As we write this, most of us are under a blanket of snow, the temps have dipped … a lot, but there is one thing we can count on being hot — our morning cup of coffee. Whether it is perked, dripped or pressed, it is still the most favorite part of the day for us. There is nothing like that whiff of fresh brewed coffee, or a bittersweet espresso, that first sip, and then the ahhhhhhhhh feeling you get! It is a morning ritual for many of us.
But the popular beverage is not just for the morning: You can have it any way you like, any time of the day; the possibilities are endless. There are many savory and sweet recipes using coffee and espresso as an ingredient, from tangy sauces for a tender filet mignon to a few teaspoons flavoring your favorite cookies or cakes.
