Mastering Coffee at Home

Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels If you are like most people, you enjoy a cup of coffee every now and then. In fact, most of us drink at least one cup a day, with some people rising beyond that to three or four. Any more than that might not be a good idea, but up to that point you can be sure that coffee is going to do a lot for you, and there is nothing wrong with having it as a part of your life. If you are something of a foodie and you are interested in different tastes, then you’ll be …

Citrus, rosé, & coffee with Nexium 24HR

Citrus & coffee, oh my! Not with Nexium® 24HR

Irony is karma’s court jester. It’s fate’s whoopee cushion. Irony is landing a dream job as a food photographer & writer and then ending up having horrible heartburn. In particular, a few of my favorite things to consume and work with ignite a heat inside my chest comparable to a pre-game bonfire… citrus and coffee. My two true loves. Sure, I love my husband and daughter, but I cannot live (or do my job) without coffee and citrus. Plus, what would be the point of living? Seriously?! But thanks to a little trick up my sleeve, I no longer have …

Caffeine Fix with Peet’s Espresso

Dunkin’ Donuts, Cold Brew, Coffee

Beat the Heat with Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew

This post was sponsored by The J.M. Smucker Company, all opinions are my own. As warmer weather rolls in, there are a few items that you probably want to retire. The chunky knit sweater should be nowhere in sight. That amazing potato soup recipe you perfected over the holiday season? Put it away! Oh, and you know that weather app you’ve been glued to this winter? Shut it down, because thanks to the summer season I can already give you the forecast for the next 4 months: It’s going to be hot with a side of sticky. But if you …

Coffee Cozy with Craftables

Cozy. Adjective: giving a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation. It is the ultimate stressless state one can achieve. For me, ‘cozy’ is my softest, baggiest sweater and a hot cup of coffee. I relish in the moments that I can sit down in a quiet, sun-filled nook of my house and sip on my coffee in peace. As a working mom with a toddler, these junctures are few and far between. But every once in a while, the stars align, I happen to be wearing my coziest sweater and I get a quiet moment of caffeinated bliss. Lately, I’ve been …
