Designing Our French Inspired Kitchen and Bath: The Kohler Store

Greetings everyone!  Things have been progressing behind the scenes as we continue to design our French inspired home.  As you might have already noticed; we have been on a short break from blog posting. We have been working our way through some unforeseen design obstacles.  The bidding process has again resumed and we too will now pick up our blog postings right where we left off.

Today we want to share a few photographs from a recent trip to The Kohler Store in Glenview, Illinois just outside of Chicago.  For those of you interested in visiting, you can find the Kohler Store at:

The Kohler Store (Chicago Area Locations)
1180 N. Milwaukee Avenue
Glenview, IL 60025

For your added shopping pleasure, you can also visit the Abt showroom right next door!  See our trip to the Abt showroom, home to all appliances and electronics.

Thirsty Thursday: French White Hot Chocolate

Good Morning Everyone!

The weekend (and college football gameday) is almost here!  If you are like us, then you will be partaking in tail-gate events.

Every week we have a new gameday drink.  Because the weather is a little colder this week, we have decided to go with a French White Hot Chocolate.  Our version is a slight modification from a Cosmo Chic Cocktail we heard a few years ago.  Now this is our first Thirsty Thursday, so please go easy on our food photography.

French White Hot Chocolate

8 oz. Cold Skim Milk
1 oz. Chambord
1 oz. Creme de Coca
1/2 oz. Godiva White Chocolate
1 1/2 oz. Monin White Chocolate
2 Roasted Marshmallows
Grated Bissingers Dark Chocolate to Taste

Make sure your milk stays as cold as possible.  We typically keep our frothing pitcher in the refrigerator so that the milk stays cold after pouring and prior to steaming.

Keep steaming your milk until it becomes hot and foamy.
Once your milk is ready, add the remaining ingredients to your frothing pitcher.  Stir until well blended and pour into your favorite hot chocolate mug.

We toasted a few marshmallows under the broiler and added them to the hot chocolate.

A few dark chocolate shavings and this drink is ready to enjoy on any cold day!
We hope you found some inspiration in this first installement of our Thirsty Thursday series.  Now lets drink to your teams success (unless they are playing ours!).
Have a great day!
Tonya and Rob
