Peanut Butter Bomb Smoothies

It’s official, folks.  I finally found a way to enjoy almond milk!  Yes, I know, very exciting news. I have tried almond milk several times and in a variety of ways.  Each of those times I found it gross, which is weird because I like almonds and I like milk.  I don’t need to go dairy free (and I have no intentions of doing so either), but I want to expand my horizons.  So with the new year upon us I thought I’d give almond milk another try.  I’ve never tried it in a smoothie so I figure I’d give that a go.  Well, …

Eggnog Latte

I have one word for you.  Eggnog. Yes, I’m going there… already.  A couple of weeks ago I was standing on line at Starbucks and saw that they have an eggnog latte on their menu.  I’ve made an Eggnog Frappuccino before… which is to die for, but I’d never made a hot version until now.  After seeing how easy it was to make a pumpkin spice latte at home, I knew that I had to give the eggnog version a try. Do you recognize the glass of eggnog?  It’s from my favorite Christmas movie that I must watch every year. …

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’m celebrating Halloween week with pumpkin spice lattes and orange nail polish. Can you believe it’s almost Halloween?  It felt like just yesterday that I was in a bathing suit sipping a prickly pear margarita.  Okay, maybe not literally yesterday, but it was vacation and it was hot in Arizona, so it wasn’t so long ago that it could already be Halloween.  Could it? Pumpkin spice latte is THE coffee to have for Fall.  Just ask every doughnut shop in your area how they feel about it.  I happen to love it so I’d do what what any ordinary food blogger would …

Tropical Banana Smoothie In A Bowl

Alright Monday, let’s do this thing. I haven’t had a smoothie in a while.  Remember when I was on a smoothie kick and I shared several smoothie recipes with you in a short period of time?  At that time I probably should have temporarily rebranded Tina’s Chic Corner to be Tina’s Smoothie Corner.  It’s only fair.  My husband fake rebrands his Bread Corner as often as the mood suits him.  🙂 I’m bringing smoothies back.  I should have taken advantage of the calorie free weekend.  You know, because calories don’t count on the weekends.  Instead, I decided to eat a …

Iced Mocha

Do you look forward to your morning coffee?  You will now.  🙂 When my lil’ sis and I plan our shopping days together, we MUST hit a coffee shop and l look forward to it, even days beforehand.  I’m very serious about my coffee.  😉 I even post pics of my various coffee adventures on Instagram and Twitter.  Although I have to admit that I only started sharing these kinds of pics because it seems like everyone else does it.  Yes, I feel like I’m back in 5th grade and peer pressure has gotten the best of me because I want to …
