...Chocolate Chip - Toffee Scones I make. It is a recipe I found on epicurious
quite a while ago. These scones are moist unlike most scones out there.
I have often considered switching out the chocolate and toffee chips for other
options but they are so, so good as is. People in my life that aren't even that
fond of sweets love these scones.
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar plus extra
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag of Heath Toffee Bits (without chocolate)
2 cups chilled whipping cream
Here's the size I generally make them. I manage to get 16 per baking sheet.
...I can already tell I am going to love it because it weighs hardly
anything, it has a seven hour battery and it is very portable. What a difference
compared to the 17" which is clunky and heavy when carting it around in a laptop
case. The mini is pretty much like holding a hard cover
book...all good! Now all I have to do is find a handbag that it fits

I have not really even been able to use it as I have one of the wireless USB things for my internet access and there is no optical drive in the Dell Mini so I could not load the software for it to run. After waiting on the phone for tech support for how long they ask me if I have wireless...yes...with the USB thing which does not work. As a result I was doing one of my not so fun things to do yesterday...hanging out at the cell phone store for tech support. I was there for quite a while and they did load the software which I was happy about and it still did not work. Haven't we have all been there? After another call to tech support it finally works and I am thrilled.
On a completely different subject, here's one of my first lilly's to bloom in the garden last week. I was cutting some more flowers this morning and the deer have managed to eat so many of the flowers. It's so discouraging. They are eating things they never touched before. It's such a trial and error to figure out what they will stay away from regardless of what the experts say. Where I live, if it's not the deer, it's the bunnies. Oh well...I have a house full of lilly's...not so bad!

hearing back from many that have girltrunks to find out they are
wearing the swim shorts in their day-to-day lives when
they have no intention of going into the water. I cannot tell you how fantastic
I think that is. And then there are the tops...women are wearing the halter and
tanks with skirts, pants and shorts...as part of their outfits...again to wear
in their day-to-day lives. That is just too, too cool to me. It just goes to
show the true versatility of girltrunks.
Oh how I
LOVE lilacs - one of my absolute favorite flowers.
They are a simple pleasure that only lasts but a day or two in a vase but how glorious it is to fill the house with them. I am notorious for gathering all of my vases (and I have quite a few) and putting the lilac-filled vases in every room of the house very often multiple vases in one room. They are a marker for me that spring is indeed here and summer is on its way. And then there is the fragrance...nothing less than divine. I just love walking into my home with the lilac aroma permeating about.
Here's to the simple joys of spring.

I just returned from another wonderful visit to Chicago…absolutely love that city. I went to see Art Chicago, hang out with friends and take in the city. It was “Tulip Days on the Magnificent Mile” and may I just say the tulips could not have been more stunning and beautiful.
