The cold weather is here and to me that means one thing – hot chocolate and cuddling with my young daughters. I am someone who relies on coffee to get through my day, but when it comes to the fall and winter, I need at least one steaming cup of hot cocoa too. And it helps that my 3 and 5 year old agree with me. Nearly every night we gather on the front porch or the back patio, sit under a blanket on a bench, and talk about our days over hot chocolate. This is a tradition that I hope continues as they get older (although I am expecting that it will dwindle during the teenage years).

Power to the picky! When we were young, we wore our pickiness like a badge – eat a sandwich with crust still on? Forget it! – but as adults, we sometimes lower our standards in the name of nutrition. Take protein powder – people often choke down gritty, bad tasting protein powder in their smoothies just because it’s “good for you.” Unlike other protein powders that can contain questionable ingredients and be gritty, chalky and, frankly, hard to choke down because they just don’t taste good, Orgain protein powders are not only packed with the most nutritious, highest quality organic ingredients but are also delicious.

Bootler is an online aggregation service for delivery food, or a search engine for delivery food. If you’d like, watch this 30 second YouTube Video to see how it works. But basically, they work with over 6 different delivery services allowing users to pick a restaurant and compare prices, availability and delivery time saving their users time and money. They are not the delivery company. They only bring together other delivery companies and then redirect you to their website. Basically, Kayak.com for flights… you book the flight through Kayak, but you fly with American Airlines.
One of my favorite things about fall is the leaves changing color and the cool breeze coming in. However, all that being said, I don’t like to be cold. So there is nothing better than a hot cup of coffee and blanket while I watch the fall scenery from my front porch. Let’s face it, there are some flavors that are better than ever when it comes to the fall season. One of those is, of course, Pumpkin! And what goes better with pumpkin than marshmallow? I say nothing! Well, we are all in luck because Java Factory Roasters has an amazing pumpkin coffee that you need this fall season – and it is called Trick and Treat.

I am a huge fan of coffee. Being a mom of two little girls that are pretty strong willed means that I value my coffee. I love all blends and roasts – from light to bold – from flavored to natural – and Brooklyn Bean Roastery has it all. One of my favorite roasts is boardwalk blend. It is the perfect blend for those early school mornings – and I highly recommend it. The Boardwalk combines the best of both worlds: a peaceful view of the sea in front of you, and the shimmering lights of the city behind you. Boardwalk Blend is a smooth, medium roast, but it’s still packed with extra bold flavor. Whether you’re in the mood for a quiet stroll or a sightseeing adventure, Boardwalk Blend will rise to the occasion.
