Level 5 Creamer Emergency

in All Posts

Last night, at 9:30 PM, I headed to the grocery store because I just realized that we were completely out of coffee creamer, and there was NO WAY I was experiencing Friday morning without coffee creamer.


Hah – do you think that will do it for a while? (I ended up buying multiples of everything… three creamers, three dish soaps, three body washes… stockin’ up!)


My late-night run was totally worth it this morning.  Because nothing goes better with Quiche Cornbread than creamy coffee.


This variation of the basic recipe included onion and kale.  For more versions:


Zucchini Cornbread Quiche

Spinach and Goat Cheese Cornbread Quiche

Spinach and Broccoli Slaw Quiche Cornbread



If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go play!


Scarlet Thread Winner


There were so many incredible charity ideas in the Scarlet Threads giveaway post.  But the winner is…



Dina, who said she would start a charity that “helped orphans. I know there is already a lot of such charities all over the place, but the number of children in need still outnumber the charities.”  Congrats!  And if you want to purchase a Scarlet Threads apron to support this wonderful organization, use coupon code ‘han25’ to receive 25% off.

    Congrats to Dina!

    And I’m so happy there’s no creamer emergency. Though if it happened, I’m sure you can imagine any of us would gladly run some over. There should never be a day without coffee (or a mama without coffee)!!

    Ha – I use the same creamer and we ran out this morning… TRAGIC. I thought about going to the store but told myself to calm down because I have work to do. Then I freaked out because how can I work without coffee? I ended up adding Vanilla Almond milk. Its ok… but not as good as So Delicious Coconut Creamer. Why don’t they make those in gallon jugs?!

    Ah I hate it when I run out of things like that! Last night I was about to do breakfast for dinner and realized I had no eggs or egg whites!

  • Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles October 19, 2012, 12:34 pm

    I love that soy creamer….I swear, I can drink it by the glassful- ha! And my boyfriend loves your cornbread quiche…he requests it every Sunday so he can have the leftovers all week for an easy/quick breakfast!

    Henry is getting sooooo big!

  • Christina October 19, 2012, 12:40 pm

    Oh my goodness I can relate…I was completely out of the exact same creamer (I’m so addicted!) and my boyfriend and I went out in the pouring rain and took the bus to Whole Foods so I can buy some. The most exciting part? They have quart containers of the So Delicious Coconut Milk creamer (I bought two haha)!

  • Amanda October 19, 2012, 12:56 pm

    I can sooooo relate! I’ve gone to the store for coffee late at night so I don’t have to wake up without it….aaaaand milk. My coffee must have milk.

    This post made me LOL. Every time I buy creamer I struggle to remember to make coffee, but when we don’t have it? I’m making coffee every morning! We go through a LOT of milk those weeks.

  • Annette@FitnessPerks October 19, 2012, 1:38 pm

    Haha. Gotta love a great Fri morning with the creamer!

  • Lindsay October 19, 2012, 2:06 pm

    The thought of having no creamer in the morning makes me shudder! Oh, and I NEED to try making the cornbread quiche. It looks so good every time you post pics!

  • SkinnyRunner October 19, 2012, 2:49 pm

    i completely hoard coffee creamer too because it would be deadly if i woke up without anyone.

  • Joanne October 19, 2012, 2:52 pm

    Congrats Dina. Good win 🙂

    As for the creamer, I get all paniced as well if my morning coffee seems challenged. Think we might have a little addiction problem….

  • Julianna @ Julianna Bananna October 19, 2012, 3:36 pm

    now i want to go make a cornbread quiche! no access to a kitchen is one thing that definitely blows about living on campus in college. i can’t wait to cook and bake like crazy on thanksgiving break!

    Caitlin- I read this article and immediately thought of your post the other day about work-life balance. Thought you would enjoy the read:

  • jen October 19, 2012, 6:39 pm

    yoo pretty much made my day with the coconut creamer. i HAVE to have it on hand, and it HAS to be the french vanilla, or i go crazy. my whole foods just started carrying the larger size, so i currently have 3 of them in my fridge…i always have 3. that stuff is my perfect drug!!!!

  • Katie October 19, 2012, 6:47 pm

    Can you tell me howmany grams of sugar that SO Delicious creamer has in it? I have hypoglycemia but also try to stay away from dairy. I find most non-dairy creamers to be loaded with sugar. 🙁

    • Caitlin October 20, 2012, 9:28 am

      4 grams for the French van

    I hate it when I run out of coffee creamer…

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut October 20, 2012, 7:38 am

    I used to buy one of everything, but now I am just way to busy to go out for TP or dish soap each time I need it, so I keep my kitchen sink stocked!

  • Alison October 20, 2012, 8:28 am

    I typically get really annoyed with bloggers’ constant reviews of free products and giveaways but THANK YOU for featuring this organization. I clicked right over from your post and bought something:-)

    • Caitlin October 20, 2012, 9:26 am

      Thank you for supporting them!

  • Leah @ Chocolate and Wild Air October 20, 2012, 8:51 am

    That IS an emergency! I like to buy multiples of things too – running out of almond milk? Tragedy. Or dark chocolate, or oatmeal, or coffee…yikes, makes me nervous just thinking about it!

  • Molly @ RDexposed October 20, 2012, 9:50 am

    What the heck…I need to buy that creamer!

    Is the piece on the plate the portion you ate?
