Homemade Starbucks Caramel Brulée Latte

As far as copycat recipes go, this one is pretty darn close to what you get at Starbucks. Though the mix can't be made in advance (unlike the Gingerbread Latte or Pumpkin Latte) it only takes a few minutes to put together.

Homemade Starbucks Gingerbread Latte

Every winter there are two drinks I look forward to at Starbucks: the Gingerbread Latte and the Caramel Brûlée Latte. But lets face it, there's no way I'm bundling a toddler into the car in 3F weather just so I can drink my favorite coffee. The solution? Homemade!

Hot Spiced Tea and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Similar to chai, this hot spiced tea is made with black tea,1/2 a cinnamon stick, whole cloves, peppercorns and a touch of vanilla. After sweetening with honey, I love cupping a warm mug in my hands and sipping on this fragrant drink. Serving it with fresh chocolate chip cookies...

Strawberry Sangria and Quick Garlic-Spinach Pasta

This easy Strawberry Sangria is made with diced strawberries, Sprite and good wine. Serve with a simple spinach pasta dish and enjoy during nap time for maximum benefit.

Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate (For Grown Ups)

It's starting to feel like winter here in Vermont. My weather app says it feels like -3F outside and there's a howling wind rapping on the windows. Brrr! Is there any better time for Grand Marnier spiked hot chocolate?

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Flavored with fresh nutmeg, ground cloves and brown sugar, I used to drink homemade pumpkin-spice lattes while reading a book or dawdling at the computer. Nowadays, I pour one in a hot cup and drink it one-handed while putting train tracks together. :)

Honey-Vanilla Latte with Maple Whipped Cream + Blueberry Buckle

Coffee drinks with a little something extra are just the thing for lazy Sunday mornings. Today honey-vanilla lattes, served with slices of my husband's blueberry buckle and jazz music playing in the background.

The yummy meal pictured here takes about 30 minutes to make, start to finish. 25 minutes once you've done it a few times and have it down pat.

For My Fellow Coffee Lovers, Tiramisu

Tiramisu is an elegant dessert that's ridiculously easy to make - especially if you use pre-made savoiardi (also called ladyfingers) from your local bakery or market.
