Happy Father's Day

IMG_2525.JPG

My very first memories of our mornings in the O'Hara household was my father getting up and quietly heading to the kitchen. His first mission....coffee. 

As a child, I remember the sound of the spoon scooping up spoonfuls of coffee into the electric perk. Within minutes, you heard the beginnings of our Corning Ware Coffee Maker heat, sputter and spurt as it "percolated" (I know it's not a word) our coffee. The smell of coffee begins to head through the house and you know it's time to get up. 

My first experience drinking coffee was at a young age enjoying a cup with my Dad. He's sitting in the dinette area reading the paper enjoying a cigarette and sipping his coffee. Me...I'm waiting for an opportunity to speak to find out what adventures he is planning today and how I can tag along. I was lucky....he always enjoyed me tagging along  

Today, (40 some odd years later) I wake early and begin the rituals of our day. I smell the coffee brewing and the fond memories of my dad come quickly in my head..."So what adventures will I go on today, Dad?" "I know you're with me in spirit." 

Happy Father's Day❤️

Do you know what goes great with Lolita's coffee? Peach Cobbler Crisp!

I've been busy this summer working on great sweets & treats for all to enjoy. One avenue I'm working on is great individual treats for one to enjoy at an event, party or to give as a gift! Many of you know my Lolita's Sin Cake" and I have mastered the ability to create a single serving in a mason jar. So that is my kick...mason jars. They've been around forever and so many are embracing "food-in-a-jar".

This past week I perfected a Peach Cobbler/Crisp in a mason jar. I decided to introduce it at a get together and it was a big hit. Very tasty....not too sweet...but just enough. A homemade graham cracker crust on the bottom, filled with fresh peaches and topped with a crispy crumble. 

How fun to have this on hand at a special party. I can label them for your party or event and provide a simple wooden utensil wrapped together. By the way...this Peach Crisp pairs nicely with Lolita's Blend and Ethiopian coffee. (wink, wink, smiley face)

Tested out on some friends...a big hit!
