Sunday Fun Day Giveaway: Starbucks Fall Flavors

Happy Sunday! It's a fun one planned for us as we're enjoying the Halloween festivities later today. My son Joel is looking forward to dressing up in his fuzzy giraffe costume and trick or treating. We've tried to get him to say 'trick or treat,' but he'd rather say "yummy yummy!" instead. We'll see how things go today and hopefully he'll keep his costume on. We had a trial run on Friday at a kiddie Halloween party we hosted and he did fine with the costume for most of the day. Do you have any Halloween plans this weekend? Last week, my friends at Ulysses Press sponsored the giveaway with a generous offering of one of their tasty cookbooks, Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day. A lucky reader will receive a copy of this delicious cookbook, filled with pizza and flatbread recipes that can be made in minutes! A special thanks to St. Martin’s Press for sponsoring. Here's a big Congratulations to the winner of this past week's giveaway! Please shoot me an email at [email protected] to claim your prize...
Artisan Pizza & Flatbread Cookbook
Winner: Comment #24!

I'm definitely a coffee person. I love starting my day with a hot cup during breakfast. I also enjoy it as a mid-afternoon pick me up. And to wind down after a long day, a cup of decaf coffee soothes me before bed. Despite drinking coffee throughout the day, it's always better when I pair my cup o' joe with something to eat. Sometimes it's sweet, other times it's savory. It really depends on my mood and time of day. Now that it's fall, I've been enjoying my coffee with both sweet and savory dishes including...



Regardless of what I enjoy my coffee with, for me it's especially important that it's good coffee. A favorite coffee at our house is Starbucks. I think it's great they have their coffees available to make at home and they're also readily accessible at major grocery stores.
They are currently highlighting some of their popular coffees for the season and it's a delicious way to usher in the fall...


French Roast: Intensity, passion – what else could this coffee be, but French? Our deepest, darkest roast, with a smoky, extra bold flavor. Tasting Notes: Intense & Smoky


Italian Roast: Imagine a ride on your scooter and lose yourself in the winding, romantic streets of Rome. A sturdy dark roast with caramel notes perfect for any fall day – at home or abroad. Tasting Notes: Roasty & Sweet


House Blend: Enjoy the distinct flavor of our signature roast wherever your fall day takes you. Well balanced and always lively, like a breath of fresh autumn air. Tasting Notes: Lively & Balanced


Breakfast Blend: Clean, light-bodied and sparkling, Breakfast Blend might just make a morning person out of you. If you’re already a morning person you’ll love waking up to this special roast. Tasting Notes: Crisp & Tangy
Thanks to my friends at Starbucks, they will be sponsoring this week's Sunday Fun Day Giveaway.
