Boozy Pomegranate Cider

Pomegranate-Cider-5a

I whipped up this boozy cider on the first night it was acceptable to turn on the fire place. Wait, our fireplace has been on since September thanks to the fact that my husband accidentally paid the gas bill twice one month…one month, twelve months ago.

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Orange Muffins

Dark-Chocolate-Cranberry-Orange-Muffins-3

Well, friends, I just opened a can of pumpkin.  And since my recipes use only 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of pumpkin at a time, get ready for pumpkin inundation.  You’ll love it, I promise. This mini pumpkin bundt with bourbon glaze went quick in my house.  I’ve been wanting to develop a recipe for [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner For Two: Avocado Pasta

Avocado-Pasta-2

Just because dinner needs to be quick doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also be delicious and easy!  Avocado pasta is a dish I pull together frequently on busy nights.  I buy plenty of avocados to have on hand for lunches throughout the week, and one usually makes its way into dinner.
