We are excited to share a delicious recipe with you from a local Portland blogger, Hummingbird High! These soft, dark chocolate chip cookies have a tasty twist, the butter is infused with the comforting flavors of Stash Earl Grey black tea. Yum!
We’ve been snowed in at Stash Tea HQ! This only happens about once every 4 years here in Portland, so we’ve been playing hooky and making the most of it ;)
Our snow day essentials? Boots, a sled, a knitting project, a heater, and several cups of hot tea!

Where did you grow up and go to school?
I grew up in Oregon, primarily in Eugene and Salem. I went to college at the University of Oregon and got my BFA in oil painting. When I figured out that I wouldn’t be able get a job in my field, I moved to New York City to pursue a career as a Pastry Chef and enrolled at the French Culinary Institute.
How did you end up becoming an artist?
I was raised by a family who used art making as a wonderful way to pass the time and an important way to show personal creativity, so I grew up drawing and painting and quickly developed an interest in art. I realized in high school that there was nothing else I’d rather pursue, so I followed that path to the art program at the University of Oregon. I so often doubted my abilities when I was in college, constantly comparing myself to other students with more technical skill. It took me separating myself from the institution to really discover my own unique style and to be confident with my work.

- Head for the rugged Oregon Coast and take the gorgeous drive up the coast on US-101; stop at Newport and visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium, or at Tillamook, famous for its cheese and ice cream.
