Gingerbread Coffee Creamer

Today I tried a new recipe.  Gingerbread coffee creamer.    I got the recipe from food.com I added 1 cup powdered milk to the recipe, as I like mine extra creamy. 

  • 2 cups non-dairy powdered coffee creamer or 2 cups powdered nonfat dry creamer or 2 cups powdered coffee creamer
  • 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend or 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon clove

Directions:

    1. Blend well in a blender.
 
    You will see specks of the spice in the mixture.  I have already tried this recipe and I thought it turned out great.  I think I really like making all these flavored coffee creamer.
    I will leave you all with another fall picture.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer

100_7441

I thought I would share with you all my recipe for pumpkin pie spice coffee creamer.  I got the original recipe from http://drink.betterrecipes.com/pumpkin-pie-spice-coffee-creamer.html  I have altered it a little to suit our taste.  I use 1 cup plain non dairy coffee creamer, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup powdered milk and 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice mix.  Mix together with a whisk. After mixing,   I put the mixture in my coffee grinder and grind it up a little finer than it already is, just to make sure everything is incorporated.    This creamer goes wonderful with the pumpkin spice coffee I told you all about yesterday.  This jar is for Jess, per request.  We will be going down on Saturday for her baby shower. 

I have clothes to get on the line and school to start so I guess I better get busy.  I hope you all enjoy your day and God bless.

Lilac Bush

Our lilac bush has lots of buds on it. YEAH!  If all goes well, it will have lots of beautiful, sweet smelling flowers soon.  We have a small bush we just planted a few years ago at the edge of the garden and it is full of buds too.  I love spring.   I think our rain has stopped for a few days.  It is still very cloudy but the forecast is for the sun to come peeping through this afternoon.  It is already warmer than it was all day yesterday so that is a good sign.   We are hoping to do some more outside work after school.  We have been trying to start school a little earlier so that we can be finished around lunch.  Then we have the afternoon for work and play.  It seems to be working out well so far.

Yesterday, while the girls were at their piano lessons, I went into our local thrift store-Angels in the Attic.  It operates entirely on donations and volunteers.  All the profit each month is given to help local needs.  It is amazing.  They have moved 3 times because they keep growing.  The last time they moved, they purchased the building and in about 2 years had it paid off.   Since all workers are volunteer they have very little expense.  It has really helped our community.  The lady who thought it up is a Christian and tells everyone she can “It is all God”.  Anyway I said all that to say this.  Many years ago, my sister-in-law gave Hubby a coffee cup.  He loves this cup and uses it every morning.  Well, guess what I found.  One that looks just like it at Angels for 25 cents.  How exciting!  This morning I put my coffee in the new cup so that our cups matched.  Cute!  Ialso found this pretty glass.  I love old dishes and this glass just so wanted to come home with me. 

I better get busy.  It’s almost time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
