Spice Up Your Holidays With Coffee

So much cooking and baking goes on around the holidays. I just love this time of the year. While I’m feeling all festive, I also like to fill my coffee mug with some holiday cheer. Here is my favorite recipe.

You will need 1/3 cup ground coffee, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ground cloves, 1/4 cup of orange marmalade and, of course, cold water to put into your coffee maker (I generally make 3 cups).

Mix your ground coffee, cloves and cinnamon together and place them in a coffee filter. Put your orange marmalade straight into the coffee pot. It will melt when the hot brew comes through and will fill your coffee with orange delight-fulness:) Just to make sure your marmalade is blended properly stir your brewed pot before enjoying.

So what are your holiday coffee drink specials? I’d love to know!!

KIND Healthy Snacks Adds Two New Flavors

KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) introduces two new flavors at Starbucks, Apple Cinnamon Nut + Fiber and Blueberry Vanilla & Cashew.

KIND sent me a few of these to try, after reading the label and seeing how healthy they were, I was skeptical.  But after I had one, I was amazed at how good they were.

These healthy bars are all natural, low in sodium, gluten free, wheat free, dairy free and non GMO.  (almost too healthy)

KIND says be kind to your body, which is great, but the taste is good enough that I’d eat it if it wasn’t healthy.  When you open the package you can actually see what type of fruit and nuts you are about to eat.

These two new flavors are only available at Starbucks, but  you can check out some of their other offerings online @ http://www.kindsnacks.com
