The Nutcracker is such a magical holiday performance.  So, I'm taking my niece out to a wonderful dinner and then going to see the Nutcracker tonight.  The Pacific Northwest Ballet puts on the most spectacular show.  It really puts us in the holiday spirit!  We can hardly wait!



By The Fire

These cold winter days make me want to sit by the fireplace with a hot beverage and get toasty warm.  I have two wood burning fireplaces in my house, but not one outside.  After seeing this lovely setting, maybe I should add one.  Isn't this one perfect?!

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...  especially if it's decorated like any of these pretties. 


My Little Bialetti

Meet my new best friend, Bialetti. This Italian espresso maker makes the best coffee, hands down.  It is owned by 9 out of 10 households in Italy. I'm guessing they know a thing or two about coffee!  After seeing Ina Garten and Giada DeLaurentiis use them on their cooking shows over the years, I've been meaning to get one.  Can you believe it only costs $30? No kidding.  And, it's the easiest thing I've ever used.

All you do is fill the bottom with cold water, put espresso grounds in the filter and screw the top on. Then, place it on the stove. {How cute is that little man on the pot.} Adorable!

Here's the espresso I bought to use in it. Illy, you can't go wrong I tell you...

I opened the lid, just for a quick photo, so you can see how the coffee starts to come out the top...

Then, I made my all time favorite drink, an iced latte. Pure heaven. It really is superior to any coffee shop I've been too. Starbucks has nothing on my little Bialetti. Seriously!

Bon Appetit!
