Whatchamacallit Blondies

It’s been quiet on the blog lately because I’ve actually been able to go back to work on movie sets despite covid wreaking havoc on all of our lives. I’ve worked on a commercial, finished a movie that the virus shut down with only a week to go and then just finished another movie. It … Continue reading

Salted Butterscotch Blondies

We have new neighbors next door and I’ve been meaning to make them some treats to welcome them to the neighborhood and so yesterday I found this yummy looking recipe and threw them together. They were awesome! It’s a weird quarantine/social distancing time and I wasn’t sure if people would be comfortable accepting baked goods … Continue reading

Triple Chocolate Scones

Here is the next and third entry in the Quarantine Scone Off.  These were really good, really chocolatey but not very sconey so I would put them in third place. However, I would make them again because of the chocolate factor! 2 cups flour 1/2 cup cocoa 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking … Continue reading
