Chocolate Peanut Butter Biscotti

Some things just go together, like coffee and cream.

Chocolate and peanut butter.

My belly and these biscotti. Chocolate peanut butter biscotti with salty crunched up peanuts on top, to be exact.

This is my moment. {featuring NEW Gevalia K-Cups} #CupofKaffe

 Life is all about decisions. Decisions, change, challenges. They never seem to stop. And each decision I make seems to lead to more change, bigger challenges, and yet another decision to be made…

Like having children. I have never doubted that I wanted to become a mom. But now, I can no longer deny that I’m being faced with the decision as to whether I want to keep my job or not. The answer we’re leaning toward? Not.

I just can’t do the corporate rat race with a 130-mile per day commute, leaving me zero time to spend with those kids I wanted so badly. It’s NOT a sustainable way to live, so it’s time for a change. But that means challenges galore. Namely, our budget. But I can deal. I know big changes will need to happen, but I’m hoping I can make a lot of little ones, too.

Take my love of coffee, for instance. I live for the feel of a warm, hand-crafted coffeehouse drink in my hand. Alas, I’m going to have to break up with my barista. Those things ain’t cheap. But I have a new love! Once that saves me money without having to give up any of the quality of my beloved coffeehouse brew. It’s Gevalia, and it comes in new single serve K-cups. It’s by far the best single serve coffee I’ve ever had.

…and just look what you can do with it!

A decaf hazelnut macchiato and a slice of chocolate cinnamon bread. I know a lot of my mom friends share my love of a few peaceful moments over a great cup of joe, so my Mother’s Day giveaway will help you do just that with a $25 gift card to Starbucks!
