Tuesday Tea

It's actually Tuesday Coffee for me this morning  :)   need that zap to get me going!
I've just finished reading this book written by my friend Susan.  It's about a woman who walked from New York to Siberia, travelling through Canada on up to Alaska....all on foot to reach her home.  I loved the book and it ended all too soon!

Some of the baking I've done the past few days.  Things are all packaged up.....and yes I sampled a couple  :)  My shortbread, almond florentines and raison ginger cookies.

I'm making another batch of shortbread and that will be enough  :) 

Thanks for stopping by and please check out Kimmies site at http://artinredwagons.blogspot.com/ to see what everyone's up to today  :)



  1. Oh Nancy! I can almost taste those cookies. And I can only imagine what the shortbread will taste like, because I love it all. It all looks so inviting and delicious, too. I always love thumbprint cookies. Have an awesome tea today!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a kind comment! Your cookies look delicious -- I'd love the recipe for the raisin ginger ones!

  3. I tried to make shortbread tonight to take to a friend I am seeing for lunch tomorrow but I left it in the oven too long. So it is toasted shortbread. :/ Not quite as tasty. All your baking looks wonderful. And the book certainly sounds interesting. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  4. You look like a bakery! Isn't is fun?! The tasting part I mean ;)

    Your book sounds interesting too!

    Happy Tuesday!

  5. mmm I bet your house still smells wonderful with that lovely array of cookies

    I have a lazy shortbread recipe that you make in a square pan and cut into 'cubes'...easy and buttery good

    not sure how much baking I will be doing this year
    what an interesting book!

  6. Your baking looks so good. I love those drop shortbread with jelly and cherries on top, so so yummy.
    I love to know what everyone is reading :)

  7. Lovely looking baking I have done none yet this year.. Going to wish I did later but that much less to eat afterwards.. Hope you have a great day..Take Care
