Pumpkin Spice Latte


I am sure it doesn’t come to a surprise I am posting a recipe for a coffee drink.  Most of you know and appreciate my love affair with this enveloping drink.  Ever since I was a little girl, I had a fascination with it.  I used to love helping my Grandma Taylor make her morning coffee. We would fill the percolator and listen and wait!  As soon as it was time, my Grandma would pour herself a cup in her Corning Ware Crazy Daisy cup and take a cup to my Grandpa.  She would then  make a wonderful concoction of  a little bit of coffee mixed with a lot of milk and sugar!  We would sit at her kitchen table sipping our cup o’ joe, talking and laughing!  I loved those days.

Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy. Coffee  is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat.  ~The New York Times, 1949

I love this quote.  I think of it often in the silence of my morning coffee.  I image sharing it with my Grandma.  And just like old times, together we would sit at the kitchen table sipping our coffee, talking and laughing.

Enjoy and Happy Cooking,
