We have had a wonderful fall here in the UP this year. Ok, so we did have a few days that it was mighty cold and yes we did even have some snow and ice already.... but for the most part we have had a beautiful fall. Gingerbread is one of the spice that make me think of fall and winter and it is perfect in your coffee.

I have to tell you a secret... I don't like the taste of eggnog alone..... BUT... I do like the taste of it in baking and in my coffee. And what could be better for you Christmas morning coffee then a Gingerbread Eggnog Mocha Latte.

As we start looking towards fall and cooler temperatures, I for one start thinking of warm drinks that can warm me up from the inside out. Drinks like coffee, hot chocolate, apple ciders and maybe even one with a little kick that can spice up your life.

I have joined a group of great bloggers that review cookbooks each month. This month we are reviewing Pioneer Woman Cooks- A Year of Holidays. I am sure I am the only person that has never even looked at one of her recipes. Of course I know who she is but I have never really looked at any of her recipes.

Did you know that Macchiato means marked or stained in Italian? I didn't until I looked it up. First I was thinking the mark was chocolate or caramel marking on the top of the frothed milk. Then when I was reading more it is the stained from the espresso or from the steamed milk

I love my Keurig... Well I guess it really isn't mine as I bought it for my husband for his last birthday, but I still love it. It is perfect for us as we don't drink lots of coffee at a time and I really don't like coffee after it has sat in the pot for many hours. Now we can have a perfect cup of coffee right when we want it. The biggest problem with the Keurig is the expense of buy all the coffee pods... But it can be cheaper...

Last week I made a Saint Paddy's Day Milkshake and it was shared on Facebook by Don Tomas Coffee with a comment that it would be good with coffee added. When I saw this I thought mint, chocolate, coffee, oh yum. I had to make this. I had some Mint Chocolate Ice cream in freezer and knew just what I had to make....
Mint Chocolate Coffee Shake
Makes 2 servings
3 cups mint chocolate chip ice cream
3/4 cup strong coffee ( I used Don Tomas Sundown Coffee*)
1/2 cup milk
2-3 drops of green food colouring (optional)
green coloured sugar for the rim (optional)
garnish with fresh mint and Andres Creme De Menthe Thins (optional)
Place ice cream, coffee and milk into blender and blend until smooth. Dip rim of glass in coloured sugar and pour milkshake into glass. Add green food colouring if you would like it to be slightly greener. Garnish with fresh mint and Andres Creme De Menthe Thin. Enjoy!
You can also use the recipe for St. Paddy's Milkshake if you don't have mint chocolate ice cream and add coffee for part of the milk.
* Don Tomas Sundown Coffee has have the caffeine but all the taste of regular coffee.

love buying the new flavours of Hershey Kisses and I usually buy a few bags as you never know when they are going to disappear. Sometime before Christmas I bought a bag or two of Cherry Cordial Hershey Kisses and my plan was to make fudge with at Christmas time... but I ran out of time and there they sat taunting me in the cupboard.
I was thinking of a post to write for on our e- magazine Daily Dish and remember about the Cherry Cordial Kisses. A light bulb came on and I thought they would make a great drink. Perfect for Valentines.
1 cup brewed coffee
Cherry Cordial Mocha
|A perfect blend of coffee and chocolate with a hint of cherry|
2 cups milk
2 heaping tablespoons condensed milk
2 tbsp cocoa
9 Cherry Cordial Hershey Kisses
Place all ingredients in pot and heat over medium heat until steaming but not boiling and kisses are melted. Stir with whisk while heating. Enjoy!
This recipe makes 2 -3 cups depending on the size of cups. Garnish with whipped cream and drizzle with cherry syrup if desired.
This recipe was also posted on the Daily Dish and for more great drink recipes go HERE.
