Starbucks Double Shot Espresso Over Ice

Tried this earlier in the summer, and it’s been our go-to ever since. My hubby and I love the strong flavour, especially with cream. We drink ours with no syrups, but you can put any flavour you like in it. If you’re into espresso, I highly recommend this drink.

President’s Choice Greek Coconut Yogurt with Milk Chocolate Chips 

Omnomnom!! We bought this on sale this past week, to give it a try and WOW!! I love the combo of coconut and milk chocolate. One of the combos just made for each other. Of course it’s expensive for 4 cups, but can be made cheaper, by buying coconut Greek yogurt and chocolate chips. We already bought a container of Liberte Mediterranee’s coconut Greek yogurt, and just need to grab some mini chocolate chips. This is our new guilty pleasure!! If you like this combo yourself, give it a try…

Tim Hortons Whoopie Pie Donut

A few week’s back, we noticed Timmy’s had 3 types of sandwich-style donuts. So we decided to try the Whoopie Pie one. Sadly, I have to say it wasn’t anything special, with barely any whipped cream. Definitely not worth the extra change they charge for them, which sucks, because they looked good on the shelf…ah well.

Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice

Came across this recipe and thought I’d give it a try. Instead of making it on the stove, I chose to make it in my Crock Pot. It was super simple to make, especially when all you need to do, is throw almost everything in and let it do it’s thing. I let the frozen chicken breasts cook in the salsa verde itself first for about 5hrs. Then, I shredded the chicken and placed it back into the pot. I also added uncooked rice, 2 cups of water, black beans and corn to the pot as well – to cook for almost 2hrs. When I went to check on it later, I saw that it was ready before the timer went off!!

I do like the flavour a lot, but will say the La Costena sauce I used is VERY spicy…woo wee!! So if you can’t handle spice like that, find a milder sauce. Will definitely make this again, but will try a different sauce next time.

Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Mexican Chocolate Cake

This was the first cake I made after having our son, where I actually felt like baking. It was from a box, and as I was emptying the box, I noticed 2 recipes. I took a look and one was called Mexican Chocolate Cake. All I needed to add was 1tsp of cinnamon to the mix. It turned out pretty good with the addition, but then again, we love cinnamon. Will definitely add it again next time. If you love cinnamon too, give it a try and see if you enjoy the taste…

Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino

Apparently it’s back for the summer, but I had never tried it before. So a while ago, I decided to, and it didn’t disappoint!! Tasted pretty close to a s’more, with the blend of chocolate and marshmallow. Will definitely have it again. If you’re a fan of s’mores, I think you may like this Frapp too…

Cheers Everyone!!🙂
