With the very real threat of nearly two feet of snow being dumped on my community over the next two days, I’m settling in for the duration. The kids will likely be home from school, and they can play in the snow all they want. We have a huge yard, and I have a great view from the kitchen patio door. I will happily make hot cocoa for them, but I’m planning something a bit more interesting for myself! This could be a lengthy hibernation, so I’ve armed myself with two books of warm deliciousness by renowned chef and cookbook author Rick Rodgers: Tea And Cookies: Enjoy The Perfect Cup Of Tea–With Dozens Of Delectable Recipes For Teatime Treats and Coffee And Cake: Enjoy The Perfect Cup Of Coffee–With Dozens Of Delectable Recipes For Cafe Treats.
Tea And Cookies features 13 teas and 9 cookie recipes, while Coffee And Cake offers up 11 coffees and 10 cakes, so we’ll have no shortage of combinations to try while riding out the storm. And when the snow stops flying, I can look ahead with Rodgers’ Spring Gatherings: Casual Food To Enjoy With Family And Friends!
