FAVE MEMORY: one of my very earliest memories is the tins of Xmas cookies mom would start baking in early December. Each tin would hold a different cookie- butterball, spritz, pinwheels, sugar sprinkles , cut outs & more. It was heavenly. She continued the tradition for years & years. Even as an adult, it was fun to find the tins & sneak a cookie 😋. In this Xmas pic, I got my favorite doll, my brother got a drum set with a bucking bronco on the side of it 😍. Still....the cookies were the best!! This recipe is from gramma Helen’s cook book published in 1931 & I still have it. It’s beautifully leather bound & embossed.
In my country, Argentina, South America, is startingto get cold. I love to home make chai tea on Mondays, to heat our bodies and souls the rest of the week. I boil 2 liters or water in a big pan, with cardamom, anise, cinnamon, clove, ginger, little black pepper, add some honey after I turn off the fire. This is a super food (beverage), used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries in India to preserve health, as a big source of antioxidants, and many other benefits for our bodies.
