As a kid, I always tried to sneak in extra ingredients while baking: chocolate chips in the cookies and blueberries in the blueberry muffins. I figured if it was a yummy ingredient the more the better, which makes our new Bountiful Blueberry Muffin a deliciously tasty idea.
Of course my technique did have some pitfalls, namely unstirrable batters and exploding muffins in the oven. Thankfully our master muffin baker was better prepared to take on the challenge of packing our muffin full of blueberries.
Whether your girlfriends are secret want-to-be princesses (me!) or more casual girls who love to hang out, throwing a tea party is a super fun way to enjoy some time together.
At first, the idea of throwing a tea party overwhelmed me because I don’t own a fabulous hat, but soon I realized that all I really need for the perfect tea party is a tasty menu, flavorful tea and great girlfriends.
This easy-to-prepare menu features some of our tastiest baked goods, which are super-easy to pick up at your local Starbucks when you grab your tea. To round out the menu, grab some fresh fruit at your local farmer’s market.
Tea Party Menu
It was Friday afternoon and the work week was over, but I still had a handful of errands to run before meeting friends for dinner – and I was beat. I needed a pick-me-up, not something filling that would spoil my appetite for dinner. So I decided to swing by my local drugstore to grab a Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage (I’m an Orange Melon girl) for a little boost.
Made with natural energy from Green Coffee Extract, Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage contain about a third of the caffeine from a freshly brewed cup of coffee and none of the roasted coffee flavor. I love having an energizing option that contains vitamins, ginseng and natural sweeteners. It also doesn’t hurt that with only 60 calories I’m not un-doing my time at the gym!
Summer’s back, and so is raspberry swirl pound cake. In my excitement for this delicious seasonal treat I went looking for other swirly summer favorites. Here’s what I found:
It's true. Chocolate Cinnamon Bread's brief return has already passed. But don't dismay. Follow the recipe below to make it at home whenever the craving strikes. We’ve doubled the measurements because, let’s be honest, one loaf just isn’t enough.
New and tasty Brown Sugar Walnut Tart was seen flirting heavily with sweet Caramel Macchiato. They were spotted together at Starbucks Headquarters looking pretty cozy, and it definitely seemed like they were the hottest new pairing, according to Brown Sugar Tart’s BFF Cherry Pie. “Caramel Macchiato was playing it cool but you could totally tell they were on a date. They looked totally delicious together.”
One of my favorite beverages is the Caramel Macchiato, but for those who’ve never tried it, it’s a bit of a mystery. What does the word Macchiato mean, anyway? And how do you pronounce it? Macchiato, pronounced “mah-key-ah-toh,” literally means “marked” or “stained” in Italian. Traditionally, a Caffé Macchiato or Espresso Macchiato is a shot or two of espresso, with just a small amount of steamed milk that “marks” the espresso, though in some regions, the steamed milk comes first and the espresso makes the mark.
When you’re picking out a bagel, how do you choose? Do you always pick the same kind, or do you venture into new bagel territory? Maybe it depends on your mood. Which of these best fits the way you feel today?
Did you know that your Peach Raspberry Yogurt Parfait eating method makes a profound statement about yourself?
This is not an accident. Oh no. This is an inkblot test for tastebud awareness. It’s four tantalizing components, strategically layered in the cup and awaiting self-expression!
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not a fan of mornings, especially dark and cold ones in the middle of winter. But those who know me also know that I love to eat. If anything can get me out of bed, it’s the thought of a hot and savory breakfast – all the more effective if cheese is involved.
