Citrus Lime Scones

If you checked out the Facebook Page last week, you would know that I felt really guilty that I didn’t make a true post last week. The truth is that I was holed up in my friend’s kitchen for 3 days baking. I don’t have all the photos from the epic tea party where all the food was featured yet, but I have some photos from some scones I made earlier!

Little Boy Blue Sugar Cookies!

There’s something amazing about sugar cookies. They come out looking exactly the same way they look when they go in the oven. I have always loved sugar cookies and one of my friends is having a baby shower for her baby boy! There’s no better time than now to make some boy friendly sugar cookies!

Black Pepper Cheddar Scones

I have a soft spot for a good delicious scone. I just can’t help it. They are supposed to be light, fluffy and they crumble in the most delightful way possible. When I’m at a coffee shop, I will always scour the scone selection and I get so excited when I peruse their flavours. It is unfortunate that not every place can make a good scone though. So many times, cafe’s seem to overbake, over knead or over… something. This is probably why I have been so hesitant to make scones for so long.

And to change the subject completely for a moment, what’s the difference between scones and biscuits?

PB&J Cupcakes!

It’s a bittersweet occasion today. Our good friends are moving away and I can honestly say that I am going to miss them dearly. In celebration to their greener pastures, all of our friends and family are throwing them a spectacular (child friendly) going away party in their honour! Since I know their kids are a huge fan of Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches, I have made Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes!

(Lazy) Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Last year, my dear husband texted me, “Sweetie, can you bake me 4 dozen cupcakes for my D.A.R.E. class for tomorrow? Please and thank you!”. In a frenzy, I ran out to the grocery store and randomly picked up 4 boxes of cake mix and ingredients for icing.

The astute reader will say, “Hey, Kat! That makes 8 dozen cupcakes! That’s too many boxes!”

My readers are so smart and attentive.

Cinnamon Walnut Swirl No Knead Bread

The kneadless bread is so alluring. It takes such little effort and beautiful artisan bread comes out! The only thing this dough requires of you is time and patience. Heck, if you like to sleep, you can do the time, patience and sleep all at the same time! You could do almost anything in the meantime. We decided to go on a nice hike up a mountain. I would show you photos, but I was trying to avoid being mosquito dinner.
