~Meet Glory from Glorious Treats ~

Sunday, December 5, 2010

I hope you all  are having a great weekend, I finally started on my Holiday baking this weekend, yesterday I made 2 batches of honey cookies and linzer cookies. I still have to make sugar cookies and lots of other treats to share with our friends.That is a the plan for this Sunday.

Today I have a really special treat for you, Glory from Glorious Treats graciously agreed to do a 10 question interview for Haniela's.
I met Glory via Flickr  over 2 years ago and I'm constantly amazed by her wonderful and creative ideas that she now shares on her beautiful blog GLORIOUS TREATS.

We haven't met in person, but we have exchanged a lot of emails, and phone calls and I even got the taste of Glory's Sugar Cookies and absolutely amazing homemade Toffee..that I'm hoping Glory will share the recipe  really soon...and I'm not begging.;-)), I mean do you blame me? Have a look at the photo below...Yum
  Toffee... success!

Our lives re really busy right now and I just felt it was important to catch up with a friend, so I asked Glory 10 questions and she was so sweet to spent time answering them; and since both of us love pictures Glory and I  picked some of our personal favorites from her Photo Gallery.
~Thank you Glory ~

 1. I know your name is Glory and your blog is called Glorious Treats, derived from your name Glory, but still  I always wonder how did you think of the name
 Glorious Treats? It is such a perfect fit !
Glory : "A few years ago a friend was throwing around names I could use for a bakery and „Glorious Treats“ was a combo of a few of her suggestions.  I have no plans for a bakery by the way... but I do still like the name!"

2. What is your favorite ingredient in baking?
Glory : "I think I’ll have to go with sugar... without sugar, it would be pretty tricky to make all of my sweet treats=)"

3. How would you describe THE perfect dessert?
Glory : "It should have several different textures, and maybe even a few layers of flavors too.  It would have to include Chocolate... but in combination with an accent flavor like caramel, coconut or mint."

4. Milk, Dark or White Chocolate?
Glory : "Milk Chocolate is my first choice, but Dark Chocolate is a close second."

5. What was your favorite party project so far and why?
Glory : "My daughter’s candy party.  I planned the details (and bought things for it) for over six months, but I really enjoyed the planning, and the party came together just as I had envisioned."

8. One gift you’ll never forget ?
Glory : "A giant teddy bear I got at Christmas when I was 8.  The box was the biggest under the tree and I felt so special that it was for me!  I still have the bear... in fact my three year old is using it for a pillow tonight."

10. If money was no object what would you BUY yourself for Christmas?

    Callye, what happened with gingerbread ? I made it yesterday too,slightly altered and it is pretty yummy.I'm almost done with decorating those, but still have to make lots of other cookies.
    I'll see if I can get hold of Santa so he can bring you some Honey Cookies.;-))
