Make This Now! Soft Chewy Ginger Spice Cookies

Shortly after I started annelovescoffeemore about a year ago, I wrote a post about the break-and-bake ginger cookie dough that Trader Joe’s sells in November and December. I love those cookies (“Yes, every night.”) They are so easy, and they taste great. But, most importantly, they are ready to be baked whenever you need or want. The problem is, then, that these cookies are a seasonal item. TJ’s only carries them for two months of the year, so what are we supposed to do the other 10 months? Hmmmm?

This is the answer: Learn to make…

Unsweetened Dark Chocolate Bark with Raw Nuts and Dried Figs

Those of you who saw last week’s post about Challah now know that I have a special fondness for food items with a sweet flavor profile. I believe this love of sweet things is one of the reasons Halloween is my favorite holiday. I mean, sure, dressing up in a costume can be creative (not looking at you 2-holes-in-sheet ghost) and “fun” but, really, it seems logical that part of the enjoyment is a result of the sugar-high that results from eating 12 trial-size Snickers in a 5-minute span. Plus there is… Click…

This Summer Make the Most Delicious Nectarine Tart You Will Ever Eat

One of the best things about summer is summer fruit, specifically nectarines and peaches! I love them! They are so good, and they are only good in the summer. This is why I do not ever – ever ever – pass up the opportunity to make nectarine and peach tarts during the summer. They are delicious no matter what, but – for me – having peach or nectarine tart for breakfast with coffee in the morning is nothing short of heaven. It is really one of life’s simple pleasures.

So now that nectarines and peaches are officially in season, I decided to make…

Trending: Sparkling Coffee – Crazy Good or Just Crazy?

Hello buddies! Summer! It’s here! And that means… it’s time to start thinking of all the ways we can drink our coffee cold. Yay! Today I’m going to tell you about two fizzy options, but first I want to tell you about all the old cold coffee methods and how much I love them or hate them. I will be rating them with school grades in honor of my friend Dawn, who has been known to say “This is a terrible plan. I give this plan an F.” continue reading…

Raw Cocoa Beans! It’s like if a chocolate-flavored almond and a coffee bean had a baby.

Hi! I sit here typing up this blog in a highly energetic state thanks, I believe, to the delicious handful of raw cocoa seeds I just ate. Fun fact, the stimulant activity of chocolate is due to cocoa’s theobromine content. If you happen to ever get a trivia question asking what stimulant is in chocolate and you get the answer right, I would appreciate it if you would please send me a dollar. Anyways. A couple of months ago, I was checking out some of the less “gentrified” food stalls at the Grand Central Market (#dtla…
