After a month of chaos, I am embracing this sudden down time.
Within this past 3 ½ weeks, I’ve graduated from college, visited family abroad in London, surprised my dad out in California for his 50th birthday, made a quick stop in Philadelphia to celebrate Dj’s birthday, & then made the drive back to Morgantown!
It’s been a whirl wind of activity but a ton of fun! 🙂

I also turned 23 last Saturday! Growing up, I learned (thanks, Blink 182) that nobody likes your when you’re 23, so here’s to hoping that is not true. 😉
Throughout all of this craziness, I haven’t been cooking too much. All of that is now about to change! Starting off with my Lean Shredded Chicken Tacos with Seasoned Sweet Potato Crisps (y-u-m-m-m).
Yesterday morning I made Dj and I some Pumpkin Spice Soy Lattes. Now that we are graduated and moving to Florida at the end of the month, I’m trying to save some money! One thing that I have cut out completely is Starbucks and other coffee places. Rather, I have started up a mini (massive) relationship with my Keurig and am attempting more fun coffee recipes.
The latest is this Pumpkin Spice Soy Latte.
*¾ cup Pumpkin Spice Soy Milk *2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon *1 packet of Truvia *You choice of K-cup*
I used pumpkin spice flavored K-cups, but I’m not the biggest fan of this flavor. It’s not strong enough for me, so I would recommend using a more potent flavor, or just a black strong roast.
One thing on my wish list is a milk steamer. My dad has one in his house and I used it every day. I was in love!!
In the mean time, I steamed my milk on the stove.
Simply mix all of the ingredients together in a sauce pan and turn the burners on to medium high heat.
Make sure to constantly stir the milk mixture so that it doesn’t burn!
Once it starts to heat up, brew your coffee.
You want to wait until the milk is bubbling and constant steam is rising.
Once the milk mixture is ready, stir in with your coffee.
I need to work on creating some latte art! I’m sure once I finally invest in a steamer I can do it!
