Things I’m Loving

Hi Guys!

It has been awhile since i’ve shared some of my current favorites, so today i thought i would share some things i’m loving right now.

Books:

The Heart Remembers & The Far Side Of The Night by Jan-Philipp Sendker – He is my favorite author and i love all his books. I recently bought both these books and i’m loving that he has been releasing new books.

Essential Oils:

Rainy Days ~ Focus, Focus, Focus ~ Pollen Buster – These have been my go-to oils lately. I love the smell of Rainy Days. I’ve been using Focus, Focus, Focus in our homeschool room. Pollen Buster has been helping with my seasonal allergies lately.

I’m also loving diffusing a mix of; orange, spearmint, and eucalyptus lately. It smells so good!

Podcasts:

Happy Homebirth, Dateline, and The Bible Binge – I just recently started listening to podcasts. I don’t listen very often, maybe once a month or so, but when i do listen these are the different podcasts i like.

Apps/Websites:

The Daily Grace Co, Jane, Her Hearts Co, and Albertsons – I know this is a weird mix of websites/apps, especially since I’ve added in a grocery store app, but i love that the Albertsons app has tons of coupons and deals. Jane is always where i go for cute clothing, nail wraps, and jewelry. The Daily Grace Co always has amazing deals on great Bible studies, and Her Hearts Co is the place to shop for homeschool mom gear.

Drinks:

Black coffee and Blackberry Lemonade – I love these blackberry lemonade water enhancer packets from Walmart. So Good! I’m also really loving black coffee. I started drinking it because of fasting, but now i actually enjoy it.

YouTube:

Dad Challenge Podcast, Bikini Body Mommy, and Farmhouse On Boone – The Dad Challenge Podcast is bringing awareness to the exploitation of children by family vloggers on YouTube, some of his videos are hard to watch. I’m currently on day 25 of challenge 10 on Bikini Body Mommy. Farmhouse On Boone is always sharing great recipes.

Those are just a few of the things i’m loving right now. What are you loving right now?

Coffee Recipes

Hey Guys!

As you all know, i love coffee! With this whole Covid-19 thing going on i stopped going to coffee shops and started making my own fancy coffee at home. Today i’m sharing 2 of my favorite recipes.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla Syrup
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Cold coffee
  • Caramel sauce

Add the vanilla syrup to the bottom of your cup. Top with ice, milk and coffee. Finally add a drizzle of caramel sauce to the top and enjoy! So yummy & easy to make!

Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Latte (perfect for Fall)

  • 6 cups of coffee (cold)
  • 5 cups of whole milk
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • whipped cream (optional)

Pour coffee, whole milk, and heavy cream into crockpot. In a mixing bowl, mix together pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Add pumpkin mixture to crockpot, and whisk to combine. Cook on high for 2 hours. Then ladle into a cup, add some whipped cream and cinnamon on top and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy these 2 recipes as much as i do. What’s your favorite way to enjoy coffee; hot, cold or blended?
