Easy Homemade Vanilla Almond Lattes 1

As of late, I have come to terms with the following regarding myself and coffee:

  1. As an adult, it turns out I actually am a coffee drinker.
  2. I don’t like my coffee super strong and straight-up the way I drank it in law school (basically for rocket fuel); instead, I much prefer a medium roast brewed in a French press with a splash of whole milk or if I’m feeling indulgent, half and half.
  3. And a little flavor can be fun.

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan}

Sweet Potato Spice Latte {Paleo; Vegan} 1

This Sweet Potato Spice Latte recipe uses sweet potato puree instead of pumpkin for a fun twist on a favorite fall drink. Plus, it’s paleo and vegan, adapted from Kathy Hester’s lovely The Easy Vegan Cookbook. If you know me in person you know I’m not really comfortable being in the spotlight. I’m rather shy, actually, at least until I get to know someone. And although I enjoy meeting new people, my happy place really is in the peace and quiet of my own home with the person I love most....

Easy Chocolate-Drizzled Coffee Popcorn with Toasted Almonds

Easy Chocolate-Drizzled Coffee Popcorn with Toasted Almonds Recipe

10 minutes is all it takes to throw together this Easy Chocolate-Drizzled Coffee Popcorn with Toasted Almonds…make it for your next movie night! I know I’m not the only one who goes to the movie theater just for the snacks. (Ok, not all the time…there are some movies that I’m legitimately into, but for the most part I’d rather wait a while and stream the movie from the comfort of my living room where I can watch it in my PJs snuggled up on the couch.)...

Skinny Frozen Pumpkin Spice Mocha

Skinny Frozen Pumpkin Spice Mocha 1

This homemade Skinny Frozen Pumpkin Spice Mocha is a delicious, refreshing way to satisfy a serious pumpkin spice craving. Right about now is when I start craving all things fall; I’m ready for cooler weather and everything that goes with it! But the truth is, it’s still a little early and the weather isn’t quite ready to cooperate yet. (I refuse to drink hot coffee when temps are in the 90’s and it’s humid outside.) That’s where the beauty of a frozen drink comes in....

Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles {Paleo}

Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles 1

These paleo Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles are a great way to satisfy your summer cravings for a sweet treat to cool down with. I’m not even joking when I say I could live off cherries and nothing else during their teasingly short season. (Even despite all those warnings about the collywobbles my mom gave me growing up.) Collywobbles or not, a five pound bag of cherries never lasts long in my fridge....

Frozen Cappuccino

Frozen Cappuccino

What’s your favorite way to cool down on a hot summer day? For years when I was younger, swimming was my cool-off method of choice. While we were growing up, my sister and I were such junkies we took swimming in any form we could get it. We loved heading to the town pool (ick, it’s so gross to think about that now!), wading in the creek behind our backyard (double ick!), and heading to our grandparents’ house because they had a pool....

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate-Espresso Cookies

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate-Espresso Cookies 1

Mike and I have a friend here in Kuwait who doesn’t like to eat. I know what you’re thinking. Wait…what?! Explain please, because I just don’t understand. Yup, it’s true, he doesn’t like to eat, toddler-style. As in, I guess I’ll eat if I have to, but only when I really feel like it, and good luck getting me to try anything new. Sigh. The challenges I have to face, lol....

Butternut Butterscotch Latte

DSC_46452(small)

I’m sure this happens to you too. Every once in a while I think of an idea that is so simple, so right in front of my eyes, it astounds me that I didn’t think of it sooner. Like my Stuffed Mushroom Casserole, which I could talk about for an hour nonstop. But I’ll stay focused. This Butternut Butterscotch Latte is also the perfect example. You could think of it as the cousin to the Pumpkin Spice Latte…but the cool cousin. The one who moved away to the big city and does raw juice diets three times a year and practices yoga every day....
