A beautiful Kitchenaid espresso machine.

Wowza!

We have spent the holiday in a caffeine – fueled burst of deliciousness.  As for the kids, they have a new favorite: steamers (steamed and frothed milk with flavored syrup).

I may be a little jacked up on caffeine right now, but I can’t enough enough of the little shots of espresso Paul has been making me, sweetened with a bit of sugar and mixed with frothed heavy cream.

So decadently brilliant.

My waistline doesn’t stand a chance.
