I have a treat for you today.
One of my bloggy colleagues, Katie from Nourishing Simplicity, and I released our first eBooks around the same time. This week we are doing a give away of each others. She is giving away a copy of Much Ado About Chicken, and I am doing a giveaway her book Steeped – Simple Nourishing Teas and Treats (affiliate link).
First of all, how fun is it to have an entire book focusing on fun teas, drinks, and teas?
With two daughters I foresee a lot of tea parties. Probably a LOT fancier then the one pictured below (and NO car or train plates allowed!)
Steeped has everything you need to host an amazing tea party. Lemonades, scones, sandwich fillings, curds, ice creams, cupcakes, and of course teas. The book starts with recipes to make your own specialty blends.
But unlike most tea time recipes, the recipes in Steeped are all based on real, natural, healthy foods. Scones without refined sugar and flour? Please pass a couple.
There are a lot of soaked recipes– recipes that allow the flour to soak in an acidic medium to help make them more digestible and nutritious. Plus some high-protein grain free options with almond and coconut flours. The fats are natural (think coconut oil and butter) and she uses unrefined flours and sugars. That’s the kind of tea party I can really get behind.
As happy as I am that all the recipes are nourishing, the thing that excites me the most are all of the unique recipes. Lavender ice cream, chamomile cupcakes, earl grey sorbet. I have wanted to bake with lavender, rose petals, and chamomile before but have never been brave enough to do it!
Here is a sample of some of the over fifty, nourishing, unique recipes in Steeped (you bet that’s an affiliate link. I am on a roll today):
