Did someone say coffee? Yes, I did. I’ll admit that I’m a simple coffee and cream kind of girl. As a child, I’d visit my grandmother in the country and she would make “coffee milk”. That’s a little bit of coffee and a lot of milk and sugar.
That’s how my coffee adventure started – drinking coffee milk in the country.
I miss those days when I drank coffee for the fun of it. Life is now harder, sleep is harder to come by, and this woman needs her coffee. Now, I need coffee for the caffeine. Soon, I’ll have coffee-loving family and friends visiting my home and I really can’t wait. This will provide the perfect opportunity to try new coffee recipes. My sister, Jasmin, gave me some really fresh and sweet (literally) coffee recipes to try beforehand. They are probably sweeter than my grandmother would have liked. But that’s okay.
Sometimes you need a little extra sweetness in your life.
One of the coffee recipes really caught my eye. This Southern Pecan Coffee recipe is perfect for entertaining friends and family too.
Toasted pecans can be used for all sorts of recipes but I found them so good in this creamy recipe. I loved all the texture! When your lips touch the whipped cream, you also feel bits of roasted pecans. What a nice surprise for coffee. I’ve got a few people that I know are going to be excited to try this.

If my grandmother was still around, she’d definitely try this Southern Pecan Coffee. She liked pretty things and this coffee drink is definitely pretty. I’m a sucker for a pretty drink myself. Special thanks to Jasmin for this fresh coffee recipe! I can’t wait to share a cup with her and other loved ones.
