Monday, Coffee, and a Cookbook

I hope everyone celebrated National Coffee Day yesterday! I stopped by Starbucks and picked up a complimentary cup of their new Ethiopia Coffee (My HB is excited about this)! Starbucks coffee development manager describes it as being, “medium-bodied with soft, velvety notes of dark chocolate, subtle hints of peppery spice, and sweet, mandarin-like citrus for a balanced and approachable taste in the cup.” All I know is…it was Mmmmm good! To add a little Autumn flare, I got a shot of pumpkin spice.

I recently stocked up on some new K-cups when Publix had their BOGO sale. You can never have enough K-Cups! Green Mountain Coffee’s French Vanilla Iced Coffee and Wild Mountain Blueberry are the two I decided on.  I wanted to try something different. I’ve always been a fan of iced coffee, but I usually drink frappuccinos. I’m really excited to try the wild mountain blueberry flavor. Green Mountain Coffee tasting notes described it as, “A celebration of summer, with its sweet flavor of juicy sun-kissed blueberries baked to perfection in a buttery crust.” So there you have it! I know it’s Fall, but we can all use a little summer berry in our lives! And–thanks to a Twitter contest Tw’hosted by Keurig, I won a Cooking With Coffee Cookbook! This time of year I make more baked goods and new recipes, so I can’t wait to delve in and tell you all about them!
