Getting Hot in May: Limonada Caliente con Ron, Canela y Clavo (Hot lemonade with rum, cinnamon and c edit

Ro_1 It has been raining cats and dogs recently in the tropics, that's why sometimes a warm drink, with a full body and delicious spices is the best answer to warm all us up. Pure coziness.

Why would you enjoy preparing this drink? Well, just because I can sense the sinfully delight it will bring to your life, AND because:

  • You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen.
  • It is easy to prepare, just a few steps, that's it.
  • It looks beautiful and it is really fragrant. Convinced?

Ro_2 Here is the recipe:


  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (or lemon if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup honey or light brown sugar to taste
  • 1 stick cinnamon and 2-3 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • Garnish: lime or lemon slices


  • Combine the water, lime juice, honey, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat, stirring, until honey disolves. Remove from heat and stir in the rum. Pour the beverage into mugs or glasses and garnish with lime slices.

Enjoy hot or cold! Try it and you will experience what I am talking about. Trust me on this one!

A Day That Really Schmecks: Coconut Cloud Cake edit

3_13 It all started last night while I was blog hopping through my list of favorite food blogs. Ahh! It was then when I arrived at The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz and I learned about "A Day that Really Schmecks!" event.

I loved the name and the story behind Edna Staebler, the author of Food that Really Schmecks. It was then, after reading the amazing "Cookie War" story, when I decided that even though I didn't have the cookbook (yet!) I would love to participate. I sent an SOS e-mail to Paz and she responded right away. Paz was kind enough as to e-mail me a few recipes of cakes so I could bake something delicious, then participate in the event. I was amazed when I noticed Paz had taken the time to transcribe the recipes she sent me. Thank you!

Edna Staebler’s cookbook, Food That Really Schmecks, has been republished. In honor of this occasion, food bloggers are participating in an event called A Day That Really Schmecks. The bloggers will prepare a recipe or two from the book and blog about it. Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict will post a line up of the blogged about recipes on   on January 15, 2007.
