Zucchini Pizza Boats

These zucchini pizza boats are the perfect light, healthy dinner, and they only require 6 ingredients to make!

Cranberry Mulled Wine Cider

My Fireball Apple Cider recipe has been extremely popular on Pinterest lately, and I can only assume it's because it's the perfect drink to warm you up during the holiday season.
