I’m on a roll here with recipes.  My sister, Debi, who is in the non-blogging minority in my family, has a recipe for a really delicious Cappuccino mix.  This is quite yummy for these cold winter evenings.  Here it is:


1 cup instant coffee (You can use decaf, if you’d like)

2 cups coffee creamer (I use the nonfat type)

1/3 cup sugar (I use Splenda)

1 tsp. cinnamon (I leave this out – I’d rather not have the cinnamon flavor)

Mix together.  Use 4 tablespoons per cup of hot water.

Variation: Use different flavored coffee creamers for different flavors of cappuccino.

Okay, let the snow and ice storms come.  You’re ready to face them with this recipe.  

Oh?  You’re not a coffee/cappuccino drinker? Okay, here’s a tea recipe from my mother.  This recipe has been around for DECADES!  I remember drinking it as a kid.  It’s wonderful.  My daughter gave me a jar of the mix for Christmas.  It is SO good.


1 1/2 cups Tang

1 cup lemon flavored instant tea

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups sugar (or Splenda)

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

Mix thoroughly and store in a covered container.  Use 1 to 3 tsp. to a cup of hot water.  WONDERFUL!
