    Nespresso Creatista Uno Review

    I offer you my no holds barred Nespresso Creatista Uno Review. There’s nothing quite like a warm espresso & perfectly steamed milk. While I love grabbing a latte from my favorite coffee shop, my wallet gets a little light. Finally, I bit the bullet & bought a Nespresso machine with a built-in milk steamer. I am breaking down my full thoughts to help you decide if you want to get one too! Is it worth the money? So far, absolutely! I usually make a double shot latte every morning. The average cost for this is less than $1.50 a cup for the coffee. Factor in the milk & your total…

    Homemade Gingerbread Latte

    Homemade Gingerbread Latte Sarah and I are known gingerbread fanatics – we will make gingerbread anything given the chance.  Whether it be cupcakes, Gingerbread Cider Bundt Cakes or Gingerbread Waffles, if it can be done with gingerbread, we are going for it.  That is why I felt Sarah’s pain when she kept telling me how bad her Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks were. Each one she bought was not turning out right. Then I thought, we can make a Homemade Gingerbread Latte!  How hard can it be?  Not hard at all, and there are a million recipes out there.  I think this Homemade Gingerbread Latte may even be better than what…

    Irish Coffee Recipe

    Irish Coffee Recipe Irish Coffee is one of the classic cocktails.  You hear the term “Irish up the coffee” used very loosely, referring to putting any kind of liquor in coffee, but the real thing is done with Irish Whiskey.  Ireland is known for its cold, rainy weather, so it is no surprise that one of their signature cocktails is warm and cozy.  This Irish Coffee recipe is my take on the classic, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Ingredients The two most important things in Irish Coffee are, of course, coffee and whiskey.  It is extremely important you use high quality versions of both.  The coffee is where…

    Bonavita 8 Cup Thermal Carafe Coffee Brewer Review

    Really Into Coffee To say that we are Really Into coffee in this house is an understatement.  Occasionally we will go to a coffee shop for a latte or other specialty drink, but mostly we are brewing at home.  We, like many others, start off every morning with a hot cup. I take one cup with me to work, but Mark tends to have a couple few cups to get his day started.  He also likes the process of brewing a fresh pot.  Picking out nice beans and grinding them at home is essential to our routine.  Mark has a certain way he measures, packs the coffee grounds into the…

    Starbucks Holiday Blend 2016

    I love a good latte from Starbucks, but I’m not a huge fan of their coffee. Imagine my surprise when I bought a few bags of their 2016 Holiday Blend & found it to be so delicious I bought 6 additional bags online. Now I’m in panic mode because I’m almost out & I don’t know how to recreate it. There are a few Starbucks I frequent when I’m out & about, so when I noticed they are having a 25% sale off ALL coffee this week, I knew this was the time to speak up & find a comparable match for my 2016 Holiday Blend. The manager was Really…
