Scent of a Baker Fall Issue November 2006

This is Irish magic in a tea blend. It is loose tea, with some amazing touches that turn this into a beautiful gift or hostess tea (especially if you pack it with a soda bread). It starts with strong, pure Assam tea leaves and then…..The rest is a secret. If you can find longer or full leaf Assam (as opposed to the finer tea leaves), that is better.
Wouldn’t this make a great centerpiece? It takes a low-yeast white dough (aka as ‘dead dough’) an easy assembly, and a truck load of egg yolky, egg wash. Makes two smaller ones or one larger one.
This will take the chill out of the air. A wonderful hostess potable to serve throughout the fall into winter – but perfect for Thanksgiving. You could also add a touch of vanilla extract to this, or even a few bags of green tea or chamomile. There is also Lynch's Cranberry Apple Tea which makes a great base. I serve this in glass mugs with slices of Red Delicious apple on top or even a slice of clementine.
This is my own recipe for a non-chemical cleaner. I use it on floor and counters. It’s a light scent and a natural cleaner you can feel good about.
All the ingredients for this are available from aromatherapy as well as soap suppliers (check Scent of a Baker for some great sources). This recipe uses both essential oils as well as fragrance oils. A heady bouquet of talc that is lightly lavender, with hints of other special scents.
Heard of One-Minute Manicure on Oprah? Well, this is a similar concept you can cook up at home. Use other fragrant oils (any toiletry and oils place online as them – Sweet Cakes, Nature Valley, Bramble Berry, From Nature With Love, and Lebermuth Company are some of our favorites), some sea salt and you have an instant spa treatment. Rub some on your hands to soften baker’s hard working hands or gently, on your face to rejuvenate your natural glow. This is a citrus, almond and vanilla approach. You can also alter the scents: use lavender and mint, or lily of the valley fragrance or essential oils – whatever you like.
These are deep, dark, moist, delicious brownies, enlivened with the gorgeous fragrance of pure coffee ‘absolute’ an intense, pure coffee extra my friend Anya McCoy of Anya’s Garden Perfumes sent me. It results in brownies that waft an incredible perfume, born of the flavor and fragrance fusion of the coffee extrsact, with the vanilla and chocolate notes. Anya McCoy
