Homemade Gingerbread Coffee Creamer + Cuisinart Coffeemaker Giveaway

It's Day 6 of my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways!

Today is all about coffee and creamer and Cuisinart.  The best three "C's" in the world.

Have you been having fun with these giveaways?  I sure have!  We are hitting the halfway mark and today is a great one.  

First let's talk coffee creamer.  My life isn't complete without it.  I'm not mentally strong enough to drink my coffee black.  I have given birth to a child without drugs, yet I cannot choke down hot black coffee.  Don't judge.  

I need a little sweet cream in my drink to start my day.  And yes, I'm painfully aware many of my faithful readers are screaming at the screen right now, "it wasn't until a year ago that you even drank coffee!"

You're correct.  I was a late bloomer.

My relationship with Cuisinart is long and great.  They have forever been beyond gracious with me.  This past year when I asked them for a new coffeemaker for myself {our old one had died a slow, painful death} and yet another one to giveaway to my readers - there was about as much hestitation as my kids wanting another piece of candy.

I simply do not have enough words in my vocabulary for Cuisinart.  Great company, great people.  Oh, and great products!

I picked this 12 Cup Coffeemaker and Single-Serve Brewer.  Mainly because I'm greedy and wanted a coffeemaker that could do both things - brew a big 'ol pot and brew just a single cup.  Big 'ol pots are for when family is in town or Saturday mornings when both the husband and I are sitting around drinking our coffee like an 80 year old couple.  The single brewer is for most of my mornings during the week when I'm up before the chaos of my house.

I cannot fully express how great this coffeemaker is - and the husband - who can be rather picky about things also loves it.  

It has a brightly lit clock, a timer, a delayed brewing setting, it keeps the coffee at three different temperatures depending on how hot you like it, it's easy to clean and it's pretty slick looking too.

I'm a bit over the moon that one of you will win this.

But, hey!

I created a killer recipe too.  So, so, so many of you raved about my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer a few months back, that I did it again.

Behold, the fabulous Homemade Gingerbread Coffee Creamer.  Tis the season for all things Christmas.  It tastes like a gingerbread cookie!  I mixed together half and half with molasses, ground ginger, cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg a bit of sugar and vanilla extract.

If that combination right there doesn't get you excited for the holidays, I'm fairly certain that prehaps you are related to the Grinch.

Here's the thing.  If you lived close to me I'd hand deliver a batch of this delicious coffee creamer and the new coffeemaker to you.  Then I'd sit down and we'd chat and guzzle this great stuff down.

  3. Oh my goodness, this is the BEST giveaway gift!! I would absolutely keep it for my apartment for myself and sister to enjoy! I was JUST talking about how I would love to get a coffee maker that does an entire pot but also the option of a single cup. So crazy!! I would love to win this and then to try out the gingerbread coffee creamer to go along with my new coffee pot! I’ll still be making it now to go with my keireg coffee but I know it would taste even sweeter poured into coffee from my new coffee maker by Cuisinart ;)
