Tula, baking and watercolour pencils

Shame on me!!!

Wasn't writing for so long here. Dealing with 4 yo boy, puppy, house works, crafting etc is not easy - I can tell it for sure :).
Tula is 12.5 weeks old now and had her 2 jabs done. On pic below our little cutie in her new coat ready for her first walk :)

Isn't she look cute in it?

I have some watercolour pencils from my friend plus received bigger box of them from my man for Christmas... I thought why not learn something new... 
Just one think - I am not good with drawing things ( maybe trees :) ). 

Below pic of my first try with these pencils on Digi stamp from Poolkadoodles.

Last Sunday I decided to try something new - scones :) Savory scones... Actually
Bacon and cheese scones!

Before landing in oven

Cooling down!

To make these scrumptious beauties you need (in my version):

First preheat your oven to 200 C.

Fry 200 g bacon lardons, put them aside to cool down a bit, in bowl mix together 275 g self-raising flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt, then add 100 g butter and rub it until form breadcrumbs. in other bowl mix together 150 ml milk, 50 ml oil and 1 egg. Then add milk mixture to the dry ingredients, add 2-3 nicely chopped spring onions (can be more if you wish) and fried lardons and mix it together. 

Divide dough between 12 muffin cases and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden/brown and then...
depends from you :) wait for little cool down or just eat them hot ;)

To be honest with you I was very surprised to see my 4yo fussy eater munching on it and asking for 'cupcakes' next day!



  1. Interesting flavor for scones I will have to try them, who doesn't like bacon!
