• Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice vs. Hot Apple Spice
    Whenever I remember to check my blog stats, there is one post that always comes out on top, an old review of Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. This is Harney's best selling tea, and in my review I was surprised to learn that it contains artificial flavors. Turns out that many of you were surprised as well, and sounded off in the comments section. I was content to leave it all at that, until ... read more

  • Homemade Matcha Whipped Cream
    There are few things that I love more than freshly made whipped cream. Once I discovered how easy it was to do at home, there was no way that I could ever go back to the store-bought stuff. Experimenting with different flavors is fun and it is a great way to dress up a basic dessert. I was making instant cheesecake when the inspiration struck to mix green tea into my whipped cream topping. This ... read more

    Epicurian delight Have you ever tried Taiwan’s “stinky tofu?” it’s usually deep-fried and is sold at night markets in most of Taiwan’s larger cities. It IS stinky and it IS an acquired taste; one that I have yet to master. Not certain I ever will; or really want to. The past few years, however, have seen another kind of “tofu” in Taiwan. It appears as a result of a new machine that has taken ... read more

Lately I've been reading about the history of porcelain for an exciting project that I'll share soon, and I came across information on bone china. I have many vintage bone china teacups in my collection, but never really thought about what bone china actually is. I assumed it was called 'bone' because of the color. This is partially true, but I never thought it would pertain ... read more
