I make scones A LOT. They are easy to make and satisfy a craving for fresh baked breads especially on a lazy Sunday morning. This is a really easy scone recipe that I make a couple of times a month for brunch, breakfast or anytime we feel like having scones.

Clementines, Clementines everywhere, what’s a girl to do? Well here’s what Laura did, she made Clementine Upside Down Cakes. What a great idea! I always buy them when they’re in season, but I never thought to bake with them, and why not?

After 2 weeks of excessive eating over the holidays, we need to take a break so I've been making lots of salads and grilled meats to counteract all of the rich foods we've been eating.

I've been trying to do a meatless Monday for a while. Last week I did a salad plate with some roasted beets, parsnips and carrots. This week I've made a dish of cold soba noodles with eggplant and mango. It's really a summer dish, but it looked so good I gave it a try. It's just what was required to rebalance our system after the holidays.

My experience with Mackrel has either been smoked or in a tin, and I have never liked either preparation. Mackerel is a very strong flavoured fish, and in my opinion you either love it or strongly dislike it. My husband loves it and guess which camp I fall into.

My grandmother made these cookies ever Xmas. It's the one cookie that I also make every year because it reminds me of her, and it doesn't feel like Xmas unless I have these cookies.
