Enjoy this homemade Salted Caramel Mocha Creamer in your morning cup of coffee. Homemade coffee creamer is easy to make and and easy to customize.
I am partnering with the J.M. Smucker Company to bring you this recipe.
Like it or not, technology has become a way of life. Unfortunately it is easy to become too attached to your phone or screen device.
As a full time mom and blogger, I am guilty of spending plenty of time with my face buried in my phone checking emails or social media during the day. Some days I am just mindlessly scrolling through Facebook or Pinterest.
My husband likes to flip the phone out of my hands whenever he catches me zoning out. It is so easy to become disconnected from the ones around you when you have a digital device easily accessible.
Everyone in our house has a phone or digital device. If we aren’t careful, those devices come on way too many times throughout the day. Limiting screen time has become necessary and needed so we can catch up with each other.
One rule that we have put into practice in our house is no screens at the dinner table. We sit down as the whole family at least 4 or 5 nights a week for dinner together.
This is our time to find out what is going in school and what activities are coming up. We also like to ask what one good thing happened during the day and what one hard thing happened during the day.
Phones and digital devices are not allowed to be at the table. By keeping screens off during this time, we are able to focus on each other better.
For many years, Smuckers has promoted the Power of Family Meals. This is a drive to focus on the benefits of eating together as a family. Recently they launched their Disconnect to Reconnect campaign.
Disconnect to Reconnect is a movement to get families to unplug at the dinner table at least one meal a week, or more often. This is definitely something that is close to my heart. So we are excited to participate in this campaign, and our family will be taking this Disconnect to Reconnect pledge for every meal.
Will you join us by shutting down your devices during dinner? Your family is more important than that text or email.
One meal that we enjoy every so often is breakfast for dinner. No one in our family is a morning person, so we enjoy pancakes, eggs, and coffee for dinner instead. My husband likes his coffee black, but everyone else likes a little bit of sugar in theirs.
Salted Caramel Mocha is one of my all time favorites, but I cannot always find it in the grocery store. So I decided to create a homemade version that we can enjoy any time.
