Since a lot of my pinups are going vegan and raw foodie on me, I thought that I would share this Easter recipe. Raw, Vegan, Cadbury Cream eggs. Oh goodness me yum! Click the link for the recipe. :-)
Don’t laugh, but I have found, that the right coffee can change your breakfast. Much like the right wine, pairs best with certain dinners, coffees pair well with different meals. Eggs, pastries, or oatmeal all have their own best fit first thing in the morning.
Oatmeal is a classic way to start the day – simple, filling and hearty. Topped with some fresh fruit and almonds or walnuts and honey, its flavor goes from bland to grand. This mild-flavored breakfast food goes well with a lightly roasted coffee like Eight O’Clock Coffee’s French Vanilla or Hazelnut. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Mix half a serving of Ground Hazelnut and Ground French Vanilla to deliver a Sweet and Nutty flavor.
Sweet breakfasts cooked on the griddle, like pancakes, waffles and French toast, are usually topped with syrups, jams or whipped cream. To offset all that sweetness, go with the bold flavor of an espresso or dark-roasted coffee. Eight O’Clock’s Dark Italian Roast hits the mark and is perfect for espresso aficionados. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Add a dollop of Whipped Cream in place of Milk or Cream and savor the European experience.
The traditional American-style breakfast of Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, or a hearty Ham steak is a match for Eight O’Clock Coffee’s Original Roast. Whether you like your eggs fried, scrambled or sunny side up, this medium roast coffee is an ideal choice to balance the savory flavor of egg dishes. Eight O’Clock Coffee Roaster Brewing Tip: Set aside a ½ cup of coffee to create a toast mopping red eye gravy to garnish the Ham Steak. Full recipe provided (Foodnetwork.com).

Easy, easy, easy. Yummy, yummy, yummy. I heard it over and over again that people were going to try this dessert coffee bar at their own parties. TRUST ME, it’s super easy.
Why yes, that is Unite Eurotherapy Hair Care
All guests were treated to not just a good time, fun food (hello cotton candy!!), and sangria, but before they were whisked off into the night, they were given a stuffed goody bag. Bloggers and friends alike were given goodies from our wonderful sponsors. There was almost a scuffle between friends over the Trojan Vibrations before they realized they were in everyone’s gift bags.
Trojan Vibrations – Worth Fighting Over?
Busy Bee Blogger cannot thank our event sponsors enough for their generosity. Because of their help, we were able to raise money for all of our Sandy families, while having a great time.

Thank you again to all the sponsors and everyone who came to the Sips 4 Sandy event. I cannot wait to see you all again, soon.
It’s the holidays!!! That means being overwhelmed and not wanting to do anything, let alone cook yet another big dinner.
Let me tell you, one of my favorite ways to take the stress out of dinner, and not just for the holidays. Fondue. I do mine with LOTS of chopped fruit, dried and fresh, and of course some french style bread. I can eat this alone after a long day, as a date night, or with my friends’ kids on the floor. I love love love cheese fondue, and have just found the chocolate fondue by Emmi in my grocery store.
THIS would be PERFECT for Christmas Eve late night dinner/dessert, or even a casual New Years Eve. You can do this as fun or romantic, just depending on who you are with. I am child free, but I KNOW a lot of you have kids. What better way to get them to eat fruit in a new fun way?! Dipped in chocolate or cheese, or both in one night.
Here are a few tips on how to make this a great holiday treat for you and yours.
- Let children each pick a dipping item you will serve, with so many possibilities from veggies and fruits to breads and meats – everyone will find a combination they enjoy
- While wine is a suggested beverage pairing for adults, sparkling cider, grape juice or ginger ale served in a special glass and garnished with fruit is a treat for the kids
- In the Swiss tradition, if a woman drops her bread into the cheese, she must kiss the person next to her; for kids, have whomever drops their bread do a silly dance or sing a song for the table
- Play a game where the person who tries the most adventurous or unique combination (like dipping broccoli into chocolate fondue) wins a prize
- Ready for dessert? Dip holiday cookies or gingerbread men into chocolate fondue or build “fondue s’mores” by dipping marshmallows into chocolate fondue before sandwiching them between graham cracker pieces.
- With just a few forks and one pot, preparation and cleanup is a snap so you can relax and enjoy time with loved ones
I love fondue, and I found the chocolate dessert fondue in the deli section in Vons/Safeway. If you don’t see it, just ask for help.
You could also do this for entertaining with friends on New Years Eve! Put on a pot of Eight O’Clock Coffee and you will be the most relaxed host on the block!
