A Spring Coffee Nook + My DIY Vanilla Latte Recipe

Happy Easter weekend! I hope you’re all enjoying some time with your family and friends. One thing that I love to do during a long weekend is indulge in lots of DIY vanilla lattes. They’re my favourite! Recently, I was sent the Breville Barista Express to try, and it’s really upped my latte game. It’s seriously ruined me for any other kinds of coffee (even expensive coffee from the coffee shop!) and it’s made my coffee nook look a lot more “grown up”. Let me give you a (super mini!) tour of my coffee nook this spring and share with you how to make your own DIY vanilla latte with DIY vanilla syrup.Continue reading

How to Make a Maple London Fog (Earl Grey Tea Latte)

Coffee is my best buddy most days. It’s my greatest friend during that nasty afternoon slump when I REALLY want to take a nap, but I can’t because I either have work to do, a house to tidy, and / or some toddlers to play with. Lately however, I’ve found a new drink that rivals my DIY coffee latte: a maple London Fog. OH MY! I’ve always wanted to try making a London Fog (it’s essentially an Earl Grey tea latte), and when I tried adding in some maple syrup it was extremely tasty. The verdict? I’m going to be drinking this every day too! It’s an especially lovely drink for Fall. It’s fragrant and rich. Ready to make your own?Continue reading
