Whole Wheat Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

For our lovely girly July 4th weekend, I knew we’d need something sweet, summery, and a little bit healthy for breakfasts. When I came across this recipe for Whole Wheat Lemon Poppy Seed Scones (which are pronounced skahns, not skohns by the way…), I knew I’d hit the jackpot. No white sugar (though brown sugar … Continue reading

Breakfast Pastries with Homemade Jam

So, now that you have a good 4 cups (at least) of strawberry rhubarb jam all to yourself after giving some away to your beloved friends and family, what do you do with it?

Quest for the Perfect Scottish Oatcakes

Growing up with a Scottish mother, I became addicted to certain foods that are hard to find in the US (or that aren’t the typical way or eating them in the US),  i.e. English breakfast tea, weak, with milk and sugar, margarine and marmite, and OATCAKES!

Tribute a Julia Child – Croissants Part II. Rolling in the Butter!

What title better embodies Julia’s cooking style??

Patent pending… But I digress. This … Continue reading

Who likes bananas and peanut butter? Part II!

For my beloved box office peoples’ going away party I decided to make my peanut butter banana bread as a loaf and, as you know, they’re vegan, so, the bread was vegan! I found the base banana bread recipe here at Another One Bites the Crust (how much do you love that name?) and added … Continue reading

Tribute a Julia Child – Croissants! Part I. Basic Dough

When I started watching Julia Child’s shows and reading her books, the first thing I really wanted to make was croissants…not boeuf bourgignon, not souffles, croissants!
