It’s a beautiful fall day.

We are home away from home and enjoying a beautiful fall day. It is cold *bbrrrrr* windy but there’s nothing like fresh air, the smell of orange leaves, walking with my mini me with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Yes, we love this weather.


Hope you are enjoying this weather as much as we do. Have a great one. Stay tuned for more news soon.



Homemade Hot Chocolate.

Hot-chocolate mix is a wintertime staple. A homemade version is delicious and natural — containing only cocoa, sugar, and salt — and especially economical compared with store-bought mixes.



3 1/2 cups sugar

2 1/4 cups cocoa

1 tablespoon table salt

Whole milk for serving


  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.

  1. Step 2

    For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.
