25 Homemade Coffee Creamers and Syrups (without the nasty additives)

‘Tis the season for the fanciest possible version of everything, and your hot beverage is no exception. Places like Starbucks have taken flavored coffees to whole new level. At my local grocery store, there’s an entire refrigerated unit dedicated to decadent flavored creamers. Unfortunately, those creamers are rife with chemicals, including artificial flavors and neurotoxins like aspartame and sucralose. You certainly aren’t giving someone a “treat” by putting that stuff in their coffee.

Sooooo….there’s no actual cream involved, nor is there any hazelnut mentioned in that chemistry project.

Growing up in southern Germany, I always looked forward to the Fall, one reason being that it meant enjoying this incredibly delicious German Zwiebelkuchen. Another reason – grape season. Traditionally Zwiebelkuchen is enjoyed with a glass of Federweisser, or grape must. Not being an alcohol drinker, I always enjoyed it with a glass of delicious freshly squeezed grape juice. Images courtesy of Wikipedia There are a few varieties of Zwiebelkuchen, depending which region you’re in.

Schwäbischer Zwiebelkuchen is typically round and deep, like quiche, though the flat varieties can also be found in bakeries throughout southern Germany. Note: 1) Use good quality bacon with a nice, smoky flavor for best results. Sweet Potato Casserole {Thanksgiving Side Dish} WOW!
