
-a cinnamon stick
-a cup of hot water.

*If you want the vitamins from the citrus let the water cool a bit after boiling, and then put the citrus in. 


Yummy Breakfast Smoothie
I have been enjoying a super nutritious and delicious breakfast smoothie the past few weeks.  It is great because I don't like eating a whole lot when I first wake up.  But drinking something is a lot easier.

Ingredients include, strawberries, plain yogurt, almonds, oats, milk and banana.  I try to make about equal parts but sometimes I am in the mood for more banana taste or more strawberry.  I go with my gut.  haha.  Very specific recipe.

Do you know any stellar tasting and nutritious smoothie combos?



"Yogsicles!"= Yogurt Popsicles

We bought a fridge along with our new flat and it has a freezer.  I have been living freezerless for two years and one of the main things I was looking forward to about having a freezer again was making homemade popsicles...

The hardest part about making them is waiting.

 Though it has been mostly chilly in these parts, these Yogsicles do make it feel like summer is around the corner!

Do you make your own popsicles?  What are you favorite flavors?


My most favorite hot drink!
-1 shot of whiskey, (I use Jameson, some use Bourbon)
-1 tsp Honey (or more if you want it on the sweet side)
-1 tbsp Lemon Juice
-1 cup Hot Water

-A teaspoon of honey.   (you may want more if you are a sweet tooth, like my papa)

-Squeeze your half lemon, or use pre-squeezed lemon juice. (fresh is better!)
-Pour lemon juice into mug.

-Fill your mug till about 3-4 cm from rim with hot water.
-Top the mug off with 1 shot of Jameson.
This is such a lovely hot cocktail.  It is splendid to help keep warm during the cold months.   It is also wonderful for sore throats, colds, and coughs.

Keep warm and cozy this fall with a Hot Tottie in hand.

Thanks for reading lovelies!


Thai Kitchen, Recipe-
The husband and I cook this dish at least once a week.  It has the basic thai essentails in it. 

One of my friends Amy asked me to share it.  It really is amazing.  The strange things in it like Oyster sauce can be found at Asian markets, or maybe some wickedly cultural supermarkets...Having all the sauces at hand is really worth it to experiment in our tiny, sometimes thai, kitchen. 

We are headed to Freiburg for a concert this evening.  I am playing my second show in Germany.  Pretty exciting.

Well thank you all for reading.
