It’s starting to become a tradition for me. As the fall months approach I reach for at least one new fall flavored beer to try out. This year I’ll be drinking two! The first is Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (and yes, that’s how they are spelling pumpkin). The second is Hazelnut Brown Nectar from Rogue Brewing Company.

I’ll even list a few non-alcoholic beverages you might want to try out to wet your whistle this autumn. Continue reading
There are some very creative Halloween desserts out there, but the ones that Los Angeles-based artist Christine McConnell creates take culinary creativity to the highest level. After you see some of here devilishly delicious pastries, you might think being a pastry chef is her day job.

Still Christmas shopping? Well good luck with that. Hey to make it a little easier for you, here’s a great suggestion for that special someone who has everything. Get them a bottle of Frozen Ghost Vodka from Canada. It is said to be distilled with water from a haunted lake.

And ahem…hopefully to prevent any bits of “old man” from showing up.
