Cinnamon Sugar Blend

Cinnamon Sugar Blend

A very good thing to have ready to use is a nice Cinnamon Sugar Blend. I have been making this Cinnamon Sugar Blend for years to have as one of my favorite pantry staples. Some of my favorite dishes to use this on are  oatmeal, some buttered toast, rice pudding, in coffee, or on top of the foam on cappuccino.  Use it on anything you want to add a hint of sweetness to.     I alway keep this near my coffee pot for a quick flavor boost when I don’t want just plain coffee.For the record I haven’t sweetened my coffee with anything in many years but this cinnamon sugar blend I enjoy once in a while.     When I brew some cappuccino at home sometimes I do a light sprinkling of this on top of the foamed milk.     Cinnamon Sugar Blend Recipe 1/2 cup granulated white sugar 2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon Preparation In a bowl add sugar and ground cinnamon.

I am the proud Mom of four marvelous children – two human and two furry. Some ideas for planning organization and planning ahead One of my favorite “kitchen tools” over the years had been a stand alone freezer which I no longer have now that I am living in NYC. The freezing ideas I’m sharing will still work. So many things can be made ahead and even frozen for quick weeknight meals.  I love love love entertaining friends and family!  Drop
