Toffee Coffee Recipe from Asheville's Biltmore Estate

Have I told you that I love Bailey's Irish Cream? I really love it in coffee as an after-dinner drink. I love Bailey's Irish Cream so much that one could really accuse me of naming my cat after the liquor. I did put a shot of Bailey's in my coffee about the exact time I threw-out Bailey as a name for our 20-pound, green-eyed, black cat. 

We no longer have Bailey the cat, but I do have Bailey's Irish Cream in my kitchen along with 12 glass coffee mugs.

Who wants to come over for Toffee Coffee?  This coffee recipe is this  recipe courtesy of the Biltmore Estate.  The Spring is a great time to visit the estate for Biltmore Blooms. Every season is great at the Biltmore, but the gardens truly shine during this time of year. 

Inn of Biltmore's Toffee Coffee

Toffee Coffee is a signature drink at the Inn at Biltmore. It's great for those chilly, mountain nights that you even find in the spring.

Mix 1 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream, 1 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps and 4 ounces coffee. Serve in a warm mug and top with whipped cream and toffee sprinkles.

  As a throwback, I thought you would enjoy seeing a candid of Will, Bailey the Cat, and me in our condo after we left our wedding reception.  Bailey was the baby before we had a baby in 2005.  Of course, I had to snap a photo with the cat on my wedding day!

We pose with our cat, Bailey, on the day of our wedding in 2002.   Ok. We've aged.

5 Awesome Reasons Why the AC Hotel by Marriott in Raleigh's North Hills Area Impresses

I've not traveled much since we bought our new house in Raleigh, adopted a dog, and become a slave to the traditional school schedule where we only have our summer off to explore.

Last weekend, I was finally back on assignment in the off-season.

Top 5 awesome reasons to stay at the AC Hotel Raleigh in North Hills #travel #familytravel #northcarolina

After seven years of owning this blog, Will and I have an unspoken blog agreement. Paid gigs get my priority when it comes to my time. Additional writing perks such as media visits come second to my first job of managing the household and being a parent. Media writing assignments are for when I burn the midnight oil, if and when I have extra time. And let's face it! As an almost 50-year-old menopausal woman with an 8-year-old and a 12-year-old, I'm exhausted most of the time and there is no "burning the midnight oil" in this house these days. The invitation to visit the AC Hotel in Raleigh North Hills came at the perfect time in my life because I needed a hotel stay to renew me and awaken my senses to escape the ordinary in my life. The best part of all is that I only had to drive 15-minutes to experience all of this in my hometown.

The AC Hotel Raleigh is located in bustling North Hills, an area called midtown in Raleigh, N.C.

The AC Hotel by Marriott is hotel brand that I've been curious about but had no personal experience. Last year, Raleigh's North Hills area was the first site in North Carolina to open the AC Raleigh Hotel. Asheville and Chapel Hill followed suit later in the year with two more properties. Charlotte, NC will open the fourth AC Hotel in North Carolina this spring.


The Spa at Ballantyne Reveals the One Thing You Should Do Weekly?

Charlotte, N.C has a jewel in the heart of the city. It's close to every major tourist attraction. Think Carowinds, the Discovery Place, the Whitewater Rafting Center, and the Panthers stadium, but yet when you check into this luxury resort, you escape the hustle and bustle of tourism. It's peaceful at this resort. There is a resort pool, a championship golf course, and a luxury spa. It has everything you could ask for and more. 

The Ballantyne Hotel and Spa in Charlotte, N.C.

Starwood's Luxury Collection, The Ballantyne Hotel and Spa, is a destination in Charlotte all of its own and it's ok to come here and never leave the property if you want. That's a play from my own playbook.  I did that this Spring with a girlfriend and guess what folks....we never left the grounds. Not once. And we loved every minute of it.
