If you are a coffee lover who likes your coffee with a little more flavor to it and are not too fond of the strong-tasting espresso, then you might want to try a cappuccino or mocha. Curious? Well, read on to find out more on these two very tasty beverages. A nice, hot cup of cappuccino is a wonderful milky delight. To make a cappuccino, you first have to mix the milk and espresso and lastly, the freshly frothed milk.

For those of you with a sweet tooth, why not make a Milky Way cappuccino? To do this you will need to add an ounce of the chocolate bar to the normal 6 to 9 ounce beverage. Mix it well before the steamed and frothed milk is added.

If the Milky Way cappuccino is too sweet for your liking, then mocha is the way to go. You get a kick of chocolate without it being overly sweet. You won’t find this drink served in a cup but rather a tall glass and unlike a cappuccino, it is not topped with frothy milk. This beverage is finished off with cream just before being served for a smooth, sweet taste. If you’d like to try your hand at making one yourself, mix together in a pan milk, sugar, cocoa and coffee. However, it is important to get the right blend of cocoa and coffee for the perfect mocha taste.

The cappuccino and mocha drinks are very different from each other. While a cappuccino is made from first steaming the milk and adding frothed milk, mocha uses milk, sugar and cocoa and has a base of espresso.

Some people find the strong taste of espresso a bit harsh on their taste buds. Mochas and cappuccinos, on the other hand, are a nice when you want a lighter drink. They can be very expensive in coffee shops so it saves a lot of money making them at home instead. Just buy yourself an espresso-maker and sit back and enjoy a nice, hot, steaming cup of your favorite beverage.

 

Have tea in the house?

I can just smell it. Fall is right around the corner. I thought 91 degrees was a relief from the heat. But boy does the mid 80s feel like fall!

 

That cool breeze and low humidity…all I can say is YES YES YES!

 

I’m on my front porch covered in cat hair from my lovely little Ms. Mabel. As I sit here, I feel peace and relief. Something I have been searching for a long time.

 

About 9 days ago, I quit drinking sweet tea. You would think the 7 fillings I had this summer would have stopped me from drinking sweet tea, but no! For the past couple of months, I’ve had pounding headaches every single day. They were so bad that my husband would have to squeeze my head and rub the back of my neck every night. I was tired all of the time and could never fall asleep.

 

I decided last week to quit drinking all caffeine. Which meant I had to give up my precious tea. I would drive to get a sweet tea every afternoon. I would have it for every meal. I’m addicted to it. I gave it up cold turkey, something I have done once before. It was hard for three days. My body was in shock. I had headaches really bad for a couple of days and craved it, but I just chugged water all day long.

 

Since then, my headaches have pretty much disappeared. I am able to fall asleep faster and sleep longer. I feel better and have lost a little bit of weight. When I get tired, I workout instead of having sweet tea. I think I’m going to keep going with this plan of no tea. It’s sad, but I can’t handle the headaches…especially when I’m doing photo sessions.

 

So…hooray for no headaches!
