Happy almost New Year! I’m starting one of my New Year’s resolutions right now…and that’s to start writing on my blog again.

I took a break. My muse left me for about six months as I was called to take care of family matters. 2014 was a challenging year but we are hours away from it being over and I’m ready to kick it to the curb.

Today I’m blogging about Glogg.

Cheers! Have a glass of Glogg!

Last night, we celebrated with dear friends who brought over a homemade bottle of Glogg and boy was it good! You serve it warm in little fancy glasses. It’s a wonderful wintery fusion of flavors that warm your spirits from the inside out!

As a New Year’s gift to you…I’m sharing the recipe. It will leave your home smelling wonderful with cinnamon, cloves and allspice.
