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!

Gingerbread Scones

If you like Gingerbread, you will love these scones! They are perfect for a cold winter morning breakfast, or in the afternoon with a cup of tea.  This recipe is from Simply Scones. Yum!
2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup cold butter
1 large egg
3 TB molasses
3 TB milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat over to 375-F.  Lightly butter a 10-inch circle in the center of a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or grate it in with a cheese grater (that’s how I prefer to do it).  In a small bowl mix the egg, molasses, milk and vanilla.  Add to dry ingredients and mix until dough forms. You may need to get your hands in there!

Pat the dough into an 8-inch circle in the center of your baking sheet.  Using a pizza roller or sharp knife, cut into 8 wedges. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes.  Drizzle with icing if desired (just mix some powdered sugar and a little milk or water).

Happy Baking!
