In Summer I adore fresh berries and a perfect use for them is in strawberry almond scones and blackberry scones. In Winter a white chocolate mocha scone can really hit the spot. It's indulgent, comfort food. In Spring a campfire scone can warm you up when there is still a chill in the air. But Fall just might be my favorite time of year for scones. I recommend oatmeal crunch scones with maple glaze, pumpkin pecan scones or maple pecan scones.  A new Fall favorite? These Apple Pie Scone...

I recently did five days with NO SUGAR. You guys ... that was hard! I love a good treat at the end of the day and I love a fun breakfast to start the day. But recently it's been sugar overload with parties and more parties and lots of time to bake. I needed those five days to de-sugar my body. But the night before my sugar-free stretch ended I was already thinking about how to reward myself the next morning. And these blackberry scones were the perfect way to to do it. The right amount of flaky,...

Sprinkles are an easy way to turn anything festive! Throw some on top of imperfect cupcakes and suddenly they are party worthy. Add them to ice cream and you've got the start of a sundae. Sprinkle them on your late night hot cocoa with whipped cream and you've got a real indulgence. And when you put them on top of a loaf cake, along with a light sprinkling of streusel, you have an easy birthday-worthy breakfast or party treat to share.     Taken from Well Floured.

  I've been really into quinoa salads recently. They are protein-packed, offer the base for a million different flavor combinations and trick me into believing it's summer whenever. This one by Closet Cooking was tried and gulped down recently.  Add new comment...

 Snickers flavors in a grown up cake? Yes, please!   It's that slightly peanutty nougat center that sets this cake apart from your classic chocolate and buttercream cake. And  be sure you don't skip the peanuts inside and on top of the cake because they are just the perfect textural crunch in between all this creamy, velvety goodness!     Taken from Goodie Godmother.

I've made quite a number of pumpkin muffins in my life but after trying these out, they quickly replaced all others as the favorite!   They have it all: a strong, spicy flavor, a deliciously moist base, crumbly streusel perfection and a glaze.   The glaze is where it's at. Maple and pumpkin were just meant to be paired together into perfect autumn goodness.      Now I know it's a long time til Autumn but in case you are craving a bit of cold air, leaves under your feet o...

If summer is for making cupcake flavors you might not normally try, then it's also for making the most obnoxiously (festive?) colored sugar cookies with your kids! Am I right?     Once you try a swig sugar cookie, you won't go back. They are absolute pillows of softness and full of rich vanilla flavor.   My friend Christy made me promise NEVER to share this recipe with her. It's too dangerous. She likes buttercream and sugar cookies as much as I do. I'm sharing it with you, but it...
