Every now and then I simply need a good cappuccino. Nothing makes me feel more sophisticated or my coffee cravings more satisfied. Cappuccino's offer a lovely blend of frothed milk generally combined with traditional espresso. I prefer mine in a large ceramic mug, made by a professional barista, sitting on a cobblestone street. Since that occurs basically never, I settle for the second best thing...Keurig Coffeehouse Cappuccino made in the comfort of my own home.

It is that time of year again, time for sniffling and sneezing, coughing and body aches...cold season is upon us. I am already feeling the effects of the drastic weather changes in my area, luckily I have not had a full blown cold yet but, I am sure it is coming. As I am not one to readily take any sort of medicine, I am prepared to turn to my favorite remedy...hot tea. Don't get me , I know that hot tea is not going to "cure" a cold but, it will certainly pacify the symptoms and when it comes to a minor bout that is all I am looking for.
Eight days ago my family and I decided to take a leisurely stroll through a lakeside town we frequent often and we nearly died from heat exhaustion. The humidity was so high that we felt as if we were wading through honey. Exactly seven days ago we made the same trek and were exhilarated by the slight crispness in the air. Fall had arrived in a mere 24 hours. Although it has not quite settled in for good, summer is still battling for its rightful place with a hot day here and there. But, we all know the outcome...soon the leaves will be turning brilliant reds, oranges and golds. The mornings will wake us with a pleasantly cool greeting. I get to wear my favorite tall boots and cozy sweaters and most of all enjoy the traditional comfort flavors of fall food and drinks. You know the ones...apple, caramel, pumpkin and spice. From muffins to cookies, cakes to donuts, our senses will be overloaded with the smells and tastes of autumn. Our Kcup coffee is by far not an exception.
As much as I love summer, I find myself dreaming of crisp mornings, cozy sweaters and the wonderful tastes and aromas of fall. Maybe it was the insanely hot August we experienced in the Northeast or maybe it has simply been too long since I cuddled up in my favorite fleece blanket and sipped a delicious apple cider. Either way, the time has come and I am ready!

Latte's and other specialty coffee drinks are one of my very, very favorite things in life, second only to ice cream! Until now, I fueled my fix with Starbucks or preferably homemade versions of their recipes. Although both are great, there is a new and improved Keurig alternative. Green Mountain has finally released their two step Coffeehouse line of Kcup treats including: Salted Caramel Macchiato, Vanilla Latte and Cappuccino.
