This year hasn't started off with a bang for me...more of a fizzle. You see where I live there is this thing they call "cedar fever." Sure we don't have twenty below temperatures or three feet of snow in our front yards but guys, cedar sucks! It's like living with a forever cold, it's totally zapped my energy, but I was craving cookies. Sometimes even if you're a little under the weather you just can't fight a craving! I think they actually did me some good. :)
I had a big bag of cappuccino mix sitting in my pantry that just wasn't getting used and I think I made a good decision throwing some into these cookies. It gives them a great spicy flavor base, and add the cinnamon chips and pecans and you have one great comforting cookie. Now I used a pumpkin spice mix, but if you or not a fan or have a different kind on hand, try a different flavor and play with the mix ins.

Whew! That year just flew right by didn't it!?
I had a lot of fun experimenting with new recipes on the blog and can’t wait to try out some new ideas. The year was full of fun, a few new places, and of course a ton of sweets. I was lucky to get to visit and eat and drink my way through New Orleans, Seattle, Portland, Boston, and New York this year. They were all such beautiful and interesting places it would be hard to pick a favorite.
For the upcoming year I hope to travel, write more, pick up a new hobby, and work on my lack of photography skills. :) I really need work on my time management and using each day to its fullest potential. What do you guys want to accomplish in the new year?
Many thanks to those of you that take the time out of your day to read and comment on my posts. It really puts a smile on my face to hear from you.
Here is to an exciting, beautiful, wonderful 2014!! Cheers!
