Spiked Iced Coffee with Bailey’s

I’m a coffee person. In the mornings, I like hot coffee, but in the afternoon, I like to go for something a bit cooler. Whenever I go to a coffee shop, I am usually that freak that orders an iced coffee whether it’s January or July. Buying coffee out can definitely get expensive, so I’ve come to love cold brewed coffee that I can enjoy at home, sans judgement from the baristas. Cold brewed coffee is just what it sounds like — coffee that’s brewed at room temperature for 15 to 24 hours. Because the coffee concentrate is so strong, you must dilute it with milk or water, and it makes an excellent iced coffee.

I loved drinking Slingshot Coffee Company’s coffee concentrate when I lived in Raleigh, but you can also make it yourself. It makes a ton, so it’s really nice if you’re making coffee for a crowd. Anyway, earlier this week, I went to Trader Joe’s and I was so happy to discover that they sell a store-brand version. I was so inspired, I decided to spike my beloved iced coffee with a little Bailey’s for this week’s Friday Night Delight. I want to drink this forever. Happy weekend! // susannah

Fluffy Golden Waffles

Who wants breakfast for dinner? Me! Me! Me! Because you can have the best meal of the day twice! Well, I guess it’s second only to brunch. Sadly, I have dinner plans tonight, and since I’m away from home, I have limited resources here, so I’m reposting a recipe from my old, failed cooking blog.

I made these waffles during a huge snowstorm last winter, and they’ve been a weekend morning favorite of mine ever since. All this cold weather we’re having reminds me of that day and the wealth of comfort and warmth a good breakfast can bring, so I’m glad I can share it again. // Susannah
