     I am a coffee lover. If you’ve read my blog for a while or followed me on social media, it’s pretty obvious. I even met the Major while I was working in a local coffee shop. I’m forever amazed at how many of my friends are intimidated by the different choices and selections and flavors and names out there for coffee drinks. It turns out, y’all love my coffee recipes. I think demystifying them helps.

    Today I’m sharing how to make a classic dark mocha combined with another classic - the white mocha. I could drink both on their own. But there is something so alluring about having them together. It just feels decadent. These are my go to drinks when I’m going thrift shopping on a fall weekend with my friends. Want to talk about being a crowd favorite! Let me show you how easy it is to impress with such a luscious drink.

DIY Laundry room table
     We’ve had front loaders for over 10 years now. In fact, this year we bought our second set. I’m not a pedestal person, mainly because I need all the storage on top I can get. It’s just that this set up left me with one issue. Things were always falling in between, behind, and beside the washer or the dryer. We also have a good 10 inches where the washer and dryer are not against the wall. I needed a way to recoup that missing storage space. I’m not the first person in the world with this issue or idea, and Pinterest will show you a million ways of building pedestals, folding tables, and all kinds of storage for the laundry room. I was able to build this table specifically for the laundry room in under $100 in building material. I’m excited to share with you my laundry room progress, but I wanted to assure you that one thing is staying the same. Long time readers know I’m a fan of all® free Clear detergent. I’ve even joined the all® free clear community (You can join too!). My room is getting a makeover, but my detergent is not!

Your Game Day Appetizers Have Never Been So EASY!!!!!

Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites

     It’s full on Football season in Texas my friends. You know how I know? Traffic. Horrendous game day traffic. On most college football weekends, you will find us sheltering in our own homes. Surrounded by our friends, we rest easy knowing we aren’t out their battling for a parking spot, or trying to figure out which lane is feeding into the stadium. Instead, we are snacking and talking with our friends and neighbors while the game is on tv. Keeping our stress levels down isn’t just about avoiding the traffic. For me it’s about finding effortless menu items to please our guests.
      This crock pot buffalo chicken dip was the answer for our latest viewing party. The hot buffalo sauce reminds us of the popular wing restaurants without the crowd, and utilizing the slow cooker makes life so much easier for me. The buffalo chicken dip is versatile. Serve it on buns for sandwiches, or take it up a notch and serve it on a TRISCUIT cracker with a dollop of homemade blue cheese dressing. The dip can be served individually as pictured, or in a dipping bowl surrounded by a big bowl of TRISCUIT crackers. The choice is yours. Whatever is easiest my friend!

Maple Snickerdoodle Cupcakes With Homemade Maple Frosting

Just in time for Autumn entertaining!



Autumn snickerdoodle cupcakes with cinnamon maple frosting


   You loved last week's post about how to make a perfect latte macchiato so much. It turns out that not only was it helpful but that you were into the fabulous fall flavoring as well. It appears that Maple Cinnamon Vanilla Cupcake is the new desired fall flavor (take that pumpkin spice!!!).
     I’m forever wowed by the shares, comments and love I’ve had for that post on social media. One thing stood out for sure. You all wanted to know about the cupcake I was eating with it! The inspiration that started if all. So today I’m sharing the recipe! My kiddos have promptly changed the name of it to the “Maple Snickerdoodle Cupcake”, because it tastes like a snickerdoodle, with a maple twist!

     Actually they call them Maple Stinky Poodle cupcakes. Am I the only one who has kids that call snickerdoodles stinky poodles?
