Homemade Caramel Latte- Folgers Flavors

Folgers 6

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Mornings here can be described as many things. Sleepy. Busy. Lazy. Fun. Loud. Quiet. The list goes on. You never know what you’ll get during a morning at our house. 

One thing is for sure. Coffee is always involved. My husband enjoys his straight up, no frills, plain and simple- black. Me on the other hand, I like to change it up often. 

There was a time when I liked to add sweetener and milk. There was another time when I like to add sweetener and creamer. I get tired of things being the same sometimes so I like to find ways to create new coffee drinks.

The day I discovered milk frothers was a life-changing day (thanks to my mom!). Homemade lattes entered my life and it has never been the same.

These cool little bottles have also found a way to my heart! Folgers Flavors can be used at home or on-the-go and don’t require refrigeration. Because I don’t like to be a creature of habit, I’m thankful that Folgers Flavors come in 4 different flavors (Hazelnut, Mocha, Caramel, and Vanilla) to match any of my many moods. Most recently, it’s been a caramel mood.

In case you needed to know.

It’s easy to take your coffee and make it into a latte. Folgers Flavors make it even easier. You can use a little or use a lot, hot or iced, the choice is yours to create your own flavored coffee.

To make a Homemade Caramel Latte, here’s my steps. I started with plain black coffee. Not exactly espresso, but I’m not a straight black coffee drinker so it’s pretty strong for me.

Add a good squeeze of the Folgers Flavors Caramel Enhancer. I didn’t even add sweetener!

I frothed some of my favorite creamer and poured that on the coffee. Then topped it off with a little whipped cream and caramel sauce.

It doesn’t get much tastier than that for your morning! No matter what’s going on, I find peace when I’m drinking my lattes.

Oatmeal in Your Coffeemaker?! + $10 Giveaway!


I’d love to tell you that breakfast time at my house is a wonderful, peaceful time, but to be honest, it’s a little less than tranquil.

We aren’t exactly morning people around here so if you were to take a peek into our morning, you would see lots of squinty eyes and even hear a few grumbles. We don’t like to wake up and when we do finally get to that point, we have so much to do that we rush out the door like mad people!

However, simply mention the word coffee and I will perk right up.

I’m a big fan of breakfast as well. I really love your typical breakfast items like eggs and bacon. Biscuits are cool too. Donuts and cinnamon rolls. Cereal and yogurt. It’s all good in this breakfast hood.

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s what gets us going in the mornings when we don’t feel like going anywhere. I am working really hard to make sure that I make it a priority among all the other tasks I have to get done in the craziness of the mornings. 

You know what I really enjoy, but sometimes forget about? Oatmeal! Big fan of oatmeal. Since we don’t always have time to make oatmeal, I was really excited to hear about a new and innovative product that makes oatmeal so much easier to make in the mornings.

You can literally brew your breakfast in your brewing machine! Yep, I’m for real. This is breakfast simplified and a great way to help you to “pop up” in the morning!

I was so excited to find out that I can use my brewing machine to make oatmeal. How simple is that?

I’m already making myself coffee, why not grab some oatmeal while I’m at it! Such a cool product. Nature Valley Bistro Cups make breakfast easy!

You can choose from two different flavors:

  • Apple Cinnamon Almond
  • Brown Sugar Pecan

Nature Valley Oatmeal

I was excited to get the Brown Sugar Pecan flavor. It also has cranberries in it!

Nature Valley Oatmeal 1

You make it in your brewing machine! It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

Nature Valley Oatmeal 2

You start by pouring the oatmeal into your favorite mug. I love eating food in a mug!

Nature Valley Oatmeal 3

Pop the brewing cup into your machine and using the 6 oz option, brew it into your mug of oatmeal!

Give it a stir and then let sit for about a minute.

Nature Valley Oatmeal 4

That’s it! Goodness in a mug to kick your morning off right! Even if you are in a busy whirlwind in the mornings, you probably have a couple minutes to prepare an easy oatmeal like this.

Want to try this out for yourself! Grab a COUPON for Nature Valley Bistro Cups! Here’s how:

$50 California Wine Club Giveaway!

You may have read my last post and review about the California Wine Club. Do you know someone who has a plaque or perhaps a magnet that says “Life is Too Short to Drink Bad Wine”?

Yeah, this just might be the perfect Christmas gift for them. Or hey, if it’s YOU with that magnet, we’re not going to judge. Go on ahead and grab yourself a membership. 😉

Basically, you get 2 bottles of homegrown, not-sold-in-stores, even award-winning wine each month delivered to your door. What a concept!

This is Bruce and Pam Boring. Their last name may sound less than enthusiastic, but their desire for wine certainly is not! They are the ones behind this specialty club and the tasters that bring you the unique wine each month. Isn’t it nice to have a face to go with a company?

I was recently sent another shipment from the California Wine Company with a Merlot and a Chenin Blanc from David Grehrs. Both of which I never would have had the opportunity to try if it wasn’t for this club! I’m not much a Merlot drinker, but I really enjoyed the Chenin Blanc. Nice and sweet, but not overly.

If you’re thinking about getting someone a unique and fun gift this year, be sure to check out the California Wine Company. Here’s how:
