In light of yesterday’s post , I have to say that I’ve really been working on celebrating the small things in life more and more lately. I love applying this to the things that really matter to the heart and relationships, but there are so many times that simple flavors really get lost in the shuffle of this ever-growing foodie world we live in.
Now you should know, I am ALL ABOUT flavor. I love to mix and match, try new combinations, and new spins on classic recipes make my little food-blogging heart go pitter-patter. In short I love it, and it’s not likely I’ll turn a whole lot of things down. But sometimes I sit back and wonder, what about the simple flavors? The classics are classics for a reason – because they taste good that way . And usually the classics are made of of really simple flavor building blocks that need no help from other ingredients.

- 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
