Chris and I just booked our flight to Nashville, Tennessee. Y'all have no clue how excited this makes me. My FAVORITE place in the world (next to Maui). Can hardly wait to introduce Kate to the south and to my cousins. I'm determined for her to have an accent. We will be making lots of trips! Nashville is my happy place. I don't know what it is but that place is amazing and my heart skips with glee the whole time I'm there and yes, I cry every time I have to get on the plane to go home. Not to mention, the food is out of this world. I have my list of places to go all set. We might as well put our house up for sale now because I'm not going to want to leave. Oh Nashville. I love you.
When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. What you’ll need. Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. Step one. Get your ingredients out. I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. Mix it real good. Time to cool it down. Now comes the sweet part. This next step is money. Lordy. If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce. Do it. If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck. This is the recipe from my mother in law. It is life changing. Ta-Da! Tag me on Instagram at
