Lattes and Caramel

My Dad is a coffee fanatic.

I enjoy a good cup of joe too, but one cup a day is fine for me. I drink coffee like a dessert - for the sweetness and creaminess, not for the rush. Brian usually makes me a nice cup every morning, and even though he doesn't drink coffee himself - he knows how to make it just how I like it.

And I like it even better with a sweet pastry.

I love the simple things in life...

You're right, coffee is like a dessert drink, and no coffee is more dessert-like than a latte~ In fact, I just got back from my weekend Starbucks walk (not uphill).
You're such a creative baker :)

Everything you post looks so delicious. I don't like coffee, but I want to drink that mug of it! Haha.

You had me at caramel dumplings. Can I marry those dumplings? Oh wait...that would be tragic and a little sick, since I'd eat them. Gobble them all up. Yum.

Mmmmm those caramel dumplings look delicious! I'm a huge coffee lover too, although I agree, I can't have too many cups. Usually one a day.

That mocha made me drool! Caffeine really ends up messing with my system, unfortunately, and even de-caf still has plenty of caffeine in it, so I've learned to become a connoisseur of hot chocolate :)

Lovely yummy treats!

I found this cute video of a new cookbook for newlyweds and thought about your blog.

I hope it inspires you for a blog post, maybe for Valentine's Day. Enjoy it!

Oh, those dumplings look delicious! I'm not a coffee drinker myself but I love the smell.

Notes from Holly St. said...

i couldn't agree more...coffee should be enjoyed slowly, savoring every sip. it really is about the simple pleasures...
