I remember two things about St. Patrick's Day from my youth: 1. wearing green to avoid being pinched at school, and 2. Shamrock Shakes. A few weeks ago I said to my boys, "Oooo! It's Shamrock Shake season!" and they looked at me like I had antlers.Read More
In the past week we wrapped up our time in Charlotte, drove all they way back to Minnesota, got (sort of) back into the swing of things at home, avoided laundry and cleaning and celebrated a BIG birthday. Dan surprised me with a VERY nice dinner last night to celebrate said big birthday.Read More
I brought this dessert to Easter dinner and we couldn't collectively decide if it tasted more like the buster bar or the peanut buster parfait. Since gooey, un-frozen fudge is not involved, I decided that "buster bar" best suited its yumminess.Read More
I ran in my first mud race over the weekend! Have any of you ever done one of these? It was so much fun! Aside from running straight up ski hills, that is. Those parts were definitely not fun. The balance beam was my most challenging obstacle. My mind almost got the best of me, but my awesome teammates cheered my wobbly legs to the end without falling off.Read More
My gorgeous and wonderful husband passed his skydiving course this week, so the little boys and I are very proud of him and his efforts! It was a long and grueling week for him. This weekend I plan to take the boys out to our camper at the dropzone for the first time..Read More
When a recipe turns out better than you could have ever imagined you add it to every summer party menu!
This post is a part of a Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with Godiva Coffee. I was honored to be asked to sample this amazing product! When I opened up the box I received in the mail, I instantly began salivating upon reading "Chocolate Truffle" on the packaging. Chocolate Truffle-flavored coffee? Are you kidding?! My mind started swimming as I pondered what I should create. I decided upon a summer-themed drink, as I cherish the summer-time so very much. It turned out to be tastier than I could have imagined. I plan to make this very recipe again soon and serve it as dessert to guests.
Start by purchasing a 12-ounce bag of ground Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee.
The following makes enough for one serving, so adjust according to number of servings.
Brew 4 ounces of coffee and allow it to cool to room temperature. Pour the coffee into a large mug or coffee glass.
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat 2 teaspoons of raspberry preserves, to soften. Mix the softened preserves in with the cooled coffee.
Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream to the mug/glass and top with fresh raspberries.
I have in my hands two $2 off (any 12-oz. bag of Godiva Coffee) coupons to send to the first two interested parties to contact me (use contact button at top of page). Send me your mailing address and I will put them in the mail!
To keep in theme and we all know how much I love coffee. Coffee Cubes are easy to make and they add an extra zing to cold coffee! These go great with Cold Brew!
