I love coffee in the morning … but I recently sold my Keurig to become more eco-friendly. These machines are pretty cool. I mean you can get a great cup of coffee in less than a minute and you can change the flavors each time you use it. What’s not to love?
Well, I hadn’t thought much about it at the time but after reading some articles I realized those wonderful little cups just end up in a landfill. I bought one of those reuseable filters and that seemed to work for quite a while. But, I finally broke down after a year and just bought a small 4 cup coffee pot. I don’t regret my decision at all! I have also purchased a French Press but I haven’t used it yet. I’m working up to that soon though! (read previous my blog post about coffee with Tom Steiner)
If you aren’t sure about giving up your beloved Keurig check out this article below. There are some goods suggestions on ways to keep the “K” but be more environmentally conscious.
Addendum: I have now mastered the French Press! I love it! I don’t even use sugar in my coffee anymore. They flavor is richer. I used a little cream and I’m good. I suggest if you love coffee trying a French Press. You can find videos online showing you how to use them.

You need to get some of your mother’s recipes and include them.
I’m working on writing about her egg roll recipe now. I have a video on facebook of her Chicken Chow Mein recipe.
