It is no secret to anyone that Fall is probably my favorite season. I've referenced as much with you here, here.... and, oh... here too.
While I was laid up this weekend with back issues, I compiled several ideas and pulled out many recipes I've considered over time. The pumpkins, mums, burlap, and all things decorative on our front steps and around the house were fostering a deeper excitement for the season, so I couldn't help myself, heavy meds or not.
So this is the first of my "FlavorFALL" entries. Apple Cider "Mojito" - a super-quick way to spruce up a get-together or just make an ordinary meal a little more festive. It is a celebration of one of the best fall staples, the apple. And while I adore hot cider - and I do mean adore - it's kind of nice to have a new twist on an old favorite, and served cold at that!
I'm looking forward to sharing my coming posts in this series. I hope you'll stay tuned, try your hand at a few, and let me know how it goes. I'm a sucker for good food conversation.
