Two Bite Tuesday ~ Hot and Cold

Hot first :-) I just love this first bite. I'm a self admitted coffee fiend. I think about my first cup of coffee before I even open my eyes in the morning. Morning coffee is a ritual for me and it is not a good day when I run out.

1st Bite ~ This was actually a Christmas gift from my stepson Christopher. Having lived with us as a teenager, he knows my love of all things, coffee.

My Saturday evening Bailey's & Coffee :-)
I love that you can make one cup of over 200 varieties of coffees and teas. Saturday evening, I made a quick Bailey's and coffee, with my Keurig and, of course, fresh homemade whipped cream. DELICIOUS :-) Thanks Chris.

This next bite comes because I could not find Macadamia Nut ice cream anywhere local. When Rick and I were in La Jolla for our 5th Anniversary we had lunch at the Crab Catcher and enjoyed the most delcious lobster pasta. Then for dessert we shared their Paradise Pie (macadamia nut ice cream pie, chocolate cookie crust, topped with warm chocolate sauce, whipped cream and chopped macadamia nuts.) It was one of those meals to remember and attempt to duplicate.

2nd Bite ~ In an attempt to duplicate our 5th anniversary dessert, and not being able to find the ice cream, I decided I would make it. So, I found this sweet little one quart electric ice cream freezer by Sunbeam...and a recipe for homemade macadamia nut ice cream. :-)

Fresh homemade ice cream
Of course, I'm going to be trying out my mini cheesecake pan to see how I can make twelve decadent little perfect desserts. Ohhhh, I think that will be pretty :-)

Ohhhh...I almost forgot. After I bought this sweet little machine, I found out that I can get Macadamia Nut Ice Cream from the Häagen Dazs Store at Arizona Mills Mall! It's good to know that I could still buy it :-) Better late than never :-) ~Blessings, Janet


  1. Baileys and coffee sounds superb!

  2. MMMMM Bailey's and Coffee. that used to be my Ally McBeal ritual. I think it was on Sunday or Monday night and I always sat with a hot cup and enjoyed the show. That was where I fell in love with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Bon Jovi. AWWW sweet Bailey's and Coffee memories!!!

  3. Hi Janet,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today via FMBT. I'm really happy you came by and thanks for the lovely comment.

    I am following back to both your great blogs. On Mondays I host a Motivational Monday Blog Hop that might interest you.

    By the way I have to have my coffee first thing in the morning too. I love my coffee, the one thing I will never give up. My hubby loves Bailey in his, but I don't, I find it too sweet, I don't like my coffee sweet.

    Take care and make everyday a great day!
