Easy Coffee Rub for Chicken or Steak Recipe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Community Coffee. All opinions expressed here are my own, and I’m happy to share with you my coffee rub recipe.

It is that morning. The one you dread. The one where you forgot to get out of our pajamas and ended up driving your kids to school because they missed the bus. You hadn’t planned to get out of the car, but your littlest dropped their lunch, and the orange tumbled away almost in slow motion. You jumped out of your minivan. You had to save the orange. What if your child didn’t have their serving of fruit? You try to look dignified after almost face planting in your heroic effort to save the orange from the SUV that was approaching quickly. You wave to the crossing guard that reminded you parents are supposed to stay in their car at all times. You get back into your vehicle because the day has to get better.

You drive home, and it does.

You remember next to you sits your Community® Coffee. You pull into your driveway. You do not get out of the car. You bring the mug to your lips. You let the aromatic scent pass by your nose. You inhale. You exhale. You take a sip as the flavorful brew travels down your throat. You smile. You have returned to yourself again.

You do not have to wonder where your Community® Coffee came from. It has been a family owned business for four generations. The owner “Cap” named it Community out of appreciation for his community of friends and the customers he served. You think Cap, and I could have been friends. He gets me. He knows it takes a village to not only raise a child but to grow the best coffee beans. You think about the generations of farmers that have taken great care to produce only the best 100% Arabica coffee beans. Community Coffee features roasted and blended beans using recipes perfected over 95 years. You think to yourself even if I had 95 years experience I still couldn’t have caught that orange any sooner.

You hope your children are talking to you after the pajamas, car line, and the rogue orange incident. You decided to make sure they will forget this morning by making a recipe they can’t resist. You are going to make a recipe using the Community Coffee that you love in the morning into a culinary experience this evening, and it is easier than chasing an orange on a mission to embarrass you.

The best part of waking up each morning is my children piling into our bed as Folgers fills the air. Their sweet voices and tendency to put their appendages in strange places is an affinity I aspire to have. I sit in bed each morning, and I count my blessings. It is the way I start my morning with purpose. It is the mantra I have for my life.Continue reading

The Secret To The Best Part of Waking Up

The Secret To The Best Part of Waking Up

School has arrived in our house like an unwanted houseguest. The hustle and bustle of the children getting ready for school echoes through the thin walls our home. The groans of “Why do we have to get up so early? Are met with hurry up and get going.’ The scavenger hunt for the missing item of clothes that need to be worn today or the fashion emergency will erupt into a full blown melt down complete with a stream of tears has begun. The packing of lunches, military style breakfast delivery, and then my dash to line up the backpacks against the walls with their owner’s shoes neatly beside has commenced.

Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend

I am so overwhelmed with their new schedule and my additional responsibilities. I am in need of my morning cup of coffee before their alarms buzz. The new Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend stands up to the haphazard way I add my sugar and cream. It doesn’t matter with this new formula it will overcome my measuring deficit, and its bold, strong coffee flavor will stand up no matter what method of preparation you employ. I am going with the dump and scoop approach which is usually successful until someone yells, “MOM!” and I forget how much I scooped or dumped.Continue reading

How to Set Up a Folgers® Coffee Bar

Folgers Coffee Bar

When I think back to my childhood one of the things I remember is the smell of Folgers® filling our house. I think back to the fireplace, friends, and family. I decided that with modern technology wouldn’t it be great to create a retreat in my home? I love having people come over. I want them to return often so I make sure they feel special by creating an experience they will remember. I decided to create a self-serve Folgers’ station. It is so easy to set up a self-serve Folgers Coffee Bar. This way they can have their coffee how they like it and as often as they like it. It is always hard to tell how many cups people require, so making a station seems like a great way to help them feel like they are at home.Continue reading
