Hello everyone, I'm Cindi, aka "domestic goddess", and I consider myself to be a country girl at heart. I'm also a mother to 3 daughters, and I have 1 granddaughter. Being a country gal, I enjoy preparing down-home country meals for my family. I also enjoy sharing recipes with others, collecting cookbooks, reading about the paranormal, and spending time with my family.

Lovely and Luscious Mug of Coffee

Mirj at food.com, inspired me to make this coffee, but I tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. Also, instead of using boiling water, I just added cold water and the instant coffee in my mug, then placed the mug in a 900 watt microwave, and nuked it for 1 minute & 66 seconds.

Lovely and Lucious Mug of Coffee

1-1/2 tsp. Taster's Choice House Blend Instant Coffee
1-1/2 tsp. Taster's Choice Hazelnut Instant Coffee
11 ounces boiling water
1 ounce (2 tablesp.) liquid hazelnut coffee creamer
2 ounces (4 tablesp.) heavy whipping cream (*See note)

Place both coffees in bottom of a tall coffee mug.
Add boiling water to the mug, and stir.
Add the hazelnut coffee creamer and whipping cream,
and stir.

Yields: 14 ounces of coffee

*Note: When making this coffee, I used those individual single serve packets of instant coffee, which you can purchase either 7 or 20 in a box, and each packet equals 1-1/2 teaspoons. Also, be sure you use real cream in this recipe. Do not substitute using milk or skim milk!!

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

I just had to share this picture of our daughter Jenny, and her furbaby boy Rex. Jen had a good crop of pumpkins in her garden this year, which she shared her pumpkins, as well as her butternut squash, with her family. Seeing all those pumpkins put a smile upon my daughter's face.
