Breakfast with WI bloggers

I love Sundays, even ones that are dreary and drizzly like the one we are having today in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Before heading to breakfast with Karis and Jessica, I made pumpkin syrup. I was craving a pumpkin latte when I woke up. After seeing Jessica's post with the link to Julie's pumpkin syrup recipe, I knew adding the syrup to my drip coffee would satisfy my craving.

I had to add quite a bit of the syrup to my coffee to really get the taste to be pumpkin like. Once I had the perfect amount, it tasted great! A nice frothy pumpkin latte would have been better, but this was the next best thing.

I met fellow Wisconsin bloggers Karis and Jessica at Cafe Hollander in the Tosa Village for breakfast.

I had Banana French Toast and it was really yummy.

Caught Jessica in action instagramming!

It was so much fun to meet Jessica in person for the first time and to chat with her and Karis about blogs, our lives, etc.

Now I am off to Kohl's to see if I can find anything with the 30% off coupon I received. Not really in the shopping mood, but maybe I will be once I get there.


  1. It's funny, I wasn't really in a shopping mood, but after leaving brunch this morning I ended up stopping at Target, Penzey's and the MF farmers' market. I was at Kohl's yesterday redeeming my 30% :)

  2. Aah I love this post!! I am so glad we met for brunch today!!!!! :D We will have to do this again soon!

  3. Well, I am going to have to try making that pumpkin syrup. That looks awesome. Since we open cans of pumpkin around here for pumpkin waffles, I can use some of the leftover to make syrup.

    If you want something latte like, you could heat your milk (almond) in the microwave, add it to your coffee, then add your syrup. There won't be foam, and it isn't steamed, but it might come close to your lattes.

  4. If you ladies are ever in the southern Wisconsin area, I would love to meet up! I am also in Madsion every once in a while, do you guys ever head that way? Badger tailgates?? holler! :)
