Sweet Vanilla Amaretti latte


Christmas is just around the corner and, if you’re a coffee-lover like me, that means there’s something in-store now that’s worth getting excited about – Nespresso’s Limited Edition Variations!

After falling in love with their Variations last year I couldn’t wait to find out what new flavours would be hitting the shelves this festive season – and I have to tell you, I think they might just be even more delicious than last year’s.

The latest Nespresso Limited Edition Variations are Vanilla Amaretti, Ciocco Ginger and Vanilla Cardamom. Inspired by a range of beautiful and oh-so-festive flavours – dark chocolate, spicy ginger, soothing vanilla and sweet almond – these Variations are the ultimate in festive indulgence.

While you can simply enjoy the Limited Edition Variations as they are or with a splash of milk, they’re also delicious in decadent coffee creations – like this sweet Vanilla Amaretti latte. The best part? It only takes a minute longer than making your usual morning coffee. Good, huh?

Naked Nespresso Decaffeinato Martini


One of the things I love most about coffee is how versatile it is. Not only can you always rely on it to push your brain into working order each morning, but there are endless other ways you can use it to make little moments in your life a little bit better – drink it, bake with it, celebrate with it; you can pretty much do anything.

But until last month there was one way I’d never thought of using coffee – to make delicious cocktails. Seriously, who knew you could do that? It wasn’t until I tried this delicious Naked Nespresso Decaffeinato Martini at a Nespresso event last month that the thought even crossed my mind. And gosh, it is amazing!

So good in fact that I knew I absolutely had to lay my hands on the recipe and share it with you – luckily the lovely Nespresso team were ever obliging and made it happen. And judging by the response on Facebook, it looks like a lot of you were keen to try this cocktail for yourself too!

Three delish coffees to make at home


Ever feel like you’re perpetually living life on a bit of a budget? Me too! With work to be done on our first home, a kitten in need of pricey knee surgery and a trip to the US and Europe on the distant horizon, Kevin and I are working hard to keep our spending in check.

One of the first things to go when you tighten your budget is eating out – gone are takeaways on Friday nights and leisurely weekend morning brunches! But just because you can’t eat out as often doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy café-style dining at home – you can still have pancakes with berries for breakfast, you just need to grab the ingredients in your weekly shop. Then just invite a couple of friends over and you’re set…

Well, almost. The hardest part about cutting back on eating out is giving up the café coffees – you just can’t make them that good at home, right? Wrong.
