Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina

Is it that time of the week again? The best part of the week. The pre-game into the weekend. Oh yea it’s “Thirsty Thursday” as you know it! Let’s kick it off with a “Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina!” What’s that you ask? Well, the “Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina” is a twist on a classic Bellini. I LOVE bellinis and the BEST I’ve ever had was at Cipriani in NY!  It was pure perfection with peach puree and simple syrup. My rendition is with a twist on a classic and contains peach schnapps & rose water! The peach schnapps gives the“Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina” a nice hint of peach flavor and the rose water makes it perfection. What is rose water you ask? It’s just what you think, water infused with roses. The smell and flavor is intoxicating. You can find it at specialty or European marts and sometimes a liquor store. A little goes a long way here because its super potent in flavor but the combination taste of elegance.

Ok, from my picture you can see I was a bit indulgent on Thursday! Ha, we all deserve to be from time to time! So, here in Newport Beach, CA there is a place called Cinderella Cakes and they are the WINNERS of TLC’s “The Ultimate Cake Off”, “My Fair Wedding,” & “OC Housewives.” I guess you can imagine that at some point this foodie with a sweet tooth was going to indulge and take the opportunity to try this well ranked establishment. Curious about the outcome? Ok, ok, ok ….. they were DEEEEEE-LICUOUS and I can’t add enough e’s in delicious. I mean a girl gets to drink champagne while eating a top rated cupcake all on a Thursday evening? Really? Who do I think I am? Shouldn’t this be illegal? JK! Us ladies need to learn to live & indulge from time to time and the combination was a spoiling moment that I wish I could of shared with my girlfriends. Any-whoozer ladies don’t forget to give this cocktail a test run, ok? You can’t go wrong here. Just play with the measurements to create your little taste of Heaven and invite over your girlfriends to splurge on a night of Champagne & Cupcakes…..just saying! icon smile Pretty Bitch RosaLina

Healthy Turkey Tacos

It’s “TACO TUESDAY” and it’s “HEALTHY TURKEY TACOS” on the menu tonight! I took it back to the basics  and substituted ground turkey for beef and blue corn crunchy shells instead of tortillas. What we did was cut out a little fat and carb-olas tonight making it a “Healthy Turkey Tacos!” I’ve never met a taco that I didn’t like or devour and these “Healthy Turkey Tacos” aim to please. See you here every Tuesday for a new “TACO” recipe @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com

Healthy Turkey Tacos

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say growing up we at tacos probably once a week. My mom would by an Old El Paso taco kit, ground beef, taco dressings and that was taco night. It was an inexpensive way to feed a family of four and create a meal in under 20 minutes.  You could purchase everything you needed for around $10 and everyone had a full belly. I’ve ventured out with tacos since growing up in Georgia and I dare to say I haven’t eaten Old El Paso taco kits since Georgia. My taste buds have grown a bit since then and so has my love for tacos. icon smile Healthy Turkey Tacos
