Silly me to share a coffee cream recipe, as I am not a HUGE coffee fan. But my husband is and he likes cream in his coffee. I ran out one day. Not a bit deal, really, BUT I wanted to have it for him. So I made this. It was good. I actually have had a few cups of coffee so I could have the cream. OK, so, my coffee may be more cream than coffee, but whatever……I am OK with that. You drink yours how you like it and I will drink mine how I like it (mine will just get colder faster….).
Go to Cookin’ with Super Pickle to find a nice selection of different Homemade Coffee Cream Recipes. Let me know what you try!!! I would love to hear about it!!! The ones that look good to me are ~ Caramel Vanilla, Peppermint Mocha (of COURSE) and Salted Caramel Mocha.
I followed the base recipe found here and followed the “Vanilla” Flavor idea. (I did skip the 1 tsp. xanthan gum, however.) I used skim milk and I added a vanilla bean (scraped the lovely inside out 1st. The vanilla bean startled my husband when it poured out into his coffee…….funny.) along with the vanilla extract.
I will make this again and again. Let me know what you think about Homemade Coffee Cream. Have you made it before? You will try it sometime?? Will it turn YOU into a coffee drinker???? Did you like it if you made it????
Now for a Lunch Box Recipe or a Lunch At Home Recipe or a Simple Dinner Recipe.
*If your kids are picky (most of mine are) then leave the red peppers off theirs. I usually don’t have salami in the house, so I leave that off. I have also used turkey in place of the ham with GREAT results. SO, add and take away as your family’s tastes allow!
* IF your tortillas are hard (as in….not super duper fresh) then wrap in a paper towel or plastic wrap and warm slightly in the microwave, it will make rolling MUCH easier!
*As far as a “dipper” goes ~ salsa would work as well! Or ranch dressing or whatever type of sauce your family enjoys.
