“TEA” – Bissinger’s Apricot Green Tea Gummy Pandas

It’s tooooo hot for tea. So I’ve been brewing tea after dark, despite how turning the stove on heats up our airconditionless house, and letting it chill in the fridge over night. But, I also found a way to sneak more tea into my hot summer days. These gummy pandas are courtesy of my sister, a late birthday gift. And yes, late birthday gifts are just as good as on time birthday gifts. So keep ’em coming. 😉 Anyways, back to the gummy pandas.

Tea – Herbescent’s Organic Spiced Mango Green Tea

Okay, I’ve been feeling a bit perma-sleepy lately, so green tea was quickly added to my list of must have writing supplies.  And this lovely bag of tea was added to my collection when I took myself out shopping for my birthday a few days ago. Just look at those gorgeous tea leaves. I love loose leaf tea. In fact I can’t believe it took me this long to post a review about a loose leaf tea.

Obsession Sessions: Cup (of tea) cakes

I am a firm believer in the afternoon tea and treat. And lately — the last few Wednesdays — that treat has been cupcakes. A fantastic little cupcake shop opened up in our town a few months ago and it may be the wonderful end of me. Fabulous, tiny, paper-cup wrapped bites of happiness. Really, somethings just can’t be described. So instead of using words, which we authors are always trying to do, I’m going to be quiet and just let the pictures do the talking.

Photo Friday – Berries (and other good things)

Berries are here! Let’s celebrate. I’m thinking berries with cream, whip cream, on shortcake, in salads, in kuchen, in drinks, in. . . EVERYTHING! 🙂 I love that our garden is starting to show the berries of our labor. 😉 To be honest, berries are not hard to grow. The labor comes with the picking. Or the eating instead of picking. And now that the weekend is here I’m going to fill little buckets with sweet/tart deliciousness, take time to smell the flowers, and look at the (not sure if they’re poisonous) mushrooms. Which means I’m assuming they are poisonous. So I will just enjoy them through pictures. Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

Photo Friday – Farm Fresh

Seeing Ben’s beautiful photos inspired me to get back on the wagon with photo fridays. And what better way than to capture the first delivery of summer produce from our local farmers’ co-op. With our cool, rainy season so far, most of the bag was filled with greens, but the items that caught my attention were the beautiful pops of red, pink, and purple mixed in. So this is really an ode to redish edibles. Redibles. 🙂
