Recipe: Fancy, Not-So-Fancy Hot Cocoa

Aahhhh. The weekend marked the start of Autumn and right on time, it was gloomy, rainy and chilly. But no complaints here! I swapped out my summer dresses for fuzzy sweaters and made my first batch of hot cocoa. It really is the easiest recipe, it’s not even worth being called a recipe. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid and I’m sharing it with you today. Here are the simple things you need:

Gifts For: The Beer Lover

Lager, pilsner or stout? Do you know the difference and which glass it should be served in? My husband is quite the beer connoisseur. I’ve definitely grown my taste for it over the years and find wheats to be my favorite. If you have a beer lover in your life, there’s certain to be a brew that’s just perfect for summer-gifting.

Grill Time: The Goods and the Goodies

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

What do you have your BBQ arsenal? My husband used to love using the charcoal starter to get things going quickly without the use of lighter fluid. Then he would put a couple bricks of damp wood (usually cherry or what ever he had on hand) to smoke more flavor into our grilled meats. It was quite a process but we had some memorable meals because of it. What are your grilling and entertaining rituals?

You can find a charcoal starter at your local hardware or home goods store.

Father’s Day: Three awesome gifts for the dad that has everything

My dad is super easygoing on just about anything. You can talk him into seeing what ever you movie you want, eating anything, trying anything – he’s pretty fun to hang out with! Thing is, he’s pretty particular when it comes to clothes. He won’t wear a turtleneck or scarf in the winter, he says it “bothers my neck.” And we could be hiking through a horrendous snowstorm be he won’t wear a sweater because “they’re itchy.” Even if it gets freakishly cold out in let’s say, June, he’ll refuse to put on a long sleeved shirt. He’s just weird like that sometimes.

Is your dad hard to buy for? Maybe he has everything he needs but does he have everything he wants? Here are three unique ideas that might just surprise you – and him!
