Baileys Spiked Coffee with Dulce de Leche AND a Giveaway!

Is anybody a Starbucks Reward member? After my Gold Cardholder BFF informed me of the free shots, free birthday drinks, free tea refills and free drinks every 15 purchases I decided I wanted to become a Gold Cardholder too. Unfortunately it takes a lot of $$$ to get to the gold level…I’m still at green. Wah-Wah. Even though I pass 3 Starbucks on my walk to work, I generally only indulge once per week.

I wish I made coffee at home more often. Recipes like this are so easy, there’s really no reason not to! Although Baileys before work wouldn’t be the smartest idea. Last Saturday we tried this Baileys spiked coffee with Dulce de Leche and it reminded me that home brewed coffee CAN be good. You don’t need to overpay on the fancy stuff. I only tried a sip because my mom loves Baileys and she called dibs right away. But I’ll definitely be making this again.

Can you believe it’s been just over 1 year since we started this blog?!? Who woulda thunk we would make it this far? In honor of our blogiversary we wanted to do a special giveaway. Kara, Cliff and I went back and forth for months on what to give away. Finally we agreed on a Keurig. I’ve heard enough rave reviews about Keurig brewers to know that they’re pretty awesome. To be honest, I’ve wanted a Keurig for so long I’m secretly hoping my mom wins so that I can steal it from her!
