P.S. Love Mom: Spiced Cream Cheese Caramel Apple Dip

Now, I know you have probably seen a variant of this dip at some point, dang, even just looking up the recipe I found hundreds of apple dips I didn’t even ask for, but nobody makes it like my mom does. Her recipe is always a hit at any party or get together, it is a breeze to make, and it makes a darn good snack. This dip has a hint of cream cheese, is perfectly sweetened, beautifully spiced, and has a dash of real caramel (shhh, its a secret 😉 ).

Harvest Apple Spiced Iced Tea (Red Robin Copycat Recipe)

Okay, I don’t know if everyone besides me has heard of this creation before, but holy cow are these things good. It’s basically sweet and spiced apple cider meets cold and refreshing black iced tea (but who says it has to be iced? 😉 ). When I researched this drink after getting it at Red Robin I found a lot of variations so I will provide three options to bring this deliciousness home. There are a ton of recipes, but seeing as Red Robin just recently released their version, there aren’t many copycats, so one of the recipes will be a direct copycat and the other two will be just as good variants so Y’all have options (who doesn’t love options?).

A New Take On Dessert: Warm Shakes for the Cold Season

Alright, I know it sounds weird but hear me out: this dessert is like a milkshake meets pudding meets the desire for something warm. It is basically a thin warm pudding made up to act and drink like a milkshake. It is ah-mazing. It has the thickness of a milkshake (and you could add all the same toppings and flavors to it as well), but it’s warm and creamy like a pudding. At first, when I came up with this idea, Derek thought I was being crazy again (like the time I tried to convince him we should melt gummy bears and chocolate together to make caramel), but after trying it, he’s hooked. This is the perfect dessert for a cold day that is truly decadent and indulgent like a shake.

P.S. Love Mom: The Perfect Apple Cider (A Passed Down Recipe)

This is one of my favorite recipes from my mom. It’s warming, sweet, deliciously spiced, and has a bit of butter that really brings it all together and coats your throat for the ultimate cold-weather beverage. This recipe is super simple, and whenever my mother used to make it people would act like she spent hours slaving over it (which is not the case).
