Pina Colada Smoothie.

Flavorful Fall: Cozy Caramel Cider. Hi everyone! I'm kicking off the fall season with a few of my favorite autumn themed drink recipes. The first recipe I'm going to share with you is Caramel Apple Cider, which is one of my favorite drinks to cozy up with during a cool fall night while I read. There's something really comforting about apple cider, which I think has something to do with all the apple juice I drank as a kid. It's kinda funny how all my comfort foods are just variations of the things I ate when I was little. Anyway, here's the recipe for one of my favorite spins on apple cider adapted from a recipe I saw on : Caramel Apple Cider.

Ingredients: 1 '½ cups apple cider (You can buy it at any grocery store--just make sure you get "cider" and not "juice. ") 1 ½ tablespoons caramel sauce or dip ½ teaspoon vanilla extract whipped cream caramel flavored syrup Instructions: Combine all ingredients into a sauce pan.

When I was at BlogHer Food in Atlanta in May I had the great fortune of sipping the most delicious lemonade I’d ever, ever tasted. It was sold at a tiny cafe at the Auburn Street Market and I am fairly sure every single one of us on the field trip purchased a large serving. Ree Drummond - StumbleUpon. Iced coffee is my life.

When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. To say I couldn’t live without it is an understatement. It gives me the tools I need to cope. Iced coffee is a complicated thing, and there are many different approaches. 1. Given the previous set of facts, one would assume that the logical solution would be to brew hot coffee, then transfer the brew to the fridge, allow it to cool, and use it to make iced coffee from there. There are reasons this method results in a smoother, richer, more delicious concentrate than simply brewing strong coffee and refrigerating it.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade. One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY!

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade

I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Speaking of which, what gives sugar?! Sorry for the detour. Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t. The key to this being the ultimate lemonade is that you blend it up with the lemon rind in there.

And any time of day for that matter.

Sleepy-Time Smoothie

UGH... a darn COLD! I knew I'd need to set aside my chores and make the long drive to town to buy him some Nyquil. On the way, it dawned on me to use the Nyquil and a few more ingredients to turn that nasty-tasting wonder-elixer into a delicious (as possible;-) Smoothie for this Instructable's Contest. The Grocery Store was out of Cherry Flavor, so this was a REAL challenge! ;-O) Seriously.... this Mint-Chocolate Smoothie tastes almost as good as it looks. I would also like to add that my husband now thinks I'm an angel disguised as his wife. Disclaimer: Use Nyquil ONLY as directed on the bottle.
