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.

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

The Pioneer Woman’s Mulled Apple Cider Recipe

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! We adapted the recipe slightly, but oh, so good!

  • Dice up the apples and toss them into the cider.
  • Place orange slices in pot.
  • Also add the allspice berries, the cinnamon sticks, and the cranberries.
  • Pour in the sugar and stir it around to dissolve.
  • Bring the mixture to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Add the brandy if using, then simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.

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
