Keurig K250 Review

One of the best single-serve coffee makers, Keurig K250 provides you with larger brew sizes, multiple brew settings, and multiple coffee flavors. It uses just a one-touch operation and allows you to control your coffee as you wish. It provides you with convenience and flexibility and is quick to brew a large cup of coffee in just a matter of minutes.

Here are some pros and cons of using this model:

  • Pros:
    • It can brew coffee size equivalent to 30 oz. with the help of K-carafe which are nothing but bigger coffee pods.
    • It provides you option to choose a stronger brew setting
    • You have option of over thousands of flavors
    • You can use it to make several drinks like hot chocolate, coffee, tea, etc.
    • You can also use ground coffee to brew a cup of coffee inside it.
    • It also includes a touchscreen and allows you to perform various actions with just one-touch.
  • Cons:
    • You can only use K-cups by Keurig to brew your coffee.
    • It has a smaller water reservoir with only 40 oz. capacity.

Summary

Keurig K250 is a good option for all those people who like to have a big mug of coffee every now and then and want something easy to operate on a daily basis. Its touchscreen system makes it easy to choose the brew size and settings and start the brew cycle making it even more convenient to make your coffee.

It is quick and the numerous K-cups flavors allow you to try various coffee flavors and since it has recently introduced K-cup 2.0, you can use ground coffee to brew too and choose the strength which you want but beware because ground coffee ends up brewing a very strong coffee. Although it does have a few drawbacks like you cannot use other manufacturer’s coffee pods or that it comes with only 40 oz. The reservoir which can brew 2-3 normal sized cups of coffee, its features make up for all these setbacks quite easily. At just $100, this is quite a deal and one of the single-serve coffee machine with so many features.…

Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cookies

This coming Monday is President’s Day so in honor of dear old George, I am posting a great recipe for Cherry Chocolate Cookies handed to me by my friend Brigitte. Yum.

They are easy to make, delicious to eat, and everyone needs a reason to indulge in something sweet. Well, not everyone, because I often eat without any rhyme or reason, just because foods are tasty and satisfying! Who really needs a reason?

There are ways to make this recipe a little healthier and weight conscious appropriate: replace 1/4 or 1/2 of the butter with cherry applesauce, but beware that the texture might not be so delightful.

Applesauce is a better replacement for oil. Also, skip out on the drizzling of the icing. You could also eliminate the kiss, but in doing so you are breaking my heart. 🙂

Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cookies

1 c. confectioners’ sugar
1 c. softened butter
2 tsp. maraschino cherry liquid
1/2 tsp. almond extract
3-4 drops red food coloring
1/2 c. maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
48 milk chocolate kisses (use dark to make it more heart healthy)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups unbleached flour

Icing: Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 2-3 Tsp. water, and 1 1/2 tsp. almond extract.

1. Unwrap kisses (duh) and preheat oven to 350*.
2. Combine sugar, butter, cherry liquid, almond extract, and food coloring, blending well.
3. Add flour and salt and mix well.

6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, remove, cool, and drizzle with icing.
