Mocha Chia Seed Pudding

Chris hates coffee, but he will take a quick shot of espresso in one gulp to get a boost. I think the fancy new coffee machine by parents got me for my birthday is wearing him down, bit by bit. Soon, I’ll have him sipping a whole cup slowly on Saturday mornings with me.

I thought adding chocolate to coffee would help ease him into it. My math skills failed me yet again though: chocolate + anything = great. Nope, … Read more...

by Chrissy

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie_LYK3

These cookies are soft, fluffy, and have just the perfect amount of banana flavor.
I’m not sure yet if they are more on the chocolate chip cookie gone healthy side, or more of the slice of banana bread gone unhealthy side.

It doesn’t really matter because, regardless, I will eat 5 in one sitting. They are as light and cakey as air, and they seem to vanish by the handful.

Baked in a cakey pillow of coffee cake love and then topped with a crispy spiced brown sugar crumble topping, is whole other story.

Savory Parmesan Crusted Pumpkin Biscuits w/ Spicy Coffee Butter

by Chrissy

This lovely biscuit and butter combo is the result of another Whole Foods, Clash of the Cooks Challenge.  Ingredients for this week’s challenge included the following: Dark roast coffee beans, pumpkin puree, mesquite hot sauce, and Parmesan crisps.

I’d like to say that I’m pretty proud of this work of art. I never thought these ingredients would have paired so well together; but on the contrary, they all joined forces and added some major flavor to your average bread and … Read more...

Bicycle Coffee Float with Nutella Drizzle

by Lauren

IMG_545200

My best bud from high school, Carolina, recently started working for her friend’s amazing little but booming business known as Bicycle Coffee. No exaggeration, this business concept and this coffee are both literally amazing.

The coffee is organic, fair-trade, and only delivered via bicycle in the San Francisco Bay Area. They roast it in a custom built roaster on the sunny side of the bay (Oakland) which I’m pretty sure is what makes it ranks up there with … Read more...
