We love to learn in the kitchen thought we would share some of our favorite recipes. We hope you try them. Enjoy!





2 cups all-purpose flour
7 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold butter
½ cup canned pumpkin
3 Tablespoons half-and-half
1 large egg

spiced glaze
1 cup plus 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 pinch ground cloves

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger in a large bowl. Use a fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter are obvious.

 In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half-and-half and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and form the dough into a ball. Pat into a rectangle cut into three separate and equal parts. Make an x and cut each third into four pieces so you end up with 12 triangles.
Place on  baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until light brown. Cool on wire rack.

To make the spiced glaze, combine all of the ingredients. Drizzle over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving.

Snake shaped lunch

We had lots of fun making this snake lunch. It turned out great and I think there are tons of possibilities for different shapes. We simply used ham and cheese and crescent rolls.
