Strawberry Lemonade Scones

Sweet and sour, flaky, buttery scones with a lot of lemon zest, lemon juice and freeze dried strawberries drizzled with a strawberry glaze.


I have no clue why this combination works but it does. It maybe that strawberries cut down on the tartness.
These scones are perfect for this time of the year because it is so hot. Today alone was in the mid 90's and it felt like 100.
The scones will refresh and cool you done on a hot day because it takes just like the liquid form of strawberry lemonade.

Plus this summer I have been watching my niece and nephews and they love anything that I've made with strawberries or lemon or both.

That is why these should be a kids favorite and they have a freeze dried strawberry, like an astronauts would eat.

Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies

Your favorite cake during your special time of the year, your birthday,in cookie form. Giant, chewy rainbow sprinkle cookies with yellow cake mix to give you the authentic flavor.
My nephew's 12th birthday is coming up and he asked me to make his birthday cake or treat. What's better than birthday cake flavor cookies.
Anything can be called birthday cake but what has become popular is a vanilla or yellow cake with rainbow colored sprinkles and buttercream.
Some of the birthday cake stuff can be really tasty. They're a lot that just tasty like pure sugar and you don't even get any flavors.
I'm making these cookies with a little yellow cake mix,as I stated above, to give it more of the traditional birthday cake taste.
If you don't have a spare box in your pantry you don't have to add it but it give you the full flavor of the birthday cake.

Jumbo S'mores Muffins

A campfire treat made into jumbo muffin. These are filled with graham cracker chucks, mini marshmallows, chocolate.
It is the summertime where I live. The highs have been in the 80's almost everyday and we even had a few 90's.
When it comes to the summer I think of going to the beach or when I was younger, camping. Yes, even in the Louisiana summers we would go camping.

What do you make around the campfire, s'mores. The melted chocolate and almost burnt marshmallows, yum.
These muffins are like your traditional s'mores with the graham crackers, marshmallows, and chunks of chocolate.
But without the campfire, wilderness and mosquitoes.  They are also miniature so you could bring them to a cookout.

Blueberry Pineapple Cobbler

Inspired by a cocktail in dessert form. This dessert is full of pineapple, blueberries topped with lemon zest and a crispy cobbler topping.
This cross between a crisp and cobbler. It is oats and brown sugar like a crisp but not as cover like a cobbler because it is not completely covered.
You maybe a little curious what's the difference between a cobbler and a pie. A pie has a crust on the bottom and top with fruit in between.
A cobbler only has the 'crust' on the top and usually scattered on top with fruit on the bottom.
The cobbler is like a margarita or a daiquiri that we have around where I live. They come in all different flavors with alcohol.
Pineapple, blueberries and lemon has to be one of my favorite combinations. Lemon adds a little tartness to the sweet pineapple and blueberries.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the ultimate chocolate chip cookies with three different kinds of chocolate, browned butter and a touch of cinnamon.
You heard right, three different types of chocolate. I use milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and dark chocolate.
The different types chocolates give you not so sweet chocolate chip cookies if you just used one type. Get a little bitterness from the semi-sweet and depth from the dark.
I've been making this recipe for over 10 years and its taken me that long to perfect this recipe.
The only thing that I have changed with my recipe is the butter. It used to be just softened butter but since I discovered browned butter I've been making them that way.
These cookies will have a gooeyness on the inside and slight crispiness on the outside from all the yummy chocolate.
Hope you celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day with this recipe.
