You know what the worst part about this is? It’s the party they’re having in the West Wing right now at my expense. They like to win, and then they like to gloat.
I’m sure you’re wrong. There are very serious men and women at the White House. There’s no cause to gloat.
msamberpriley That girl on the left was so unsure. She didn’t appreciate her chocolate skin or nappy hair. One of the very few black kids in her school, she always felt excluded and didn’t necessarily fit in. Being teased and called the “N word” more times than enough, made her want to be invisible and unseen. She thought different meant ugly. I thank God for her journey. Because that woman on the right learned to love her skin, accept and appreciate her heritage, and even grew some hips, boobs, and thunder thighs and learned to love those too. I grew from an inwardly insecure girl to a very proud and confident black woman. I was NOT made for obscurity. I was created to overcome and help others know they too can overcome. I am not where I want to be but I am far from what I used to be. It feels good to love me! #TransformationTuesday I know most ppl’s transformation are from big to skinny but mine kind of went in reverse. sue me!
taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪
MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this.
The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.
***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control.
If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.
