Author of Real Mom Kitchen, Laura Powell brings you a collection of recipes sure to get you toasty on even the coldest evenings. Don’t just survive the winter—warm it up! 

My thoughts:  Every morning when I wake up I have a cup of hot chocolate with my breakfast. It's true, winter or summer, it's a staple of my morning routine. If my kids or husband get the last of a container before I do, I am NOT pleased!

As I looked through the recipes I almost drooled. They look very good. There's even a frozen hot chocolate for the times I want something cold! Honestly this book is a winner for feeding my addiction! Which was one of the reason's that I wanted a copy to review. :)

I know that it's not winter yet.  The weather is getting to be chilly in the evenings and mornings.  I'm already looking for great gift ideas for the holidays and this is a good one. It's a small pamplet that is $2.99 at Amazon or $4.99 at other retailers.
