I am making a sincere effort to blog more about what I bake. I bake A LOT more than what I post here. I bake for my office at least once a week, but usually twice. Not all of those treats make it here, however. That would require me to take pictures AND write witty stories about everything I make.
I recently got a new camera, well not so recently. But, I did recently up load the software to get the pictures from my camera to my computer. This camera takes amazing pictures. Not that they are all artistic and I do not have the time for photo styling, but I get much more awesome quality pictures than with my previous camera (which the view finder showed static due to it being dropped and I still used it for over a year).
So, I will be posting more pictures here of what I bake. I cannot promise the writing will be phenomenal; heck, the writing is not phenomenal now. So, here is my first fly-by post.
Another cross-continental friend, Sef, is having a birthday soon. I wanted to send her some treats, just a few sweet and not so sweet options. One of Sef’s favorite things I have ever made weas cheddar and dill scones—go figure, something savory. I do not do savory often and out of all the sweet things I make, she had to love this one savory thing.
So, for her birthday I decided to whip these up. I adapted the Barefoot Contessa’s Cheddar Dill Scone recipe, available on Food Network.com.
I couldn’t only do something savory, so I made something sweet as well. I wanted to do something different. I came up with the idea of Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies. After doing some internet searching, I found the name Cinnadoodle Cookies and adapted a recipe from Two Peas & Their Pods.
Lastly, a gift is not a gift without chocolate. So, I made Mint Brownie Chip Cookies. I folded in fully baked frozen brownie pieces and mint morsels into chocolate chip cookie batter. I am really feeling brownies in cookies right now.
I hope Sef likes her treats and has a wonderful birthday. (Please access the above site/blog to find the recipes. Because this is a fly by post, I did not have time write up the recipes.)
