VALENTINE’S COCKTAIL :: THE PINK LADY

party favor gift back DIY | coco+kelley

In typical coco+kelley fashion, we can’t properly celebrate a “holiday” without a cocktail. Regardless of your relationship status or views on Valentine’s Day, I personally think it’s a great excuse to get together with friends and celebrate love. Not in the sappy, romantic sort of way… but in a fun, ‘I’m thankful you’re in my life – cheers […]

RECIPE :: MUSHROOM HAZELNUT RISOTTO

mushroom risotto recipe coco kelley_1

For me, a perfect winter recipe is one that is rich and warms your bones, but doesn’t make you feel heavy and sluggish. This risotto is it. The combination of a cheesy risotto base topped with pan-seared portobello and chanterelle mushrooms, flat-leaf Italian parsley, and baked hazelnuts is as fresh as it is filling (very). […]

    Yum! Can’t wait to make this. Totally with you on the filling but not dragging you down thing. Just posted a recipe from Bon Appetit’s Food Lover’s Cleanse on my blog. Lots of great stuff in there!

COCKTAIL RECIPE :: ORANGE POMEGRANATE MIMOSAS

Our traditions run deep when it comes to Christmas morning – I’m sure yours do too. We usually start with presents under the tree, coffee, and panettone. Once the major gifts have been unwrapped, however, it’s time for brunch! And there’s no better brunch than a holiday day brunch, because you know it’s going to be boozy! While I […]

    Some of my favorites here and they are photographed so beautifully! I think I might have a French 75 this eve to honor France (though I make mine with gin, maybe that’s another number like French 94 or something?).

    Every year, I say I’m gonna give eggnog another try. And every year, I chicken out (or just forget). So that’s it – this year I’m putting my foot down and finally doing it! It just looks so good in pictures that I’m determined to make myself like it for some reason.

    By the way, I always thought a white Russian was just milk and vodka. Not sure where I “learned” that, but now at least I understand the appeal (because milk and vodka sounds totally digusting!)

      Ew, milk and vodka does sound totally disgusting! The White Russian is delish! Eggnog is a bit much for me, but I’m always sure to at least have a few sips during the holidays! Each of these is worth a try!
