If there’s one thing I love, it’s coffee. I know, I know – I talk about this all the time. Heck, I’m working on a book of recipes all using coffee!

So if anyone gives me a chance to try something coffee related, I say yes.

Let’s….just call it research, okay? From now on, it’s all research.


My favorite way of enjoying coffee is piping hot, with just a touch of cream or milk. Or iced, if it’s really steamy in the summer. But most days, I’m a hot coffee girl. Always and only in the morning, unless it’s decaf later in the day. If I have any caffeine after noon, I get shaky and that is not fun.

A week ago, I got an email asking if I wanted to try this new Nescafe with Coffee-Mate and share a giveaway with you guys, and I couldn’t turn down the chance to try something coffee-related. Plus, I love sharing giveaways with you! It’s always fun to get mail – especially food-related mail.


This new Nescafe with Coffee-Mate gives you a quick and easy way to make a cup of coffee in the morning, pairing the popular Nescafe coffee with Coffee-mate Creamer – a 2 in 1! It’s like the coffee version of peanut butter and jelly or tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches: they’re just better together.

Now, I will say, I’m not normally a big fan of instant coffee. We’re pretty snobby when it comes to coffee in our house – locally roasted, grinding fresh beans, using spring water…it’s a little ridiculous, but it’s what we like.

But, I did love how quick this Nescafe was to make! And with the mixture already together (coffee + cream), I think it would be perfect to take on camping trips or traveling, since you have everything you need already mixed and ready to go. It would also be great to keep in the office.
