Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

14 oz or 1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk or Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe
1 1/4 cups of milk
1 1/2 Tbs of vanilla extract

Mix all three together in a mason jar with lid on and shake well. Will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge. 

I used a recipe, but I made a few adjustment to the recipe. 

Original recipe link below.

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe


1 1/2 cups whole milk
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbs butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Stove Top Directions:

Mix sugar and milk together in a saucepan. Stir often, bring to a low simmer over medium-low heat. When steam starts lifting off milk, lower heat to simmer until  sugar is entirely dissolved. 

You want to make sure the this is reduced half the quantity in the pot. Takes 2 hours on low heat to reduce to one cup of liquid. When you turn the stove off, put your 3 Tbs of butter and 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract in and stir. 

Let cool before transferring to a mason jar. You want this thick, but not thick if you are using for coffee creamer. 

Crock-pot directions:

Mix sugar and milk together in a saucepan. Stir often, bring to a low simmer over medium-low heat. When the steam starts lifting off milk. I transfer this to the crock-pot with the lid half off on low for 2 hours. I stirred every 30 minutes. When done with the 2 hours, put your 3 Tbs of butter and 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract iin and stir.

Let cool before transferring to a mason jar. You want this thick, but not so thick if you are using this for coffee creamer. 

I used the recipe from a website, just made a few adjustments of my own.

The original recipe link is here below.

Friday Walmart and Farm Fresh trip

I made a unexpected trip to Farm Fresh and Walmart. 

Walmart trip, I just needed a few things and I ended up only spending $16.27. Not bad and even saved $3.25 for the coupons. 

Farm Fresh trip was interesting that I was not expecting to spend the time that I did in the store. Usually, I have a list with all my coupons. Farm Fresh had their coupon booklets in the store to go with some of the Farm Fresh brands were on sale. I found a coupon for the hot sauce for $1.00 off and they were on sale for $1.00. Purchased six and used six coupons, this equal FREE!!!!! However, I did manage to get several things free beside the hot sauce. My complete total was $61.55. Coupons were $32.78 saved giving me a 54% saving. Out of pocket was $28.77. This was another great job on saving at an unexpected trip. 

Clearance Jeans!!!

The other day, I accidentally tore my last pair of jeans and needed to buy more. I usually do not buy clothes for me unless I have to have them or they are on sale for a good price. Well, my intention was only one pair of jean, I ended up purchasing two pairs that was on clearance. Usually, I do not purchase my jeans on clearance either, I usually pay full price for them. However, that day, I had so much to spend on jeans and I really wasn't ready to purchase any clothes for myself. So, I went into Walmart and was looking at the jeans and I found two pairs of jeans on clearance. One was for $7 and the other was $11. I ended up spending $18.90 on two pairs of jeans instead of only getting one pair. I did a great job on this and wasn't expecting it. 

First Christmas order has been placed...

This evening, my sister posted a link saying that she purchased two of the xbox headset. Well, I decided to look at what she purchased and thought that maybe, my son would like this. I went to Amazon and this is what I found.

Professional Headphone with Mic for XBOX 360

So, I went and decided to purchase two as well. My son is hard on headsets for his xbox, so I decided to purchase 2 of these. Well, Amazon was offering them for $2.97 from originally $29.99, this is a $27.02 saving on gifts. Well, when it was all over and done, I only paid $.43 for two headsets. Thanks to my sister for posting this on her wall and I see this right before I decided to go to bed.
