Easy Homemade Hot Chocolate

My kitchen has been closed this week. Not because of the snow, but because I have a head cold. Yes, the dreaded head cold. All week long I've felt like a fire breathing dragon. Every breath I took in and out, my nose and throat felt like they were on fire.And the only thought I had all week was "how do I put this fire out?"I went for the fighting fire with fire option. Yep, everything I put in my mouth was hot. Well, not hot HOT because that would burn my mouth, but warm hot. I drank coffee (because no matter how sick I am, I still need my coffee, only coffee lovers can understand this {smile}), hot tea, Theraflu, hot water and lime (because that's all I found in the fridge at work), chicken broth, and hot chocolate....more

Wine accessories for the Vino-holic

I’m in a relationship. It makes me feel me beautiful, calm and emotional. It is a love affair that is slow and steady. I’m committed… to wine, in a non-addicted way of course. I’d like to think sometimes it is healthier than some of my previous relationships. Wine has become somewhat of a female ritual, a connection that is flirty and dreamy. I strongly insist that sipping on a glass of wine with friends is one of life’s greatest pleasures....more
