Kick start your day with a good breakfast

BEE MINE

William Morrow, 2013

Sometimes a romance novel does your heart good. I needed a complete rest from work, from contentious world affairs, from issues like loss and grief, bullying and life’s unfairness, so I picked up Sarah-Kate Lynch’s The Wedding Bees.

A young beekeeper moves to NYC’s Lower East Side where she and her bees and their honey make the cynical, distrusting world around them a much sweeter place. Could’ve loved it more if there were recipes included for all the mouthwatering treats she makes and shares: honey loaf, lemon honey cookies, and honey roasted chicken, to name a few.

Now that I have a jones for honey cookies, I found an enticing, quick recipe for One-Pot Honey-Oatmeal Drop Cookies in Nancy Baggett’s Simply Sensational Cookies .

I’ll make a batch (40-45 2″ cookies) to take down to North Carolina this Thursday as a thank-you gift to my Airbnb host and energy for my nephew and his housemates as they run from one graduation event to the next. And they’ll make the perfect quick bite for breakfast on my way to the airport, a place nowadays that could always use a sweetener!
