For the Love of Coffee

     I know what you're all thinking, "Another girl posting about her coffee." And you would be correct! In fact, it is very likely that there will be quite a few coffee posts because it is one of those things I can truly say I love, love, love

     Plus, look at how adorable my "T" mug is. I mean, come on.

     I have to admit that I am indeed a coffee snob. Not so much that I won't drink a cup of bad coffee necessarily, but oh will I complain and make faces and chug it down as fast as possible. This was one of the occasions, where I was about done with bad coffee. My gaze happened to land on the Christmas tree and all those lovely candy canes gently nestled in the branches. An idea struck me. I would put a candy cane in my awful, bad cup-o-mud. But then the wheels kept turning. I remembered the big Christmas tupperware container full of delicious chocolate chips. In plopped a handful of the tiny morsels. Fueled by the need of something tasty, I opened the fridge and spied the whole milk and a can of whipped cream (clearly I was not going for "healthy" here). And thus, my lovely and delicious peppermint mocha was born! Not that this was an original idea, but hey. I made due with what I had lying around.

    What are some coffee creations you've come up with? Would you make it again?



  1. Ooo, good idea! I'll have to try that. Haven't come up with any of my own coffee creations, but pinned something a while back about "how to add new flavors to your iced coffee" or something, so I bet I can adapt those ideas for warmer weather too. :)

    And your mug is adorable!! (As are you, with your cute little sweater and boots. ;) ) The first "fancy" mug I've ever owned is the one you got me at the Book Signing, and I treasure it! :)

    1. My mother-in-law bought me a coffee book I wanted for Christmas and it got here yesterday. I can't wait to check it out!

      I'm so glad you like your mug! I have to admit I have a horrible coffee mug addiction and am tempted by them where ever I go!
