Blood Orange Scones


Oh winter citrus, how do I love thee? There are too many ways to count. I just can’t get enough of you. Combining you with a scone is almost too good to be true. Almost. These Blood Orange Scones are moist. I mean, shut-the-front-door moist. She’s beautiful. Just look at her. And that citrus flavor isn’t just hiding behind a veil with her head down,…

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze


I love-loathe Sundays. I don’t like to make plans on Sunday and I secretly judge people that plan an event that requires me to leave the house on a Sunday. We can still be friend but if we’re to be really good friends, this has to cease. The only outing I’ll consider on a Sunday is one that involves equal parts…

Each month will be themed (the theme for July is yeast-based treats) and will deal with both sweet and savory baked recipes. This recipe was for my first episode, which I will link to as soon as it is up on…

Overnight Raspberry Buns With Crème Fraîche


I’m thinking these raspberry buns should be on your Mother’s Day table… These are make-ahead raspberry buns that are given a quick rise the morning we’re brunching. We throw the dough and jam together the night before (or up to several days before) and then just let everything rest and flavor mingle. Our biggest concern will be champagne or screwdriver. I was…

Chocolate Almond Scones


You knew my love of scones was going to morph into some little chocolate number. I’ve actually been hanging onto this chocolate almond scones recipe for probably a year. I know. Sorry. They’re so good. But I needed a bit of a scone sabbatical. Once I stopped baking them for the bakery we needed a break. But enough time has passed and…

Chocolate Malted Layer Cake With Toasted Meringue


So I’ve learned something very important this week. Grab a drink, move in close and listen carefully: I have zero self control with chocolate cake. Every year, growing up, my mom would make me a chocolate cake for my birthday. You know the cake…those amazing doctored-up box cakes that are the confectionary equivalent to crack. One year in particular, my best…

Consider this your weekend guide if you’d like to eat your way through Calistoga … it’s a magical land. Calistoga, California Travel Guide We stayed at the Calistoga Guest Ranch and this was the…

Buttermilk Gingerbread Cake With Spiced Citrus Buttercream


So, my KitchenAid mixer broke on Saturday. Devastated. Just wanted to get that out of the way because it’s pretty much all I can think about. And my computer start-up disc is full and Photoshop keeps telling me my ‘scratch disc’ is full. Which I’m now pretty sure are the same thing. I think. I’ve spent the entire day transferring things…

Chocolate Peppermint Crinkles


Every year I do some type of Christmas cookie that combines peppermint and chocolate. 2016’s creation is Chocolate Peppermint Crinkles, this little number pictured above. Look at her… I’m being totally modest when I tell you she’s amazing. But it’s not just one cookie recipe I get to share with you today… There are seventeen others. Wait, what?!? I know…who knew life…

Chai Pumpkin Tart With Gingersnap Crust


Thanksgiving is my holiday. I give the kids Halloween and Christmas…candy, costumes and presents. But Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I love cooking everything, I love how everything tastes…I love how the whole purpose is to get together, break some bread, clink some glasses and be grateful. It’s the best kind of day. I want to share some quick tips…

Cranberry Spice Breakfast Buns

So when I was creating these breakfast buns my number one priority was for them to taste delicious. Obviously. But it was also extremely important that they be quick + easy. Because we’re going…

Cranberry Bark Cookies


I like to keep things light and fluffy around here, but I’m not feeling especially so this week. BUT, instead of waxing on about everything you’ve already heard or read, I’ll refrain and just say, let’s spread a little love. A little peace. A little laughter. These cranberry bark cookies will put a smile on anyone’s face. Pour yourself some…

Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples


We’re not making baked apples nearly as often as we should. I know this. For a fact. It’s just not a go-to dessert and I’d like to change that. First, because it is next-level deliciousness. Second, because it’s one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. I’m proposing these cranberry pecan baked apples as a sweet treat to get us through until…

Brown Butter Muscovado Banana Bread


I’m having one of those so-much-to-say-I-have-nothing-to-say moments. Maybe it’s because it’s getting cooler? The sky a little darker? Or perhaps because I have a moment to breathe. I was going to talk about how busy I’ve been. We’ve been. How I haven’t taken two seconds to  pause. None of us have. How grateful I am for the work I’ve been getting.…

Halloween Candy Cookies


First, let me just say these candy cookies are life changing. Who else always has a ton of leftover Halloween candy? If I don’t buy too much candy to hand out, then my kids bring home ridiculous amounts of candy that haunts us for weeks and sometimes months. Dentists say it’s better to OD on candy over a few days rather than every…
