How to Make the Perfect Moscow Mule

How to Make the Perfect Moscow Mule with Nov and Somm

One of my favorite classic cocktails is the Moscow Mule. First popular in the 1950’s, this cocktail has been enjoying a recent revival and is one of my favorite drinks. The fresh mix of ginger and lime makes this a perfect drink year round. Recently two of my friends launched a drinkware development company, Nov & Somm. Their first product is a copper Moscow Mule mug. Being able to support my friends while creating and sharing some Moscow Mule recipes with you seemed like a perfect combination.

Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Lately, we have been on a spring roll kick. These spring rolls are fresh, easy to make, and delicious! Including the prep time, I would say that these spring rolls with peanut sauce take about 30 minutes to make. This makes them perfect for a quick and healthy meal. They are a fun alternative to salads and I love that I can mix and match for different flavors.

Suggested below are ingredients that we use a lot when making these spring rolls, but you can use any combination of fresh vegetables that you like.

Kelp Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Kelp Noodles with Peanut Sauce


When I first tried kelp noodles, I was surprised by them. They are clear noodles with a slightly crunchy texture and not a whole lot of flavor on their own. When you marinade them, kelp noodles do an amazing job of taking on the flavor of any vegetables and sauces they have been sitting with. These kelp noodles with peanut sauce are gingery, garlicky, and full of so much flavor! I love the mix of the creamy peanut sauce, the slight crunch of the kelp noodles, and the fresh vegetables.

Kelp noodles are rich in calcium, iron, and vitamin K. They are very low-calorie, gluten-free, and can be a great substitute for traditional pasta or just a fun new item to try. While they are delicious, kelp noodles are high in iodine and should not be consumed often because of their high sodium levels. Iodine can help keep your thyroid healthy and sea vegetables are a great way to include iodine in your diet.

Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie Recipe

Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie Recipe

As the weather is getting warmer, I have had crazy cravings for watermelon. One of my friends told me about a de-bloating juice she had with her family that was from Dr. Oz. I gave the original recipe a try and, as always, modified it a bit to fit my own tastes. It’s so refreshing!

What you will need to make a Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie:

  • The juice of 2 lemons, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 cups watermelon, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • One 1-inch piece of ginger

How to make a Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I use my Vitamix for this and it blends perfectly on the low speed setting. If you are using a regular blender, you may need to add an additional 1/4 cup of water.
  2. Enjoy!

This recipe is based off of Lea Michele’s Debloating Juice from Dr. Oz.
