Today was cool enough to have a hot latte, so I decided to try the Cardamom Latte from Starbucks. It tasted okay and not so sweet with only 1 shot instead of the standard 2 in a grande size. If you like chai tea, you’ll probably enjoy this latte. But if you’re into the sweeter options on the menu, this one may be too tame for you 😉
Saw these at Costco tonight and we thought we’d give them a try. First I’ll say they were pretty good and we enjoyed the taste of the almond butter. It’s nowhere near as sweet as a Reese’s PB Cup, which is nice! Our son even put his stamp of approval on it 🙂 But I must say, I personally like milk chocolate for this particular treat. Which is not to say that I don’t like darker chocolate, because I do! We’ll continue to enjoy these chocolatey goodies for sure though and even buy them again.
It’s still too early and hot for me to even contemplate having the warmer version of the beloved PSL. And I’ve had the frapp version, though good, the taste was too strong for me. Which is why I decided to try the iced latte version and it did. not. disappoint!! SOOO much better then the frapp to me, and I love frapps most of the time. So until the weather gets cooler, I’ll stick to the iced version.
Last month we saw this frapp featured at Starbucks. Since we’re fans of the original Mocha Frappuccino, we thought we’d give this a try and indulge in the triple goodness!! It didn’t disappoint, and we enjoyed it. But I will admit, I was expecting a bit more mocha. Now, if you’re already a fan of the Mocha Frappuccino, you’ll enjoy this one too, and I recommend you give it a try.
Was perusing Pinterest before Easter, and of course it was full of Easter treats recipes. One that stood out to me though, were these coconut macaroon nests. For the one and only reason…simplicity!! With only a few ingredients, it was pretty easy for me to decide to try this recipe out. It was the perfect choice to make while our son was having Daddy time playing. I was able to whip them up quickly and the nests were done before his bed time. Instead of melting white chocolate (we’re not much fans of it any way), I hacked it with cookie icing, to stick the eggs to the nests. Not as pretty, but I think I actually, almost nailed it visually LOL For me the recipe made 24, since it seems I put a bit more of the mixture in each mini cupcake holder 😉 They were yummy, though on the much sweeter side. I may cut the sugar in half the next time I try, since the coconut flakes are already sweetened. All in all, it’s a super cute treat for Easter or for spring in general. Because who really needs a holiday as an excuse to eat – right?! The link for the recipe is below. Give it a try and let me know what you think of it!!
