Berry Trifle Recipe

Just because we’re celebrating in smaller numbers this year doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in big, extravagant fashion when it comes to the food we’re serving. Our Berry Trifle with Vanilla Cream is a showstopper, both in its dramatic colorful presentation and its deliciousness. It’s the type of dessert that you can leave out while playing board games next to the fire and there won’t be leftovers. It’s sorta healthy. Sorta. We first heard of a trifle on an episode…

La Zambra, Costa del Sol

We really dig a hotel that calls itself a “rebel retreat.’ Located on the Costa del Sol, newly opened La Zambra is a design hotel with a bohemian vibe. Its décor would fit right into Tulum, but instead it’s located between Marbella and Malaga, in the space of the former den of debauchery, the Hôtel Byblos. And, the transformation is exciting. Overview Though the property was originally home to the hedonistic, La Zambra has been completely refurbished under the Hyatt…
