Tropical, Fruit Punch and Mixed Berry Mojitos

Who is ready for spring? Being that winter never really happened here in SoCal, I’m ready. I want spring flowers, longer days and—hey, some mojitos to sip by the pool.

Alright, who am I kidding, I can go for mojitos anytime! Specifically these Tropical, Mixed Berry and Fruit Punch Mojitos—go ahead try to pick your favorite. But before you do, let me start by saying the base of these mojitos all start with Simply Juice Drinks’ newest all-natural, made with simple ingredients flavors that they just launched – Tropical, Fruit Punch, and Mixed Berry. From there I picked up all my favorite fruits to infuse the drink alongside the rum, lime and sugar.

Chocolate Espresso Mousse

Want to know why this is the best tasting mousse ever, besides the chocolate, the bold coffee flavor, the smoothness, the light texture—but not so much that it dissipates before you get the richness of the chocolate? I’ll tell you—the best thing about this mousse is I actually finished it.

Valentine’s is just a few days away, so I thought I would load you up on this last minute, no-bake, easy-to-make matzo bark.

Let me start by reminding you, I promised to keep Valentine’s dessert simple this year, so for this dessert, I bypassed the homemade caramel for melted caramel squares. But if you decide to roll up your sleeves and add 10 minutes to this 20-minute dessert, here’s a great recipe for homemade caramel (with step-by-step photos—shameless self-promotion). From there I layered it with chocolate, pink (dyed) marshmallow fluff, freeze-dried strawberries and shredded coconut.
