favor-"ette": scones, revisited (and news!)

January 14th, 2014

I’ve been thinking about scones lately. How much I love them. And about how long it’s been since I posted about them – like, so long ago that my pictures looked like these (and thanks, as always, for sticking with me anyway…). So I thought it was time for another post. Except this time I […]

This post is about parents, grandparents and Coke slushies. It’s also about gratitude, traditions and date-nut bread. I’m sitting in my kitchen, getting ready to pack and prepare as we leave for what will be our 8th trip to Disney World. And when I say “we” I mean Mike, Chelsea, Conor and me. Noah stays […]
