Why This Blog?


Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.

I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.

These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.

I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!

Granola Scones

Here's another great recipe from my trusty Simply Scones cookbook. These are no wimpy scones! They are hearty and filling -- delicious plain, with butter, or with jam or apple butter. I made some granola the other day (yum!), so I used it in this recipe. Store-bought granola will work just fine too!

Granola Scones
 Makes 8 scones

1-2/3 cup flour
1/ 3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
 2-1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter, chilled
1/3 cup milk
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cup granola

Preheat oven to 375-F.  Lightly butter a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients except the granola.  Using a cheese grater, grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients,  stirring often.

In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk and vanilla.  Add to flour mixture.  Stir or use fingers to knead in the granola.

Pat mixture  into an 8-inch circle directly on the baking sheet.  Using a knife or rolling pizza cutter, cut circle into 8 wedges.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Happy Baking!
