Help, There are Coffee Grinds in My Mug!

Posted on Thu, Jul 31, 2014

It always makes for a bad day when you reach for your favorite K-cup coffee, brew it up in your Keurig with immense anticipation, take the first heavenly sip and...instead of pure bliss, you taste bitter solids on your tongue. Yep we have all been there once, or twice it is a classic case of coffee grinds in the mug. 

Generally, when brewing with a Keurig this is a caused by grinds or tea clogging the exit needle.  This blocks the water from clearing the area after each brew.  This situation occurs more often with teas, Cafe Escapes and when using the My Kcup but, can happen on occasion with a good old fashioned K-cup.

Luckily, this is a very easy situation to rectify.

Keurig K-cup Review ~ Citrus Splash Iced Tea

Posted on Thu, Jul 24, 2014

I have a confession, my Citrus Splash iced tea Keurig K-cups have been sitting in my cupboard for a very long time as in I may have possibly purchased them last summer. They simply did not call out to me, I don't know why but, I have avoided them until this very 90 degree day.  

Citrus Splash is brought to us by one of the oldest tea companies around - Twinings.  I do very much enjoy Twinings iced K-cups because they are unsweetened and all natural. They contain nothing other than high quality tea and usually a bit of fruit flavor to add a touch of flavor.  My favorites are Mixed Berries and Pomegranate Raspberry

Oh SO Easy Raspberry Vinaigrette Recipe

Posted on Sun, Jul 20, 2014

It is summer salad season, not only so we look good in those bikinis (who am I kidding, I wear an old lady full coverage suit but, still want to look good in it!) but also, who wants to heat up their kitchen making a hot meal in these dog days? Not me, that is for darn sure.  

I have been on a spinach kick, I cant get enough of it- weird, I know.  I absolutely love any and all vinaigrette dressings but, I am especially fond of the raspberry variety.  As always, I was determined to make my own, especially with the newest member of my garden- a beautiful raspberry bush!

Let's get to the recipe...

Coffee Shop Terminology Defined

Posted on Thu, Jul 10, 2014

We are safe and happy inside of our home brewing delicious coffee in our Keurig brewers.  We know how it works, we know our favorites but, someday, we need to go outside of our comfort zones, leave the house, perhaps visit a coffee shop and attempt to place an order.  

I know darn well that I can not be the only one who at one point felt sheer panic while waiting in line at the neighborhood watering hole.  The menu boards are huge, the writing is small, the names don't make sense, sometimes the sizes are in a foreign language...and worst yet, the baristas are incredibly intimidating.

I am here to help.  With a little bit of knowledge, your next visit to the coffee house will be stress free!

Keurig K-cup Recipe ~ Acai Berry Smoothie

Posted on Tue, Jul 08, 2014

I am always on the look out for snacks and treats that pack a powerful health punch but at the same time satisfy my daughters 10 year old taste buds.  If she detects the slightest taste or smell of health, it is a battle to the bitter end to get her do eat or drink said item.  I have found that if I add just a tinch of sweet taste, she falls for it every time.  Bran muffins?  Add a few chocolate chips and they are gone in minutes.  

The same applies to smoothies, if I keep them at least slightly sweet with the addition of a banana and perhaps a little squirt of whipped cream, she is none the wiser ; ) 

This all led to the invention of this weeks recipe...a super easy Acai Berry Smoothie!
