banner

It’s no mystery summer season is my favorite time of 12 months. i really like the slower pace of existence. The lazy mornings and lengthy nights. pals and family go to in flocks. The energetic buzz of bees, the track of birds and the sight of blossoms blooming. 


but it’s status on the shore… salty pores and skin and hair blowing in the wind… toes in the sand and eyes fixed on the ocean… that brings me the maximum joy. It’s my satisfied place, and that i always walk away with a clean spring in my step.


After spending three steeply-priced days on the seaside I arrived domestic with a complete heart… and an empty fridge. I wanted to bake some thing that embodied the feeling of summer season, however also had zero preference to leap returned inside the car and power to the store. So I did what I do quality…
I scrounged thru the fruit bowl, dug deep in the refrigerator, and searched my soul for notion. And much like that, with a half carton of ricotta, a handful of sorry looking lemons… and little success,  these stunning bakery-exceptional scones have been born. every bite like a ray of sunshine. assignment finished!
