Copper Cow Coffee

Here at Fancy That we are serious coffee lovers and we are currently obsessed with Copper Cow Coffee’s Vietnamese Portable Pour Overs. What is Vietnamese coffee you ask? Well, it’s coffee grown in Vietnam and it’s usually paired with creamy sweetened condensed milk.

Copper Cow Coffee

The coffee comes in a pack of 5  pre-filled coffee filters and 5 packets of sweetened condensed milk. The way this portable system works is so cool!  All you need (in addition to the coffee) is a mug and hot water.

Copper Cow Coffee

First things first, heat up some water and grab a mug. Open the coffee filter pack, pop out the filter handles and place on your mug. We love how the filter fits purrrfectly on our cute cat mug from Pinky Up.

Slowly pour the hot water into the coffee filter.

Remove the filter and add the sweetened condensed milk.

And there you have it! A delicious cup of Vietnamese coffee – it’s like a hug in a mug. Aside from the deliciousness of the coffee, we love the portability! Keep it in your desk for a mid-day pick me up. Take it to the mountains and enjoy a hot cup after a day in the snow. Take it on your next plane ride and save yourself from bad air plane coffee. The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy!

Big News Today!

 

Happy Holidays, fancy friends!  I hope your holiday season was magical.  I am so grateful we were able to help so many of you with your holiday gifts and decor.  My team and I loved every minute of it!  

At the end of every year, I spend a few days looking back on the year and adjust my goals for the year to come.  Looking at the big picture rather than the day-to-day makes it so much easier to see emerging trends and opportunities.  There are big changes coming in 2018 and I am so incredibly excited for this new chapter of Fancy That!

My website – shopfancythat.com – is expanding with lots of really awesome stuff!  The next few months will be crazy busy as we add the following new features and products to the site:

  • signature customizable products – like mugs, wine glasses, tumblers
  • free domestic shipping everyday
  • local same day delivery on gift boxes
  • international shipping
  • custom designed party accents
  • gift + flower delivery with The Flower Bus
  • personal shopping service
  • branded gift boxes
  • employee recognition subscription program

Along with all the online changes there will also be a big change to the brick and mortar shoppe in Orenco Station.  Our last day in the space will be February 14th.  While I will miss seeing you everyday, it is the right time to make this change.  After a fantastic five years in Orenco, our lease is up for renewal and we are taking advantage of this opportunity to devote 100% of our time to the amazing growth our online shoppe has seen.  I am over the moon excited to see everything the future has in store for Fancy That.  We will still be able to chat in person about all the fancy parties and gifts you are giving in local pop up shops around town.  Follow our social media outlets to stay up-to-date with all our latest news as we shift from sprinkling fancy in Orenco to sprinkling fancy worldwide.   

Stay fancy,

Lisa




No Bake Egg Nog Cheesecake Recipe

Eggnog is a staple around our house during the holiday season. We drink it plain, pour it over our oatmeal, blend it up with ice cream…this time I’ve combined it with one of my other favorite things – cheesecake! Not only is this treat delicious, it’s easy to make and it will leave your oven free for the rest of your holiday feast!
These tasty bites are great to bring to a holiday party (add a splash of Brandy to the mix if you’re headed to an adult only party). Stop into Fancy That to pick up a pack of our awesome metallic baking cups! Presentation is everything at a holiday party and these cups will add a real wow factor to any table. We’ve got them in red, silver and gold.

Mini Eggnog Cheesecakes
Ingredients
Crust
1.5 packs graham crackers
1 stick melted butter
2 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Filling
2.5 8 oz packs cream cheese (room temperature)
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup eggnog
1/4 – 1/2 cup Brandy (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Whipping cream + sugar to taste
Recipe
For the crust: crush graham crackers into very fine crumbs – I used the food processor, but you could put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Stir in cinnamon, sugar and then the butter.For the filling: Using a mixer and a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in sweetened condensed milk, then the eggnog and then the Brandy (if using). Toss in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
Assembly
Line up your metallic baking cups and fill each about 1/2 way with cheesecake mixture, then add 1/2 tablespoon of graham cracker mixture to each cup, top the with more cheesecake. To finish add a dollop of whip cream to the top and sprinkle with any leftover graham cracker crumbs.
Chill the cups in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
Note: this is not a firm cheesecake, it will be fairly soft.
What’s your favorite Holiday dessert?
Happy no-baking!
