Spiced Hot Apple Cider

Spiced Hot Apple Cider by lamb + wolf


Today has been one of those days where things just seem to be falling apart. We hired someone to come pressure wash the house and they agreed to be here at 9:00 am and didn’t show up until 11:15 am. Not a great start. I believe Lachlyn is teething or bored or something, but she is super clingy and cranky lately. I’ve also been handed several ads to complete for work all at once… it seemed I had nothing to do for weeks, then BAM – here’s some work for you! Not like I’m complaining, cause work is great when it comes to billable hours.

It’s been a lot cooler here in Georgia. I seem to have lost my taste for hot coffee, but I do love hot apple cider. Here’s my version:

Spiced Hot Apple Cider

  • 2 cups Simply Apple Cider
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of ground allspice
  • a dash of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 jumbo marshmallow
  • 1 oz Rye Whiskey (optional ~ I use Whistle Pig Straight Rye Whiskey)

Heat the cider and spices in a small saucepan over med-low heat until your desired temperature. If using whiskey, pour it into the bottom of your mug. Put 1 jumbo marshmallow into your mug and pour the hot cider over it and serve!

Simple, easy and keeps you nice and warm!

Recipe Roundup!

This week I’ve got two dinners + two desserts for you to try. I’m trying to slow down my baking until I can round up some more friends to take them… or at least switch over to baked goods that can be shipped! I never thought it would be so hard to get baked desserts out of the house, but husby + I just don’t eat them often enough to keep up with it all.


Chicken Gyros via Annie’s Eats ~ instead of stuffing into a pita, I used naan bread as a substitute. Tastes amazing, but be prepared to start 24 hours before you want to eat to prepare the tzatziki sauce.

Mini Whiskey Oatmeal Cream Pies via Food Plus Words ~ I used Cabin Fever, a maple flavored whiskey in this recipe. They taste exactly like the pre-packaged oatmeal cream pies with a kick of booze!
