During the summer when the kids are home, they keep me on my toes all day long. From park trips to the zoo to swimming to let’s do arts and crafts or ‘we should really bake something’…the fun is never ending.  I love every minute of it, but sometimes I find myself nodding off in the afternoons when napping really is not an option (or so I am told!). Fortunately I discovered new Caribou Premium Iced Coffee which has become a delicious afternoon pick-me-up that I look forward to all day long! …

Before I tell you about this Mocha Fudge recipe, I have to tell you about the first Valentine’s Day that Mike and I celebrated together.  I had the day off of work, so I planned to make a special dinner.  Artichoke Crostini, filet mignon with a red wine sauce, salad with homemade vinaigrette and chocolate mousse were on the menu.  I had the entire day to shop, cook and get everything ready.  Easy right?  Well, I should also mention that it happened to be my first time making all of the recipes (except for the vinaigrette, which is an original)….

What is your favorite breakfast?  Are you a cereal person?  Do you like smoothies?  Pancakes?  My usual breakfast rotates between a few different options, however one guarantee each morning is a hot cup of coffee.  There is nothing better than holding that warm mug in your hands, watching the steam rise, and taking that first sip.  Then it occurred to me – why not combine a breakfast staple (coffee) with a breakfast favorite (pancakes) to create Extra Sweet & Creamy Coffee Pancakes, the ultimate breakfast treat!

Whenever I think about my grandma, aside from her baking prowess, two things come to mind.  Wherever we went, we were always together, like joined at the hip together.  I thought she was always following me, and I overheard her say how she thought it was cute how I always followed her.  One thing for certain was how much we both loved coffee!  After dinner, she and I would often enjoy a little cup of decaf together.  I remember one of the last Christmases with her, we were sitting at the table, holding our dainty cups of coffee.  She looked at me and not so subtly whispered ‘you know what we need with coffee?  chocolaaaaaaate!’  It makes me smile just to think about it.  She was so funny and so right on!  The combination of chocolate and coffee is up there with chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and milk (or chocolate and chocolate!)    …
