Fall is my absolute favorite season. The changing colors are gorgeous, you get to break out the first wave of scarves and jackets, and All Those pesky insects que have been plaguing you since spring are finally starting to die. It's the perfect season for getting up early, bundling up in your favorite blanket or hoodie, and inhaling the cool air of an autumn morning. A perfect fall morning is not complete, However, without the perfect fall drink. I suggest Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate to fill particular role-que trust me, it is one delicious mouthful. Besides, nothing says autumn like pumpkins and nothing says "time to destroy my diet" like white chocolate.
- 3 cups milk (I prefer whole because it makes for a richer and thicker drink, but you can use whatever kind you like.)
- 1 cup of canned pumpkin (or pumpkin puree if you're feeling industrious)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 ounces white chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1 pinch of salt
- Heat the milk, pumpkin, spices and vanilla in a sauce pan until the mix starts to simmer, then remove from heat.
- Add the chocolate and stir until it melts.
- Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and cinnamon.
- Go outside and enjoy the crisp autumn morning with your tasty treat.
Thanks to Cafe Luna for the recipe.

Cerberus: Book 1 of Parish by P.K. Gallagher
Paranormal YA Fantasy For Kaeden Parish, life in Solace has always followed certain rules—everything makes sense, everything can be planned for, and everything is as it seems. Unfortunately, the secret harbored by his gorgeous, albeit guarded girlfriend is about to shatter all of that. After a successful attack on his life opens his eyes to a world of war, shadows, and supernatural creatures—a world he didn’t plan for—Kaeden finds himself resembling the sort of monster he has always feared. As he desperately struggles to resist a new temptation, danger draws ever nearer, threatening the ones he loves most. A prophecy tells of a final battle and great destruction, and Kaeden must decide which side he is on, a choice that could mean the end of the world. In Book 1 of the Solace Series, P.K. Gallagher pulls readers into a realm where good and evil are at war, and the outcome of it all rests on one young man’s decision to either go and live...or stay and die. This is where the story of Parish begins.
Author P.K. Gallagher
Despite writing stories that take place almost exclusively in New England, speculative young adult fiction author P. K. Gallagher has lived in the suburbs of the south her entire life. It is to this that she attributes her love of the fantastic and the supernatural—writing such things was her only escape from the monotony of Suburbia. Gallagher graduated from Florida A&M University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a fervent desire to never set foot inside a newsroom again. She currently lives in Atlanta and divides her time between working a day job, finishing her works in progress, and perfecting her plans for world domination.
