A beloved celebration is almost here! Cinco de drinko… I mean Mayo.  At Annie’s wedding a couple of weeks ago, we had the most refreshing prickly pear margaritas.

Salted Baileys Chocolate Truffles

Here’s a fun dessert option for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities this week–salted Baileys chocolate truffles! In a nutshell, I took my favorite vegan cashew truffle recipe and de-raw-ified it by using Baileys instead of almond milk. It was a wise decision, indeed. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays,…
