Christmas baking and money saving tips

My hope is that you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! I think it is safe to say that we can start focusing on Christmas now!

The month of December is a great time to try new recipes. It allows us to spend time together with our family and friends in the kitchen. It also gives us an excuse to bake up new desserts...allowing us to say that we are practicing for Christmas! 

I love fudge! If you want to make easy fudge for the Holidays this year, check out this article on Christmas fudge recipes.

Oprah's chai tea at Starbucks


Orpah's Chai Tea Latte by Teavana (picture taken from Starbucks)

Have you been into Starbucks lately? For someone like me who drinks coffee daily, that is a silly question. They are offering a new kind of chai latte in the name of Oprah! Starbucks has always offered a chai tea latte of sorts, but now that Oprah's name is attached to it, I bet they are selling left and right, making the duo a ton of money!

I have written a piece on where to find a good chai latte in Raleigh, NC and within this article I talk about Oprah's amazing chai latte and provide a link for you to see what is in it and the nutritional info behind it.


If you live in Raleigh, or even if you don't, here is my take on a few of the best places to get coffee:
