Cranberry Orange Scones with Orange Glaze

There was a coffee shop in Toledo that had these lemon blueberry scones that I often day dream about when I am reaching for my afternoon coffee and craving a bit of sugar = the ultimate cure for the mid-day slump that would be better cured with a cat nap…but since curling up in a fetal position underContinue reading “Cranberry Orange Scones with Orange Glaze”

Brown Butter Peach Raspberry Bars

It is September  (oy!) and I have already pumped out a few pumpkin desserts.  It doesn’t seem right.  A pumpkin freakazoid, I am not.  I am not one of those chicks just waiting for Starbucks to roll out their limited edition Pumpkin Spice latte (it is like Disney releasing Beauty and the Beast or TheContinue reading “Brown Butter Peach Raspberry Bars”

Yogurt Cake w/ Peach Blueberry Compote

Yo!  I have a cake for you today. And if you bake this cake…you will have cake tomorrow.
