Warm Up Winter with Hot Toddy Cupcakes

OMC Hot Toddy Cupcakes

Today I’m bringing together two of my favorite things – whiskey and cupcakes! During these winter months, nothing warms me up better than a hot toddy. It’s a warm cocktail of whiskey, honey, and lemon juice (sometimes made with tea.) It’s delicious and warms the soul. I presonally also think it’s a great home remedy for sore throats and colds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These Hot Toddy Cupcakes may not have the exact same effect but they’ll definitely satisfy a sweet tooth!

No Bags, No Boxes, No Problem

OMC A DIY Gift Bouquet

I love gift giving and gift wrapping. Pretty boxes, bags, paper, string…the works. I even have a set of drawers dedicated to that stuff (though how many of you are really surprised by that?) ๐Ÿ˜‰ย What’s fun to me about gift wrapping is that you get the chance mix things up a bit.

You probably don’t think of gluten free pretzels though ๐Ÿ˜…ย Well, for those of you who can’t have gluten or if like me, sometimes choose to go gluten-free, here is a Paleo Pretzels recipe for you to still join in on the fun!

Now, if you are looking for the exact same texture and taste from this recipe as you would from say, a Wetzel’s Pretzels, you might be disappointed. But these pretzels are actually really soft with just the right amount of chew and they pull apart like the real deal! They remind me of warm bagels, which are my faaav! Plus, these Paleo Pretzels have an extra garlic-y goodness. Check it out!
