All the Sprinkles!

My mom’s birthday was in October. I told her that I was going to bake her a cake, but between work, everyone’s schedules, and this little thing I did that took over my life, it kept getting pushed back. Eventually, we got to Hanukkah and I still hadn’t made my mom’s birthday cake, so we…

Scones, Tea Ways

Who doesn’t love scones? They’re easy as anything to make, delicious and easy to customize, and the perfect food for nibbling on your way to work.
