I practice yoga at a small private studio, with a terrific instructor and some fantastic fellow yogis. Some of us have been together for about 10 years. We try to get together a couple of times a year for a little social time, since we love to chat and chatting during yoga is not really an option. This year Christmas arrived a little too fast, so we decided to postpone our holiday gathering until the new year. I invited everyone over for coffee and treats. My barista son, Brad, was home for a visit. He agreed to help me out. I left all the Christmas decorations up, tree included, and put out the last of the Christmas baking. Here they are – pecan crunch cookies, peanut butter balls, ginger cookies, shortbread, gingerbread cookies, brun cakes, magic toffee, mocha slices, ginger hazelnut biscotti and fruit cake. This is probably overkill on the photos, but I just love the way they look, and I think they taste as good. I’ll post recipes for some of these. That’s code for “I’ll write them out soon and schedule them for after my surgery.” Here’s a coffee and the treats.
