Today has been a great excuse for me and the kids to make these cookies. These cookies are great all year round, but their cute snowy white looks make them the perfect cookie for a cookie exchange or holiday party too!
It has been so cold here in the Bay Area. This year it has been colder and rainier than usual. Have you been freezing too? I almost feel guilty complaining because we desperately need the rain. Unfortunately, cold rainy weather isn’t ideal when you are trying to stay healthy!

Thank goodness for Traditional Medicinal Teas. I was so excited when the opportunity came to share these teas with you. I have been drinking their Breathe Easy, Organic Throat Coat, and their Organic Echinacea Plus for many years.
My kids even ask for Throat Coat as soon as they feel a sore throat coming on! (And you know it tastes great if your kids are willing to drink it!) The flavors taste great to grownups too, and they are perfect for this horrible weather we have been having lately.
Traditional Medicinals is the only US tea company committed to using Pharmacopoeial grade herbs, 100% non-GMO and 98.9% of botanical raw ingredients used are certified organic.
I have to admit, it was really hard to write about just one tea variety when I drink so many of their teas. (They even have fabulous detox teas to help you get a fresh start!)
Walmart has all of the Traditional Medicinal tea flavors, including my very favorite Breathe Easy! I love to jog and this tea is a huge help to helping me keep my lungs healthy all year long. This tea has eucalyptus, fennel and licorice are combined with Bi Yan Pian extract, a traditional Chinese formula of 11 different herbs. With all of those ingredients, I can assure you the tea still tastes delicious, with just a hint of spice.
Traditional Medicinal teas are a healthy beverage with healing remedies.
