. . . as soon as I get close to Lien Road on Madison's east side. That's because of all the tastiness that's inside a new store called The Cinnamon Stick. Each and every aisle is stocked high with goodies like chocolates, honey, dried fruit and nuts, granola, hot sauces, soups, pastas, soooo many spices, farm fresh eggs, locally made brats, and so much more. The Cinnamon Stick should be your go-to shop if you love to bake, as they offer so many different types of flours (including gluten-free), sugars, decorative sprinkles, and more.
The owners, Jennifer and Steve, buy their products in bulk and then transfer them into smaller packages so that you can buy just the amount you need while still enjoying bulk pricing. I'm so happy the east side of Madison has a store like this! They're located at 4017 Lien Road. Click the link above to find their Facebook page for more information and updates.
I've been drinking coffee since I was 17 years old. It started as a way to stay awake at my early-morning nursing-home job after a late night cheering at high school football and basketball games. I didn't exactly love the taste of coffee at first, but it didn't take long before I was smitten!
Over the years, various health studies have said that coffee may not be very good for you, but lately it seems like there have been just as many studies that say "drink up!" Yes!!! Here's the latest such article I came across a few days ago, all about the health benefits of coffee!
Now, if you'll pardon me, it's time for another cup of Steep & Brew Highlander Grog!
