Stout + Ice Cream = A Great Idea

A couple years ago, we shared one of our favorite summer sweet treats, porter shakes! It’s still our go-to during the warmer months, but even easier, we tried a similar take in float form. In this month’s taste test, we partnered with Pinhole Press and upped the cute factor for Scott; that is, with Father’s Day just around theKEEP READING >


The 4th (and a Print Shop Sale!)

Happy birthday, America! To celebrate, we’ll be eyeballs deep in drywall dust – literally, since you’ll find us on a ladder, hammering away at the ceiling of our new home. The rest of this week and weekend will be spent in our finest painting clothes, and as soon as we pick up the old trash and previous-owner-doggie-presents fromKEEP READING >


Porter Shakes

In addition to regular ol’ beer tasting, sipping and overall indulgence while in Kalamazoo last weekend, we drank our desserts, too.

Our Favorites’ Favorites: The Fauxmartha

A Twist On Kisses

As we get closer (and closer, omg!) to the Christmas weekend ahead, we’ve been going over our to-dos, checking them twice, and realizing we hadn’t made one, small attempt at cookie cheer. While I’m fine drinking my nights away to a cup of hot buttered rum (a recipe passed down from my mom-in-law; hi, Ann!), Scott’sKEEP READING >
