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?

Healthy Valentine’s Day *Kid Friendly* Menu Plan

Hi Guys!

I know how hard it is to come up with a healthy meal for my family, especially holiday meals. That’s why i’ve decided to write up a healthy menu plan for this Valentine’s Day.

Healthy valentines day

Before, for Valentine’s Day, we would most likely have donuts for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong i absolutely love a good donut here and there, but they aren’t healthy and they are packed full of sugar, and they don’t fill you up.

Instead, for a healthy breakfast option, how about Banana Oatmeal Pancakes!

You could even make them in a heart shaped mold, to make them more festive. What’s great about these pancakes is they are; sugar-free, oil- free, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

For lunch, the Banana Dog Bites are super yummy!

We have been making these for years, and all my kids love them. They are also super simple to make (only 3 ingredients)!

**If you are not a fan of peanut butter and bananas, you could do a tortilla roll up instead, with deli meat, cheese, and your favorite condiment (i love mustard on mine).**

Where we live Valentine’s Day is always chilly, so warming up with a hot bowl of soup always sounds like a good idea. This Cheeseburger Soup is a big hit with all of my children.

Packed with veggies, even a secret one that was blended up that my kids still don’t know about (Shhh!), it’s creamy, delicious, and can be made in a pressure cooker!!

Of course it’s Valentine’s Day we are talking about ,so i can’t forget about dessert. Chocolate Covered Strawberries will always be a classic Valentine’s Day dessert for me.

You can make them healthier by using a dark chocolate, and skipping out on the sprinkles.

I hope you have enjoyed this healthy sample menu for Valentine’s Day. What do you normally eat on Valentine’s Day?

January Favorites

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing all my favorite things from January.

Jan favs 2019

Water w/ lemons – In December I was loving water with cranberries in it, but in January lemons in my water were my jam!

Mothering From Scratch – This was such a good book, filled with valuable information about mothering. I highly recommend it! (While i was finding it on Amazon to link, i noticed it was on sale for $5, it is regularly priced at $15. What a great deal!)

Bullet Journaling – I love, love, love bullet journaling! Every morning in January i made time to spend bullet journaling. I have this bullet journal and i’m using these markers!

bullet journal 1

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation – This foundation is my new favorite, i bought it in December and have been using it ever since. It’s a little bit on the pricey side, but the coverage is amazing! It’s well worth the price in my opinion! (Tip: I recommend buying this at a beauty store {Ulta or Sephora} because Amazon’s price is like $20 more expensive!)

Running on my Treadmill – That is all i did in January for my work outs, was running on my treadmill!! I love having a treadmill, because there is no way i could go to a gym regularly or run outside regularly. It’s so convenient to have a treadmill at home.

Ordering on Costco.com – Costco will ship non-perishable items to your house in 2 days with free shipping on orders over $75! I really enjoy this option in winter months, where maybe i can’t get out of the house (snowy days) or the flu is going around and i don’t want to risk getting sick. I took advantage of online ordering twice last month!

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, & Nails Gummies – Although i don’t see a major difference yet, i think my fingernails have been growing a little more quickly. It’s only been a month, so i’m going to keep taking them and see what happens. Plus they taste yummy!

That’s all for my favorites for January. I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
