Yummy Coffee

So I decided to stray from the usual post topic of crochet and share a fantastic recipe. The Love Chef was on television a couple of days ago, and shared his recipe for something that hits me in my favorites: coffee and chocolate. So here it is:

2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ cup amaretto liqueur
5 tablespoons espresso roast coffee
4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
4 cups water
Fresh lightly whipped cream

Serves 4

Mix the sugar and amaretto in the empty carafe of an automatic drip coffee maker, then brew the coffee in the usual way using the 5 tablespoons of espresso, 4 teaspoons of cocoa, and 4 cups of water.

Fill 4 glass coffee mugs and float a little whipped cream on top of each.

The picture is before the cream is added, but doesn't it look like a delicious way to start the day ? I plan on trying it very soon. Enjoy!

Groundhog Day

We have been getting bombarded by snow, and today on groundhog day it's ice rain. Good old Puxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, so we supposedly will have an early spring. On all these days trapped in the house, I have been eating my fair share of Dunkin' Donuts creme delite, heart shaped doughnuts. They are my absolute favorite, but sorta like manna of the ancient Israelites: if you are greedy and gather more than you can eat in one day (like I did once when I bought two thinking I could save one for the next day), they are completely unedible. No, they don't putrify or get wormy, but they get rock hard and taste like greasy concrete. Including the wonderful cream center. One bad bite and I was convinced to quit my habit, at least for the time being. But I do still enjoy the coffee daily, and was inspired to make this cute earflap hat for my daughter,
(who was really sleepy when I took the pic.) based on the colors of good ol' Dunkin Donuts.
