Do you follow Kristina Kuzmic on Facebook or Instagram? If you don’t…you should!! I do, I believe I have watched every video she has ever made; she is my alter ego. Her mom truth is the best, and absolutely relatable.

If you follow her on Instagram, a few days ago she made a minute video about her homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte…it had me at…Pumpkin and easy to make.

Once Sophia was fast asleep, I brewed a fresh pot of coffee and made her homemade creamer!

For about a week Pittsburgh has been more snowy and cold than it has been all winter long. Just a few weeks ago we hit 78 degrees…it was heaven, but I must admit I am really anxious for April. With the cold weather upon us still…..

I thought it would be fun to put a twist to your normal Hot Chocolate and make Unicorn Hot Chocolate. Plus, I knew that Sophia would just love it.

Homemade Vanilla Steamers

When I was pregnant with Sophia I completely cut out caffeine, except for when I dealt  with morning sickness..I did allow myself non-caffeinated Ginger Ale.

I am personally not a huge coffee drinker, I think that I may have two cups a week..maybe. So, cutting it out during pregnancy was not an issue.

If I met some friends at Starbucks for a coffee date, I was really stumped as to what to drink at the time. Until someone told me about Vanilla Steamers.

Then I had a Starbucks pregnancy drink!

Candy Corn Inspired Drinks!

SAMSUNG CSC

I love candy corn..wait let me rephrase that. I love the way candy corn looks, but I really dislike the way it tastes. I love the way it looks in a candy dish..maybe even used as a decoration on a cake.

They’re adorable, but I personally don’t eat them.

I thought it would be really fun to do a Candy Corn inspired drink. Non-alcoholic of course, but I am pretty sure we could make it a little more fun! But we are making it kid friendly this time!

Homemade Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Creamer!!!

“Saaay what?” Yes. If this makes your heart skip a beat and bring hearts to your eyes then I have the perfect recipe to share with you.

This is from my Better Homes and Garden 100 Best Pumpkin Recipes magazine I bought about two months ago.

Last week Sophia and I met up with my friend Paula and her daughter Emma for a day in downtown Pittsburgh. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to whip up some Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Creamer, since Paula is a Spiced Pumpkin fan.

Hot Apple Cider

Have you gone to any apple festivals yet? My mom and I went to one about two weeks ago with Sophia. It was so much fun! At the festival they had a barn filled with these huge, deep crates filled with Apples.

With Sophia being an apple lover, we went home with a bunch of apples! Too many actually, but then I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to make homemade apple cider.

My friend Emily shared this recipe with me several years ago, and every since then I always  make it for the house around fall time.

Tropical Sunset Drinks

I am a total avid youtube watcher, it’s a serious addiction. I have been following a few channels for quite sometime now, but one of my favorite channels is called HeyKayli. I just love her, she is so crafty and down -to -earth. If I was a ‘youtuber,’ I would want a channel like hers.

The other day I saw she made some non-alcoholic tropical drinks with her two kids. And I thought “I have to make those for Sophia.” Considering we only have about a month left of summer these drinks are perfect way to celebrate the season a little bit longer.

Summer Peach Iced Tea

On Saturday night my best friend Charnaye came over for dinner and a movie. This has always been one of our favorite things to do together ever since we were in high school, and we do it several times a year. I went to Target and bought ten peaches they were .71 cents each and in beautiful condition. Have I told you that I have an obsession with fruit this summer? I can’t get enough of it. If you were decided to randomly stop by my house you would notice I have an over abundance of fruit. And yes it all get eaten.

So, I decided to make Peach Iced Tea! If you missed my Homemade Iced Tea you can check it out here.

Homemade Ice Tea

Tis’ the season for homemade iced tea. As far back as I could remember once spring made its grand appearance, so did this drink to our dinner table. Ever since I was taught how to make it I honestly can not stop. I want to try all kind of variations of iced tea this summer, but I figured that it would be in everyones’ best interest to start with a basic iced tea.
