Masala Chai and Whiskey Tea Cake

Masala Chai and Whiskey Tea Cake

I'm a big fan of tea cakes. They're quick to make, great to snack on and handy to have when friends pop over for a visit. Plus, they're an excuse for a quick mid-week bake! This one is fall inspired and pairs perfectly with Builder's Tea. In a pinch coffee will do, but there's nothing better than strong black tea (we recommend PG tips) and a slice of this spicy, sweet treat.

Mother's Day Coffee (Two Ways)

My mom loves coffee. We call it her go go juice. Most morning's she's up around 5am, cup in hand planning her day. These recipes are inspired by her rugosa roses and garden fresh lavender. 
Dutch Baby Pancake

Dutch Baby Pancake

When I was growing up, these pancakes were always a special treat. I used to eagerly watch them inflate and bubble in the oven. Filling with air, splitting on top and then slowly dropping as they were removed from the oven to cool - so much drama in a pan! Now, they're a regular Sunday morning meal. One joy of growing up is you realize how easy these magical meals are to make and share with the people you love.

Golden Turmeric Mango Smoothie

Turmeric is the ultimate healing spice. The health benefits are incredible, but the most touted benefit of this golden root is it's active ingredient Curcumin. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Throughout our lives, friends and cookbooks have told us stories of Indian parents using turmeric equally in the medicine cabinet as the spice cabinet.

Pumpkin Spice French Toast

Pumpkin Spice French Toast

I'm a huge fan of anything and everything pumpkin. After enjoying a pumpkin pie (obviously), many (and I mean many) pumpkin spice lattes and even some pumpkin flavored ice cream, I needed a new recipe to enjoy. Then I came up with this gem!
