Happy New Year and Happy New Blog! Welcome to Sweet Lucy's Culinary Creations.
I thought I would kick off this blog the same way I do each morning - with a cup of iced jo. You know what I mean - jo, joe, java, coffee . . . .sweet, delicious, kickstartmyheart, coffee.
Morning Iced Latte
1.5 Cups Cold Milk
3 Teaspoons Instant Espresso
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Sugar
First, gather up your delicious friends (ingredients) as well as grab your favorite glass. Please note: this is my favorite glass.
Next, add the instant espresso. This stuff is phenomenal Really. I cannot lie. I love, love, love instant espresso. It's getting much easier to find in grocery stores too. Formerly, it was a quite the specialty item. It's very versatile and can boost any chocolate recipe too. But I digress. . ..
And then the Vanilla. I use the cheap stuff, I cannot lie. I have no problem with the cheapo stuff for my daily coffee. Save the expensive/high quality Vanilla for your yummy baked goods.
Oops . . .almost forgot our friend White Granulated Sugar.
Stir it all up . . .I know it doesn't look like much, but I promise you it will be divine in just a few short moments. Just hang with me.
Pour in your cold milk. I prefer skim. For a treat, I use 2%. Most days though, I use skim milk. And don't forget to spill a little. Never trust a skinny cook OR somebody with an impeccably clean kitchen.
Stir it all together with your favorite spoon. Did I mention I have a favorite spoon? It's very well loved (used). Sadly, this one isn't it though. Although, they are in the same family. My favorite one is actually this same spoon . . .except it's blue (not pink). I think they were billed as ice cream/milkshake spoons. I use them for coffee :)
Add some ice if you would like. Otherwise, tackle this tall, cold one straight on. I prefer a little ice. And a straw - I'm a straw addict. I cannot lie. I have issues drinking icy beverages from a cup without a straw. Oh the horror! But, back to the deliciousness of the subject matter . . . . . Enjoy!
