Happy Sunday! I was up nice and early this morning on a mission. Yesterday I found this recipe for Lemon Raspberry Muffins that I thought sounded delicious. So when I did my grocery shopping yesterday I stocked up on the ingredients. And they turned out awesome.
I enjoyed them with a new coffee experiment. They had the prepackaged Starbucks Peppermint Mocha at the store last night, and I usually walk right past because while it’s not terrible it’s got a TON of sugar (for someone who doesn’t put sugar in their morning coffee). But then I had a brainstorm… what if I mix regular coffee with the Peppermint Mocha (no cream) and ice it. So far it’s a success… I’ll let you know if I regret this decision later. It might be a pretty hefty dose of caffeine.
