A lazy Sunday afternoon…

…needs a good peppermint hot chocolate.  One of my favourite things about Christmas, even though it is over now, is the peppermint hot chocolate at Starbucks.  Alas, my hometown does not have a Starbucks, although that is likely a good thing for my wallet.  The coffee shop/chain we do have has a candy cane hot chocolate, but it just isn’t the same.  So I searched the internet for a recipe that I could make at home that I could make as pepperminty and chocolatey as I wanted.  And I found one for peppermint simple syrup that was super duper easy and that I can add to hot chocolate or a mocha.  Around this time of year, and on a day with softly falling snow, it just hits the spot.

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
