The college student is home. The coffee cake is sending a wonderful scent through the house as it bakes. I just heard the coffee grinder downstairs in the kitchen. All is right with the world this morning.
As I perused one of my favorite cookbooks this morning, I came upon my favorite after dinner coffee recipe and thought I would share. Just in time to accompany the pumpkin pie.
It is really quite an awesome coffee recipe and I ALWAYS have these ingredients ready and the recipe handy for holiday times. Enjoy!
