Amazon Update

Hi, everyone! First and foremost, if you are in the southeast part of Texas or southern part of Louisiana, please know our prayers are with you. I hope people will help as they feel led.

Additionally, I wanted to update on Amazon. A few weeks ago, a reader purchased an item for an advertised price. Prices may vary at any given moment. However, Amazon allowed the purchase to go through at the posted price. Afterwards, though, the reader received an email stating that a pricing error had been made and they could either 1) pay extra money or 2) cancel the order. I felt this was very deceiving, and I chose at that point to not advertise Amazon, though, my affiliate account is still open with them.

Since that time, the reader has received an email with an apology. I appreciate how Amazon handled the situation. Likely you will still not see many amazon advertisements on here, primarily because I do not want my site to be advertistment filled. I try to carefully choose ads that I think you, as the readers, will find beneficial. Thank you for reading!

My Love For All Things Coconut

With summer winding down, I thought I’d share one of my favorite flavors: coconut. I absolutely LOVE coconut pie (my granny’s was the best); I love pina coladas (virgin ones, too. I don’t even care); I love coconut milk pudding, and I love coconut cappuccinos. So much so that it’s become a running joke between a friend of mine and me. He and I met ironically at the coffee shop, and that first time, he ordered a coconut latte. It was the last of the coconut the shop had. Being the Southern gentleman that he is, he offered me his drink. Being the Southern lady that I am, I declined. However, every time I run into him at the coffee shop, he always makes sure to note that he left some coconut for me.

Now, as you can likely tell, I went to this shop often. Daily, in fact. It was my personal splurge on myself that I always tried to justify. It was, though, an expensive habit. So, for Christmas my husband bought me a Nespresso A+C40-US-TI-NE Inissia Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, Titan (Discontinued Model). (Note: This one is the discontinued model, but I couldn’t quickly find the one he bought…this one is a bit cheaper, though, in price, and is of great quality! The pods work for this model, just like the new model!)

I use Torani Syrup, Coconut, 25.4 Ounce (Pack of 4)

Typically, I use one tablespoon of syrup, as I don’t like my coffe overly sweetened. It’s still perfectly sweet this way, and the milk is perfectly frothed! I always use skim milk for making cappuccinos, as the fat in whole milk can weigh down the foam, causing it to deflate. For cappuccinos, the foam is vital.

What is your favorite coffee drink? I’d love to hear! Thank you for reading!
