“Is there more creamer in the fridge downstairs?” My husband’s words send my mind spinning! I couldn’t possibly run out of coffee creamer…could I??? NO!! Tell me it isn’t so!
Reality is, there have been times when this has happened. Knowing the love that my husband and I have for coffee, I often buy three or four bottles of creamer at a time. However, it has slipped my mind a time or two, and we immediately go into panic mode. Yes, we could drink it black, or perhaps with a bit of milk and sugar…but it just isn’t the same. There is just something about that creamy French Vanilla flavor that I must have. That is exactly why I created this simple Homemade French Vanilla Creamer. It only requires three ingredients, which I always have on hand. Because of this, I know I will never be in a bind again! After all, I must have my coffee!
I have always liked drinking coffee, but it wasn’t until recently that it became part of my daily routine. Just a year and a half ago, I lost a special person in my life. My grandpa passed away in a very tragic accident. Even as I am writing this, I can hear his infectious laugh. I can picture him as plain as can be with a coffee cup in his hands. Grandpa did many things, but he completely dominated at drinking coffee. It was July when we lost him, the weather was hot, but I just couldn’t get enough coffee. Our entire family sat around in the sticky, humid Wisconsin summer, sipping from our cups and reminiscing about all the great times with grandpa.
To this day, I still get a smile on my face as I hold that warm cup in my hands. I am no longer able to see my grandpa, but I truly think I get a quick glimpse back into the past with every sip. This Homemade French Vanilla Creamer is just what I need to not only create a delicious flavor but to help me remember an amazing man each and every day!
