  1. I have a cute Baskin Robbins cup. Snoopy is on the outside and the inside of the cup is yellow with Woodstock. I put one spoon of instant coffee into the cup and add hot water up to Woodstock's toes, Then I fill the cup with milk. In the summer I put one spoon of instant coffee into a tall glass, add about an inch of boiling water and fill the glass with ice cubes. I fill in the space around the ice with milk. I am jokingly asked If I would like a bit of coffee in my milk.

  3. At home I have my coffee with creamer and sweetener. I do enjoy flavored coffee, too. Love lattes from Starbucks. I'll have to try those recipes you just gave us!

  4. When I brew coffee at home, I add sugar-free vanilla to it. When I buy at Speedway, I add 8-12 oz of fat-free french vanilla cappuccino. At StarBucks I usually get a Latte. I like tea also but don't fix often. I drink at my friend's house.

  5. Like Dasha, tea never coffee for me. I usually drink black teas like English Breakfast, but like to combine a black tea bag with a lemon/ginger bag in my teapot for 'special' times- often!

  6. My husband jokes that it's usually creamer with a bit of coffee. (My coffee is more like a cappuccino.) I like the sounds of the Coffee Mocha though. Might have to try that one.

  7. I like strong Italian roast coffee with a splash of Sweet Italian Cream. When I drink tea, it is a very fine Earl Gray with honest oil of Bergamot, and just black.

  11. Mostly I'm a tea person...Twinnings decaf English Breakfast is my favorite but my older daughter is a barista and I've discovered that Caramel Mocha's are pretty good, too! Of course, I say I like my tea Southern Style...lots of sugar! Beth @ Words & Stitches, pbstrand@msn.com

  12. When I drink coffee, hubby teases me that I like a little coffee with my sugar. I seldom drink coffee, but, Java Daves, out of Oklahoma is wonderful! Love their Snickerdelicious the best. I'm a tea person, and drink all kinds, but, lately I've been drinking herbal teas. Oh yea, I have your Honey Ribs in my crock pot right now. Yum!

  14. I like my coffee decaf, black, (although I'll sometimes add water if I'm "out and about" - at home I use two measures for a 12 cup pot!.) And tea ? I love the flavored teas that can be found in supermarkets today ... blueberry green tea, chai vanilla, raspberry herbal ... so many that I cant name them all. Peppermint is another favorite, especially if I'm not feeling well. I'm just beginning to learn to add honey to black tea for an extra-special treat!
