How I Make Week Days Easier as a Single Mom

Being a single mom, my schedule is ALWAYS busy! Week day Mornings are normally really stressful trying to get Aimery to daycare while getting myself ready for work. Something that I have found to help busy mornings is having a coffee cart ready full of Folgers® K-Cup® Pods. This allows me to get my coffee ready in one place while running out the door! 


I like to pick up my Folgers K-Cups at Giant Carlisle! I grew up drinking Folgers coffee, and I love that now with Folgers K-Cups, it's the same Folgers taste in a more convenient way. My favorite are Folgers® 100% Colombian Coffee K-Cup® Pods and Folgers® Morning Cafe® Coffee K-Cup® Pods. I love being able to choose between the full-bodied flavor of Colombian or the light-bodied flavor of Morning Cafe® everyday! 


I always seem to forget to eat breakfast in the morning! I recently started making a 3 Layered Coffee Cake and it has been AMAZING to have on hand during busy weekday mornings! I like to make it on Sundays so I have it for breakfasts during the week. It allows me to focus on myself, by grabbing my coffee and breakfast to go! Check out the recipe below.
