Good Morning Friends!
It has been a busy week, I can definitely relate to those squirrels running around gathering nuts for the Winter months.
The weather here in Nashville has officially begun its slow transition into Fall, leaves are falling, colors are changing and I find myself in the baking spirit. Yesterday, I was perusing my recipe books, Pinterest and thanks to one of my good friends for introducing me to what is now one of my favorite publications, Sift Magazine. I came across a recipe for vanilla chai shortbread cookies and they did not disappoint. They are the perfect blend of spicy and sweet, the icing has a vanilla and cinnamon finish, which are two of my favorite ingredients.
What are some of your favorite things to bake?
One of the things I love most about baking, is bringing surprise treats to family and friends. These days, there are so many creative ways to package homemade treats. You can often find me shopping at Cost Plus World Market, which I’ve found always has an eclectic assortment of gifting ideas. Sometimes I find myself getting sidetracked in there, it’s so easy to do. I find Target can be the same way. I went in about a month ago to buy workout clothes and laundry detergent and walked out with two of these adorable “Warm & Cozy” mugs. You can buy them here: https://www.target.com/p/clay-art-camper-mug-15oz-stoneware-warm-cozy/-/A-51090849
I am off to deliver some of these tasty treats to a good friend, I hope you all have a great week ahead!
