Warm Sips + New Art

February 04, 2016

What do you sip on when it gets cold out?

It’s that time of year….where warm sips of something nourishing are always near me while I’m working :)….especially when winter storms come through and we’re snowed in :).

Don’t you love the magic of big storms. The night sky glows so pretty and it seems like the whole world has come to a halt—everything is so peaceful. Here’s a pic that my hubby took around midnight from the huge blizzard that buried the East coast a few weeks ago….it was so much fun! You can see see more pics here.

So, I thought it’d be fun to share a round up of some delicious winter-time beverages…

Here are my top five faves:

  1. Traditional, Yogi-Style Chai – with fresh grated ginger and ground cardamon….so yummy—here’s the recipe!
  2. Honey & Lemon Tea – it’s simple, but this tonic not only warms you up…but there’s so many great benefits. Read about the benefits and try the recipe, click here!
  3. Mexican Style Coffee – in my little 4 cup-coffee maker, before brewing, I like adding 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla to the coffee grounds….omg, not only does it smell like cinnamon rolls and coffee, but it tasted delicious :)!
  4. Good Earth Original Tea – with the strong cinnamon flavor and naturally sweet taste…it’s perfect for a sweet craving.
  5. Red Rooibos: Vanilla– at first I wasn’t a big fan of Rooibos…but a friend introduced me this and it’s become a favorite now :).

What do you love sipping on when it get cold? I always love adding new options to my mug…so please leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite cold weather beverage is :).

April 26, 2017

 Envisioning our feasts I love this time of year; when all the envisioning we did in the winter, of the goodness we want to feast on during the summer months, goes into motion :). For the past few years, at the beginning of spring, the hubs and I have been starting our own seeds for […]
