  1. Some of the recipes sound really interesting! I really like adding coffee to stews and, love Red Eye Gravy!!! Have you tried, Coffee Flour? I love baking with this, it has really made a huge difference, a deep richness in everything I have made. I like to make, open pantry cookies for grab and go and muffins for mid day pick me up, a great way to use up the little bits of this and that. 2nd perk, using much less sugar! So far I have found the Coffee Flour at Sprouts and Trader Joe's!raf
