Since the giveaway ties in with breakfast, I’m going to post this day in reverse! Also I’m going to do it quickly, since I’m late picking up the husband.
Dinner – Veggie summer roll from Wegmans while we knocked next week’s grocery shopping out of the way early.
Lunch – A tempeh sandwich with Sriracha Nayo and Strawberry Crofter’s on a Sandwich Thin.
And more soft strawberry licorice.
Breakfast – A ridiculous coffee in the car on the longish drive to an off-site clinic. Venti soy latte with (half pumps) cinnamon dolce syrup.
And delicious mini scones.
Actually, Blueberry Lavender Skookies. <– squeeee!
The skookie recipe came from Petite Treats; Mini Versions of Your Favorite Baked Delights, a book I was sent to review.
Here is what the publishers said about it –
Good things come in small packages—and now so do all of your favorite desserts!
Introducing “Petite Treats,” an adorable cookbook featuring delicious, bite-sized, reduced-guilt sweets that are sure to charm family and friends at any gathering.
From the authors of “Mini Pies” and founders of the Seattle-based Mini Empire Bakery, “Petite Treats” shows you how to miniaturize everything from tiny fruit scones and mini pies to bite-size brownies and cutesy cannoli—sweet satisfaction guaranteed.
This book includes dozens of full-color photos and easy-to-follow recipes, as well as decorating and presentation tips. Let “Petite Treats” be the star of your next holiday, birthday or cocktail party.
And here are my thoughts –
- a good mix of healthy and decadent treats, all in the miniature
- the instructions were easy, and easy to follow!
- some recipes are vegan (like the skookies)
- they included a mini piecaken (a pie within a cake) so you know that the authors must be on top of their dessert game!
- the pictures make me drool
They gave me the opportunity to share a book with my readers too. Since you guys like me, I knew that y’all love things that are small and sweet! <– that was so corny I think I made myself throw up.
For a chance to win a copy of the book – simply comment on this post by midnight on Monday (February 11th).
