About Me



Welcome to Coffee and Cannolis! 

For the most part this is a food blog, but life is more than food, so every once in awhile I'll dabble in other things that are important to me. Family. Home projects. Life in general. One thing you probably won't see posted here is fashion or beauty advice, but who knows, maybe one day I'll actually learn how to dress myself and put on makeup!

What's in a name? 

What does Coffee and Cannolis mean? It's about balance - keeping yourself going, while indulging a little. Coffee for fuel, and a little cannoli to relax with and indulge in.


What can I tell you about me?

My name is Angie and minus four years in college, I have lived in St. Louis my entire life. I've been married to my husband (Rob) since 2007, and we have two amazing children. Tyler and Gwyneth. Those three people are the light of my life. We built a new house in 2016, and with that comes more home projects than I expected. Move in ready does not mean personal style ready!  I also work full time in Marketing, so this blog is purely just a hobby.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
