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

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

My readers are so smart and attentive.
