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 […]

332: Toffee Hot Chocolate

332: Toffee Hot Chocolate

I decided to make Toffee Hot Chocolate. I halved the recipe since it was just for me and Alex. I used 1% milk instead of whole milk, so I decided to substitute milk for the water the recipe called for since I didn’t want it […]

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, […]

325: Hot Chocolate (Food Network)

325: Hot Chocolate (Food Network)

It’s cold outside, and since it’s after Thanksgiving, I finally have a Christmas tree in my house. That means there’s nothing better for an evening than to light a candle, make hot cocoa, and sit in front of the tree (while blogging about hot chocolate, […]

312: Hot Cocoa Mix

312: Hot Cocoa Mix

I like making my own hot cocoa mix. I haven’t done the math on it, but I generally assume that it’s less expensive to make my own, given the quantities of it I drink during the year. I also like that I can control what […]

298: Hot Cocoa (Joy of Baking)

Another cold night, another Hot Cocoa recipe. I chose this particular recipe tonight because it was a single serving, and I was only making it for myself. Very simple recipe, really. Heat milk on the stove. Meanwhile, combine sugar, dutched cocoa powder, and cream or […]

290: Alcoholic Hot Chocolate

290: Alcoholic Hot Chocolate

It’s cold! We had our first freeze on Thursday night, and I finally turned on the furnace. However, we keep the thermostat set pretty low, so Friday night was a pretty good time to make hot chocolate. I decided to shake things up a little […]

218: Cucumber Lemonade Chiller

218: Cucumber Lemonade Chiller

With my abundant cucumbers, I decided to try something a little different by making a Cucumber Lemonade Chiller. You puree cucumbers and rosemary and strain off the juice, mixing it with lemon juice, agave syrup, gin, and water to make lemonade. I got some of […]

195: Raspberry Limeade

195: Raspberry Limeade

I decided to make Raspberry Limeade while my friend Karen was here. [Do you see a theme? People visit or I visit people, so I cook!] I was afraid that Alex and I wouldn’t be able to drink the entire recipe by ourselves, so Karen’s […]

166: Latin Limeade

166: Latin Limeade

It was 9pm on June 30, and I needed to make another recipe to make 30 recipes during the month of June. I’d planned on making something else as Recipe #166, but I didn’t have enough of an integral ingredient for it. I wasn’t really […]
