Coffee. It’s what gets many of us going in the morning. It’s what makes it possible for me to dress myself. And to be functionally civil to [most] life forms. I can’t even look at food before 9:00 am, but don’t even try to have a conversation with me before my second cuppa.
I’m told that today is National Coffee Day. Awesome. As one Facebook friend put it so eloquently: “As if that differs from any other day.” So, even though it’s lunch time here, I thought I’d take a trip through the archives and share some of my favorite recipes that feature coffee either as the star or as a flavor enhancer. Coffee can make beef taste “beefier” and chocolate taste more “chocolaty”. You might be surprised at some of the places coffee takes me, because I’m not talking about breakfast. Although, I suppose you could if you really wanted to. 😉
I even make jam and barbecue sauce with it!
As you can see, coffee is much more than just a hot (or iced) beverage that gets me going and keeps me going, it can also be my muse and my inspiration. Where will a cup o’ joe take you, today?
