Here's a small gift to our dear readers: spiced holiday wine.
We make this is a kettle on the stove during the holidays. It keeps in the fridge for a few days, too. There's nothing like putting the baby to bed, curling up on the couch with a hot mug of this wine, and watching reruns of Arrested Development with your honey.
