Autumn, Food

Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate


As the days grow colder, all things cozy become a high priority. Even here in Georgia, the temps are a bit chillier than usual, the wind has picked up, and a drizzly week has necessitated a mug of something hot in my hands at all times.


Now coffee is my first love. If I have my way I’m nursing a couple cups through the morning, and enjoying an encore cup after lunch. But once evening rolls around caffeine doesn’t look so good on me, so it’s nice to have some unleaded options to keeps the coziness going!
