Summer's Best K Cup Flavors in 2 Easy to Make Recipes

Donut Shop Coffee Trifle with Keurig Brew Over Ice #shop #BrewItUp #BrewOverIceWhen my friends say "let's meet up for coffee," what they really mean is "let's meet up at Tammy's house."  You see I've got my very own built in coffee bar in my house, and I'll play 'barista' for anyone who wants to share a cup with me :)  You name it, I have it, and my coffee machine collection includes not just one, but two Keurig brewers.  When I have guests in summer I replace the hot beverage concoctions and brew iced coffee, iced tea and low calories drinks, over ice.  And yes I do that with my Keurig!

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Fiesta + an El Monterey Taquito Giveaway

cinco de mayo partyI've got to tell you prior to last year I had NO idea what Cinco de Mayo was even about.  If you are in the same boat let me quickly recap what I learned:

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the legendary Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, in which a Mexican force of 4500 men faced 6000 French soldiers.  Long story short, the Mexicans won and so they party.

But the more the merrier, right?!  I'm all about celebrating and hosting a party because that equals fun times no matter what the occasion.

Werther's Original® "Baking Bash" ~ Caramel Recipes

I'm still coming to terms with the fact that October is almost over - seriously how did November creep up on us so fast?!  I am glad for the cooler weather though, the HOT Texas summer was a bit more intensive than I had anticipated :)  And with the cooler weather that means that holiday baking is already commencing in my kitchen, and I had the opportunity to make a few things (and share them!) with Werther's Original Baking Caramels.

Pumpkin Caramel Café Latté Recipe - Connecting Over Coffee with Family & Friends

My love affair with coffee didn't quite start out that way.  Actually I started drinking coffee to make a point rather than because I enjoyed the taste.  I was 15 and working at a summer job and one of my duties was to make the coffee for the office staff.  By golly, if I was going to make the stuff, I was going to drink the stuff.  And that's how my obsession started.

Peachy-Keen Smoothies

It's that time of the year.  We aren't ready for summer to end, but we're heading into autumn.  This is a great smoothie recipe that I got from a Family Fun magazine that combines the sweetness of summer peaches with the warm flavors of fall.  The best of both!

Green Tea Mango Energy Smoothie

Mangoes were on sale at the store last week for 48¢, and I had just gotten a package delivered with some Lung Ching Dragonwell green tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf thanks to a Klout perk.  So when I was flipping through my August issue of Woman's Day and saw Joy Bauer's Energy Smoothie recipe, featuring green tea and mango, well I knew I had to make it.

Rockin' the Dairy Aisle for Meals and Snacks

When someone looks inside our grocery cart and sees how many items are in there from the refrigerated dairy case, I'm certain they think I'm shopping for a family of six.  I just really like the different kinds of food products I can find in it to use in my daily meal planning.  Don't just be thinking milk, cheese and eggs, remember there is a lot more to be had in the dairy aisle at the store.  You'll find juice, spreads and easy snack options like cookie dough there too! 

I can’t tell you how much simpler products from the dairy aisle make my life.  We can consume a lot of them just as their packaged, and others are indispensable to have around for recipes.
