Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte and 2011 Susan Branch Calendar Giveaway


I have been a fan of Susan Branch for many MANY years! I just adore her work. She writes and designs with a certain whit and charm that is unmistakable.

She shares delicious recipes, creative ideas for entertaining and decorating and of course, her beautifully amazing artwork is breathtaking!

Susan shares her recipe for a Pumpkin Latte in her Autumn book. But since I’m not a coffee lover, I made mine with Chai Tea.
