When Winter season comes along what is the first thing you think of? I’m willing to bet most people think of the big holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. However, the cold weather that Winter season brings along is something that should also be included. It may not be cold in every single part of the world, but in those parts that are cold, it’s hard to stay warm. Who said warm clothes are the only things to keep your body warm? Here are 5 beverages perfect to help warm that body up! More »

According to good ‘ol wiki (because I could not have put it any better myself),
“Latte art is a style of pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso that creates a pattern or design on the surface of the resulting latte. It can also be created or embellished by simply “drawing” in the top layer of foam. Latte art is particularly difficult to create consistently, due to the demanding conditions required of both the espresso shot and milk. This, in turn, is limited by the experience of the barista and quality of the espresso machine. The pour itself, then, becomes the last challenge for the latte artist.” More »

I lied, there’s no such song. But there is indeed a love triangle that exists between coffee, milk and sugar. It says so on the packaging. More »
I never ever thought I’d blog about Martha Stewart but here I am doing just that: take a look at her Cutest Cupcake Contest Winners. Some of these are SO cute, beautiful, or ornate that I don’t think it’s right that they’re supposed to be eaten.
I have a number of favorites but the sushi-imitation ones take the cake (harhar pun intended). Can you believe those things are really cupcakes?? I’m trying to imagine popping one in my mouth and instead of soy sauced seaweed, fish, and rice you get an explosion of coconut, sprinkles, gummies, and fruit-by-the-foot. Crazy taste bud mind games. But very practical when you think about it… you don’t even have to use your hands to eat cupcakes because they go better with chopsticks! More »
