Scones?! Not so much

Hey friends! <3 How was your day!?! Can't believe that yesterday I was posting how proud of myself I was for making scones. Only to be sorely disappointed 2 hours later after both the kiddo's and hubs decided. Not so much! :( They all hated it! The kids told me is was crust, and hubs said "not to hurt your feelings, but I took 1 bite and put it back." Very sad day for me!

Of course and easy snack to make and deli-sh would not be enjoyed! Baaaa hum bug!

Today was full of work! Tomorrow is full of work! Hope you all are staying cool in this crazy hot weather we are having!

Have you tried any new recipes lately!?!? Send them to me so I can post them!

The art of Scones

Hello Friends! <3 Hope you are all having a relaxing day of rest!

Remember yesterday when I told you all I wanted to try scones well... I give you my story ;)

For some odd reason I have always been scared of scones. Not really knowing what they were or how to make them. I very clearly stayed away from them. However, recently when visiting a friends coffee shop, I tried her amazing chocolate chip/walnut scones. I got home thinking I MUST try these

Today, I did it! I am pleased to say, scones are easy peasy to make and are FABULOUS! They have yet to be kid tested as they are still napping. However, I'm fairly confident these will not last through the week like I had planned. I'm giving it 2 days once both the kids and hubs try it out!

Is there a recipe you are scared to try? Want me to try it first?! Just leave a comment and I will!!!

Also stay tuned for another deeeelish recipe. Chow Mien Casserole!

Summer?? Where have you gone?!

So I must apologize to all of my 1 readers :) I have seriously slacked this summer. I cannot believe that school is starting in a month! :( Some serious booness is going on over here. Anyway, along with being a major bad blogger this summer I have also totally slacked in the cooking department. I wouldn't say that I LOVE to cook, but I do like it. I would like it way better if I did not have to do the clean up! (I digress)
