Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake has to be one of my favorite summertime desserts.  The fresh, sweet strawberries atop a tender shortcake with a large dollop of whipped cream seems to scream “Summer is here!”  Every year, I can’t wait for strawberries to be in season so that I can make this easy, fresh dessert to share with family and friends.

Brown Sugar Biscuit Twists

Brown Sugar Biscuit Twists are sure to be a hit for breakfast in your home.  They have a light texture and a sweet flavor that anyone would love.  The original recipe calls for all-purpose flour, but I have found them to be just as tasty with the substitution of some whole wheat flour.

PW’s Vanilla Scones

The other day I wanted to try something a little different than my usual scones.  I can’t say that I’ve ever had any real vanilla beans on hand (I know, I’m missing out!), so I adapted a recipe from The Pioneer Woman, a.k.a. PW.  These Vanilla Scones are delicious, whether you have real vanilla beans or not!

Isn’t just great how I call her by a nickname like I know her?  Well, I don’t, but if you read her website for any amount of time, you’ll feel as if you do.  Have you ever visited her website?  She’s an absolute riot, and knows how to whip up a good recipe or two.  Or maybe thousands.  I mean, she does have her own cookbook, after all!

Maple Whole Wheat Scones

Scones!  These Maple Whole Wheat Scones are tender and slightly sweet… perfect for breakfast or brunch!  I am a maple syrup lover, but the maple flavor of these scones is subtle.  If you leave off the glaze, you might not even notice the maple flavor at all.  To me, the flavor of the scone itself is reminiscent of graham crackers.  Epicurious calls them “Maple Tea Scones”, and I do think they would go quite nicely with a hot cup of tea.  A Saturday morning treat!
