Sophisticated Shirley Temple

Raise your hand if you LOVED Shirley Temples as a kid!! We were both obsessed! It was always our favorite “special occasion” drink. When creating our Valentines/ Galentines signature cocktail this year, we thought it would be so fun to make something that reminded us of the good ‘ol days, you know, the ones when we were carefree and could socialize in person! We went through the list of our much loved Eau Claire Craft…

LOVE- LY Instant Pot Beef Ragu and Pappardelle

For the last several months we’ve been celebrating occasions with friends and family via zoom, and while, not ideal- it can still be a lot of fun! We’ve even had multiple dinner parties where each person (or couple) comes up with a recipe and ‘teaches’ the others how to make it! We get that not everyone LOVES Valentines Day, but think of it as an opportunity to show those you love how much they mean…

Tuscan Chicken +Gnocchi Stew

Every January, we get in a food “RUT”. Maybe it’s all the excess of the Holidays, the exhaustion of getting back into (somewhat) of a routine, or maybe it’s just the January “blahs”, but I ALWAYS find myself just lacking motivation to cook healthy + delicious meals. I’ve been so freaking uninspired lately, but I find, If I just take a few hours on a Sunday to start experimenting AMAZING things can happen! Aka –…

Spicy Christmas Mule

The Moscow Mule may just be one of my favorite cocktails of all time. I have a slight obsession with ginger and citrus, so when I was thinking about what I’d want to be enjoying during all of our Zoom Christmas Parties with Friends, I naturally though- a Mule! But then I remembered I had a brand spanking new bottle of Park Distillery’s Bird’s Eye Chili Vodka and KNEW I had to incorporate that somehow..…

Local Charcuterie

Have you been to Freson Bros. before? From the moment you walk in, until the second you leave, you can’t help but enjoy the experience! The aisles are spotless, the produce impeccable, the selection impressive and the staff always helpful and smiling (okay, smizing… its 2020!). The whole Freson shopping experience is wonderful, start to finish! It’s hard to say what we love most about this store. As passionate Albertans, it’s amazing to see a…

Gin + Gingerbread

So… the Holiday Season is not what we are used to. In all honesty, we’re not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing! We do love us a glammed up holiday fete (any excuse to dress up these days.. right??) but, we definitely do enjoy an excuse to saddle up on the couch with a solid cocktail (mocktail if you are MacKenzie) and a Hallmark Movie. Richelle’s cocktail of choice this…

Eating Snickerdoodles for Two

Mackenzie here. Surprise! Baby Giese number two, scheduled for arrival in March 2021! After finally getting over morning (read: all day sickness!) and gaining my appetite back, I’m starting to feel like a normal (read: exhausted full time nurse, full time toddler mom) again! This means getting back to “usual” (Aka COVID edition) routines, and doing activities I love, like decorating -[early] for Christmas and holiday baking with my boy! I’m a stickler for tradition,…

Creating in the Kitchen!

The kitchen has long been my happy place! The silver lining of spending more time at home this past year has been having more time to experiment and create in the kitchen. For me, eating well is such an important part of overall health. Cooking at home has many benefits – it’s relaxing, it’s a creative outlet and you can control exactly what goes into your meals. Often, when we eat out, we are unaware…
