The dessert form of Coffee

Who likes coffee with their desert? I do!!!! Especially when it is Canadian Coffee. icanaffordcanadianwhiskeyMy Dad has been making this drink since the late 1970’s and it has been a family tradition as far back as I can remember. Why is it called Canadian Coffee you ask? Well because it has some Rye Whisky in it!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup hot brew coffee

1 T Rye whisky

1 T Kahlua coffee liqueur

1 T Amaretto liqueur

1 T Triple Sec liqueur (dad’s addition)

Whipped cream and cherry to garnish

icing sugar

Rub the lip of an Irish coffee glass with a paper towel soaked in amaretto. Dip the glass in icing sugar to frost the edge. Pour the ingredients into the glass and top with whipped cream. Garnish with the cherry!

irishcoffeestandardweb1How lovely is that? I just love this little night cap with my dessert!

 

For those of you who would prefer a non-alcoholic coffee with their dessert try my brother’s Vietnamese coffee. espresso_still_life

You need: 1 serving of espresso coffee and 1 T of sweetened condensed milk. Pour the ingredients over ice in a large glass.  Stir and serve!

PS: My brother often adds a liqueur to make this drink just alittle more interesting!

Hope you enjoy your coffee……Make sure to use decaf if caffeine keeps you up at night!

Pioneer in a new musical genre – Allergy Music

 “Dealing with food allergies and dietary restrictions should not be taken lightly, but yet must be viewed with optimism.” This is the message  Kyle Dine, a young, Canadian musician, focuses his music on. He uses his music to educate children about food allergies. In fact, he is the first Canadian musician to release an album about allergies. Kyle does performances at schools for children in kindergarten up to grade 8. His songs focus on key messages like bringing your epi pen with you. He actually has a song called Epi-Man who is a super hero epi pen that saves the day. In the following video Kyle speaks about his new CD called “You must be nuts” and sings the song “Epi-Man”

Enjoy!

Kyle has a very informative web site where you can buy his CD, look at pictures and videos, read articles, book him to come to your school and much much more.  

 

He also maintains a my space page where he interacts with his fans and you can listen to songs like, gluten free blues, smellephant, and That’s a peanut!

 

 

 

 

 

 

A teacher at one of the schools he performed at stated that Kyle’s concert was the most fun and most poignant concert their school had ever had and that the students absolutely loved it!

When I become a teacher Kyle will definitely be invited to my school.

Best of Luck Kyle!
