Lately in my kitchen - Blueberry Scones

It all started when I was pregnant the fourth time and all I wanted to eat were scones.

An insatiable desire to eat scones.

I was really overdue, so after my last few appointments, I stopped by the local bakery to pick up a scone to sweeten up my day.

Thought it would end once the baby was born.

Yet, even though I had the baby at 41 weeks and 5 days...

...scones were still at the top of my list.

...And still are!

One afternoon while the baby was napping, the older kids and I got in the kitchen and decided to try a blueberry scone recipe by Sally's Baking Addiction.

The list of ingredients is fairly simple, you probably have most things: flour,  frozen butter, cream, sugar,  baking powder, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, and blueberries (strawberries, raspberries).

Something interesting about the recipe and other ones I have looked at is that scones only use baking powder, no baking soda.  Why?  Scones are meant to be puffy pastries/cakes. We don't want them to spread, just to puff up.

Her recipe is very thorough, great for a newbie like me.  In making scones we learned how to make homemade buttermilk (milk + cream). We also learned to put the butter in the freezer and then grate it right before adding it in.

Once the batter is ready, give them the desired shape. I like the triangles.  You can put the dough in a pie pan and then cut them out OR you can also use a shaped pan which will work great for scones or even cornbread. I'm considering getting one of these scones pan in the future to save me time.

All ready to bake!

Bake them at 400 degrees for about 22 minutes. 

The kitchen smells so good when I bake these yummy, super yummy, scones. You will love them too!

Have you made scones before? What kind?

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
