It has been said that at the end of life, what one will miss the most are their opportunities that they didn’t take.  There are plenty of times in my life when I have felt that I have missed opportunities, let opportunities fall through my fingers, or worse yet, ignored opportunities because I didn’t make time for them.  This past summer was wonderfully reflective for me.  I learned a lot about who I am, about life, and my future.  While my store, Kater’s Acres, went through the long and arduous process of restructuring and rebranding…I realized that was what I wanted for myself too.

Latte Make it Yourself Recipe from WikiHow

I love lattes.  Of course, I love coffee.

I love it. I can’t help myself, I just do. One of the things that I find myself spending a significant amount of money on is Coffee-Mate’s Italian Sweet Creme coffee creamer. Oh…it’s almost too good. But to be honest, the $3.00-$4.00 price tag is a killer on the shopping budget. Especially when hubby and I go through one of these 32 oz. containers a week.

Iced Coffee Recipe

Iced coffee has never tasted better than on a 90+ degree day, such as we had here yesterday in NW Pennsylvania.  One of my favorite summer drinks is by far iced coffee.  I used to spend over $3.00 on ONE of these at the nearest Dunkin’ Donut or Starbucks.  But now, I’ve gotten smarter!  I’ve figured out how to make the PERFECT cup of iced coffee, each and every time.  And the best part, it costs only about $0.30 per glass to make. So, if you’re a fan of this cooled down, chilled out, version of the famous Cup of Joe, you’ve got to try this! You can tailor this base iced coffee recipe to suit your tastes.
