Did You Know. . . .

. . .I LOVE MY COFFEE CREAMER?  I reeeeally do! I love it even more when I can get it on sale.  The Bailey's creamer that I have pictured here, is normally $2.49 a bottle at Martin's, Food Lion, and/or Wal-Mart.  Martin's had it on special one week for their savings card members for $1.50 a bottle.  My sister and I each had $1.00 off coupons, bringing the cost of each bottle to $.50 each.  WOO HOO!  Needless to say, we stocked up!  These freeze really well too!

Did you know that your coffee creamer is not just for coffee anymore.  I use my coffee creamer in place of milk when I make pancakes, French Toast, waffles, desserts that require milk, and so many other things...it gives it an extra boost of flavor. 

You can also use the powdered creamers as well:

*Mix two parts creamer to one part cold milk, add sugar and vanilla if desired. Whip until stiff; it makes flavored whipped topping for desserts.

*Add 5 teaspoons of coffee creamer to a cup of water, and it can be a replacement for milk in recipes.

*Use the liquid creamers to thin down ice cream when making milk shakes, home made blizzards, or add to smoothies. You can also use both liquid & powder for malts and hot cocoa.

Do you use flavored creamers in more than just your coffee?
