Start Your Day Off Right with Community Coffee

I received this product to review. All opinions are 100% my own.

 

Start Your Day Off Right with Community Coffee

 

I love coffee whether it is regular or flavored. One of my all time favorites is Community Coffee Golden Caramel is awesome! I love it hot and cold. I don’t add any extra sweetness because the flavor is awesome on its own. It comes in K-Cups which makes it quick and easy to enjoy a cup at a time.

Louisiana Blend is the perfect dark blend. I enjoy this coffee in my different blended drinks. No matter what you make with it the strong flavor comes through every time. Of course it is great on it’s own or with your favorite dessert!

I suggest trying the Sweet Potato Layer Cake with Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting! It’s great any time of year and a family favorite!

Sweet Potato Layer Cake with Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting

Cake:

  • 2 cups white whole wheat or all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups peeled, grated sweet potato (about 1 medium)
  • 1 cup toasted, finely chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
  • ½ cup chopped dates
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh or canned pineapple

 

Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brewed Community® coffee, cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ – 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line three 8-inch round baking pans with parchment paper and spray sides with vegetable cooking spray.

 

Cake

In large bowl, whisk together flour, 1 ½ cups granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Stir in or mix on low speed vegetable oil and eggs; completely combine. Add sweet potato, ¾ cup walnuts, dates and pineapple, stirring until combined. Evenly divide batter into pans. Bake about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.

Let cool in pans 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of cake pans; turn over onto cooling rack. Remove parchment and cool completely.

 

Frosting

In large mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until well combined. Add coffee and vanilla; mix until smooth, scraping bowl often. Gradually add 3 ½ cups powdered sugar, adding extra coffee or powdered sugar to achieve spreading consistency; mix until completely combined.

Place first layer of cake on serving plate; evenly spread with 1/3 of frosting. Repeat with remaining layers. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup walnuts to garnish.

Makes 1 large layer cake (at least 16 slices)

 

Notes:

  • White whole wheat flour has all of the nutrition of whole wheat flour but with a less assertive flavor and texture. In this cake, it enhances the nutty, rich flavors and performs quite similarly to all-purpose flour.
  • To easily toast nuts, place in heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until fragrant and lightly browned, about 2-4 minutes. Cool.
  • Toasting nuts develops an additional layer of flavor which won’t occur from baking since the nuts are mixed into the cake batter.
  • For evenly-sized layers, use a kitchen scale to equally portion batter into each pan.
  • Omit nuts if there’s an allergy concern or if they’re not a favorite. Consider adding coconut instead.
  • The frosting will not noticeably taste of coffee. Instead, the rich cream cheese and butter flavors are enhanced.
  • This semisweet cake dessert will pair well with Community® coffee Café Special®. This medium roasted coffee provides a light balance between the creamy, richness of the dessert and the subtle flavor of the coffee.

Tax Season Coupons!!

This post is a guest post.

 

Tax Season Coupons: Up to 50% Off TurboTax and H&R Block

Doing your taxes isn’t fun, but a silver lining might be that you can find coupons for tax prep software so at least you aren’t paying retail price! The competition between companies like TurboTax & H&R Block is already heating up, and they both have online coupons available now:

These discounts are in addition to the lower prices that you pay online for download, so it works out to cost about half what you’d pay in stores for a CD of their software. (Do people still use those?)

Tip: These companies have been known to yank their promotions in the final days of tax season, so if you want the best price, download the software well before the April 18th tax deadline.

Anyway, it’s hard to get excited about anything to do with taxes, but at least you can stick it to “The Man” by using a coupon. Good luck!

$100 Amazon Gift Card Dropprice Giveaway

I wasn’t compensated for this post.
Amazon Gift Card Dropprice

Welcome to the $100 Amazon Gift Card Dropprice!

Dropprice is an innovative startup that rewards moms for being social. Essentially, they empower moms to drop prices of kids & baby products with a click. The price continues dropping as more moms click “Drop the price”. Every week new promotions are launched and moms drop prices by sharing them on social media. See the chart below to understand the power moms have and how important it is to share with other moms.

Amazon Gift Card Dropprice

In today’s promotion for the GUND Sound & Lights Whale, it started out at $40.00 and for each mom that clicks, the price drops a bit. The price will continue to drop for each mom that participates.

Amazon Gift Card Dropprice

You can choose to share on social media to get more moms to click “Drop the price”, or you can “Buy Now” at the current price. Keep in mind that when the price gets low, they usually sell out and you will no longer have the chance to buy that item. As an added bonus every item on Dropprice ships for free!

Do you want to give it a try? This is such a fun and exciting way for moms to save lots of money by collaborating with each other. If you would like to have a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card, you can experience dropping the price by following the instructions below.

Giveaway: Win a $100 Amazon Gift Card

All you have to do is help moms drop the price of the Whale and you will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Just click “Drop the price” on the entry form below for a chance to win. For even more entries, share it on your social media networks via the entry form — every time one of your friends also clicks to drop the price, you’ll automatically receive additional giveaway entries!

This giveaway ends on 3/7/2017; you must be a US Resident and be 18 years or older to enter. Winners are randomly selected and contacted via email; the winners will be listed at the top of the entry form when the giveaway ends.

Marigold 19-hole Letter Size Comb Ring Binding Machine Paper Punch Book Binder with Starter Kit

I received this product to review. All opinions are 100% my own.

 

Marigold 19-hole Letter Size Comb Ring Binding Machine Paper Punch Book Binder with Starter Kit 

Okay if you are like me I find myself with projects that I would love to be able to bind paper myself. It would be so awesome, right? Well wish no more because I have found the perfect solution, the Marigold 19-hole Letter Size Comb Ring Binding Machine Paper Punch Book Binder with Starter Kit.

 

Product Details:

  • Manually punches up to 10 sheets of 20lb paper at a time, and binds up to 230 sheets with a 1″ comb spine
  • Designed with 19 individual, hardened punching pins,it punches 19 Holes on the letter size paper.
  • Adjustable punching margin from 2mm to 8mm
  • Includes 100 19-ring comb spines inside the box
  • Punching life cycle tested in the lab: more than 12,000 times (10sheets a time)

This binder is extremely easy to use.

I was a little considered about how easy the binding would be to put on but I was pleasantly surprised. Here is what you do:

Step One: Punch rectangular holes into the edges of your document.

Step Two: Place the plastic spine into a row of stakes and use the machine’s lever to open up the comb-like teeth.

Step Three: Insert the teeth of the plastic spine into the holes of your document.

Step Four: Use the same lever to bind your sheets together into a book by closing the comb-like teeth of the plastic spine.

I really love the fact that they include 100 plastic spines with the unit. You can bind up to 230  pages with the 1 inch plastic binding. Whether you are using the Marigold 19-hole Letter Size Comb Ring Binding Machine Paper Punch Book Binder with Starter Kit for art or home projects or you have a child with school projects you will be so glad you have a binding machine of your own! 

 

Here We Go Again Ready received this product to review. All opinions are 100% my own. I only recommend products I think would be beneficial to my readers.
