My Morning Coffee

Like most American, I like to start my day with coffee to feed my coffee addiction . As of late I have really been enjoying make my drinks at home rather than running through my local Starbuck . As much as I love Starbucks, sometimes I enjoy being able to control what goes in and how much of it is in the drink. So for todays post I thought that I would share how I make my morning coffee.

With any good cup of coffee it comes down to what beans you use and how strong you like it. I go in between the kinds of roast that I like, lately I have been enjoying the Italian dark roast which I pick up at my local grocery store. Some people prefer certain brands over the roast but I do find that I like the roast over the brand.

To make my morning coffee you will need:

1 tablespoon of simple syrup

2 to 3 shots of espresso

One cup of ice

1/2 a cup of milk

Drizzle of caramel sauce

Put the simple syrup in the bottom of your cup. Add your espresso and mix it together. Add the ice and milk. Top off with the caramel drizzle. Then enjoy!!!

Now with any recipe you can always add ,substitute, or take out what doesn’t work for you.Somedays I prefer more ice and less milk , it really just depends on the day. I hope you enjoyed this little post about my morning coffee and what gets me going in the morning. If you make this recipe please share if you liked or if you made any changes to it.

Much Love

Tomorrow I turn 26 years old and it really got me thinking about what I have done in my life so far and what I want to do with my life in the future. I put together a list of things that I want to achieve before I turn 30 years old.

I want to take these next five years to say yes to as many possibilities that I can. For the last 2 year, I have kinda shut myself off from the world and have been in this weird funk.

Do you have anything that you want to achieve before your next big birthday?

Homemade Pizza

Pizza is by far one of my favorite meals that I like to eat, it’s so simple yet so delicious. Now, that I have been getting into making more of my dinners at home to save money. I started to play around with making pizza at home. I quickly learn that it is super easy and can turn out to be ultra delicious. Another reason why I love making pizza at home now is because I can make it any way I like. If I want to make it healthier I can but if I want to have a junk food day I can by making the pizza not so healthy. This the best of both worlds because I am not spending a lot of money on pizza and I can also be a little healthier too.

What You Need:

3 1/2 Cups of Flour

1 Packet of Yeast

1 Cup of Warm Water

1 Teaspoon of Sugar

Any topping that you may want

How to Make it:

Heat the cup of water to 120-125F. Stir in the teaspoon of sugar and yeast into the warm water. Let the yeast sit for about a minutes. In a large bowl mix the flour and yeast until it forms a ball. Place the ball of dough into a clean bowl. Cover the dough and let rise for 30-40 minutes. Cut dough into about 4 or 5 smaller dough balls. Let the dough rise for another 10 minutes.After they rise roll out the dough. Place topping on and bake for 15 minutes in an oven set at 425F. Lets cool for 5 minutes and enjoy.

Much love,
