  1. Mocha Chocolate Chip Donuts Recipe
    • Mocha Chocolate Chip Donuts Photo
    • I realized this week that I haven’t used my donut pan in a while, so I dug it out of the box in the basement. No wonder I do not use it very often… out of sight, out of mind. That’s how the veggies in our refrigerator must feel too. Yeah, I should probably be …
  2. Dairy Free Mocha Frappe Recipe
    • Dairy Free Coconut Mocha Frappe Picture
    • Life as a new mom is one that is full of change. As someone who likes to be on top of things and keep life under control (read: I am a control freak), I am certainly learning to be a bit more adaptable than I used to be. Sure, I may want to run to …
  3. Frappuccino Recipe
    • Cinnamon Mocha Frappuccino Photo
    • When it comes to coffee, I have a confession to make. I may have a slight problem. Ok, perhaps it’s a full-blown addiction. I tend to give more than my fair share of my paycheck right over to Starbucks. I’ve always loved coffee but I never really drank a lot of the specialty, foofy espresso …
  4. Tiramisu Recipe
    • Tiramisu Photo
    • Purists will shudder at this version of tiramisu. No pretty layers, no mascarpone cheese, no heavy whipping cream. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, LOVE traditional tiramisu. It’s a favorite to order out, and the first few times I tried to make a “lighter” version at home, it didn’t work out too well. Too …
  5. Coffee Rubbed Steak Recipe
    • Coffee Rubbed Steak Photo
    • Is there anything better on the grill than a nice juicy steak? I don’t know about you, but steak is right up there at the top of my list for favorite grilling ideas (followed quickly by BBQ split chicken breasts and cedar plank salmon)! I recently picked up some rib-eye steaks at the market, but I wanted to …
  6. Salted Caramel Truffles Recipe
    • Salted Caramel Truffles Photo
    • Here we are, school back in full swing and air turning crisp and cool. Which in my book means one thing: Fall is here!!! Which means another thing: Salted Caramel Mochas. Oh how I love sipping on a hot salted caramel mocha this time of year. Grabbing my favorite sweatshirt and sitting outside with a …
  7. Chai Spice Mix Recipe
    • Chai Spice Mix Photo
    • Move over pumpkin spice! Make room for my other favorite fall spice blend, chai masala. Well, ok, it’s not really a “fall” flavor since people drink it year round. The list of warming spices just reminds me of fall, and once you start putting the mix into dessert recipes, the dessert definitely screams fall. You might already know …
  8. Cardamom Biscotti Recipe
    • Cardamom Biscotti Photo
    • What a glorious week! I thought taco week was spectacular, now a whole week devoted to cookies? Pretty amazing. Cookies are one of my favorite things to make because cookie dough comes together so quickly – which means I’m eating warm cookies, fresh from the oven – in no time. Cookies also rock because they almost always …
  9. Iced Coffee Cocktail Recipe
    • Iced Coffee Cocktail Photo
    • So the funny part about this iced coffee cocktail is… I’m not a coffee drinker. I know, it’s weird right? I never drink coffee in the morning. Or at night. But take some fresh-brewed strong coffee, add Bailey’s, spiced rum and heavy cream? I’m totally in. So… yes. It basically takes a little bit of booze to …
  10. Caramel Macchiato Pretzel Milkshake Recipe
    • Caramel Macchiato Pretzel Milkshake Photo
    • Even when it’s freezing outside, I’m still on board with the ice cream train. I know, totally crazy. I’m also one of those weird people who will still drink iced coffee in the middle of winter. I can’t help it. I have a special love for cold beverages and desserts. If you think about it I’m just super …
  11. Spiced Biscotti with Maple Glaze Recipe
    • Spiced Biscotti with Maple Glaze Photo
    • The perfect cookie for coffee-dunking! This Spiced Biscotti with Maple Glaze is exactly what you need to accompany all your hot beverages this fall. Great for gifting, too! Every time I make biscotti I wonder why I don’t make it more often. Like… biscotti is something I should have in a happy little cookie jar on my …
  12. Espresso Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe
    • Espresso Streusel Coffee Cake Photo
    • The very first thing I do each morning (after hoping it’s not time to get up) is get the coffee brewing. This ritual has been happening for years, and of course for years before I was born. It’s a bit strange how we have taken this bean and turned it into one of the major …
  13. Boozy Irish Cream Chai Latte Recipe
    • Boozy Irish Cream Chai Latte Photo
    • My all-time favorite drink to get while we are out and about is a chai latte with extra whipped cream and lots of cinnamon on top. It just screams winter to me, and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Well, this version literally will make you warm and fuzzy inside! We paired a shot of whiskey and …
  14. Chocolate Coffee Moonshine Recipe
  15. Spiked Mocha Latte Recipe
    • Spiked Mocha Latte Photo
    • There are a few flavors that just help make the holidays for me every year – and dark, decadent coffee with chocolate will always top my holiday happy-hour must haves. I started making themed moonshines (I use an everclear or vodka base, as distilling your own liquor at home is illegal in the U.S.) a while ago as a fun gift …
  16. The Nutty Irishman Cocktail Recipe
    • The Nutty Irishman Cocktail Photo
    • I love St. Patrick’s Day or St. Paddy’s Day (but never St. Patty’s Day!), the annual celebration of all things Irish. Irish or not it’s all about having a great time and I’m absolutely on-board with that. My grandfather on my mom’s side was part Irish so I’m legitimate, but not that I need an excuse; don’t …
  17. Espresso Toffee Fudge Recipe
    • Espresso Toffee Fudge Photo
    • You guys would be so proud of me! I’ve totally cut back on my coffee consumption. You see, I had this horrible addiction. I knew it had peaked when I got a Keurig to go on my nightstand so I could have a cup of coffee in the morning before even leaving my bed. I would brew …
