Pastry Break

This week has been ridiculously hectic.

So hectic that I only had time for one Pastry Break for this whole week!!

Pastries are amongst my Favorites. They are like a warm hug on a winter night, or a refreshing dip in the pool on a hot day. They hit the right spot.

A coffee break with my sister is by far one of my favorite things. I love these photos and those pastries look heavenly. XO

Can I get a witness for pastry love?!! I love a quiet morning tea. Or a midnight tea time for that matter. Unwinding is wondrous.

Is it cliche to say "coffee break?" Saturday mornings when I wake up and make a cup of French press, ahh...it's wonderful!

My co-worker and I usually meet up at Starbucks each morning to grab some coffee or chai. While I have been going off coffee for a while, it does help start off the day.

Ooooh...those little tartlets look down right scrumtious!

I love a good hot cuppa tea during the mid-day. Especially when it's cold outside and I just walked home from classes.

Yummy- can't resist a perfect pastry :) I usually have a snack around the "3 oclock slump" at work, lol.

YUM! We just had a cream puff pastry today at a tea room. It was divine. I wish I knew how to make that stuff! :)

My favorite little break? Starbucks, hands down:)

Maki said...

I had a sweet bread with iced latte - it was just divine!!!! My favorite little break is a quite time after my girls go to bed :)

My favorite little "break" is icecream! It just fits every time, no matter how cold or warm the weather is!
btw, I voted :)

I don't know if this qualifies as a break, but... I love Saturday morning, when I make myself a breakfast smoothie and sit down at the kitchen table to watch Bill Cunningham's On The Street video on the NY Times website. My ritual.

Pastry breaks are good. My break each week comes in the form of playing soccer. It allows me to get away from straightforward running and leave the stresses of the week behind before beginning a new one.

Those tartlets look amazing! I love to take a coffee break with a friend when I have a chance. I also love a good cupcake break (preferably Sprinkles), yum!

Once again, I LOVE your art! That fruit layered tart looks good enough to eat, even though it's a drawing!

My favorite break food is (are you ready for this?) an old fashioned Carvel soft serve ice cream cone. Their soft serve tastes like frozen 7 minute frosting!

I live for my daily java break!
