How did I live life before iced coffee? Granted, with a young toddler in my life, I sleep less than ever these days (yeah, I totally know that’s the 500th time I’ve mentioned it), so maybe that’s why I can’t imagine a life (and especially a morning) without a frosty glass of the stuff clutched between my desperate hands.More
I can’t help myself. They’re so wonderfully hands-off, especially when it comes to this recipe. Pour all the ingredients in, give ‘em a stir, wait a couple of hours. Then turn your Crock Pot to low and enjoy wonderful hot drink after hot drink all day long if you want. All day! For a heckuva lot less than it costs for the same thing at Starbucks! Yay Crock Pot!More
I’m as much of a Starbucks fiend as the next person.
Okay, more. Maybe a lot more. I’m slightly recovered from my three-a-day habit (I live in Seattle! There were three within close walking distance from my office and I needed the caffeine!), though I must admit the addiction has seen a bit of a resurgence since I’ve recently discovered that, indeed, it is difficult to get much sleep when you have a baby, even when the baby is nearly a year old. This discovery goes hand in hand with how I’ve really discovered the true beauty of the Starbucks drive-thru for new moms … so convenient when you’ve got a sleeping baby strapped in the back (oh now she sleeps).More
My guy and I have recently recommitted to a healthier lifestyle. We’re getting older, we’ve got a daughter now, and it just sort of needs to be done.
We’re eating less processed foods and more whole foods. We go out for walks every evening, and we’re talking about working towards taking part in a 5K come spring. And we’re enjoying indulgences like this Pumpkin Spice Latte Layer Cake.

This is a fairly new blog, but my love for coffee is already solidly documented. I mean, it’s delicious, it’s versatile, and it gives you a good jolt. What more can a long-time caffeine addict (and sleep-deprived new mom) ask for?
Iced coffee is pretty much an obsession of mine. When March rolls around, it’s not spring that’s around the corner. It’s Iced Coffee Season, and I’m a happy bean. Conversely, when autumn closes in, I clutch my glass of iced coffee a bit tighter, not ready to let it go.
This year, I decided to ease myself into the transition to hot coffee and lattes by making Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee. My beloved cold-brewed iced coffee spiked with all the cozy flavors of fall. Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon … perfection.More
