Recipes that are delicious and that always work!

You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.

The Tassimo January Challenge

I was recently sent a box from the Tassimo people (as one of their blogging partners) of their Twinings Green Tea with Mint.  I was quite surprised to see it as it is not something which I have been able to find in our local shops.  We mostly use our Tassimo machine for hot chocolate.

It was nice to know that there are more than just coffee and hot chocolate T discs available for the machine.   Green tea, is a well known antioxidant drink and supposed to be great for cleansing and general good health.  We found this particular tea to have a very light and refreshing flavour.  The mint flavour was not overpowering in the least and we both enjoyed it very much indeed.  (You can correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think Green Tea has any caffeine in it, so it's okay for us to drink it.  We're Mormons and as such we don't drink Caffeinated tea or coffee or . . . for that matter, alcohol.)

It's really nice to know that there are some healthy alternatives out there to regular teas and coffees.   We just love our Tassimo machine.

Did you know that Tassimo has a YouTube channel???  It does.  You can find it here.  


Unfortunately I am not able to embed more than one video on my blog at a time for some reason, but I find them all quite delightful.  This is the one on how to make Sparkly Sweet Iced Green Tea.   Delicious!

Thanks Tassimo for introducing us to another delicious alternative to the usual hot drinks that people enjoy.  It's makes me happy to know that I am also doing something healthy for myself at the same time!


  1. I enjoy your blog and recipes. I do think green tea has caffeine in it though less that coffee. I don't drink coffee or black tea, but will sometimes have a green tea as a bit of pick me up. I'm sure there is decaffeinated green tea available.
