There are so many budding local food companies here in Austin… good people that are making great things with the best of the best ingredients. So when the folks at Moonshine Sweet Tea approached me, I was over the moon (bad pun, sorry), because this is exactly the kind of business I am excited to support… Family owned: check, locally made: check, good typography: check check.
The recipe has been passed down for 4 generations. It’s handmade in small batches using real organic tea leaves. The sweet tea is highly concentrated… mix just a splash of it with water and drink it cold or hot. I also love it mixed with vodka and a squeeze of lemon. (note: there’s no actual moonshine in the tea, it’s just a cute name).
If you live in Austin, head to Whole Foods on Lamar, Dec. 18th & 19th for a free taste.
The giveaway is now closed, thanks for all your comments! Special thanks to Moonshine Sweet Tea for sponsoring this post!
Here’s a gift everyone could probably use – a $75 gift card to Whole Foods!
Go stock up on fancy mushrooms (or whatever you want)… leave a comment below and tell me your favorite way to cook with mushrooms. And if you don’t like mushrooms, well then you’re not eligible (kidding!!).
Black friday… I’m just not into it. Malls freak me out and I’m not into stuff for the sake of stuff. But I do appreciate a few nicely made things. So I thought what better way to celebrate this awful “holiday” than with an all white-themed gift guide. I don’t know if you can tell by looking at this blog, but I kind of like white.
As I was laying out these items on my computer screen, Jack looked over my shoulder and snarkily said “so you’re making your Christmas list there?” Before I could react with a snappy comeback, I looked back at my computer and admitted, yes. Yes, I am…
I would be a happy holiday camper to have each and every item here, (with the exception of #7 which I already bought for myself last week)
Move over dinner rolls, and make way for… corn muffins! Maybe it’s my midwestern background, but I love corn, especially in the form of these sweet & savory muffins.
These naturally sweetened with maple syrup and studded with little flecks of rosemary. They’re vegan, but no one has to know that. Almond milk substitutes perfectly for milk, and a bit of apple cider vinegar helps them rise (without the egg). They’re a bit on the crumbly side, but come to think of it, good cornbread should be golden and crumbly…
