Jam Scones

June 2, 2020 in scones - No Comments

Usually I make a big breakfast Saturday mornings, when our family has more leisure time. However, since we’ve been staying at home for the past 10 weeks, I have been making breakfast most days. (My kid’s favorite is waffles, and you can find the recipe here.) I love a good…

End-of-the-Year Teacher Cookies

May 21, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

My kids have one more week of school and I teach for two. Somehow the distance learning time went fast and slow, and if you have children of your own, you can probably relate. My kids’ teachers have gone above and beyond through all of this and I wanted to…

Fruit Basket Cookies [tutorial]

May 18, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

When I was in elementary school, there was this game we would play in PE called Fruit Basket Upset. It’s a take on musical chairs, but instead of the teacher in charge, a classmate was in charge. There were small groups instead of one large one, and each small groups…

Spring Cookies [tutorial]

May 1, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

I made vanilla cupcakes with these spring fondant toppers to share with everyone. If you’ve never made fondant toppers, they…

April 10, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

It’s Easter weekend! Under normal circumstances, our family would be getting ready for Good Friday in preparation for Easter Sunday. At least our church will be streaming the service. And usually after church we head over to my husband’s parents’ house for the first of two Easter egg hunts. The…

Easter Bunny Cookies

March 26, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

I think bunnies are one of the cutest animals ever. What’s not to love about their fluffiness and cute, squishy faces? My love of bunnies wasn’t always that way. When I was was in 4th grade, my neighbors had a bunny. He was cute, little, and light gray. My family…

Irish Soda Bread

March 16, 2020 in breads - No Comments

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Being a redhead with light skin and freckles, this is my favorite holiday. :) This bread is a cross between a scone and a round loaf. I like it because it is sweet, thanks to the orange zest and currents, and fun to pull off the…
