Welcome to National Coffee Day! Have you experienced the aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingled with the sweet scent of baking cookies? This is a pairing that had stood the test of time, and for a good reason! Joining coffee and cookies together can be magic. These two beloved treats were just meant to be together. The acidity of coffee can balance the sweetness of a cookie, while the cookie’s texture can enhance the coffee’s mouthfeel. Win-Win!
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “The autumnal (fall) equinox marks the turning point when darkness begins to win out over daylight. Essentially, our hours of daylight—the period of time each day between sunrise and sunset—have been growing slightly shorter each day since the summer solstice in June, which is the longest day of the year (at least in terms of daylight)…”
Did you know May 11th each year is a National day called “Eat What You Want Day?” That’s Right!! It’s a day to enjoy foods and have a little extra fun with foods. Maybe even try something new you’ve always thought about but decided it was too many calories or just not healthy enough.
We here are Boo-Shaw Bakery found this day/week, ‘Hunt for Happiness’ and would love to encourage everyone to celebrate it with us! This is not about “always being over-joyed with happiness” or “always experiencing a level of euphoria,” but it is about appreciating all of the little things in life. It’s about finding joy each day in the simple things. . . Honestly, we here at Boo-Shaw Bakery feel that one simple joy is enjoying the prefect treat / dessert by yourself or with others! And of course we’ll recommend Boo-Shaw Bakery cookies/desserts as the perfect treat!
Did you know there was a day called ‘National Hot Toddy Day?’ That’s right! There most certainly is. If you occasional imbibe an alcohol beverage, why not make this a fun day to celebrate on your own or with friends! 😀
What is a “hot toddy’ you ask? Well, to make a classic hot toddy, you’ll need hot water, whisky (or bourbon or rum), honey, and lemon. A cinnamon stick adds a touch of warmth but is optional. The warm drink is created in a kettle and has been known to be best enjoyed by the fire. Think of classic movies with the snow falling outside. ❄️❄️❄️ If you live in the warmer states, feel free to put snow falling on the television and pretend 😉.
Did you know there is such a thing as ‘National Christmas Movie Marathon Day?” Well, there certainly is and it’s today – December 23rd. Sounds like a perfect day to grab some family and friends (or enjoy some quite time by yourself), grab some delicious beverages (fruity, chocolaty or even ‘spiked’) and as we like to say, “grab some awesome treats to share or keep all to yourself!” What is the perfect treat you may ask? Well, Boo-Shaw Bakery desserts of course!!
