Coffee is the one thing everyone in my house loves. While I don’t drink it, I love it in breads and cake! It’s great because I can always have fun baking iced cranberry coffee bread with my teenagers and share it with the household over tea and coffee. Not to mention my oldest son’s two friends that are always over here.
This time of year comes so much planning that it is nice to have a little time to bake with my teenagers. I enjoy talking about everything that is going on. We get to enjoy coffee and treats while connecting about everything in life. It makes those moments when everything is just moving to fast during the holidays so much more precious. My son with his band, my daughter with her play, and my oldest with ideas on a career. It’s these times over a pumpkin spiced latte and iced cranberry coffee bread that we can slow the process and make memories.
Check out this digital magazine to get great ideas for the holiday with Nestle & Coffeemate featured in it! I also have a recipe below for a pumpkin spiced latte made with Powdered Pumpkin Spice Coffeemate creamer and Nescafe Taster’s Choice instant coffee. Super simple to put together in a quickness for a afternoon coffee with friends or some time with the family.
Every Fall we break out the decor and have fun decorating together. Though, Thanksgiving is the funniest for me as we sit down together and go over what we would like on the menu. It’s always exciting to see what they would like to try again or change up for this year.
