Scones my vice

Strawberry scones

I love scones and I enjoy making them.  My favorite place that makes scones is Panera
I try making scones at home in the hopes to being anywhere close to Panera's scones.

I found the recipe I used here. I didn't have light cream so I used whole milk. I am also horrible about measuring the fruit I put into my scones because I like lots. I really enjoyed this recipe it is simple and delicious. I might try to figure out how to integrate Nutella into the recipe...for now i just spread it on top.

When I am sad, lonely, angry, or just plain feeling invisible I like to bake.
that might explain the weight issue...
but baking makes me feel happy because the end result is usually good...and the ingredients do what i ask and don't question me...(I guess I have control issues)
And when I bake I like to take pictures to remember the things I baked.
I guess what I'm trying to say is baking is my vice.

Happy Birthday....

This is my daddy...Today is his birthday...he would be 57 years old
He was so wonderful he was one of my top four guys...holding the spot of number one for a good 15 years...
My daddy was able to love me and be so proud of me no matter what I did
Today is a happy day but my heart aches as this would have been his 57th birthday
but we are celebrating this birthday just like the last two without him...it doesn't get easier...it just doesn't
Daddy...there are some things I want to tell you....
I still suck at not wearing my heart on my sleeve...I'm still hurt you left me after I pleaded with you not to...I miss you so much that it still really hurts...I am trying hard to be a good mommy to your granddaughters, all three, I had one more you would love her
Thank you for watching over me. I love you and I miss you. Happy birthday. Bless my brothers today as we think of you and try to celebrate the day you were born...the best gift.
I love you daddy
