The new Latin flavors from Coffee-mate are DREAMY! The Abuelita® Mexican Chocolate Coffee-mate coffee creamer is delicious, rich and silky with a wonderful kick of cinnamon. It made my morning coffee absolutely delicious. After my first morning trying the new Coffee-mate Abuelita® Mexican Chocolate coffee creamer, I made it a point to go to seek out an authentic Mexican bakery and purchase some Mexican pastries to accompany my delicious Latin inspired coffee. Luckily, in Houston that is not a hard task. There are several Mexican bakeries near by and I found JUST what I was looking for.
My Latin flavored coffee actually made the pastries taste BETTER! It was DREAMY. So dreamy, we had them along with the coffee for an after dinner dessert. I’m not usually one that buys decaf coffee but for this creamer I will. I’m convinced the delicious Latin inspired flavored from Coffee-mate would make any coffee taste amazing.
It’s so yummy I’m thinking of recipes in which I could use the Latin flavored coffee creamers in. If you have any recipes or ideas that use coffee creamer and would go well with these wonderful flavors please let me know!
Coffee-mate’s two newest flavors will add a touch of Latin to your day:
Abuelita® Mexican Chocolate is a silky, cinnamony, rich, authentic experience
La Lechera® Dulce de Leche is a creamy, dreamy, milk caramel caress from the Southern side of the continent.

It’s Back To School time again, are you ready? I know I’m not!
I can’t believe it’s already time to send my Alice back to school!! When did she get so big and where did our summer go? My sweet baby girl is in 1st grade now! Wow, the time really does fly by! I’m incredibly blessed to be a preschool teacher at the very same Christian private school my baby girl attends. I can peak in on her from time to time. I can only image how hard it is for all the parents out there that have to wait till the end of the school or work day to see their kids again.
I know we sometimes count down the days till school is back in session and we can have a moment of piece and quiet in the house! Then suddenly the first day of school is tomorrow and you’re not ready for them to go!!
THEN….there are the supplies, clothes, shoes, food for lunches! I have everything ready for Alice and I’ve got to let you know about the yummy Fruit Burst® Squeezers from Del Monte® I found while shopping at Walmart recently. Alice LOVES them and I love that she’s getting a serving and a half of fruits and veggies without knowing she’s eating her veggies!! BRILLIANT!! I’ve always bought her the Del Monte ® fruit cups and she loves those as well.
I have a super easy and super fun lunch idea that pairs great with the Del Monte® Fruit Burst® Squeezers and the Del Monte® Fruit Cups……Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Sushi!
First, cut off the crust. Then cut into 4 long strips. Spread jelly first and then peanut butter. After you’re done roll of the pieces and….VOILA you have cute yummy Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Sushi!!! The kids love it and love to show it off at school. It’s fun and easy enough the kids can make it themselves!
Right now, you can receive a FREE back to school photo from the Walmart Print Shop from August 1 – September 13 while supplies last. Just bring in a photo or have one uploaded from your mobile device, SD card or online and they will print out the photo with a back to school border. It’s perfect for those first day of school pics we all take! Make sure it’s your own picture, no copyrighted photos or professional photos will be allowed. This offer is running at SELECT Walmart Super Stores. If you participate in the free back to school photo offer you will receive $1 off the purchase of (2) Del Monte 4-pack Fruit Cups or (2)Fruit Burst Squeezers (offer available from 8/1 to 9/13 while supplies last).

I sure hope all my readers are having a wonderful summer. This is my FIRST summer off as a Teacher! I gotta say, it’s pretty awesome. Being a teacher is the most wonderful job I have ever had. It is also one of the most stressful, tiring and time consuming job I have ever had! So, Summer’s off are GREAT!!! Now I can enjoy days in the summer with my family, picnic, trips to the beach, pool or spending the day at the park.
It’s hot….really hot! We have discovered the Fruttare Fruit Bars are a delicious way to cool off. They are wonderfully flavorful, a healthy dessert option and come in TEN flavors! Flavors like Strawberry & Milk, Peach & Milk, Banana & Milk, Black Cherry, Pineapple, Lime, Mango, and more! I found mine at Kroger! Starting July 1st Fruttare packages will all contain a $4 Music Reward Code. Once you’ve purchase your Fruttare click HERE to redeem your $4 Music Reward. Reward is valid from July 1st through July 31st.
While having fun in the backyard one day, I brought out some Fruttare Fruit Bars for my daughter and her cousins to enjoy and cool off. It was HOT and the girls really enjoyed the pops but unfortunately they all became a sticky yummy mess! I thought up a quick, easy and fun way to stay mess free while enjoying pops in the hot summer sun.
I call them the DIY Summertime Popsicle Drip Catchers! They are made from colorful fun cardstock. You can incorporate them into any themed party!! How fun, right?
They were SO EASY to make. I’ll show you how.
You will need…..Fruttare Fruit Bars, colorful fun cardstock, a pencil, scissors, ruler and hot glue.
I cut my cardstock into squares that measured 3 3/4 inches.
Then, using my ruler to score the paper I folded opposite ends at 1 inch. Then, folded the other ends at 1/2 an inch each. Keeping the 1/2 inch folds in place, I then folded up the 1 inch sides. Now, the 1/2 inch ends you have to work just a little bit, much like wrapping a gift to get the folds just right. The ends should meet like shown above and on the inside you will have a little triangle. Hot glue that triangle up to the inside of the paper where the two ends and the triangle meet. Then I snipped a tiny hole in the middle of the bottom where the popsicle stick will go. Once the hold was snipped I placed the scissors through to make a slit for the popsicle stick.
It’s really just like wrapping a boxed present, or a half boxed present. Once your done you will have a cute little popsicle drip catcher!
Now all you need is a backyard party, pool party, trip to the park or any fun activity that gets you outside. That is just what we did! We enjoyed the hot summer sun and cooled off with a delicious Fruttare Fruit Bar!
