Tropical Lifestyle

Tropical Life

Who doesn’t want a tropical lifestyle! Sunshine inspiration, palm trees swaying high in the sky, 4:00 rain showers every afternoon for about 20-minutes and then the ground becomes steamy, as do your desires. 

Desires for something cold, not humid, crisp and refreshing. Who wouldn’t want a Tropical Sangria on a hot humid day!

Tropical Fruit

Ohhhhh could I tell you stories about tropical fruits. Fruits I did not grow up with. Fruits so large, that if you were walking under that particular tree at that particular moment and the fruit fell on your head… well, let’s just say, your head would be dripping in a sweetness, only nature could kiss you with!

Jaca – Jacke fruit in Brazil

While living in Brazil, I came across tropical fruits I’ve never seen in my life. Now that I have seen them and tasted them, I want them infused into my summertime life back here in Maryland!

Goiaba in Brazil – Guava

Tropical fruits, mango, papaya, coconut, jackfruit, acai and so many more, are so loaded with health properties, why not make them a part of our lives here in the non-tropical part of the world?

Sangria

Not all sangria is tropical. In fact, the first sangria I ever had was from Spain. A little restaurant in Baltimore Maryland called El Bodegon, a Spanish Tapas restaurant no longer in business. 

The sangria was red, red wine with apples, oranges and other liquor, probably a splash of Triple Sec and I loved it. Then I moved to Brazil and had a sangria there… I didn’t walk the next day! 

Brazilian sangria was made with Cachaca and wine, lots of fruit and ice. Oh My. Cachaca, a sip made from sugarcane, like rum, is nearly 54% alcohol, while wine is about 12%. Good grief, get me back to Baltimore!

My Muffin Madness

 

In my family, I’ve always been known as the ‘Muffin Queen’. Out of necessity, I created muffins for breakfast, lunch, on the go snacks, sometimes dinner and a sweet yet healthyish treat for dessert!
