We stumbled upon this enchanting blog called Top With Cinnamon, written by an 18 year old student named Izy, living in London. She makes her “mums” family recipes, mostly baked goods like these cookies. Another batch of cold weather is here on the East Coast, so it’s a good weekend to savor some time inside in the warm kitchen baking chocolate cookies, right? Here’s a link to the recipe.

We just couldn’t resist sharing this recipe for Kit Kat Cheesecake bars via Bakers Royal. Remember a color palette doesn’t just have to lend itself to decorating your home. You can make your party look like the pages out of a magazine by weaving in your color palette where possible, not only with tablecloths and flowers but with desserts and drinks. And with Saint Patrick’s Day coming up soon, these Black and Tan Beer Pops from Betty Crocker are a great alternative rather than just serving up everything green.
We really like following Honestly Yum for their recipes and they featured this Buddha’s Hand and Thai Basil cocktail recipe this week that we thought we had to share.

This cocktail would be great for a yellow and/or green theme and unique enough to be a signature cocktail for an event. We are going to link you to the recipe because there are gorgeous photos to go along with each step of the recipe. Happy … Read more

I love this photograph from inspiringtheeveryday.com. This blog has so many great seasonal recipes. And although these stone fruit tarts might be more of a summer recipe, take a peek at the fall and winter recipes like butternut squash, celeriac, parsnip and apple soup. With the weather getting colder and the holidays right around the corner this color palette seems so inviting and warm. As we do every Monday we’ve selected Benjamin Moore Paints to coincide with our inspiration photo.
Concord Grape Smash anyone? You’ll find the recipe below and on Food52.com. We are loving this site that has contests 52 weeks out of the year for winning recipes from “inventive home cooks” throughout the country. They also compiled the winning recipes into books.

I took a rare morning off today and I went on a field trip with my daughters. We went apple picking at the Milk Pail in Watermill, NY. It’s a 13th generation family run farm by the Halsey family. Nestled near Mecox Bay and the ocean it’s a beautiful farm complete with a stand in the middle of the fields complete with coffee, cider, donuts, fruit and more. I thought I’d share their Hot Spiced Cider recipe they gave us this morning. Can’t wait to try it out! – Lynn Butler Beling The Milk Pail’s Hot Spiced Cider (serves 8) … Read more
