Few things get me more excited than when I walk into a new bakery only to discover that among their line up of gorgeous baked goods, they have giant, chewy ginger cookies for sale.
That probably sounds a bit strange to a few of you – that I could get so excited over something as simple as a ginger cookie; But if there is one thing that I simply cannot resist in life, it’s a good ginger cookie. No matter what the circumstance, if I sniff out a good ginger cookie in my travels, you better bet that I will be buying one – okay let’s be real, I will most likely be buying two or three. I will never pass up a good, crackly ginger cookie. Who’s with me on this?
We have had one heck of a winter here in Vancouver & I don’t know about you guys, but I honestly could not be more ready for summer. Like, at this point I would be completely fine if we could just skip Spring and go straight to hot sunny days, filled w/ trips to the beach and the market to pick up fresh summer berries & stone fruits.
Okay, so I know it’s still February and we have a longgg way to go before days like that can happen – but hey, a girl can dream right?
So today, (despite gloomy, freezing Vancouver weather,) I am embracing all the summer vibes, and throwing a little impromptu donut party w/ Pure Leaf Peach Iced Tea and these Ginger Peach Fritters. Who else wants to join in!?
Happy Saturday lovelies!
I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by! Before we know it Christmas will already be here. Do you have all of your shopping done? Somehow this year I have managed to get ahead of the game (which is not the normal circumstance).
In case you can’t tell from all of the holiday plates and flavours in these pictures … I’m pretty much in full blown Christmas/Holiday mode already – even if it is still only November.
I love matcha. I am always up for a good matcha latte, smoothie or ice cream; I just love the fresh, subtle green tea flavour it brings to the table. Of course my absolute favourite way to consume matcha is when it’s been added to a homemade baked goodie of some sort – particularly when said baked goodie includes chocolate in some shape or form, because chocolate & matcha are pretty much a match made in flavour heaven.
So when Aiya America Matcha reached out to me to partner up for a recipe post with their Cooking Grade Matcha – I couldn’t wait to bake up something chocolatey & delicious with their matcha!
