Cookie lovers, take note.
Pickle lovers can now buy a gallon size jar of pickle juice. That’s right — a gallon of pure pickle juice. Amazon is known for selling some interesting food items, such as smoked rattlesnake and giant bags of cereal marshmallows, and this product from Texas is right up there with them.
Chips and dip are as essential to holiday parties as extra ice and a delicious house cocktail. And because many dips can be made in as few as 10 minutes, making them from scratch is a low-investment way to take a gathering from great to unforgettable.
We are right in the middle of the holiday season, and with so many delicious treats, it’s hard to choose which ones to serve at your holiday party. Chocolate peppermint cookies and gingerbread men are yummy options, but if you want to step outside of the box, a 3D cookie tree is the perfect option. And it’s not too hard to create.
I don't know about you, but I barely bat an eye when I'm sitting at a bar and order a cocktail full of unrecognizable spirits. I watch the bartender measure and shake countless elixirs together to make a magical concoction that I swear I'll try to re-create at home. But then, I get home and reality hits — there's no way I want to buy, much less measure out eight or 10 different ingredients to make a drink. The good news is that you can make excellent cocktails at home without shelling out for a bar cart's worth of liquor.
