Cashew Pesto Pasta

Cashew Pesto Pasta Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

If there was ever a summer to start gardening, this was it. For years, I’ve wanted to grow a herb and veggie garden. I’d spend much of the spring thinking about it, talking about it, obsessing over it, only to throw all gardening plans to the wayside as soon as patio season commenced. I mean, […]

Mini Chocolate Mint Cheesecakes

Mini Chocolate Mint Cheesecakes - Cashmere & Cocktails

Ah, mint: how you spark debates in our home. See, I love mint. I’d welcome the leafy herb into my kitchen any day. The kids and my spouse however, not so much. While my main squeeze can handle mint in savoury meals, he turns his nose up when it’s incorporated into desserts. Meanwhile, the kids […]

Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl Recipe

On the days when I’m craving something healthy for breakfast, this Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl is a staple. It’s light, refreshing and the dark chocolate shavings kinda make me feel like I’m eating dessert (‘cause y’all know that I not-so-secretly like cake for breakfast). Why am I eating my smoothie out of a bowl instead […]

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownie Recipe by Cashmere & Cocktails

While there is certainly no bad brownie, there’s something to be said about the combination of salty peanut butter and fudgy chocolate. I went ahead and tried to make them healthy-ish by using Fatso Classic High-Performance Peanut Butter which is packed with plant based superfats, as well as chia and flax seeds (this makes my […]

Roasted Parsnip Soup

Parsnip Soup Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Alright, so I don’t normally post food on the blog that I didn’t cook myself, but I feel this parsnip soup was somewhat of a collaborative effort. You see, I was standing in the kitchen while my boyfriend made it, then I photographed it and ate it. That makes it kind of mine too, right? […]

Watermelon Margarita Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

It’s Margarita Monday, amigos! Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to end my first day back at the office than with one of these watermelon margaritas. Refreshing, sweet and tangy, these bad boys almost make me forget that I have to go back into the office again tomorrow and adult all over again. […]

Strawberry Champagne Jam

Strawberry Champagne Jam Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Little known fact: I hate drinking champagne. I know; how un-bougie of me, right? It isn’t just champagne though. I don’t know if it’s from all the times orange soda spray out of my nostrils as a child (which somehow happened every birthday party I attended), or because of the way it burns as it […]

Black Forest Pavlova

Black Forest Pavlova Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

They say when it rains, it pours, and last week I seemed to have found myself standing in the middle of a shit storm without so much as an umbrella to keep me cover. Without going into too many details, we had a cluster of family emergencies happen and I’m relieved to finally see the […]

One Year Blogiversary!

Blogiversary - Cashmere & Cocktails

Cashmere & Cocktails is one, y’all! While I’d hoped to be getting tanked in our backyard with friends for the occasion, the pandemic stunted all in-person plans and we will be having virtual drinks instead. You win some, you lose some, folks! It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 12 months since the blog’s […]

Classic Spaghetti Carbonara

With the amount of pasta I’ve been eating lately, you’d think that I’m carb-loading for a goddamn marathon. As some of you may already know, the only type of marathon I’ve been training for lately is the eating variety. But guess what? I’m totally fine with it. If quarantine has taught me anything, it’s that […]
