Mulled Apple Cider from The Pioneer Woman

**contest is closed

I’ve been a busy girl this past month, and I couldn’t wait to rest up this weekend–feet up, book in hand, cup of tea and Haggis our doggie by my side–and scroll through the pages of my friend Ree’s new book, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations, which arrived at my house during my whirlwind month of travels.

And more good news – today Ree is giving away 3 signed copies to my readers! Yipee!

A Year of Holidays

It’s so beautiful. I’m so very proud of her. She covered 12 holidays, and the book is so well done. I’m a picture-gal–I love pictures that tell a story, the whole story, and Ree’s photography is perfect for making me smile, especially when I see Charlie always posing for the camera!

Charlie. The Pioneer Woman's A Year of Holidays

Here’s a little excerpt from Ree, summing up what the book is about. Quite honestly, it’s more than a holiday book, because most recipes could be made almost any day of the week. I like that.

There’s nothing more delicious than a holiday.

Oh, is it ever true. Whether it’s the anticipation of Christmastime or the ghoulish glee of Halloween, if I see a holiday on the horizon, I simply can’t contain my excitement. There’s just something about the traditions, the family togetherness, the resurfacing of childhood memories . . . the making of new ones. Holidays are wonderful, special, and fun . . . and they always make me happy.

And one more thing: They make me want to cook! –Ree

I, too, get excited for the holidays, and cooking! There’s just nothing quite like bringing people together in a cozy home, and making them happy with a home-cooked meal.

Starting the holidays off this week, I decided to make Ree’s Mulled Apple Cider recipe, which we’ve all been enjoying!

Have I told you how delicious my house smells? Sometimes I think it’s worth making hot cider with mulled spices, just to get the house smelling GOOD.

I even pulled out the bourbon, and thought I’d take Ree up on her idea of spiking the cider!

Mulled Apple Cider, The Pioneer Woman

Warm, mulled apple cider makes life worth living on freezing cold winter days. Warm apple cider spiked with brandy? Ditto. Times a thousand. Mmmmmmm.

Serve this in a nice mug with a piece of rum cake, then curl up by the fire, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket, and work on your Christmas list.

And that’s an order! – Ree

Mulled Apple Cider from The Pioneer Woman

With Halloween here this week, I’m keeping this delicious drink brewing on our stove. And I’ll probably be making it again for Thanksgiving, and then again for Christmas … I just love easy recipes that make people happy!

  415. My favorite holiday is probably Thanksgiving. It’s an excuse to pour a lot of love and energy into cooking to feed friends and family, and usually end up playing board games (we’re the family who “adopt strays”, or friends whose family is in another state or country, and would be otherwise alone). What is missing, is the panic to get presents or candy ready for the inevitable gifting, and decorating is simple, often just whatever happens to be in your garden. :)

    My “signature” dish has become fennel and apricot stuffing. I found the recipe at Real Simple, and tweaked it a little here and there, but at heart, it’s still the same. I like it that it’s lighter, and by substituting the butter, chicken stock and eggs (all pretty straightforward), you could make it vegan. I confess, I’d be happy eating just the stuffing with hard cider gravy and no turkey…

    I’ve got a link to the recipe below.

  521. Christmas is my favorite by far! I love everything about it! As for the recipe, either Chocolate Cherry Chiparoons, or my Grandma’s molasses cookies! Yummy!

  522. My favorite holiday – hands down – is Christmas. I make mashed potatoes, turkey, and killer prime rib, – and turkey soup from the fabulous turkey carcass (even shamelessly asking for other carcasses from work potlucks). That soup often is of such volume that it’s in two 10 qt. pots, and gets parceled out into multiple ZipLoc or Glad containers and delivered to family members and friends!

  523. My favorite “holiday” is my Wedding Anniversary (aka hubby’s birthday).

  524. Thanksgiving is my favorite and I am always in charge of the dressing. We make regular and oyster dressing with my family. When it’s just my husband and me, I make dressing with hazelnuts & apples. He loves it.

  525. I love Christmas! My favorite recipes, the ones I make every year regardless, are spiced ginger cookies, my mom’s Christmas Nut balls, and prime rib. Lots of other recipes have come and gone, but these have been around for over 28 years!
