By now, I’m sure everyone has seen the dalgona coffee craze. It’s a beverage of equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and water whipped into a creamy consistency that’s topped on milk. I’ve made this drink a couple of times and while I personally am not the biggest fan of it (a little too sugary for me), I can’t deny the caffeinated joy the process brings me. Because I love matcha, I decided my next recipe attempt was for matcha dalgona.
Since everyone is making banana bread, I thought: “Let’s make banana muffins instead!” I had a few extra ripe bananas lying around and rather than making the quintessential baked good of quarantine life these days, I decided to bake some banana chocolate chip muffins. Who doesn’t like bananas and chocolate chips together? Absolutely perfect for breakfast or a snack!
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens / Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens / Brown paper packages tied up with strings / These are a few of my favorite things.
While raindrops on roses and bright copper kettles bring a smile to my face too, I also have a few other favorite things. One of these things is something I recently purchased and received – L’Eau Sézane.
Today is Brinkley‘s birthday! He is now 3 years old. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. When we first picked up Brinkley, he was just 9 weeks old and the tiniest little smol bean who could fit in the crook of my arm. Now, he’s a healthy, strong, muscular dog who is a treasured member of our family. Naturally, celebrating his birthday is a must in our household.
Yes, you read that right – these homemade dog treats consist of only three ingredients! During these days of quarantining and social distancing, I know many of you are at home trying several new recipes. Well, why not add this recipe to your repertoire? P.S. this is not only perfect for dogs, but it’s also human-friendly too.
Growing up, I never drank coffee. My parents were not coffee drinkers and the occasional coffee I did drink over the years was a very sugary Starbucks Frappuccino. This continued well into college and even after graduation. It wasn’t until maybe 2012/2013 that I started to explore various types of coffee brewing.
