Here in my house since the pandemic started we have the tradition of having a cup to hot tea before going to sleep. 



Tea cookies

 I started making a natural ginger root, garlic, lemon juice infusion sweetened with honey, this sounds maybe not a very traditional tea flavor, but all these ingredients have natural curative properties and I think is very good to strengthen your immune system In the beginning we found it not very attractive to drink, but later on we started to liking it.  



Now we switch to herbals tea bags, this selection is our favorite.

 Only once in a while I make the ginger-garlic infusion, I am just given them a break, LOL


Along with drinking a hot cup of tea, it comes a social interaction, there is something very special of someone preparing a hot cup of tea for you and the part of drinking it together has a lot of value for my family.

I have made several Tea Sets cookies, but not until know I came with the idea of making Tea bags cookies.  They are super easy to do, and you can have so much fun using different kind of sprinkles and sanding sugars.

I bought this paper craft book several years ago and I used some of the cut-outs to make the tea tags. Click Here

I think this will be a very cute idea to give them as a gift for your tea lovers friends. You can arrange them in a cute box and add some tea bags to go along with it.

There are always so many easy ways to express how much you love someone, either preparing a simple cup of hot tea or baking and decorating some delicious cookies. 

I hope that this 2022 you all have a very good year, that after this bumpy start of 2022,  you can put some pink shades on and believe in pink as Audrey Hepburn once said: 

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.’"


And I should add, prettiest girls are the ones that like to bake and give away what they bake!

 As I was decorating these "Believe" Cookies for some Kindergarten students, I was thinking about how powerful this word is and how often I saw the word Believe this year. 


While I was making the 12 Days of Christmas videos, I took a trip on memory lane and noticed that at a very early age I showed interest in the culinary arts. I thought about how much I had learned by watching my mom do her baking and cooking. Later as I grew up I had the chance to start baking and selling cookies and carrot cupcakes. I sold so many carrot cupcakes that my mom thought I was turning into an Oompa Loompa due to the orange tint on my hands. I even went to the doctor and it turns out I wasn't but instead had too much beta carotene from the carrots I handled. 

Well coming back to the theme of "Believe".... I believe that each of us is born with a special gift. When you are a kid your parents help you discover it and later on you continue nurturing until it is time you put it to action. The more you share it and enrich the life of others is when that gift fulfills its purpose.

I can't believe we are in the 4th Day of Christmas Cookies videos, how can it be that times goes by so fast? Since I started with this project I wanted to write a post about and until now I am doing it.

Making these cookies and videos have made me reflect on how much I enjoy baking and how blessed I am to had the chance to start leaning  at a very early age.
