Grab Your Coffee Cup and Get Some Fresh Brewed!

Happy Fall everyone! Hope it is a beautiful autumn day wherever you are. For all you coffee, tea and cocoa lovers, you know this also means it's time for the Fall Coffee Hop which you can visit right HERE

I had a lovely Lavender Latte (and a delicious almond cake) at my local Co-op on Monday. This definitely got me in the mood for the hop. Who would think lavender and coffee pair so well, but they really do, so I wanted to share a little recipe for a Simple Lavender Syrup and you can read more details HERE, along with a recipe for iced lavender coffee. Yum!!

Lavender Simple Syrup

1/2 tsp lavender buds, dry or fresh
2 cups sugar
1 cup water

Combine all in a small pot on the stove and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the lavender buds out, cool and store in a jar.


And, here's my card for the hop! How about some fresh brewed? The background is actually from the paper I lay down when I use sprays and stencils, and the leaves and man are stamped on copy paper I painted. Using up some scraps and just having fun!


Hope you've enjoyed my fresh brewed post, and be sure to head over the hop to see all the coffee inspiration!
