Staples Pick Me Up Hour on National Coffee Day

0

It’s National Coffee Day!  Cheers!

Coffee is my beverage of choice, from first thing in the morning to a cup of decaf in the evening, coffee gets me through the day.

Since I’m a Keurig girl, I had the chance to try out the Keurig OfficePro brewer from Staples as well as all of the fixings!  Coffee, creamer, sweetener, you name it.

The Keurig OfficePro Premier Single-Cup Coffee Brewing system is a beast.  It has a massive 90 oz. removable water reservoir that allows for easy cleaning and refilling.  There is a choice of 4 cup sizes (4 oz., 6 oz., 8 oz. and 10 oz.) and the drip tray is removable so you can easily use a travel mug.  The Keurig OfficePro Premier is so quiet and I appreciate the energy saving mode.

If coffee isn’t your preferred beverage, don’t worry!  There is a great selection of teas, hot cocoa and cider K-Cups available.  Paige loves her cocoa!

One of my favorite morning delectable to enjoy with a fresh brewed cup of coffee is Maple-Pecan Scones.  The recipe belongs to one of my favorite people, The Pioneer Woman.  I not only own all of her cookbooks, but gift them frequently.  The scones are probably my favorite ever.

1/4 cup pecans, plus more for sprinkling
1 large egg
3/4 cup heavy cream

It just wasn’t my day to bake – as you can see below, one of those delicious scones just jumped right off the pan when I was removing them from the oven.  In my attempt to catch the rest of them, I made a mess!

When you get it right, it’s worth it!  Even though I made a huge mess, I’d make these scones over and over again.  Enjoy with a cup of your favorite coffee, it’s a treat.

Another favorite recipe, it’s quite simple it’s your favorite fresh brew coffee and Bailey’s or Carolands.  Simply add a shot or two to your cup.  It’s the perfect dessert!
