Happy Tuesday Ya’ll and a BIG “Happy belated Mother’s Day” to all you mamma’s out there! This was my second Mother’s Day and I felt extremely blessed. Being Oliver’s mamma is probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I couldn’t ask for a sweeter, cuter, cuddlier human being in my life. He is honestly so precious. Nothing else screams “Mother’s Day dessert” to me more then strawberry shortcakes. Maybe because it’s spring time and fruit is in season. Maybe it’s because they are so pretty and elegant. Or maybe it’s because it’s one of the only desserts my mom made us as kids that did not come out of a box. (Sorry mom) It’s a real wonder how on earth I ended up as a Pastry Chef.
I’m going to start this off with a full disclosure: I do not like scones. I think they’re dry and, frankly, overrated. That being said. These scones, these scones are GOOD. If you feel the same way I do (or did) you have to give these a try. We use this recipe daily in the kitchen. People absolutely LOVE them. And when I say love, that’s putting it lightly. People go nuts over these.
Happy Sunday morning ya’ll. Sunday’s are one of my favorite days. I feel like Sunday’s are meant for relaxing, reflecting on your weekend, mentally preparing yourself for the workweek, running errands, preparing a stupid good feast for family dinner, and depending on the season, a cozy day in watching football.
Sunday’s are just the best. You have no obligation or pressure to do anything. It’s literally the day you can do whatever you so choose.
So, of course, I chose to make these muffins. And let me tell you, I’m a happy camper, as is my neighbor whom I left a box outside their door for.
It’s the small things in life right?
It’s officially summer! Name a better way then celebrating spending the day outside, drink in one hand and dessert in the other.
I created a bar that was light and combined fruit and fresh herbs. Does anyone else feel like as soon as nice weather hits they start using an over abundance of fresh herbs in everything? Just me?
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve baked. Ok ok, it’s only been four weeks, but being a pastry chef it’s been four weeks too long. I keep finding myself looking through my book of recipes or looking for new ones on the inter webs when I lay my little one down for a nap and I thought as Easter quickly approaches what better recipe to share than these lemon sugar cookies.
