Peppermint Tart

Hey there friends! It's been a while, eh?  Over the past four weeks we have been moving into our new home, unpacking everything we can every day, moving into a hotel for the night because our brand new house flooded, then moving back in, all while trying to keep a somewhat normal schedule with the boys. It has been quite the wild ride, but I'm excited to hopefully get back into the food blogging groove again after taking a break to get everything else in life sorted out. I think a good break is healthy, and gave me a minute to prioritize everything and get our family settled in as much as possible before the holidays.  Something I've been waiting for for a long time is to cook in our brand new kitchen, and let me tell you, it has been heavenly! Everywhere we've lived so far, I've always had this feeling of "borrowing" everything. Like the kitchens I've been using have never really felt like "home." But now, having my very own kit

Crock Pot Holiday Wassail

Christmas just isn't complete without hot wassail in my house! I grew up with my Mom simmering it away in her smaller crock pot, and the smell was just enough to get my mouth watering. Tasting it was even more delightful!  I've tried quite a few hot wassail recipes, and have fallen in love with so many of them. It's really hard to screw up hot wassail, in my opinion, haha. It's basically warmed up fruit juice with warm seasonal spices. This version is a new one I tried this year and fell pretty hard for. Can't wait for you  to try it!
