I had no specific blogging plans for December but then saw that Andi, Tanya Patrice, and Tamara are hosting A Month of Faves again and it seemed like a good way to add some positivity back into my blog and life. I've just been far too focused on the worst things in the world lately. Head over to any of their blogs to see the Monday-Friday prompts if you're interested in participating!
Right now my favorite things are:
The French press: I somehow never had one of these until about a year ago. Now I don't know how I ever lived without it. I'm a blonde/medium roast gal and I always use dairy creamer. My current one makes about 2 cups of coffee--one for me, one for the husband--but we're thinking of getting one that's double the size.
Sticky Fingers scone mix and a scone pan: I find myself making scones about once a week these days because they are comforting and yummy. My favorite flavors right now are Tart Cherry, Cranberry, and Blueberry. (They make gluten-free mixes too.) And the ceramic scone pan from World Market makes them all into nice, pretty triangles!
Marketspice Tea: When I'm not drinking coffee, I'm drinking tea and I bought a nice big bag of loose leaf Cinnamon-Orange tea when I was at Pike Place Market at the beginning of November. It's so delicious that I don't add any milk or sweetener or anything. (There's also a decaf version if you aren't a caffeine addict like me.)
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Heel Repair: This isn't a glamorous thing but it's the time of year when I have to try and fix all of the damage of a summer of flip-flops and bare feet. This stuff smells great (cocoa and peppermint) and works well when I remember to use it nightly.
