Earl Grey Infused Whipped Cream with Ginger Syrup
1 cup Heavy Whipped Cream (or Heavy Cream)
1 Earl Grey Tea Bag (can substitute with different type of tea)
1 tablespoon Powdered Sugar
1 tablespoon Ginger Syrup
Put a small pot over low heat, pour heavy whipped cream and put the tea bag in, stir occasionally. Turn the stove off when heavy cream starts to bubble. Remove tea bag and pour heavy cream into a bowl with a strainer on top (to separate leftover tea leaves). Put the bowl of heavy cream into the fridge until it’s cold.
In a large mixing bowl, put sugar, ginger syrup and heavy cream (it should be completely cooled down by now) in. Beat heavy cream with an electric hand mixer until thickens and starts to get foamy.
There’s no better way to show who you are than scatter your lovely things around the home.

Love every piece I spotted at Amore di Mamma, a cute online store for kidswear.
I was processing an image that I took of Heather Taylor and suddenly had a spark of curiosity – what if I zoom in on her shirt and see what pattern I’d get? What I got was a beautiful soft image with pretty colors and pattern! So now, thanks to that bit of curiosity, I have another fun personal project to “play” with. And, of course, thanks to Heather!
“I tend to wake up early–before the rest of my household wakes up (my husband and cat) and so breakfast-time is my quiet time. I become pensive and think about what I want to accomplish during my day. I wish the l’il Boomba in my belly a good morning. I have my earl grey tea with a teaspoon of twitter and a splash of a magazine to get connected and inspired. I take my prenatal vitamins with a little OJ, and then enjoy a later breakfast with the boys when they wake up. I feel fresh and alert in the mornings, grateful for the opportunity to enjoy another day.”
