Sweet Cream Dreams: Starting my Morning Right




1 ½ Cups of ground coffee
3 Tbsp. of ground cinnamon
6 Cups of water
Pour ingredients in to large glass jar. Stir well, soaking all of the grounds and mixing up the cinnamon.

Let stand in your refrigerator for 18-24 hours. I always make a double batch so that I don’t run out of the precious cold brew. There is a distinct taste difference if you don’t wait the allotted time.
You will need to strain the coffee from the jar. I use a real filter with an added paper coffee filter placed inside for double the straining power. I prefer the smooth taste with two filters- but you can definitely use the filter out of your coffee pot, a paper filter, or a french press.

Fill up a glass with ice. Pour your cold brew in and THEN- add in your favorite creamer.

As I continue on adding healthier options to my diet I try to pick ones that are DELICIOUS and non-GMO. Simple ingredients.

love the Left Field Farms Vanilla & Sweet Cream Coffee Creamers.

The Perfect Tech Gift

The Tech Gift of the Year!  Hands-down- the best invention I’ve found.  I know with all of the schedules- the holiday parties, school performances, and end of the year exams (for us teachers) that the mind can forget due dates, party supplies (cupcakes AGAIN?!?), and oh the grading and commenting for each lovely student.  Tile […] more


Give the Gift of Music with Fender

  Fender Play’s song-first approach to learning basics and then chords and rifts as opposed to theory based learning, focused on scale.  Jumping straight into music that I can recognize is instantly gratifying. Instant Gratification?!? MOM WIN! My Grandfather was the Leader of the Band.  He was with Glenn Miller and then moved on to […] more
