Fancy is rarely what it seems. Fancy sugars. Fancy honey. Fancy salts. Little kitchen gems that add a boost of flavor and an extra ooohhh and aaaahhh from guests… they’re actually easy kitchen tricks. Thing is, you don’t have to tell a soul how easy they are. Let the kitchen glory and flavor victories be yours all yours.
Today we’re making fancy, fruit sugars. The fragrant, brightly colored sugars you might use to rim a margarita or daiquiri drink, sprinkle on cookies, or top your cinnamon sugar toast.
Banana sugar on cinnamon sugar toast? Bonkers good.
Pineapple sugar rimming a daiquiri glass? Yes, very much.
Strawberry sugar on sugar cookies? How divine!
It’s Fall which is basically jazz-hand season for new cookbooks. This book, by Adrianna of A Cozy Kitchen is one of my absolute favorites.
Not only are there cozy and comforting recipes, but the book is also filled with crafts and outings and life inspiration. It’s about living a happy, full life… and it just feels very very good. The Year of Cozy.
This might be my gifting book this holiday season. Go ahead and forget that if we’re friends… spoiler alert.
Let’s make some sugars extra sweet. It’s easy as pie. Easier than pie. Way way easier than pie.
