The weekends are the best time for me to try out new recipes. So this Saturday morning, before I went to the gym, I decided to try a new recipe that I had brewing in my mind for a couple of weeks. I called it: pumpkin spice fudge, and it was going to be the easiest pumpkin spice fudge recipe you had ever seen!

Let's learn about lemons Drinking lemon juice Every morning I squeeze a fresh lemon using my hand juicer. I pour the first half I squeeze into a large glass, and fill it with water. I place the juice from the other half in the fridge so I can do the same thing later in the day.
Martini Coffee Roasters
Anyone who knows me for five minutes knows how much I adore coffee. More so, a great cup of coffee. Nick Martini, Co-Founder & COO at Martini Coffee Roasters, reached out to me on LinkedIn, and after we started chatting, he offered to send me a sample of his AMAZING coffee. I have to say I am thankful that he did because I am hooked. He sent me a bag of decaffeinated coffee beans (Yes, I asked for decaf).
