Chocolate Espresso Tiramisu

Chocolate Espresso Tiramisu

My friend Molly and I got along superbly as roommates, perhaps in part because we both loved food and enjoyed cooking. We still do. It’s no wonder that we’d cook at least once during my visit. Molly mentioned that she had made a Chocolate Espresso […]

Espresso Granita

Espresso Granita

After a cool spring, and a relatively mild June so far, St. Louis reached the mid-90s this week, and it’s warm again this weekend. It’s definitely summer now, and this heat is exactly the kind of weather that calls for a granita. I made Espresso […]

Espresso Biscotti

Espresso Biscotti

I’ve heard biscotti are a great food to give as gift. I’ve never given them myself, but I loved receiving them once. Making biscotti as a food gift was likely what I had in my mind when I bookmarked the recipe for Espresso Biscotti, but […]

Espresso-Chocolate Chip Shortbread

Espresso-Chocolate Chip Shortbread

While Alex was out of town, I decided to finally make Espresso-Chocolate Chip Shortbread. I feel guilty whenever I make something that I know Alex won’t like, because he can’t share in my excitement and enjoyment. When he’s out of town, this guilt is alleviated […]

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Today I was tired after lunch and needed to have a Diet Dr Pepper this afternoon. This reminds me that I haven’t told you about the black bean soup that I made with coffee that helped keep me wide-eyed and alert in the afternoons. I […]

Frozen Mochaccino

Frozen Mochaccino

Eating Well magazine has a coffee section this month. I like coffee, so of course I was a little excited about this. I made a Smoky Black Bean Soup which took coffee (and which I’ll post about in a little soon – but I’d like […]

330: Mocha Hot Cocoa (BHG)

330: Mocha Hot Cocoa (BHG)

I decided to make the Mocha Hot Cocoa recipe from Better Homes and Gardens, but I originally left the coffee out of it so that Alex could enjoy it. I also planned on sending individual packets of homemade cocoa mix to my family for Christmas, […]

103: Espresso Brownies

103: Espresso Brownies

I find it very fitting that my Espresso Brownies are the final recipe that I made in April – another milestone recipe! My husband doesn’t like coffee, so I knew that I would need company to help me eat these. We had a friend come […]
