smitten list

jeans, jeans, and more jeans
i am a jean girl through and through.  i may depart from the jean once in a while but will always come back to this wardrobe staple.  and i have loads of jeans...sevens, rock and republic, true religion, you name it...but sevens have my heart.  would love to pick up this pair...yummy.

a good cup of coffee
i have been limiting my caffeine intake since last new year's day...well-timed as i got pregnant soon after and am now nursing.  so i really enjoy a good cup (or half a cup) of coffee.  i saw giada on the ellen show and she made this fabulous spiced coffee that is just delicious.  i have since made it a few times, topped with whipped cream, and dusted with cinnamon.  i could actually go for a cup right now...

Spiced Coffee with Cinnamon

Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis

1 cup sugar
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups double strength brewed coffee (Giada's Blend)
Vegan whipped cream (Available at health food stores like Whole Foods) - i used regular whipped cream

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ½ cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce heat to low. Add the allspice, cinnamon, and ginger and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved.

Take the pan off the heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the spiced syrup to each cup of coffee and stir to combine. (Optional: Top each cup with a dollop of vegan whipped cream.)
Dust with additional cinnamon and serve.

Makes: 4 servings
