• Black and White Mocha

    I know, I know…I spent most of the past 2 months talking about how much I love my homemade Black and White Mocha and you probably thought I was holding out on you. But as promised, I’m (finally) sharing the recipe with you today! I haven’t always been a coffee lover. In fact, I didn’t start drinking coffee until college and even then I could have been classified as a casual coffee drinker. Want to take a guess at the drink that finally won me over? Yes, it was a seasonal latte and it had chocolate in it…it was a peppermint mocha. It was one of the good ones, not…

  • Cherry Limeade Punch

    I am a firm believer that everyone needs a signature punch recipe. This Cherry Limeade punch has been a favorite of mine for years.     When I’m throwing a party I always need a couple of “easy” recipes on the menu. Recipes that I’ve made multiple times and don’t have fussy ingredients. This punch is perfect for bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, anniversary parties, summertime cookouts…I think you’re getting the idea here. This punch is perfect for parties or just an ordinary day that needs a little something extra special.     Do you remember the Cherry Limeades at Sonic? I lived off of them in my early twenties…

  • Strawberry Lemonade

    The Monday after a weekend of birthday celebrations calls for a recipe that is surprisingly healthy and deliciously refreshing. Yesterday I celebrated my 29th birthday and my hubby spoiled me this weekend with flowers, coffee and a shopping trip on Saturday and then lunch out on Sunday. He really is the best. I also baked and enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake, because when you are a food blogger you bake your own birthday cake. I’ll share recipes and pictures later! Ok, on to the recipe for today. I have always liked strawberries, but this summer I just can’t get enough of them!     Do recipes that only have 4 four ingredients actually…

  • Vanilla Latte at Home

    Vanilla Lattes are my current coffee obsession and since I’ve started making them at home I can avoid the expensive coffee shop and all of the calories that come with it! I don’t usually share photos of all the ingredients for a recipe, so today is your special day. I bought a milk frother a couple months ago and it is amazing! I like to add the sugar and vanilla to the milk before warming it for about 30 seconds in the microwave and then use the frother to transform the milk into warm frothy goodness. The hubby bought me a Keurig for Christmas a couple years ago and I love that…

  • Iced Coffee

    I figured that the morning after daylight savings time is the perfect time to talk about coffee! I love my lattes but in the summer I need something cold and refreshing. While I loved the iced drinks I got at Starbucks, the ones I tried to make at home were always extremely disappointing. Last summer I discovered the world of cold brew coffee and my iced coffee drinking experience has been transformed! At first, I was slightly appalled by grounds sitting in cold water overnight, it doesn’t exactly look appealing, but the end result is definitely worth it. One of the struggles with cold coffee is that when you use sugar to sweeten…

  • Hot Chocolate for One

    When it’s cold outside what’s better than snuggling up under a blanket with a large steaming mug of hot chocolate! Thanks to winter storm Jonas I was snowed in this weekend and had plenty of time to enjoy hot chocolate and work on new recipes for the blog.     I love chocolate. I love chocolate candy, cookies, brownies, cake, mochas…I think you get the picture here. When it’s snowing or any cold winter night, I love a nice mug of hot chocolate! I’m always on the lookout for a great recipe that I can whip up in a couple minutes when the craving strikes. This recipe is just what I was looking for, it has 3…
