I know shopping at IKEA is kind of addicting, but some people actually go there for an inexpensive meal or to pick up a few groceries that they just can’t get at their local stores. I love going though the small food section and looking for new and exc…
It’s a good thing that Monday was a holiday! No school meant that I got to sleep in a bit and I really needed it after my cruise vacation. I also need something quick and easy to make for out lazy morning breakfast. I opened up my trusty America`s Test Kitchen Magazine and found the perfect Maple Pecan Scones to make. This is a small batch recipe that just makes four scones. It’s the perfect addition to your bacon and eggs if you aren’t in the mood for pancakes or waffles.
I find that scones can be kind of unappetizing because they get dried out during baking, but these were light and fluffy and stayed moist on the inside. I’ll also admit that the maple drizzle over the top helped as well. You can’t go wrong with a recipe testing in America’s Test Kitchen. They tested different flours, butter quantity and even types of milk.
They think of everything and it makes it pretty easy for a tired mama to get it right!
Don’t feel like baking in the mornings? No problem! I also enjoyed these maple syrup drenched scones for dessert. Serve them with an after dinner coffee or tea and you’re set!
I think I need to make more scones! I really loved these and would have seriously eaten all four of them if I could have gotten away with it. They were amazing!

Ch-ch-ch-cherries!!I LOVE cherries. Fresh. plump and juicy cherries. I actually stocked up and froze a bunch of cherries and have been using them in my breakfast smoothies. So, I figured I’d stuff them into one of my favorite treats – Monkey Bread…
I LOVE Monkey Bread! Love, love, love it!! It’s easy to make and feeds a ton of people… which, for me, are also the downfalls of it… It’s too easy to make and it’s just two of us who eat it. So, I wanted to make a smaller batch of pull-apart bread …
