It’s Funday Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Does it possibly involve a trip to your favorite coffee shop? I caved on Monday and had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the week. Goodness, did I miss that taste.

The temperatures drastically dropped this week, we’re talking mid forties early in the morning and a couple of chilly nights already. Apparently, it’s supposed to be back to the 70’s land next week, which I’m keeping my fingers crossed for. You never know with our MN weather. But I will say that that pumpkin spice latte tasted pretty amazing on a cooler day.

The only thing I didn’t like was the price tag. Paying more than $5 dollars for a cup of coffee is something I rarely do. Anything for a PSL though ;). I still kept wondering if I could achieve the same taste at home.

Who knew the only thing I was missing is Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup. [Read more…]

Salted Caramel Sauce

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce is so easy to make. Let me show you how!

I really have been wanting to take some time to tell you all about how to make this wonderful caramel sauce. I’ve been making it for what it seems like forever now and honestly feel bad that I haven’t shared it with you sooner. I remember how intimidated I used to be at the thought of the whole process and how much easier it seemed to melt the packaged caramels. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but by the time you’ve unwrapped all the individual squares, you could have made your very own sauce from scratch. It’s that easy.

The taste of homemade caramel sauce is so much more intense. Buttery, sweet, and uh, so caramelly with a subtle hint of sea salt (which you could totally leave out if you’re not a fan). I can’t say enough good things about this. It’s fantastic and I would love for you to make it – just so I’m not the only one eating this by the spoonfuls :). [Read more…]

Homemade Nutella

A simple recipe is here to sweeten Monday mornings. Do you love Nutella? It goes without saying that I do. Eating chocolate for breakfast? I mean, it really doesn’t get any better than that, does it? The addition of hazelnuts gives the spread a wonderfully nutty flavor; adding a whole new dimension to the silky, smooth taste. If you have never tried it, please go ahead and give it a go. For those of you that know all about the lusciousness in a jar – rejoice. This homemade version is just as tasty as the store-bought kind and is ready to enjoy in no time. [Read more…]
