Mint Greek Frappé

What a delightful afternoon pick me up! I’ve shaken up my Greek Frappé with mint simple syrup that I had leftover in the fridge from making Mint Juleps. I love the subtle addition of mint here. This tastes like a Starbucks drink for a fraction of the price! It’s so easy to make too. You…

Lavender Dalgona (Whipped) Coffee

I adore lavender coffee. I feel like I’ve sampled every lavender latte Dallas has to offer. I keep homemade lavender sugar in my pantry and it made the most amazing dalgona coffee! What is dalgona coffee? It’s a whipped coffee drink layered over milk with a 1:1:1 ratio (one part coffee, one part sugar, one…

One cinnamon latte coming right up. I’ve been…

Pottery Barn’s City Mugs

I’ve long been a fan of Pottery Barn’s relaxed style and, even during my tightest budget years post college, could always be seen perusing the sale corner and lusting after everything else. I proudly host dinner parties on the Emma dishes, serve drinks out of…

Serving Coffee and Cookies

Sometimes it isn’t about what you make, but how it’s served. I entertained some beloved clients this afternoon (I work in PR when I’m not taking food photos) and wanted to serve coffee and cookies during our meeting. I ended up having to work all weekend and didn’t have time to bake. Luckily I keep…
