Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. And Crumbly.

As a lot of my friends know, I’m a huge Star Trek nerd.  I dressed up as a Vulcan for Halloween last year and even got an IDIC tattoo on my shoulder.

My favourite captain has got to be Jean-Luc Picard.  He’s dignified, smart and loves Earl Grey tea!  I love tea as well.  Dunking biscuits in a nice hot cuppa is heaven.

Yesterday, I was thinking to myself.  I wonder if there is a recipe out there that combines Star Trek, tea and biscuit-dunking together?  And I found it. Today, I’m baking Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies from the Whole Foods Market recipe collection. Continue reading

Prepare for a barrage.

After a long week without my trusty Macbook Pro, it is back.  Oh, how I’ve missed it.

Now, let’s get down to business.  Here are the recipes from my last post that I said I would share:

Multigrain Molasses Bread – I got this recipe from the Eating Well website.  I like this site because it has a lot of different recipes for a lot of different tastes.  It’s also a health-conscious site, which I love.

This bread was very hearty and had a wonderful bran flavour.  It toasted very well and was amazing for tomatoe sandwiches!

Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles – This recipe if from the Kitchn.  I love the simplicity and diverse assortment of goodies on this site.

Mason Jar Cheesecakes – I thought I mentioned this on my last post but I guess I didn’t.  This is from the Just a Pinch website.  It’s a great member-based cache of recipes!

Strawberry Peach Jam – I almost forgot about this one I made from the Food.com website.  I had a lot of frozen fruit in my freezer that never gets used so I though, why not make some jam?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my barrage of yumminess!

 

 

 

 

 

Neighbours.

We have wonderful neighbours.  We help each other out when we can and don’t expect anything in return.  Today, our neighbour came over to cut Alice’s nails.  Her husband is my boyfriend’s boss so we’ve become good friends.  She did a wonderful job, despite Alice biting her on the nose, so I wanted to do something nice for her.  I’m baking her Cranberry Pecan Shortbread Cookies.
