Homemade Coffee Creamer

It maybe the end of August but our high for today is only suspose to be 73, I have the A/C off and the windows open, enjoying a soft, cool breeze. This isn't our normal late August weather at all, but I'm not complaining, I'm planning. Making baking lists, you know those recipes you want to keep for cooler days, planning ahead to the holidays....yes, it's that time again. Fall brings so many special things, like festivals, pumpkins and yummy scented candles. I'm a sucker for fall candles! Another fall treat is homemade coffee creamer. I don't know about you, but I drink coffee each morning, all year round but it sure does taste better in fall and winter. Once in awhile I like to add a flavored creamer so spice up my morning and this one is my favorite! I'm cheap, I'll admit it so when I can make something and save money, I'm all over it!

Gingerbread Coffee Creamer
2 c. non dairy creamer
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. ginger
1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cloves
Blend well. Place in a jar or other air tight container. To use: place 1 tsp. to coffee or tea. Enjoy!

This recipe can be changed to your liking by mixing up the spices for different blends. It also makes a nice gift. I think I'll have a cup of coffee and take myself a little break on the tree swing and enjoy the breeze. Happy Sunday!

Oh my sweet girl! You make me yearn for Fall with your great ideas. Wish it was cooler here though. We're still fighting humidity and storms because of it. I can't wait to open the windows and take in the fresh air too. My a/c hasn't been turned off much lately. Thanks for the great recipe. I don't take creamer in my tea, but I'm sure Sister S will love this in her coffee. xxoo

Love that recipe!

You asked about my header - I used Picasa to make my header and I did the 3 column layout using the instructions found on The Cutest Blog on the Block. They have the easiest instructions I've seen.

I like your header too!
