In my best memories from childhood, I would always find myself in the kitchen with my mom as she prepared a pot of traditional Viennexican coffee. The smell was intoxicating and often times the only thing that got me out of bed early on Saturday mornings. Now that I am a mother to three little ones, those days are long gone but not forgotten. Sometimes it feels like there is never enough time in a day for everything we want to do or be with our children. That’s why this recipe is so special to me- it brings back those cherished moments from when I was young and lets me experience them again with my own kids now. So grab your favorite mug and let’s get cooking!
