Coffee is one of my favorite foods and flavors. From chocolate covered beans to a steaming cup of freshly brewed drip, I love it all -- so it only seems natural that I love cooking with coffee. Whether coffee is a spice or a seasoning or just a flavor additive, the roasty-sweet flavor enhances braised and stewed meats, brings out the sweetness of other spices (cinnamon and cardamom, for example) and adds a rich depth to chocolate and other desserts. Here are 5 of my favorite coffee-based recipes, both sweet and savory, to inspire and delight your sense. All naturally gluten free, these recipes are absolutely a must try! Happy National Coffee Day!
