Cinnamon-Honey Warm Milk


Well, I can honestly say this has been one of the longest weeks of my life. I have been super-sick, not ER sick, but 10 seconds from ER sick. I believe it was some kind of flu. It started with my toddler. Thankfully, she had a very mild case. Unlucky me caught it next and boy oh boy will I remember that experience for the rest of my existence. To makes things worse, we've all had a cold for over a week as well. So, before I became 10 seconds from ER sick, and life was simply about dealing with a cold, my husband suggested a drink that people in North Africa (and other places too, I'm sure) make to help soothe cold symptoms. I am not sure it soothed any of our symptoms, but it sure is yummy. 

By the way, the picture above is proof that my toddler did all of the cooking while I was ill. She left her broccoli and knife right on my cutting board! ;)

Not the greatest picture, but sheesh, I was sick! :)
Cinnamon-Honey Warm Milk
Original Recipe
Serving Size = 1
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (or more, or less - to taste)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  1. Heat 1 cup of milk to almost boiling, making sure to watch carefully and stir often. Add the cinnamon stick and then turn off the heat. Leave the milk for about 10 minutes so the cinnamon stick can flavor it.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of honey to a cup. When the milk is done, pour into the glass and stir. Sprinkle with the ground cinnamon.

This sounds delicious!

It was so nice of your daughter to cook for you! :) The other day my 3 yo was cooking in his kitchen and when his dinner was "done cooking" he grabbed my potholders and put them on to take his dish out of the oven.

We have the same knife and broc. Only Little O uses the broc as a baseball and the knife as killing device. I'm so sorry you were so sick. That is THE WORST feeling ever. Rest up my twin! (and no, I ahven't gotten to the sauce book yet.)

Only a pure blogging soul takes a camera to the kitchen with her to retrieve her remedies. I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!

Finally catching up on my blog reading. Warm cinnamon-honey milk sounds so comforting, especially on a cold winter's night.
