food and thoughts

December 20, 2011

As I peer out my little perch, I see a brown little world out my window.  It's not beautiful.  It's nor graceful or eye pleasing, but it's home.  Leaves have found rest for themselves in the grave to which they all eventually fly, the sun plays behind the clouds leaving not a mark of her happy face to grace us, and the sky is sullen and white.

Tea is a must and a staple now.  Did you know you can (and rather ought if you want my opinion) put cream in tea?  It makes really good...  Try it.  you might like it.
Morgan and I have been making breakfast every morning for all.  It's definitely good for the both of us and we've already learned quite a few things...  It's hard finding trustworthy recipes but we've been lucky so far :-)


1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 c. all-purpose Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. sea salt
¼ c. brown sugar, packed
¼ c. sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon, divided
¼ c. butter, cold
⅓ c. milk


½ c. powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 T. milk

Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.  Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugars, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a large bowl and stir well with a whisk. Add in the butter and continue to mix until the mixture begins to crumble. Pour the milk in. Stir the dough just until combined (it will be sticky!) Gently knead the mixture and transfer to the prepared baking sheet and form a large circle, about 8-9 inches in diameter and about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over the dough. Cut into 8 wedges and bake for 15-18 minutes and remove from the oven when done.


In a bowl, mix powdered sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla and milk until combined. Drizzle on top of scones for deliciousness.
