The fall is such a beautiful time of year in our country… the morning weather begins to get colder as you wait at the bus stops, apple cider everything begins to appear at the grocery store, and beer, football and of course brats become a weekly event. What would we do without bratwurst? The first documented evidence of bratwurst was 1313 in Germany. With the kickoff of Oktoberfest in Germany this week it’s important to celebrate and recognize the impact of German food within our country. Oktoberfest celebrations are held in many American cities across the US and across the world.

I have had many friends tell me what a great experience the “Bourbon Trail” in Kentucky is and also how much fun the Kentucky Bourbon Festival is to attend that is happening this week.

So I figured it was time for me to educate myself on Bourbon 101, so I reached out to David J. Montgomery (aka Professor Cocktail), a writer and critic specializing in books, publishing, spirits, and cocktails, to help educate me on bourbon.

By the end of the summer, as moms we are all ready to get back to school and get on a schedule. The downside of that is all the craziness that follows such as extracurricular activities, school meetings, long practices and homework. That schedule that we appreciate throughout the school day quickly falls apart after school leading up to dinner. The odds of having the entire family eating together or at the same time are rare.
