Since Christmas has passed, it's okay to talk about a magazine that features hearts on the cover, isn't it? I don't know about you, but I love the simple yet elegant idea of using heart-shaped slices of strawberry to embellish a cake. (And why haven't I thought of this before?)
Tea Time always has at least a few recipes I'd like to try, and this time, I was also inspired by the way they displayed macarons in this stemmed bowl. I have some similar glass bowls I purchased at a Southern Living at Home party years ago, and I don't pull them out nearly often enough. Macarons, truffles, shortbread bites … now I'm thinking of even more creative ways I can use these pretty scalloped bowls!
I always love to read about tea production around the world, and this time I enjoyed the article on tea by editor Lorna Reeves, who actually visited Sri Lanka herself and learned about Ceylon tea. A fun read!
And here's my question: How do you all keep track of favorite articles in Tea Time? I've decided I'm going to start keeping a log (printed or computerized, I'm not sure which) of favorite articles, recipes, and topics. That way, I'll be able to revisit favorite articles without thumbing through more than a decade's worth of issues. I have them all, and yet I rarely go back to those early issues. Do you? How do you keep track of your favorite articles? Or do you?
