Looking for a fresh and unique holiday cocktail? Well, this apple sider based recipe is just your ticket. It’s like a grown up version of apple cider. With a touch of cinnamon and a splash of gin –you’ll love it!

I think “Cinna-Gin” is the perfect name for this drink! (more…)
You know what I love more than a great cocktail? A great cocktail that is SIMPLE to make. No one wants to play bartender and have to craft overly-complicated cocktails. Keeping your recipes simple means you’ll have more time to spend with the friends and family that you’re hosting.

This ice cream packs a delicious punch –featuring pumpkin ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, whipped topping and caramel. It’s all the flavors of a pumpkin pie, plus more. And you guys, I could have eaten the ENTIRE carton.
Try adding in ice cream to your Thanksgiving dessert menu and watch the smiles pop up on your family’s faces. Serve alongside your favorite slice of pie or in these chocolate-dipped waffle bowls. (more…)

Simply bake your favorite frozen pizzas and serve up a beer cocktail –you’ll make everyone happy!
