There is nothing I love more than having a hot coffee first thing in the morning when I wake up, especially on chilly fall mornings. There’s something so peaceful and comforting about wrapping my hands around a coffee mug filled with delicious brew. These days I’ve been particularly enjoying adding some seasonal spice for additional flavor and warmth. Taken black (as Crosby likes it on the right) or with homemade nut milk (how I like it, left) it just hits the spot.
Give the recipe below a try and let me know what you think!
Spiced Coffee for 2, French Press
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp vanilla powder
1/4 Tsp Pimenton – smoked paprika
3 Tbs coffee, ground for the french press
Tiny pinch of sea salt
Place the first five ingredients in the french press. Boil the water (200 degrees F), pour over the contents in the french press, mix and let stand 3 – 4 minutes.
Press, pour and enjoy!

GoodEggs has been my go-to solution for having extremely high quality, fresh, local food for dinners at home since I moved out of San Francisco and went back to work in an office last year.

I love waking up and starting the day feeling good. Here are three things I do to ensure that’s the case! 1. Hydrate. I drink a giant glass of water with a few drops of Sakara Beauty Water concentrate, two teaspoons of Super Elixir and a gooey vitamin C pack. This supercharged drink gets my … Continue Reading →
There’s something about cooking together – the shared experience, learning, experimentation, and primal comfort – that makes for a fantastic date activity. Crosby and I love to cook/eat together (as I talked about here, planning the week’s meals is a favorite activity). We first took a cooking class together because of our shared love of Thai … Continue Reading →
I got this top (now on sale!) when I was between meetings in New York. I was having one of those times when I just felt super lackluster and desperately needed some retail therapy. I ducked into the Alice & Olivia shop across from Bryant Park and immediately fell for this blouse. It has just … Continue Reading →
There’s a reason white was invented: August. I love black – it is my go-to color 11 months out of the year. But then there comes that final stretch of summer where the heat blazes up at you from the concrete and down on you from above. That’s when it’s time for white. In order … Continue Reading →
