Good Monday Morning! Let’s start the first week of the New Year with my Monday topic pick which is “Food”! You would think I had enough food over the holidays, especially sweets, to tide me over for at least a month…but nooooo. I was going to start with the healthy route since I am a huge fan of eating healthy except for the fact that I had these two recipes which I never “got to” over the holidays – so I baked them up yesterday.
I have to mention once again Chef Paul over at The Pantry Blogger and the fantastic giveaway he held recently which I won! I used several of the great goodies making the above cookies and I am now blessed to have a food grater that I can successfully use without grating my fingers!
Thank you and I look forward to many more of Chef Paul’s wonderful recipes in the coming year!
Over the holiday season I discovered The Spice House which is right in my own neck of the woods. I was searching on the internet for orris root to use in the potpourri I am making and found them listed.
I found the shop stocked with all types of herbs and spices, gift sets and even recipes – the above Lemon Lavender Cookies I picked up from them. I received personal attention as each purchase I made was taken from the jar and bottled up for me. I can’t wait to head on back there!
I can honestly say that since I have been baking with the fresh chicken eggs there is a definite difference in taste. The chicks are still laying eggs even in this brutal cold weather but not as many as during the warmer months.
I must also mention a spectacular email I received yesterday from Sea Willow Herbs informing me that I had won their giveaway! Thank YOU Jennifer …… I await my gifts with much excitement!! I am feeling quite fortunate and happy as I bring in the Year 2011 ….
