Sipping Hot Chocolate

Sipping Hot Chocolate by Deliciously Yum!

Brrrr. That’s the only sound I’ve been making for the past couple of days. We can’t quite remember the last time the temperatures reached a two-digit number. It’s been bitter cold not just here but throughout the entire country and all I can think of are warm and cuddly things. What embodies that more than a cup of steaming cocoa? Making hot chocolate from scratch couldn’t be easier. One sip of this delectable beverage and you’ll bid adieu to powdered packages for good. Let’s indulge! [Read more…]

Hey Everyone!

How did you spend your Christmas? I sure hope everyone of you had a wonderful time. I think it’s safe to say that our time off can be best described with one word: FAMILY. Not only did we devour some delicious food and shared plenty of gifts, but countless hours were spent around the dining room table playing Settlers of Catan. Christmas was everything we hoped it would be and so much more.

Now onto welcoming a new year and dealing with all things winter.

Believe it or not, but this year we didn’t have a white Christmas. Our Winter Wonderland happened exactly 2 days later and the temps started to drop lower than they had so far. And it has only just begun…

My favorite activities already involve taking a long hot shower, sipping tea and snuggling my hubby. Not too shabby if you ask me ;).

Plus, I’ve discovered a new hot drink I can’t seem to get enough of – Spiced Orange Hot Chocolate. Mmmmm! [Read more…]

Thursday Love List

1. Our Christmas tree. I could sit in our living room all day, sipping a cup of tea and looking at this beauty. We have twinkling lights on it this year – so pretty.

2. Speaking of tea. Have you guys tried Teavana? We just got a store at our mall and I am so smitten. I purchased their Peppermint & White Chocolate Rooibos a couple weeks ago. So well balanced and flavorful. I see lots of tea tastings in my near future.

3. Christmas baking. My oven is always running and I enjoy baking any time of year. Something about Christmas makes it a little more special and these couple of weeks have been the best blogging experience so far. I’ve enjoyed sharing and creating recipes tremendously and love seeing you comment and support Deliciously Yum! Thank you for making this Christmas season even sweeter for us :).

4. Don’t open a bag of these. So delicious and addicting.
