Vanilla Spice Latte [Bodum French Press and Frother Giveaway]

vanilla spice latteI love winter. I really do, I love snow and being cold, and even the short days. But even I get anxious for spring to arrive. Last year, we missed the growing season and could not have a garden because we were in between houses. This year, we have the teeny-tiniest yard and have to be really creative with planning a garden in such a small space. I do not have a green thumb, but I am always hopeful. A few afternoons ago, it was cold and rainy, I made myself a latte and started daydreaming about our summer garden. I have been reading some books on gardening in small spaces and am amazed at how much yield you can get from a few feet of garden space. Do you have any tips to share about planning a garden?

I was so excited when Starbucks did their vanilla campaign. I love vanilla anything, and usually order a vanilla soy latte. I fell in love with the vanilla spice latte, but it is gone already! I think that was only around for a month. I loved them so much that I had to create a copycat version. I think that I like mine better. The vanilla spice syrup keeps for a few weeks in the fridge and would make a really nice Christmas gift. I know that a latte is usually made with espresso, but I just use a dark roast coffee. Bodum sent me a french press and milk frother to use and I am thrilled with how easy it was to get a coffee shop quality latte from my kitchen. I don’t drink milk, so I used Almond Breeze, and the result was a light and frothy latte. A treat on a cold, winter afternoon.

    If you don’t have to much space, you can look into container gardening. You can always move those containers around, or even put them in the front of your house. I have also seen some really cool wall gardens. Even baskets that you can hang on a wall or a post could be really useful.
