Coffee Mod: Cinnamon


So. I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of certain types of coffees. Including some flavored coffees. One of my recent favorites is a non-sweet “cinnamon-roll” type of coffee.

And so I decided to try to make my own variation. It turned out pretty well!

Basically, I’ve been putting about a 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon into an individual-brew cup. (I have some of those reusable k-cup pod thingies.) And then I’ve been brewing the coffee. And voila! It tastes like cinnamon coffee.

You should try it!

Have a great evening!

Roast Chicken Drumsticks


Tonight, I once more made a dinner with chicken drumsticks. (They’re still inexpensive.)

For the recipe tonight, instead of making soup, I roasted them with a bit of seasoned butter. They turned out quite nicely.


  1. Chicken drumsticks (Skin on)
  2. 2-3 Tbsp Butter (I used salted this time, and therefore did not include more salt in the recipe)
  3. 2-3 cloves of garlic (minced) (1 clove per Tbsp of butter)
  4. 1 tbsp(ish) lemon juice
  5. Large pinch of Basil
  6. Larger sprinkle of Parsley
  7. 2 Shakes of paprika (separated)


  1. Preheat oven to about 425 f.
  2. Soften butter
  3. Mix butter with the garlic, lemon juice, and herbs
  4. Rinse chicken, pat dry, place in a baking pan.
  5. Put seasoned butter underneath the skin of the chicken, and on top
  6. Sprinkle the chicken with more lemon juice and a touch more paprika
  7. Bake until chicken is thoroughly prepared (juices run clear, internal temperature appropriate, etc. For me, I cooked it for about an hour. That may have been overkill. But it worked.)
  8. Enjoy! I also cooked up some rotini to go with.
