Warm Winter Cocktails

Blizzard Jonas' visit last weekend marked the official start of my least favorite season. Don't get me wrong, I find snow beautiful, I just wish it wasn't so cold. And wet. And messy. And did I mention cold?

On the bright side, having 3 feet of snow gave me every excuse not to leave my house and spend the better part of a week trying new recipes, cooking up some old favorites, and experimenting with some warm, boozy cocktails to melt away those snowed-in blues. After careful calculating and rigorous taste testing (okay, mostly that second thing), I've got three that are winners and I would like to share them with you! The first is a fun twist combining two traditional cocktails, the second is a soothing take on an old favorite, and the third is a boozed-up version of a wintry childhood classic...read on for details!

Welcome to the Knead to Know!


Welcome to the Knead to Know, the place  to stay up to date on everything happening with Love Bites by Erika!!! This is where I'll share news, new product information, special offers, event photos, as well as some fun behind the scenes looks at the latest things that we're working on!

I would also like to use this space to share my favorite go-to recipes, tips & tricks that have made my life in the kitchen a lot easier, and fun DIY projects that you can try at home! I am a completely self-taught chef and baker, and I would not be where I am today without the hard work and generosity of those culinarians who came before me and shared their knowledge and their craft. They were my teachers: their victories became my handbook, their failures became my lessons. In the spirit of paying it forward, the Knead to Know will be a place to share my hands-on approach to learning, both in the kitchen as well as in other areas of life. Stay tuned!!!
