The boys helped me decorate the house this weekend, and I think we’re all ready for fall.
This wassail recipe gets me in the mood and is the easiest I’ve ever found. It’s a go-to recipe when we have company, and it makes the kitchen smell wonderful like spiced cider.
Leftover wassail can be stored in the refrigerator and makes a great decaf alternative to coffee.
