A Holiday Coffee Recipe from an Italian Grandma

Am I the only one who loves all thing Italian? I doubt it! 🙂

Hope you also love this delicious and easy spiced coffee recipe, perhaps with a holiday cookie, or when reading one of my sweet holiday romances.

This is an Italian recipe from my hometown of upstate New York.

While you’re sipping a cup of spiced coffee, let me offer a couple of sweet romance holiday books to relax with and enjoy! Readers are saying these books read like Hallmark movies!
