A Sweet Springtime Treat

Welcome to Foodie Friday!

Spring brings our first blossoms, birds chirping and the smell of freshly mowed grass. It also brings hours of work to bring our flower beds back from the tough winter weather.


I always start working in my flower gardens early in the morning. It's pretty typical of me to stop mid-morning for a cup of coffee and a little something sweet to accompany it.

In today's blog I'm sharing my steps to making a delish pot of French Press Coffee accompanied by a slice (or two) of Cinnamon Sugar BiscottiNow doesn't that sound like a nice reward after a few hours of toiling in the soil?


How to make French Press Coffee--

Add:

1.    1 tablespoon coarsely ground coffee per cup
2.    Pour boiling water into the carafe within approximately
       1 inch from the top of the carafe.
3.    Stir with a non-metallic utensil.
4.    Place lid assembly on top of carafe. Brew 4 minutes.
       With one hand firmly holding handle, use other hand to 
       slowly press the plunger down to filter the coffee.
5.   Tilt, pour and enjoy!



The house was filled with the delicious scent of cinnamon while the biscotti was baking. Biscotti is as easy as the steps you see above.  Here is the link to the recipe that I used:
