With autumn slowly creeping up on us, we’ve been a bit sluggish around the office. In my mind, there is really only one option to cure us of our fall funk: Eat as many seasonal foods as possible and stay in a food coma until spring rolls around again!
So, the first stop on our way to winter hibernation is the iconic caramel apple…in muffin form!
Looking for a super simple sweet treat? This lovely recipe features a shot of espresso, a little sugar, a little cool frothed milk and some fun! Watch Brandi whip it up using Nespresso’s Gran Maestria capsule espresso machine and included Aero4 automatic frother.
Place brown sugar in the bottom of a demitasse. Add espresso and then pour frothed milk on top, leaving a bit of room at the top. Float the tea biscuit and diced banana on top of the milk, then drizzle with caramel sauce.
The leaves are changing, the air is getting a bit more crisp in the mornings and you might find yourself taking a long, serious look at that fleece in the closet. Like everything in life, the seasons must change, so why not welcome the arrival of autumn with a delicious beverage?
Brandi’s newest recipe uses the one-touch simplicity of the Breville Milk Cafe to do all the heavy lifting. Watch her whip up this lovely cocoa.
Brandi is bringin’ on the serious sugar with this blended drink, featuring Monin’s fabulous caramel sauce and butterscotch syrup. If you’re in the market for a cool treat and aren’t counting the calories, this frappe is totally up your alley.
If we leave Brandi alone long enough, she always goes to a place of sweetness and light … and booze! But since we know our way around a mojito — no questions asked — we were very excited by her delicious take on this lovely cocktail. Incorporating a trio of Monin syrups and fresh strawberries, we think you’ll follow suit!
While the calendar reads summer, the seasons are already threatening to change on us here in the Pacific Northwest! Brandi decided to craft a lovely hot beverage using Bodum’s Hot Chocolate Maker. While using it makes it super easy — and fun! — you could also just heat everything up on the stove together and you’d get similar, albeit less frothy, results.
Muffins: The grab-and-go breakfast of champions! They’re slightly sweet and definitely delicious, with just enough carbs to get your day started but not so many that you fall asleep at your desk.
Now, I love pre-packaged muffin mixes with dehydrated fruit just as much as the next gal (have you ever tried those blueberries before mixing in the other ingredients? Yum!), but sometimes you want something different. Something less doped up with sugar and maybe just a tad more sophisticated, am I right?
Enter Glazed Chai Muffins. Oh yeah, breakfast just got awesome!
Looking for ways to pack more power into your coffee’s punch? How about incorporating fruits and veggies rich in anti-oxidants? Yeah, we said it. Watch as she puts everything from chocolate sauce to kale into the Vitamix … then we drink it — and it’s good!
If it’s made by Brandi, it must be luscious, right?! Well, that’s certainly the case for today’s cool concoction. Watch Brandi blend up this lovely drink, featuring Irish cream liqueur and Monin’s Coconut syrup.
