Cranberry Tea : A Mulled Cranberry Drink

Although it is called cranberry tea,  this beverage does not really contain any actual tea. I am not sure who came up with the name, but it really is a wonderful drink…hot or cold.   This easy drink is made from scratch using fresh fruits that are full of vitamin C…a great thing in the winter […]

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

While many people may believe that a pumpkin spice latte the epitome of a fall beverage, to me it is a split between apple cider and hot cocoa. Their allure for me goes beyond just them tasting good; it is also in my memories of them. Hot cocoa (hot chocolate) brings back memories of high […]

Fresh Lemonade

Although it is still spring, it is a HOT day here. I decided to make some fresh squeezed lemonade for my family as a treat after working in the yard. This is not a family recipe that I am passing on.  My father used to only want the frozen kind of lemonade, so my mom […]

Old-Fashioned Hot Cocoa with Homemade Marshmallows

I remember hearing Martha Stewart tell her viewers more than once that they had to make their own marshmallows. She said they were much better than store bought marshmallows. When I heard her, I would never have believed that I would actually make my own marshmallows. Lately, I started thinking about how much my daughter […]
