Hat, mittens and spiked mulled cider


This morning we woke up in a great Christmas spirit and we went to get all our outdoor Christmas decorations.We just moved to our house at the beginning of this year so it’s always exciting to get new stuff. After a few hours of successful shopping, we finally came home and spent about 4 hours outside. It was soooo cold! About 22 degrees in Jersey right now…so I decided to make mulled cider (with alcohol) to get warmed up. What a great recipe I’m going to share with you. Perfect for those cold Winter days that you want to be a little more playful than hot cocoa…I’m on my 3rd cup! :)
Mulled Cider
2 quarts of Apple cider
1 cup of rum (i didn’t have rum so I used Pisco instead. Pisco is the national peruvian spirit. A kind of brandy produced in winemaking regions of Peru and made out of grape wine)
2 cinnamon sticks
2 whole cloves
1 tsp allspice
1 orange, sliced

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes…cheers!

Bushey Cherry Pie…with a twist ;)

Hey there! Finally I’m “live” with this new adventure. I have to say that I have been procrastinating to get this blog going…so “big thank you” to my husband that got it set up for me to begin! Let me start telling you that I was born and raised in Peru (so I speak with an accent…lol) You might not realize that because you can’t hear me but please be patient if you find any errors in my writing :) I work a full time job, I’m a full time mom of two beautiful girls and a full time wife of a wonderful husband that puts up with my crazy ideas all the time! What I want to share with you are new recipes (forgot to mention I am a chef), party planning ideas, house decorating tips and more than anything how to get it done not compromising your other busy mom activities. I realized that there is many other moms out there as busy as I am but very proud to “do it all”. Follow this blog, share your ideas, leave some comments…I’ll ensure you we will have fun together!
