Holiday Sip and Savour: Cherry Coconut Mint Soda

Holiday Sip and Savour: Cherry Coconut Mint Soda

I have a freezer full of cherries. I couldn’t be more ecstatic. I love feasting on fresh cherries in their simplest form – eating them clean and spitting out their pits. Cherry season though — is long gone. Instead, I use my freezer supply to fill my fresh cherry void. I get creative. In fact, my mind works like an overactive pendulum, thinking of ways to reinvent the ubiquitous cherry.

Lately, it seems wherever I have been spending time, (Vancouver in particular) there is a sudden influx of Neapolitan-inspired pop-up pizzerias. They all have the same format, small spaces that happen to do their pizza wizardry from the back of a dimly lit pizza kitchen. While I love me some pizza (that is a whole different post), it’s really my fascination with Italian Soda at these pizzerias that prompted this post.

Jessie’s Incredible Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cinnamon Icing

There is something sacramental about eating cake, especially chocolate cake in good company.

Growing up, my sisters and I were on a mission to do just that, but never thought to bake a cake from scratch. It never crossed our minds. We only baked Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines premixed cakes. Chocolate and even German Chocolate were on heavy rotation, along with white, confetti, lemon, orange, and even banana. Alas, there was always wishful thinking, hope even, that the cake would look just like the picture on the box.
