The ingredients for holiday simmer pots.


I love holiday candles and scents!  You’ll usually find some sort of candle burning at our home all throughout the holiday season.  I just love the cozy atmosphere it creates!  However, there are times when the candles are put away and simmer pots full of wonderful herbs, spices and fruits are put on the stove top.  Nothing can compete with the gorgeously delicious aromas that fill the house when these all natural ingredients warm and simmer.

I love giving little gift bags full of ingredients for cozy simmer pots to friends and family too!  They make thoughtful little hostess gifts that say “thank you for having us over,” as well as perfect party favors to send home with your special guests.
