It's not really the holidays until the house is filled with the floating smells of cinnamon, citrus, and yummy things baking in the oven.

+ tangerines
+ cinnamon sticks
+ fresh pine
+ cloves
+ fresh ginger
+ vanilla
+ apple cider, pomegranate, or cranberry juice

Doesn't that sound divine?! Find the full recipe here.
