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!

Oaty Chocolate Cinnamon Scones

I tweaked a recipe I already had and came up with these delicious and hearty scones. I think they would also be good if you replace the chocolate chips with raspberries or blueberries. Enjoy!

Oaty Chocolate Cinnamon Scones

2 cups flour
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
¼ cup sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 TB baking powder
¼ tsp cream of tarter
½ cup butter, cold
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
½ cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.  Grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients, stirring until incorporated (or cut butter into small pieces and cut in with a pastry cutter). In a small bowl, mix the cream, eggs and vanilla. Add liquid to the dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips until mixture sticks together.

Pat dough into an 8” cake pan then turn out and cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a cookie sheet and bake 15-17 minutes. Serve warm.

Happy Baking!
