Sweets and Tea

It's the weekend and it's a long weekend for most but unfortunately the store I work at is open on Monday so I have to work. At least I have 2 days off in a row.

Baking has definitely been put on the back burner lately with everything else going on. I'm whipping up cookies once a week to keep our container full in the fridge for Adam's lunches but other than a batch of cupcakes for my Aunt's birthday party last week, I haven't been trying out new recipes.

Spider-man Cookies
I made some Spider-man sugar cookies for Nerd Junk Food a couple weeks ago. They turned out sooo yummy. I'm definitely going to use the recipe again. I think they'd be awesome for Halloween - orange cookies with black sprinkles. For the recipe, check out the post here.

Unfortunately I didn't get better pictures of the cupcakes I made for the birthday party last weekend. I finished decorating them late at night and the next day I just didn't have time to take photos. They're chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting (I have to admit, my chocolate frosting tastes like fudge). I replaced the water with strong coffee in the cupcake recipe. I was hoping for a mocha taste but there isn't much of a noticeable coffee taste. It was nice to know that each cupcake was a bit of a caffeine pick me up though.

I think the only recipe I'll be trying out this month will be overnight oats. Have you heard of them?

You put all your ingredients together the night before and the next morning you eat it cold. There's no cooking involved. It's very good for you and you can change up the toppings and add-ins. I just need to pick up some ingredients this weekend.

Since getting my new loose-tea travel mug for my birthday I've been living off tea. One of my favourites right now from Davids Tea is Swampwater. Cold or hot, it's good! And the colour entertains me! It's so green!

It really does look like swampwater. #davidstea #teaaddict

Have you made anything delicious lately? I can't wait until September when life settles down a bit. There are so many cookies, cupcakes, and smoothies I want to try!
