daily bliss: spices

I treated myself to a chai latte at S'bucks after a trip to the gym this morning, and while I prefer chai that isn't so processed, I love the spice and the heat, especially on a chilly morning...

And tonight I baked a batch of molasses ginger cookies (Dorie's recipe) and everything smells warm, and comforting, a virtual hug.

Although I am dedicated to eating local foods, I am ever so grateful for access to a world of spices to elevate everyday foods, and will always make room for the whole world in my mostly local kitchen.

*Does anyone have a favorite recipe for homemade chai? I've been stocking up spices to create a batch once I find the right recipe...
