    These look delicious. One of your readers submitted mixes for easy bake ovens. Can you tell me where to find these recipes?

  2. Grizzly Bear Mom says

    Thank you so much for providing these, Tawara and readers! My niece was recently diagnosed as autistic so we want to limit the chemicals to which she is exposed. This will help us (and be more convenient and cheaper! Isn’t that so often the way?) and delight her!

  3. Michele Moore says

    I would like to know about the recipe for Minted Coffee Mix.

    Do you mean ¾ of a cup of powdered coffee creamer?

    There is no measurement listed. Thank you so much for answering.

    Hope everyone is feeling better.Sometimes what you think is terrible like being sick at Thanksgiving can actually be a blessing! I am so thankful for having a website that shares good tips and sometimes a good laugh! I really look forward to reading your posts every week.

    This year, I made the candied stirring spoons that you suggested on this site a few weeks back. You know, the ones that are dipped in chocolate and then have goodies or marshmallows added to them, and are then individually wrapped. They were easy, elegant, inexpensive and just special enough for Christmas. I bet they would be perfect with a batch of your gourmet coffee mixes for a nice adult Christmas gift, without risking a sugar overload. Thank you for your ideas, recipes and all the feedback from everyone.

    Hadn’t though of using these as a gift! Great idea Mary Jane! Aren’t our fellow readers clever and helpful?!

    Another gift for the person with everything is an experience. Play “That game” with them. Take them to see a movie or watch a favorite show with them. If they like kids, bright them. If not don’t. Either way ask, because they may have a headache that day.

    This was great !!! I truly enjoy my coffee… I have created some of my own coffee flavors – much like you have noted… I will be trying the other options that you have listed.
