Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Be Your Own Barista!

MoneySavingMom found a great little free download of book with Starbucks coffee recipes. Those of you that know me well, know that I love to sweeten my decaf coffee (if I drink caffeinated coffee I start shaking after one little cup!) with peppermint syrup and lots of 2% milk to make my own version of starbuck's peppermint lattes. Now I can experiment with more recipes from their book, like double chocolate creme frappuccinos, gingerbread lattes, caramel macchiato, or caramel apple cider.

And if you don't like coffee, you can always look at their recipes for pastries and desserts! Almond Biscotti, chocolate fudge squares with mocha glaze, and scottish oat scones are just a few of the recipes they printed for readers.

When you click on the Starbucks link, scroll down to the brown box and click on the icon of the Starbucks paper booklet. That's the recipe book.

What a treat!
