Here’s why you want to try Vietnamese egg coffee right now! It’s coffee and dessert and it takes about 5 minutes tops! As soon as I saw this on Bon Appétit, I knew I had to try it! We all need a fast dessert idea in our back pocket, right?
Today I join my dear friends Cindy Hattersley and Mary Ann Pickett to share our favorite finds of the week as we do every Sunday. We are all so saddened by the situation in Ukraine. I’ve included a link to where you can donate. I’m sure there are many organizations that are accepting donations, this is the one I donated to.
What is Vietnamese egg coffee?
It’s a silky concoction of a sweet creamy egg mixture on top of dark coffee. It’s strong coffee topped with whipped eggs sweetened with condensed milk.
What kind of Coffee do you use for Vietnamese Egg coffee?
What other kind of cofee can I use to make egg coffee?
Well, we don’t have this kind of press, so we used two shots of espresso. It makes it very easy and it was delicious. We are always improvising, because when I see something I want to try, I want to try it right away! You could also use a French Press.
What about using Raw Eggs?
It’s very important to use fresh eggs when making egg coffee.
What is the history of Egg Coffee?
Egg coffee was created by a man named Nguyen Giang while he was a bartender for a large hotel. In 1947 when there was a milk shortage, he got creative and invented the egg coffee. Today he has a cafe in Hanoi that’s still serving the popular egg coffee.Print

New favorite T-shirts and other finds from Lululemon
I am always in search of the perfect t-shirt. I only wear crew necks and I am very picky about the neck. I often wear t-shirts as a layering piece, so it’s very important the neckline works with sweaters, or whatever I’m wearing. These from Lululemon check all the boxes. I bought a long sleeve and two short sleeves, perfect for travel or workout wear. I recommend sizing down. They do run quite large.
These wool scarves are on sale for $30. I bought the pink/peach woven wool scarf to wear with my Everlane Mac Trench Coat. I also bought the tan woven wool scarf to wear with all my neutrals. Perfect for travel or for spring if you live where it’s cold.
Everyone has been talking about On shoes. This is the brand that Roger Federer wears. I got a pair by accident this week and I absolutely love them. What I did not realize about On shoes is how lightweight they are, making them the perfect travel shoe.
Patrick ordered a pair through Zappos right before leaving on a work trip. They arrived on Sunday and he called to say they are way too small. Hmmmmm, he inadvertently ordered a size 11 in women. I quickly stopped by Nordstrom and luckily they had a men’s size 11 and now we are both happy! I didn’t even realize are both a size 11.

Here’s a before & after using the Vivid Bright Preset
I use Lightroom where I have presets and all within one app, I can lighten the photo and a few other adjustments at the same time. On this photo, I selected Vivid Bright and then reduced the exposure slightly. I also used the straightening tool. Editing photos is very much a personal preference, but even when using a preset, you can adjust the exposure, contrast, and many other things to get the photo just the way you like it. And the best part is that you can do this on your phone in just a few seconds!
Our Hearts are with the People of Ukraine
I don’t need to tell you how sad and scared I am for the people of Ukraine. I’ve seen several people post about where you can donate. I’ve decided to follow Smitten Kitchen and donate to World Central Kitchen. @wckitchen is on the ground, feeding those who are fleeing Ukraine. A donation of any amount helps these efforts.
