Strawberry Scones

If tea and scones are your thing, here is an alternative to the usual plain scones.  Strawberries were on special this week and I ended up more strawberries than I knew what to do with.  

Thanks to a lovely recipe from – these scones were extremely easy to make:

They pretty much taste like plain scones with little bits of strawberry in between – which is great if, like me, you don’t have much of a sweet tooth! 



Apple pies and pistachios 

It’s winter time and not many fruits are in season at the moment.  I managed to buy 2kg of apples for $2 over the weekend.  

Today, I came home to another wonderful surprise from the Mister.  Little actions of thoughtfulness really do add up – particularly when you live together and the excitement of date nights do not happen as often as your dating days.

With the use of some leftover puff pastry,  apples, cinnamon and sultanas – a delicious apple ‘pie’ was made.  The crust was coated in honey, butter, and pistachios.
