COOKING with @CommunityCoffee . #foodie #foodporn + #Giveaway Ends 9/15 US only

Its Back To School time!! Nothing  can help you through  back-to-school mornings like a good cup  HUGE CUP of coffee. I urge you to check out the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the U.S.,Community Coffee Coampany offers high-quality blends featuring 100% select Arabic coffee beans in a variety of yummy flavors.

What I especially love about Community Coffee is their Military Match! Purchasing 4 bags for home (they make a super addition to a  Christmas basket!!) the company will match your purchase and double it  8 BAGS to APO/FPO military base!


 Available in premium ground & whole bean, as well as single-serve k-cups, this coffee is not just great for sipping – it’s an amazing ingredient to cook with!

Here are a few Yummy recipes to try, #foodie 

French Roast Chocolate Pudding Cakes
Serves: 24 / Prep: 15 mins / Cook: 20 mins
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups cocoa, unsweetened, Dutch process
3 tsps baking powder
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 cup sugar
1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar, tightly packed and separated
1 ¼ cups Community coffee French Roast or Dark Roast, brewed
1 ½ cups whole milk
3 large eggs
1 ½ sticks butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 ½ tbsps vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper muffin cups in two 12-cup muffin pans. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1 cup of cocoa, baking powder and salt. Whisk to remove lumps.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, brewed coffee (cooled), milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth (some lumps will remain).
  3. Combine the wet and dry mixtures, mixing well.
  4. Transfer batter to the cupcake pans, filling them ¾ full. In a small bowl, mix ¼ cup of cocoa and ¼ cup of brown sugar together. Sprinkle a tablespoon over each cake and place pans in the oven to bake them for 20 minutes. The cake’s edges should be crisp, but the middle should be very soft - similar to pudding. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream as a side garnish

I put my own twist on this recipe I cooked it in a bundt pan and drizzled the top with Fudge and it was a hit at my last get together.

3-Alarm Arabica Chili
Serves: 10 / Prep: 20 mins / Cook: 1-2 hours
3 ½ pounds ground beef, preferably 80/20 blend
2 ½ tbsps Canola or other vegetable oil
1 ½ cups onion, finely chopped
1 ½ small jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced
1 ½ cups Community coffee House Blend, brewed
1 can petite diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
1 tsp chili powder
¼ cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed
1 ½ tbsps cumin, ground
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 can chipotle in adobo sauce
3 cans kidney or red beans (15 oz each)

  1. Add beef to a 4-quart heavy bottom pot and bring to medium heat. Brown meat stirring frequently. Once browned, remove meat from pot and drain fat in a colander. Add the oil, onions, and jalapenos to the pot, and stirring frequently, cook until onions are translucent (approx. 5 minutes).
  2. Return browned meat to the pot and add brewed coffee, tomatoes, chili powder, brown sugar, cumin, salt, and chipotle.
  3. Cook chili uncovered on medium heat until the meat is heated and sauce thickens (approx. 45 to 60 minutes).
  4. Once chili is thickened, add the beans to the pot, return chili to a boil, and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite condiments, such as sour cream, shredded cheddar, jalapeno peppers, and guacamole.

Simple acts of kindness brings good into the world. #30DayGIVE #LovetheGIVE #WearYourHeartOut

I first herd about this as a member of Crowdtap  then I visited the main website and was even more intrigued. 
Here is the Challenge list given out by the  LoveTheGive website

The #30DayGIVE Challenge doesn’t always need to be something YOU do, it can also be thanking someone else for what they’ve done. GIVE thanks to a special person and share it to social!

WEAR your heart out by drawing, getting a temporary tattoo or pinning a red heart to show you’re doing your #30DayGIVE Then SHARE  on Social Media and encourage other to give the challenge a try!  GET THE WHOLE FAMILY INVOLVED -MAKE A DIFFERENCE

August 19th is National Hot and Spicy Food Day Celebrate with @TandoorChef #foodie

Did you know August 19 th is Hot and Spicy Food Day. It has been proven  compounds in spicy food can improve your health. The rest of my family are not to fond of the spice like I am that's why I'm a fan of Tandoor Chef Entrees I can get the benefits the rest of the family is missing out on.

 Here are 5 reasons you shouldn’t skimp on the heat with Tandoor Chef:

1.    Weight Loss: Studies show that the main compound in chilies, called capsaicin, has a thermogenic effect and may cause the body to burn more calories and boost metabolism. 
Heat up! Lamb Vindaloo.

2.    Heart Health: Studies show that cultures that eat the spiciest foods have much lower incidence of heart attack and stroke. It could be because chili peppers help to reduce the damaging effects of bad cholesterol while capsaicin helps to fight inflammation.
Heat up! Vegetable Pad Thai.

3.    Cancer Prevention: Some studies suggest that capsaicin has the ability to kill some cancer and leukemic cells. Another spice, turmericmay slow the spread of cancer and growth of tumors.

4.    Lower Blood Pressure: Vitamins A and C strengthen the heart muscle walls, and spicy heat can increase blood flow throughout your body.

5.    Boost Your Mood: Spicy foods boost production of feel-good hormones, such as serotonin, easing depression and stress.
Heat up! Malai Kofta.

With Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free verities your sure to find a entree that will suit you.
