These Apricot Ginger Scones Were My Favorite Scones in Los Angeles

So let’s recreate them! I’ve been incredibly nostalgic for a very specific baked good from my past. Now… I haven’t thought about the Apricot Ginger Scone from Clementine in Los Angeles in probably a decade, but some sort of Saturn Return must be in the air. I’m currently in transition between this sweet little apartment in Houston and onto the new big Bakehouse in Bellville.  There’s something about the conjunction of my choices and my stuff that’s always a reckoning.  ..read more

Buckle up, friends because we’ve got some NEWS.  Your girl (that’s me!) is a Texas homeowner! And not just any Texas home… because what fun would that be?  The next Bakehouse is a grand old gal – a Victorian home, in Bellville, Texas built in 1888 by August Haak. I knew I wanted to get out of town, find enough grass to mow that I’d need a riding lawn mower, get back into a big bright and sunny kitchen where I could welcome you for classes, AND even have guest house where you could stay for a weekend getaway.  ..read more

Friends, hello! How are you? I’ve missed you. It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve had a proper catch up. Last Easter weekend, Will and I were driving back to Houston from a camping trip (well, he was driving and I was eating ranch dip and potato chips in the passanger seat) and the highway was speckled with cars stopped along the side of the road. I can’t tell if it was planned or spontaneous, but families had stopped at various point on the road to pose in the wildflower patches in their Easter Sunday best.  ..read more

Good morning and Good Easter Sunday, friends. I’m taking a bit of a spring break this weekend, out sleeping under the stars in middle Texas. I’ve made this sturdy carrot salad, a loaf of bread, and chicken soup (that truly no one asked for because who eats chicken soup while they’re camping!?) for the weekend.  I’m full of ideas. Not all of them are great ..read more

Someone recently asked me what my desert island cookbook would be. You know… the one cookbook so dear to you, you’d take it as your sole cookbook to be stranded on a dessert island. Logically I should opt for a book with advice on building fires, catching fish and climbing coconut trees but, I’m envisioning a more Gilligan’s Island desert island situation (and I’m Thurston Howell III with trunks of kitchen supplies). My answer: The Gourmet Cookbook ..read more

As you know, I’ve entered my kolache era.  Here’s a twist on a classic kolache recipe using an enriched dough with a lemon curd and poppy seed twist. They’re a perfect springtime Texas pastry. I have this daydream that one day in the not so distant future I’ll be slingin’ kolaches and coffee in my little backyard bakery.  I can’t tell if it’s a daydream or a premonition, but I’m generally in the business of making my own dreams come true so ..read more

Hello friends! How are you? If you’ve read my other Let It Be posts, you know that I am a BIG FAN of Spring and Summer, and dang it, we made it! I’m thrilled. The sun has been shining here in California, and I walked my dogs in a tank top the other day. The Birkenstocks are OUT. I feel like my soul is re-growing. Recently, I came across a writer who shared that she makes seasonal resolutions ..read more

I Made Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits and You Really Should, Too!

Breaking biscuit news, friends! A few weeks ago I was in Charleston, SC for the Charleston Wine and Food festival and I’ll tell you what – Charleston might have the best food in the country.  Every meal was a banger. But the biscuits? Y’all, I was not ready for the biscuits.  If you’re in or near Charleston, you’re very well familiar with the pillow biscuits that are Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits.  ..read more

Happy St. Patty’s Day friends! Spring has sprung and so have I with a terrible cold (that might actually be the flu?).  How passée, honestly. The only bright side about getting sick is the idea that I’ve gotten it out of the way for the rest of the season. I know that theory doesn’t hold water, but a girl can be delusional in her recovery. My sister Launa and her husband Chad are visiting me in Houston this weekend.  ..read more

Hello, friends! What’s your hidden talent? Earlier this week I was chauffeuring my son and his friend around town when the other kid was talking about how his mom can make anything. Her own clothes! Furniture! Songs! And it’s true. His mom is very creative; I admire her greatly, and I agree that she could in fact do anything.  Then there was a pause and I heard my darling child say, “Well … My mom can eat dinner faster than anyone in the entire world.” And, actually, he’s right ..read more
