Brrr & Brew


Want to see our new coffee grinder?


Nick’s been wanting this for a while, and he finally had enough money after getting Christmas + graduation gifts.

It came to the house yesterday, but I left the box for him to open :)

It’s like a pro coffee grinder! This should give us the perfect (and consistent) grind for French press – no more grounds at the bottom or whole beans left in the grinds that never hit the blade.

Of course, Nick made coffee this morning so he could try it out.


I’m not complaining  ;)


The coffee went perfectly with my Apple Crisp Oatmeal.


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1 small apple, diced and microwaved for 1 minute with cinnamon
  • more cinnamon :)
  • 2 Tbsp craisins
  • 2 Tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1 Tbsp butterscotch chips


It’s Friday!!!


What’s the biggest appliance you have?


  1. That coffee grinder is awesome! The biggest one is probably my deep fryer or large food processor – its huge!

  2. I own a beautiful bright yellow KitchenAide mixer. Unfortunatly it’s so big it lives in my childhood bedroom instead of my apartment!

  3. Coffee grinder — fun!. I have a mixer and juicer — those bad boys are pretty huge :)

  4. My biggest one is probably my Kitchen Aid mixer–I don’t even have room to keep it on the counter!

  5. Mmm! I love butterscotch on oatmeal!

    I guess my biggest appliance would be my George Foreman. I really would like a Crock Pot one day :)

  6. Nice! My parents say their coffee grinder is the best thing ever! My Kitchen Aid stand mixer is huge, but I love it so I don’t care!

  7. Ooohh I need a coffee grinder! I get grinds in the french pressed coffee too :?
    The biggest appliance I have would have to be the vita-mix

  8. I would say my crock-pot & indoor grill are two of my largerst appliance. I ♥ them both. :)

  9. My new ice cream maker is taking up some serious counter space ;-)

  10. Mmmm, butterscotch chips! Love those!! Hope you guys like the new grinder :)

  11. Wow, that is the mother of all coffee grinders! I’ve actually had my coffee grinder for . . . 17 years! Yep, I bought it right after my daughter was born – it was only like $15 at the time too!

    Still works like a charm! But of course, upon saying that, I jinxed it and it will break tomorrow! :D

  12. omg – buying butterscotch chips this weekend so I can re-create this exact bowl – Heavenly!!!

    My biggest (and fave) appliance is my pink Kitchenaid stand mixer. Love that girl!

  13. Ha love this question! The space in my tiny NYC kitchen is definitely limited so not too many big appliances make the cut…but my Kitchen Aid mixer is the biggest (and best) one I have…followed closely by the blender!

  14. My new food processor–it dwarfs my single cup brewer

  15. My juicer, for sure, that thing is huge!

  16. I love the fact that Nick’s wanted a coffee grinder. He sounds like my kind’a dude!

  17. My coffee maker is huge! I love it though. Yay for new toys!

  18. Oh my oh my. That oatmeal looks delicious.

    The VitaMix is pretty big, but our bread machine may be even bigger.

  19. Coffee grounder sounds like fun! And I love butterscotch chips.

  20. That apple crisp oatmeal looks SO good! It’s making me want to go back and have a second breakfast!

  21. I seriously have a ridiculous amount of kitchen appliances. Some people collect purses or shoes. I collect appliances. The biggest appliance I have is probably my juicer. the most ridiculous appliance – either my wireless electric cheese grater (with 3 different grating inserts) or my “Cocomotion” a hot chocolate maker. I love them all :)

  22. Hmm the biggest appliance I have is probably our family-sized George Foreman. Love that thing!

  23. Ooo I need a coffee grinder!! It makes coffee so much better!! I don’t really have any big appliances. My brother has a $400 coffee maker. He is crazy!

  24. Andy and I just ordered a coffee grinder too. Can’t wait to get it!

    Our biggest appliance is our margarita machine. We use it maybe twice a year because it’s HUGE

  25. I have a kitchen aid mixer but I also have a big rice cooker that we use a lot.

  26. yay i got a grinder for christmas! don’t you love it? i have a french press and an espresso machine so it requires different grinds. so convenient to do that at home.
