*If you are new here, WELCOME! For this post, I provide you with a delicious recipe for Apple Cinnamon Scones with Vanilla Icing!
If you’ve never had a scone, I am glad you are here! Scones are one of my favorite foods, but I only started eating them within the last five years.
If you love the flaky goodness of a biscuit with a little bit of crunch on the outside, but you wish for something sweeter like a blueberry muffin, then scones are exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Blueberry scones are my absolute favorite and maybe I’ll make a version to share here someday, but today I’m sharing an equally lovely apple cinnamon scone.
This recipe packed with apples and cinnamon will produce a flaky, but soft scone that will have you reaching for just…one…more.
While most apple cinnamon scone recipes out there just use a bit of cinnamon in the batter, I decided to add cinnamon chips for a twist.
Cinnamon chips are found in the baking aisle next to the chocolate chips and are sweetened morsels packed with cinnamon.
If you can’t find them anywhere, you can try ordering them online (HERE) or leave them out of the recipe. Just increase the diced apples by a 1/4 cup.
If you’re stopping by here while searching for recipes, you may not know that the recipes here are all inspired by books! This particular recipe was created after reading Picnic in Someday Valley.
If you love small town romances (think Hallmark) with a dose of mystery mixed in, then you’ll love this book. Check out more about this book HERE!
This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Scones combines apples, cinnamon chips, flaky dough, and rich vanilla icing for a delectable treat!
Set in a small town with a cast of lovable, but quirky characters, Picnic in Someday Valley offers exactly what you love about Hallmark. With an extra dose of the romance (think PG-13 verses PG), but nothing too erotic, Thomas delivers a novel with several story lines that work together.
If you haven’t checked out the first book in the series, you can see my post on that bookHERE. In fact, I recommend you read it first because so many of the characters in the first book return for the second.
And, who doesn’t love that?
I usually don’t do this, but I did want to provide a trigger warning for some readers. The main conflict in this novel arises from a serial rapist on the loose. That said, Thomas only writes books with happily ever after’s and this is no different!

*If you are new here, WELCOME! For this post, I provide you with a delicious recipe for Sage and Pineapple Margaritas!
With summertime just around the corner, I’m looking forward to whipping up some tasty and fun drinks to cool off after a long day. There’s something about sitting on a patio and sipping a drink during those beautiful evening hours when it’s still warm, but no longer scalding hot. It just feels like summer!
If you’re like me, then you’ll enjoy this delicious twist on a traditional margarita.
Sage and pineapple come together to add a sophisticated depth in this drink. Paired with the typical lime and tequila in most margaritas, the sage and pineapple compliment and then elevate the cocktail. It’s really delectable!
And, if you don’t have a beach vacation planned this summer, this sage and pineapple margarita will make you feel like you’re there even when you can’t be.
If you’re stopping by here while searching for recipes, you may not know that the recipes here are all inspired by books! This particular recipe was created after reading The Rosie Project. If you love reading, check out more about this great book HERE!
Part romance, part comedy, and part quirky–The Rosie Project takes a unique narrator (think university professor with Asperger’s) and tosses him into the deep end as he tries to find a wife through his own carefully calculated survey. That just spells disaster!
I loved the book, so if you haven’t checked it out, learn more about it HERE!
And, as much as I loved the book, I think I loved this sage and pineapple margarita even more! Be sure to whip up a few and treat yo’ self this summer!
