Hot Mulling Cider

This recipe is perfect for cold winter nights. It's easy and delicious! 

1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. dried ground orange peel
1 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well until well blended. Divide into 1/4 cup single serving portions for gift giving (perfect size for baby food jars) or in a larger jar for entire mix.

To make one serving, add 1/4 up hot mulling spice mix with 1 cup apple juice or wine and 1/4 cup water. Heat on stove and serve.

Whirlwind few weeks!

As many of you know, Andy and I were fortunate enough to have an unexpected trip to watch the Badgers play in The Rose Bowl. We drove down to Nashville, flew to San Diego, and then drove to Santa Monica. It was a crazy time, but overall, I have extremely grateful to John, Andy's very generous boss for taking us down there.

Because of this whirlwind I haven't had time to clean my house let alone bake something. I promise I will soon! In the meantime, here are a few pics from our trip to admire!
