I love Joy the Baker and when I grow up I want to be just like her. She’s witty, down-to-earth  and her blog posts are informative but at the same time, truly enjoyable.

Joy seems like someone I’d totally hang out with. Not that I’m jealous or anything but she’s even met, and baked with Ree Drummond, whom you probably know as The Pioneer Woman.

Top 5 Holiday Teas

With the Holidays fast approaching and cold weather closing in, I find myself drinking more and more tea. Partially to keep warm but mostly because it’s my favorite absolute favorite tea season. To keep you up on what I’m drinking I’ve composed a list of my top 5 Holiday Teas. Cheers!

1. Nutcracker Sweet by Celestial Seasonings – A medium/dark black tea with a touch of spices & sweetness and I’m sure this is what drinking cookies must taste like.

2. Winter Solstice by Peet’s Tea – A mild black tea with a bit of vanilla and a hint of citrus
