Christmas Coffee!

If you are a coffee lover like I am, you probably enjoy seasonal coffee drinks! I love to make my coffee drinks at home, and I have a few drink recipes here on the blog. This recipe is my first Christmas drink! It is so simple and easy, and you add it straight into your ground coffee. I hope you like it!

Here’s how to make it!

  • What you need :
    • ground coffee of your choice
      2 tbsp brown sugar
      2 tsp cinnamon
      1/2 tsp cloves
      whipped cream to top

    Mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cloves together until well combined.

    Add one scoop of your ground coffee into your coffeemaker. I have the Ninja Coffee Bar and I have a reusable filter for it.

    Add only one teaspoon of your mixture straight into the filter with the grounds.

    Brew your coffee as normal! Wait until you SMELL this brewing. So good.

    Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    This smells up the whole house and is Christmas in a cup! It is delicious without being overly sweet.

    I like to double or triple the recipe and keep it next to my coffee machine in an airtight container so that I can just scoop it in.

    I hope you like it!

    EAT | Chicken Tortilla Soup

    There is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a cold day. I have shared my favorite Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe, but today I am sharing my favorite Chicken Tortilla Soup! This soup is so good and has that delicious chicken taco flavor. The best part are the toppings you can add to it! Here’s how to make it.

    What you’ll need:

    • 2 cans of chicken or veggie broth
    • 1 can rotel
    • 1/4 cup lime juice

    First off, combine the liquids together. Broth, rotel, and lime juice.

    Add the seasonings and bring up to a boil.

    Add in the corn and cilantro.

    Add your cooked and shredded chicken.

    Let it simmer for about an hour.

    Now it’s time to serve and garnish. There are so many things you could top this with. Tortilla strips, cheese, sour cream, avocado…

    It is so good. Especially the next day for leftovers!

    Enjoy!

    EAT | Whipped Strawberry & Chocolate Milk

    Have you guys tried that whipped coffee that went viral a few months ago? It is called Dalgona coffee and it is AMAZING. I even made a blog post about it. Something about whipping air into the coffee just makes it tastes so good…AND it also works with strawberry and chocolate milk!

    I can’t be the only mom out here buying 3 gallons of milk a week at the store. Between my husband drinking a glass of milk with his Oreos at night, and my two girls who drink milk twice a day and in their smoothies, I can’t keep milk in the house! Strawberry and chocolate milk are big here. We love the Nesquick powders, and we use them to make our whipped milk!

    Here’s what you need:

    • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 4 tbsp nesquick powder (either flavor)
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 cup ice

    In a small bowl, combine your cream and powder. Use a handheld mixer to whip it into stiff peaks.

    works with chocolate too!

    Pour over a glass of iced milk.

    It is so simple and my girls go crazy for it! The top tastes like melted ice cream, and when you stir it with the milk it is delicious!

    Not to mention, it looks super cool and fancy.

    I hope you guys try it!

    EAT | Red Sauce

    Hello! You guys love pasta right? Pasta is one of my favorite things to eat, and I make pasta dishes all the time for my family. My girls love anything with marinara or “red sauce”, and I have the easiest, most delicious recipe that blows jarred sauce out of the water.

    This sauce uses canned tomatoes, and I find that when you’re making red sauce, you need the canned tomatoes. Using fresh tomatoes also makes a great sauce (like for a pomodoro sauce), but the canned tomatoes give it a thickness that you can’t get from using fresh.

    Here is the recipe!

    What you’ll need:

    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 6 or 7 garlic cloves, finely minced
    • 1 can crushed tomatoes
    • 1 can tomato sauce
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp oregano

    In a large saucepan, heat up your olive oil.

    Add in your garlic cloves, and sauté just until fragrant.

    Pour in your crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce.

    Bring to a boil, and add the salt and oregano.

    I usually add ground beef to this sauce, but it is also very good without.

    I usually put a lid on and simmer this sauce for about 30 min.

    That’s it!

    I use this sauce for lasagna, spaghetti, baked ziti, etc. It goes with any pasta.

    This night I just boiled some elbow macaroni, mixed it up with the sauce, topped it with some mozzarella, and baked it for a quick meal.

    Yum!
