When wild gusts of  wind rattles the screens and heavy, gray, storm-clouds fill the sky with thunder rumbling in the distance that’s the perfect time to make a batch of Warm & Cozy Hot Spiced Cider. There’s nothing cozier than to be safe at home, with a crock pot of hot cider simmering, on a cold, blustery, day! What a privilege to be a homemaker! To make warm and cheerful the place that we call home! To bless our loved ones with an atmosphere of comfort and tender loving care.

This is also such a wonderful hot beverage to make when you have guests coming over! It’s so easy because you make it in your crock pot/ slow cooker. Once you prepare it, guests can just help themselves! I just leave a ladle resting on a dish with mugs nearby so family and friends can make themselves at home!
