In a momentary fit of energy a few days ago, I decided I needed something bright and sunshine-y in my life. In the form of baked treat, preferably! I made these Orange Coconut Shortbread a month ago on a whim for vegan bake sale day and they were a huge hit. And so, I made them again, because that vibrant orange icing is such a pick me up to the eyes, spirit and taste buds. If you’re needing some happy treats in your life, I highly suggest making these!
It’s been a little long since I posted a recipe. I would love to say I was off doing some fun things, but sadly, I was down with the flu (first time in 15+ years). It is unusual for me to get so sick and I got scared I had lyme disease, after being bitten by a tick a couple weeks earlier. One of the red flags of Lyme is flu-like symptoms. Freaked me out, to say the least, and I went straight to my doctor who did some blood tests and put me on gross antibiotics. The tests came back negative but I’m still finishing out the cycle of antibiotics which makes my stomach quite unhappy. So, I’ve been taking it easy and trying to catch up on all the stuff that I didn’t get to while I was ill — mostly gardening! Those seeds just don’t seem to want to plant themselves.
