Let's Have Another Piece of Pie

Sometimes life cries out for a nice break from the daily routine …… a pie break, so to speak. A time to sit, to listen, to reflect. To taste the sweetness of life.

How I Love Thee




Cardamom – How I do love you.  I opened the jar and drew in a deep breath.  Can I sprinkle you in my laundry and on my pillows and toss you in my closets?  May I wear a sack filled with your loveliness around my neck and lift you to my nose and breathe in deep whenever I want?

When I open your pods and empty out the delicious innards of your soul – my mouth waters and cannot wait to crush you and add you to my wassail and my shortbread.





You, O Cardamom, are God’s gift to mankind, well, at least to ME.  And I am thankful for the opening of my senses whenever you are around.

  1. not familiar with it, but am always willing to try something new!

  2. Love Cardamom too!! And such a cool name for a spice.

  3. I’ve got a container where I keep all my spices – and every time I take the lid off I can smell the excitement of Christmas…

  4. This is such a magic ingredient! My mom add it in tea and coffee, it give them wonderful aroma while sipping. :) ahh

  5. I’ve never heard of this. Must go and find some! :D

  6. Cardamons are used in perfumes. I liked them in my curries but some dishonest merchants sell those that have been bleached (white pods, which has been used). Always go green ;-)
