Sip Your Coffee and Eat It Too - Cooking with Community® coffee

How to Cook with Coffee


Taste The Difference Family Makes™ 
Community® coffee

Dark Roast Signature Blend
Community® coffee


 Community® coffee is the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the United States of America. Cap Saurage began selling coffee in his small country store located in Baton Rouge, LA back in the early 1900's. They produce high-quality blends which include 100% Arabica coffee beans in a variety of delicious flavors. You can purchase Community® coffee whole beans, ground, single-serve, and tea.

What a scrumptious idea! Why not consider adding Community® coffee  to spices and herbs to create savory marinates for meats. Or for the sweet-tooth lovers, you can create delicious brownie recipes, cakes, frostings, and puddings. As a special gesture, Community® coffee is sharing a delicious extra chocolaty brownie recipe with Mocha Gonache Frosting.






Grandma W’s Extra Chocolaty Frosted Mocha Brownies

Brownies:
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons strong brewed Community® coffee, cooled
¼ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup white whole wheat or all-purpose flour



Mocha Ganache Frosting:
2/3 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup strong brewed Community® coffee

Medium Dark Roast - House Blend
Community® coffee


Directions 

Preheat oven to 300°. In medium microwave-safe bowl, melt butter in microwave. In separate medium bowl, whisk together sugar and cocoa. Add sugar mixture, coffee and salt to butter; stir until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla to the butter-sugar mixture; mix in completely. Stir in flour just until combined.



Pour into an 8” X 8” baking pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Bake in middle of oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out moist, with crumbs attached. Don’t over bake. Cool completely in pan.


Frosting

In medium bowl, place chocolate chips. In microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl, heat coffee to a simmer in microwave. Pour coffee over chocolate and stir until completely smooth. Let cool about 1 hour. Beat with mixer for 1-2 minutes or until fluffy. Spread over cooled brownies and let frosting set. Cut into 16 squares.


Notes:
  • Coffee in both the brownie and frosting heightens chocolate flavor.
  • The frosting has a mocha flavor and could be left off … but it really makes the brownie!
  • White whole wheat flour has all the nutrition of whole wheat with a less assertive flavor and a texture similar to all purpose flour.


We hope you will give Grandma W’s Extra Chocolaty Frosted Mocha Brownies with Mocha Ganache Frosting a test run in your home.

My Contribution

I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and baked it in a 9×9 nonstick baking pan.  My brownies are thinner than Grandma W's. The girls and I enjoyed the dark roast flavor from Community® coffee.

A Sean McNamara Film - HOOVEY available on DVD and BLU-Ray!

Hoovey - Rated PG  SRV $15Starring Patrick Warburton, Lauren Holly, Cody Linley and Alyson Stoner


"Hoovey is an inspiring and powerful movie!" 
"5 out of 5 doves" 
~ Approved for All Ages 
The Dove Foundation



Synopsis:
When promising high school basketball player Eric “Hoovey” Elliott collapses on the court, doctors discover a life-threatening brain tumor. Hoovey will survive the high-risk surgery, but at what cost? Can he relearn to walk, read, even to see clearly? The road is long, and meanwhile overwhelming medical bills threaten to undo everything his parents, Jeff and Ruth, have taken a lifetime to build. With seemingly no one to turn to—but with tenacity and love born of faith—an entire family regains its footing. Hoovey learns to read again, to dribble and shoot a basketball and, finally, stepping out in faith, he’s back on court for another shot at his dream . . 

YouTube Official Movie Trailer - HOOVEY


Social Connection: Hoovey the Movie. Interview with Hoovey's Dad!





My Thoughts

"Nothing is Impossible with God!"

Just because you are a Christian it does not  limit you from becoming part of the "Bad Things  Do Not Happen to Christians Club!" The Elliot family learns this lesson very well in the Sean McNamara Film called Hoovey. Eric "Hoovey" Elliot(Cody Linley) and his family are great examples of how to put your faith to work and trust God when tragedy happens in a seemingly unending domino effect. The Elliot family really gets tested and their strength and endurance through it all is miraculous. What a thrill! Hoovey will have you on the edge of your seat. Moms might need a tissue or handkerchief handy for this one!

I invite you to watch the video clip of Hoovey presented by Echolight studios on YouTube. My family and I are in complete agreement about the rating of Hoovey and recommend it highly for families, church libraries, and people that work with youth. It is refreshing to come across good, clean movies like Hoovey that have great moral lessons for us all.

PURE FLIX presents PIRATE'S CODE: THE ADVENTURES OF MICKEY MATSON


Pirate's Code: The Adventures of Mickey Maston DVD
In this follow up to Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure, Mickey Matson is at it again; this time pitted against the evil Admiral Ironsides and his gang of pirates who are intent on destroying civilization.  They're new invention, the Tesla Coil, is a weapon of mass destruction that will send an electromagnetic pulse throughout the world, destroying every electronic device in existence.  With the help of a secret organization, Mickey and his best friend Sully embark on a mission to stop the pirates from taking over a submarine and stealing the last part needed to complete their devastating weapon.  If Admiral Ironsides succeeds in his plan, civilization will be sent back to the Stone Age.  It's a race against time, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. 


Purchase a copy of The Adventure of Mickey Maston and the Cooperhead Treasure

803145: The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead  Treasure The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure
By Cinedigm Entertainment Holdings

When descendants of a treasonous band of Civil War villains known as Copperheads build a device from ancient times, young Mickey Matson and his friend Sully race to unravel clues left by his grandfather. Can they outsmart the evil conspiracy in time to find the three objects that power the machine---and prevent the destruction of our nation? Dove approved. (PG.) 93 minutes.


Pirate's Code, The Adventures of Mickey Matson
If you have not previously viewed The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Cooperhead Treasure there is no reason to fret! The Adventures of Mickey Matson: Pirates Code is a completely new flick that does not need a recap of the Cooperhead Treasure to enjoy it!

I have a wide range of ages for my children in my home, beginning with age nine to twenty-two. They can be very critical and picky. They won't sit still to watch just any ole movie either. I am happy to admit that they really enjoyed it and give it a BIG Thumbs Up!


The Adventures of Mickey Matson: Pirates Code immediately held our attention.  Did you notice the word "pirates" in the title? This modern pirate slash special ops mission flick is filled with adventure along with funny comical remarks and gestures through out. Mickey(Derek Brandon) and Sully(Francesca Derosa) work well together. And, there is Christopher Lloyd known for Back to the Future(1985). It was great to be able to sit down and not worry about cursing, nudity or other unnecessary additions which many secular movies feel they need to keep you entertained.


Wholesome does not mean BORING! If you are looking for wholesome and fun entertainment for the entire family, please consider The Adventures of Mickey Matson: Pirates Code on DVD. It a fun movie to invite the gang over for safe viewing. There is zero nudity and zero bad language. We give it our THUMBS UP!
