Bourbon has a good smoky flavor that comes from the charred oak barrels that it is aged in. The hot, sticky Kentucky air speeds up the aging process giving it a smooth and mellow taste. In this hot-toddy recipe the star anise, cinnamon and cloves accentuate the taste of the bourbon. The orange and honey provide the classic accompanying flavors. Mix and pour into your favorite mug. Stir with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!

Our annual pumpkin carving party was a hit!

Together with our extended Rolling Greens family we had fun, decorated some amazing pumpkins, and had good eats! Our menu consisted of some of the best Fall recipes and cocktails from our favorite cookbooks.  Of course we had to share!!

For the main course we served up a super delicious Turkey Chili from One Pan Two Plates by Carla Snyder. This terrific cookbook is a compilation of 70 recipes designed for a weeknight party of two. Focusing on reduced prep time and eliminating the usual sink full of dishes, this cookbook serves up simple, complete, and truly delicious meals.
