Homemade Coffee Creamer. My friends tell me the one thing they can’t give up is their flavored coffee creamer.

Homemade Coffee Creamer

I can understand. Creamy, sweet, smooth, with all sorts of different flavors to choose from. The problem is the ingredients. Have you ever read what’s in those bottles? They are full of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils. So if you’re hooked on store-bought creamer then today’s your day. Next time you have friends over for a gathering, make a few batches of homemade coffee creamer, put them in cute bottles and have a coffee bar.

A great alternative to regular coffee is herbal coffee. *Since posting these recipes in September 2010, I have developed a few new recipes: Caramel Coffee Creamer and Honey Vanilla Coffee Creamer, Sugar Free and Dairy Free Coffee Creamer **Teeccino contains barley, so if you need to avoid gluten an organic decaf would be a better option. Pumpkin Spice Latte. Every year around this time the world seems to go crazy for Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes Photo Source The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes are lovely… But you can make them at home And I’d like to think my make-at-home version wins Why?

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Because you can make them vegan at home, if you so choose. And the ones you purchase are generally made with fake, sugary, pumpkin-flavored syrups, not real pumpkin puree. It should be noted that this is a natural latte, made with real pumpkin puree and real pumpkin pie spice. Since some people enjoy a daily dose of HFCS, you make lattes at home and can control what goes into your latte. Another reason the at-home version wins is because you could go into the poorhouse if you like your coffee as much as I like mine buying these specialty drinks. I bet the cost per cup of the homemade latte is less than a quarter and probably even less. Far less than the $4 coffee shop lattes and the cheapskate in me wants to make things at home whenever possible. Most gawked all-time. Most gawked all-time - page 2. My Kitchen is Perfect.

Out of the Campfire, into the Oven: Smores Pie

The toasted marshmallow, the melted chocolate, the crunch of the graham cracker. You put them together and it’s bliss. We love them so much, we eat them year round, we’ve even grilled marshmallows in our wood burning fireplace, over our gas stove, and made them in the microwave in a pinch. So naturally a s’mores pie would be the next logical step ; ) And it couldnt’ be easier. I started with making the graham cracker crust and baking it until golden. You could even take more shortcuts and use a pre-made graham cracker crust and use pre-packaged pudding {you’d need 8 snack packs for that} What you’ll need: 1 sleeve of honey graham crackers – 9 crackers 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/3 cup dark brown sugar pinch salt 7 tablespoons unsalted butter – melted 1 large package of chocolate pudding {+ ingredients to make} 8 ounces whipped cream topping 10 ounces marshmallows What to do: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

We’re eating a chilled “pie” made of layers of fudgy coffee brownies, rich airy peanut butter mousse, crumbled Reese’s peanut butter cups and finished with a drizzle of ganache.
