We never really saw signs of fall here in Florida like we usually do about this time of year. So, you can imagine how happy I am when we woke up to colder weather. Today I pulled out a cozy orange sweater and a scarf!
How about that? I know what you’re thinking you think I am crazy…but Florida can be so hot and I am a Northern girl. I am used to walks in Central Park and the fall beauty and hustle and bustle of NYC!
So tonight after a days work and dinner. I am going to make a yummy hot toddy. No, this is not a boozed up drink but a warm and fall and winter drink. My husband and family love it too.
To make this warm drink you need:
1 piece of star anise
5 cinnamon sticks
2 Tbsp light brown sugar
2 quarts or less of apple cider
slices of fresh green apples
Place in a cheesecloth the cinnamon sticks,cloves and a piece of star anise. Tie it on and place in a sauce pan of the apple cider. Place it on a low flame. Allow it all to make love together on the stove top.
Next remove the butcher twined up spice bundle from the pot.
Pour the cider in a mug and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon Sugar or nutmeg on top before serving. Embelish with an apple slice. Delicious…especially if you love cider.
Slather up with your fav’ seasonal hand and body lotion and just chill out in bed and CLEAR your head. YOU deserve it!
Cozy Comfort Food! Ican’t wait to make and enjoy this weekend. On a pie high!
If you love Cheeseburgers then try this delicious Cheeseburger Pie. I made mine in a cast iron pan but it is supposed to go into a 9” pie plate. I like using my cast iron pan because it goes from the burner to the oven which means less clean up! Source: Debi Schull […]

I love to entertain, kiss and cook! This week and or weekend why not whip up this recipe for a warm wine brew?
1 Liter of red wine
A little bit under a 1/2 cup of sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon of organic honey
Warm all of the above on the stove top. Bring to a bit of a boil, strain and pour in mugs.
I first tasted this in my travels to Italy…in cool or cold weather or when I entertain this is one of my warm and cozy recipes. Another version can be to add a dash of nutmeg and some lemon or orange peel. Either recipe it is delicious.
