A few weeks ago, Chris and I splurged and bought ourselves a one-touch espresso machine. We’ve had our Starbucks Barista machine for over 10 years and thought it was time to retire it. It was a great machine but it was manual and cumbersome. Technology has come a long way. Now you can make a great espresso drink with a touch of a button! What used to be a 20-minute process to make a latte now only takes a couple minutes!
My homemade vanilla extract is finally ready for use today –hooray! It’s been a long anticipated wait (I waited two months) and it’s finally here. So I decided to test it on a batch of banana espresso chocolate chip muffins. Why? Because I had some overly ripe bananas sitting on the counter. And who doesn’t like anything with espresso and/or chocolate?
