Spice It Up: 5 Ways to Use Mulling Spices this Fall

There's nothing quite as festive in the fall as walking into a home that smells of apples and spices. You could achieve this feeling by making an apple pie. Or you could do what I do and put a pot of mulling spices on the stove!

Mulling spices are quite versatile in the kitchen and around the home. And in case you don't believe me, here are 5 ways to use mulling spices to spice up your life this fall.

So while I love gardening and have a burgeoning collection of plants (my husband may call me a plant hoarder or crazy plant lady), I did not always have a green thumb.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've killed more than one succulent. But I think that's why I'm particularly drawn to air plants -- they are hearty folk.

If you frequent the Davis Farmers Market than you've probably noticed the woman with the brimmed hat and infectious smile that is seemingly always at the corner stall on Saturday mornings.

The Madisons started off growing bulbs and cut flowers on their 22 acre farm, about 200 types, before moving to olives. Throughout this time, they've also grown a dozen or so varieties of citrus, including clementines, oranges, bergamot, and yuzu, as well as other produce such as quince, melons, and blackberries. 

How Do You Hygge?

How Do You Hygge?
With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s easy to get caught up in the go-go-godo-do-dosee-see-see. There are cookies to bake, trees to cut, lights to see. Don't get me wrong, I am SO excited to do all of these things with my family this holiday season. But sometimes we just need to take a rest, enjoy the company around us, and snuggle our loved ones for a few minutes.
