Delicious Iced Coffee Recipe

I love iced coffee, but making it at home can be difficult. How do you make coffee without it being watered down by ice cubes and how do you get it cold enough? After many trials and tribulations, I’ve finally figured out a recipe that I enjoy! It’s a combination of an Italian Iced Coffee recipe I saw a local coffeeshop make and my own ideas!

I usually make coffee with my Keurig. The trick is to pick a strong blend. I LOVE Barista Prima Italian Roast K-Cups. It is a bold, dark, espresso roast that is VERY strong!

While brewing the coffee, I fill up a martini shaker with ice. I then pour the hot coffee right over the ice and start shaking immediately. It makes the coffee ice cold without melting the ice cubes! I then add sugar and milk and stir! It tastes creamy and delightful, and you save money by making it at home!!!!

Do you drink iced coffee? What is your favorite kind?

Almondina Biscuits Review and Giveaway!

Almondina Biscuits are awesome. A thin, crunchy cookie that is totally different from anything I have ever tasted before!

Almondina cookies come from a family recipe that has been handed down through three generations! The way the cookies are made has remained the same, just more flavors have been added throughout the years!

“This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be dipped. It is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.” Each slice is only 30 calories! They make a great snack, and are great in many different recipes! They are also Kosher and Pareve (no dairy)!

I received a sampler pack from Almondina which contained the following flavors:
The Original
Ginger Spice
Pumpkin Spice
Chocolate Cherry

I am not a big nut fan, so I wasn’t expecting much out of these cookies. But they are really great! I especially enjoyed the Choconut! It is chocolaty without being overly rich. It was a great accompaniment to coffee! My husband especially enjoyed The Original and the Sesame. They are crispy, but NOT HARD. Some biscuits can be so hard that you feel like your teeth are going to break. That is NOT the case with Almondina. They are crispy, but don’t fall apart. And even though  you don’t HAVE to dip them, they don’t fall apart when you do!

Almondina cookies are found in many major retailers around the country such as Walmart, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, TJ Maxx and many more! To find a location near you, go here.

Almondina has generously offered to send one lucky reader the same sampler pack listed above! This is PERFECT for the holiday season! If you will be expecting holiday guests, make them feel extra special by serving them a snack that is not only healthy, but delectable!
