Huevos Rancheros at Five Points Market and Restaurant in Tucson(1)

Brunch wasn’t on our radar when we arrived in Arizona. Sonoran dishes like bacon-wrapped hot dogs? Sure. Meat-filled tacos? Of course. Pancakes and waffles? Not so much.

But, as we quickly learned, the Tucson brunch game is both strong and varied.

We also learned that knowing where to go and what to order is key if you want to eat the best brunch in Tucson.

This recipe for cranberry bread with dried cranberries is a little different as we’ve made it more like soda bread. The sweetness achieved by adding chocolate chips makes this a perfect light and airy treat for breakfast or even a dessert.

Bread with cranberries, walnuts, and chocolate chips partially sliced on cutting board.

Baking homemade bread can seem a little intimidating, but with this easy recipe it certainly doesn’t have to be. It starts with an easy quick bread dough that makes an artisan-style cranberry walnut loaf.

It’s perfectly crusty on the outside with a delightfully tender texture on the inside! It’s truly one of the best homemade bread recipes you’ll ever make.

The bread is studded with dried cranberries that are sweet and slightly chewy as well as dark chocolate chips that give this bread the perfect balance of sweet and savory flavor.

I love making fresh cranberry recipes, especially during the holiday season, like these Festive Cranberry Cupcakes and this

You’ll never forget the Mind Eraser cocktail thanks to its easy recipe and fun flavors.

Mind Eraser with Straw from Above

We have vague memories of drinking Mind Eraser cocktails back in the 1990s, a decade after the layered cocktail was a star at NYC discotheques and lounges around the world.

However, now that we’ve crafted Mind Erasers at home, we can’t forget the caffeinated cocktail with stark similarities to the Black Russian.

What Is a Mind Eraser?

Mind Eraser with Straw and Black Background
The Mind Eraser cocktail is tamer than its name implies. It’s also delicious.

It would be easy to call the Mind Eraser a fizzy Black Russian or a Black Russian with bubbles since that’s essentially what it is. But not exactly.

Yes, the Mind Eraser drink starts with the Black Russian’s two ingredients, coffee liqueur and vodka, and

This Horseradish Sauce is creamy and full of flavor. The horseradish is strong and spicy, and paired with sour cream and other unique flavors, this sauce takes any dish to the next level!

I grew up as a meat and potatoes kind of girl. It was always one of my favoite meals. That’s probably why I love this horseradish sauce so much. It’s perfect on a juicy steak (try this easy air fryer steak recipe), on top of a prime rib, or with cube steaks!

This horseradish sauce is so easy to make, there’s no reason not to have it along with your next steak dinner! Horseradish has a really nice spice to it, and paired with these other ingredients the flavor adds a whole new layer

Our Coquito recipe will show you how to create the Puerto Rican cocktail at home. It’s a tasty cocktail with a boozy, coconut kick. It’s also a great option for people who don’t want to add raw eggs to their creamy Christmas cocktails.

Coquito with White Background

Is it just us or is the Coquito having a moment? The Puerto Rican holiday tipple seems to be everywhere both online and in real life.

The traditional Caribbean cocktail initially hit our radar while we were researching holiday drinks. Then, by pure coincidence, we bumped into a TV commercial (sponsored by Goya) featuring the milky concoction along with dancing gingerbread man cookies.

We were so entranced that we had to rewind the DVR both for the dancing gingerbread men and the drink. Before long, we went to the store to buy coconut cream and ordered a brand new blender online.

I love German food and trying to recreate it at home! A few more recipes you’ll have to try out: pork schnitzel, German oven pancakes, and this German potato salad! (It’s one of my favorite sides!)

German Christmas Fruit Loaf (Christstollen)

This holiday season, swap out your traditional fruit cake for this tasty German version! Translated, “stollen” means fruit loaf. These are eaten all year round, but in December they’re called Christstollen. Stollen bread is soft with the perfect chew. Similar to a fruit cake, it’s also loaded with cranberries, raisins, and candied citrus for delicious fruity flavor!

Whether you’re looking for a fun holiday gift or just a way to treat your family, this white chocolate peppermint fudge recipe is a classic.

White chocolate fudge with peppermint candy pieces.

I was so surprised to read that it’s believed fudge originated from Baltimore, Maryland!

I may be a Florida girl now, but I’m originally from the Old Line State. I still make Maryland crab dip and Old Bay crab cakes, both recipes from my home state, and both delicious!

This fudge is rich and creamy, but with the refreshing taste of mint. It is one of those dishes that feels like it should be complicated, but it really is an easy recipe for the holiday season.

The red and white colors are ideal for the winter months, making this a great homemade Christmas gift for family or friends.

The only problem is that this festive fudge tastes so good it may be hard to give

The French Connection cocktail has a fun name and is super easy to craft at home. However, don’t underestimate this two-ingredient cocktail that tastes greater than the sum of its two parts. It’s a cocktail keeper.

French Connection Cocktail with Black Background

The French Connection intrigued us before we took our first sips…

For starters, its name reminds us of France. After multiple visits to cities like Paris, Lyon, Dijon and Strasbourg as well as Marseille, we feel a connection to the hexagonal nation.

And, since we met at an Oscars party, we also have an affinity for movies that have won Academy awards. You guess it – this cocktail was named after The French Connection movie.

With a warm and savory artichoke and sundried tomato filling, these easy vegan stuffed mushrooms are a hearty and delicious appetizer, perfect for holiday parties or any occasion.

Mushrooms stuffed with artichoke mixture on wood platter.

Did you know artichokes are considered to be one of the oldest foods in the world, first harvested in the Middle East? I loved the food there, especially this Baba Ghanoush recipe!

It wasn’t until around 70 AD that they became popular when ancient Greece and Rome discovered its flavor. Have you been to Rome? I managed to see so much in just 3 days in Rome – it’s totally doable if you have other places you want to go!

Later, around the 15th century, the humble artichoke’s popularity soared in Florence, and by the 16th century, Italy caught on, too. Who else loves Italian appetizers? Try this one- it’s my best bruschetta recipe!

Stuffed mushrooms are always an easy yet impressive
