Sometimes I get into a coffee shop and my mind goes blank.  I want something new and delicious, but lattes are always my default order because I understand them.  I’ve had other coffee drinks and loved them, but I’m overwhelmed staring at a coffee drink menu.  I’m hoping the descriptions above will help.

Subscriber Robyn D. recommends her new favorite coffee drink from a barista in Cambridge – an Oat milk Cardamom Latte.  Begin with espresso – froth some oat milk, add honey and a touch of cardamom.  It is our new house favorite and we make it in this Capresso Frother, $59.


If your family are sriracha fans, the Huy Fong Foods brand, pictured above, has been suffering production problems, causing a severe shortage in Sriracha.  The shortage is expected to last quite a while, so the time may have come to find another brand.  A food blog I follow has found several boutique brands of sriracha hot sauce that make very respectable versions.


Yellowbird Sauce is based in Austin, and this organic Sriracha gets rave reviews.  A multipack of three is $36.00.









A sriracha sauce that’s been sold in Thailand for years is from the Shark brand.  Apparently, chefs love it.  It comes in different strengths.  $14.99 for a 25 oz bottle of medium strength.


If you want to find the best in the supermarket, Tabasco Sriracha sauce seems to be the one. $9.29 for a 20 oz bottle.
