What does community mean to you?? Deep in the world of college essays, this question is one my son is working hard to define. (Easier than the one we posted last week though!).
For me, though, it wasn't so difficult. Entering the food blogging world a little over three years ago, I've found myself involved in a community filled with wonderfully supportive people from around the world. Sometimes I stop and am simply amazed at the virtual friends I look forward to catching up with every few days. I feel like I know their families and I enjoy sharing a cup of coffee over some of the fabulous food that shows up post after post on their mouthwatering blogs.
Liz, is part of my community, and I feel truly blessed to have come to know her over the years. Her blog's title is "That Skinny Chick Can Bake" (you do follow her, don't you??), and I'm here to vouch that, indeed… she can bake!! Liz produces recipe after recipe that has Liv asking, "Mom… can we make that?", and every one we've tried has been a treat.
This recipe is no different. As a matter of fact, Liz sent this post to me last week, and within hours of receiving it we had a batch of toasty Biscoff Toffee Cookies in our own kitchen. Liv made them herself and actually brought me a few, still warm from the oven. Bringing the rest to her dance team at school, Liz increased her San Diego community even more, and now has a High School Dance Team all agreeing… that skinny chick really can bake!!
Liz… thanks not only for the cookies and the break, but for making my community a better place. One of these days I hope to share coffee and a treat in real life, but until then I'll be virtually tasting every treat that comes across your page.
And now, I give you Liz!
It’s so exciting to be guest posting for Kim as she is taking a well deserved break. I met Kim in my early blogging days…and knew right away that she was the kind of gal I’d be immediate friends with if we crossed paths in real life. She exudes warmth and kindness and it’s obvious that family is her priority. I love seeing her beautiful food photos, recipes and stories about her travels and children on her blog. I decided to share some irresistible cookies that would be perfect after school snacks for her kids….and yours!
I have had a jar of crunchy Biscoff in my pantry way longer than I care to admit. I checked the expiration date and breathed a sigh of relief...I could still make the cookies I spied on one of my favorite blogs, The Cafe Sucre Farine (http://www.
Thanks, Kim, for inviting me to you spectacular blog!
