Cozy Kitchen hacks to warm you up from your kitchen…

I love this time of year! The season we look forward to with the yummiest of foods and more. So, here are my fav’ things to do or make around this time of year especially!

Add some dark chocolate and maybe throw in a hot pepper for a little or a lot of kick when making a pot of chili.

Have OLD unused Mulling Spices in your cabinets?

I do and a few nights ago until now I am enjoying all the spices: Allspice,cinnamon,orange peel and cloves. I made a pot of Stove Top Potpourri for my home. All you do is take one or two handful of it and toss it in some boiling water and leave on stove top on low. My house smells AMAZING. It is like perfume for your home but not from a plug in or spray can. Healthier too.

Another cozy thing I like to brew is some hot tea or cider and embellish with orange rinds,dried apple slices,cinnamon sticks,cherries,star anise and nutmeg. SO fun and delicious.

Next recipe sweeten up your wontons!

Next time you make Chinese food or you feel like a won ton. Make dessert version with a crunchy twist.

Sweet Wonton Crispy Delights

What you will need for this easy recipe:

1 dozen won ton wrappers (*or more)


Cinnamon sugar or Brown sugar

Brush a little melted butter over each won ton.

Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon over the top.

Sprinkle brown sugar over that.

Bake in oven until slightly golden brown.

Take out and serve with jasmine or green tea,coffee or a glass of milk. YUM!

Maple Bacon with a Twist

Love bacon? Me too! Sometimes too much.

If you want to sweeten up your bacon and on the cheap! Simple place your bacon slices in the pan. Pour a dash of a quality MAPLE syrup over them. OMG! You haven’t lived until you tasted this bacon. My husband asked me why it tastes so good? Because he knows the plain bacon doesn’t taste quite like that. I call it my Secret Bacon. Oh and have this beyond eggs in the morning on a BLT sandwich and you will love it even more!
