fallish things

mini cupcakes

Here's a mini round-up of a few fallish things I've made so far, starting with mini chocolate cupcakes with a dollop of cuteness.

hot spiced cider

No, those aren't bugs in my hot spiced cider, those are extra cloves which probably didn't add to the flavor much. I just love spiced cider, and it's probably my favorite part of fall!

Making spiced cider is really simple, even for one cup:

1 cup apple cider
3 orange slices
2 lemon slices
1-2 tablespoons honey
1 cinnamon stick
3-5 cloves in a tea ball

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat on medium, covered, for ten minutes or until heated thoroughly and tastes as spicy as you like (the longer it steeps, the spicier it will get). You can also make this with apple juice, or part apple-whatever and part cranberry juice.

Also, I will be entering this to Sperly's 100 post giveaway over at RunRoamRecycle.

not butter tarts

Not butter tarts, because I used chopped dried cranberries instead of currants. I was told I failed a family recipe, though it was admitted that these looked delicious nonetheless. =D
