Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.” 

Oh the joy , 

December nights have something , something that makes me stay late & just surf the web for #chrismasdecorations for our home . These days i'm spending my nights on +Pinterest with a large mug with mulled wine & chocolate , you must have creamy filled chocolate on these cold winter days , It a must ! :)

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 3 tangerines, halved
  • 3 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise (optional) gives a strong black licorice smell.
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger
  • 1 vanilla bean + 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 small branch fresh pine
  • 1 cup apple cider, pomegranate or cranberry juice
  • water


Combine all the ingredients in a medium size sauce pot. Fill the pot with water until it reaches 3/4 the way full. Place the pot on the stove and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, adding more water as needed. I let mine simmer for close to 4 hours and then let it cool over night and simmer again the next day. Just be sure to keep adding more water.

can you just smell it , hmmm 

Love R ,
