By Carol Fingar - The holidays will be here before you know it. And if you’re like everyone else, that means in addition to shopping and wrapping and party-going, you’ll be hosting a few soirees of your own. That’s why we’ve dedicated this edition of our newsletter to helping you get prepared to entertain.

One thing everyone enjoys is a good cup of joe. Whether it’s a cup of espresso with dessert, or as part of an after dinner cordial or just simply something to sip on while you sit around talking, coffee is an integral part of every holiday gathering. So we wanted to make some machine suggestions to help you prepare your liquid
refreshments for your company depending on the type of entertainer you are.

Finding the right machine requires you to know how you entertain. Do you tend to
invite a lot of guests or prefer to host intimate soirees? Are you a "hands-on" or
a "help-yourself" kind of host? All these things come into play, and that’s how we’ll
break down our suggestions... Read More

By Carol Fingar - It’s almost that time of year. The hog fest we lovingly refer to as "the holidays" is fast approaching, and our mouths are already watering in anticipation. From cookies to cakes, tempting appetizers to filling main courses, drinks to desserts, we’re all sure to pack on a few pounds as we eat, drink and get merry for the next few months. (Ah, but who cares? That’s
what New Years resolutions are for.)

As you start to plan your holiday cooking, here’s some food for thought: instead of
the same old same old cavalcade of treats, why not flavor up some of your
seasonal favorites with coffee? Here are some recipes that feature java as a
prominent ingredient. Some we created. Some we tried. Some we just stumbled
across. Pick and choose the ones that tempt your palate and work them into your
holiday spread. So enjoy, and we’ll see you at the gym in January... Read More - Recipes Galore
"Oh my god!" was heard from more than one chocolate engorged
mouth. And just so you know, the filling is light enough to be
used on its own as a pudding. Mmmm."

The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill. -It’s a mystery that will continue to be examined through the ages: What do the Beatles and espresso have in common?

Apparently David Bogie found some correlation between the two because every heading in his microfroth manifesto, "An In Depth Look at Frothing Milk", contains a Beatles lyric and/or song title that somehow eerily describes the proceeding section. After Googling the concept for a while and pondering the mystical parallels between these two seemingly unrelated notions, I was struck with a moment of clarity. When you play the White Album backward, John Lennon is reciting the golden rule over and over again.

Or maybe Mr. Bogie just had a Beatles album in his CD player when he wrote the article.

Either way, Bogie’s tome had me motivated, and not only to spend hours on the internet. I was convinced that microfroth was my rapidly approaching destiny. So I went out and bought all the supplies he listed as necessary, and even those he deemed only “strongly recommended” and “highly desirable”, hoping that these purchases would help me bypass the majority ...

"So, Bogie was right - it is all about practice. And with practice,
my friends, I feel as though I am the Walrus. Goo goo g’joob. "
