Foodie Friday: Busy kitchen

It was a busy week in the kitchen… and surprisingly I’m not too burnt out from it. How that’s possible I do not know… work on the other hand has me beat, hopefully there will be some fluke tomorrow morning and I wake up cheerful as I go to open the kennel.

Anyway, on to the goodies, even if it’s late yet again

Chocolate cookies with white, dark, and semi sweet chips.. also did a PB chip variety, and one with heath pieces..

I liked the alternating setup for this one.

And then we visited the Blueberry Lemon drop scones

These are very easy, kinda like a cross between a scone and drop biscuit, but more moist than a biscuit, lemon yogurt is the key

AND the lemon glaze… I need to make more of this next time as it really lends a nice flavor to the scones.  Can you tell I loved this lemon, normally I don’t include ingredients in the shots, but I will try to from now on when I feel it works.

Also revisited my ultimate chocolate chip cookies…. after I first made this recipe, I knew there would never be another I would want to make.  Totally worth waiting 24 hours while the dough chills in the fridge… though we also found out they are not bad the night of either (mister didn’t want to wait). Perfect combo of sweet, soft, and salty.

But it was not all sweet treats in the kitchen this week.

Also tried a new bread recipe… Honey Oat. And I will SO be making this again as even though I undercooked it the flavor was wonderful and the crumb will be great if I cook it right next time.

And last but not least a true favorite around here (as in the Mister)  Biscuits and Chipped Venison Gravy… all from scratch, deer was even shot by my hunter.  I liked those sour cream biscuits so much that I bought a big container of sour cream from Costco so I could make a couple batches and freeze them.  Still need to do so but at least I won’t run out anytime soon.

And that’s all folks… sorry it’s so late and short, I must go get some sleep now, been a long week.

Again if you want any recipes I would be happy to share.  Have  a great weekend!

    Gorgeous shots, all of them! As for the lemon, it’s the star of the show.

    I’m liking your latest watermark, too. Very nice.

      You are too kind, I agree the lemon is the favorite, though the cookies up top are giving it a run for the money.

      I’m between watermarks, just depends on what the image is I think. So I probably will continue to jump back and forth, but I’m glad you approve 😉


  2. YUM! The biscuits and gravy looks absolutely delicious. Every week your beautiful photos inspire me to bake…but then I never do. 😉

    I love the addition of the lemon in your photo!

      He says they’re good… I don’t eat most of what I cook… just most of what I bake.. And thus baking may be put on hold for a while as it’s not having a positive effect on my image 😉

      Thanks for stopping by, any ideas for a new friday post?

  3. I’ll pass on the scones and biscuits, but the cookies and bread look delicious! I can almost taste those chocolate cookies.

    All I can say is YUMMY!!!

    You got me in the mood for baking now. Wonderful photos. Those chocolate chip cookies look great. Can you share the recipe?

    Although I must say… if the dough has to chill in the fridge for 24 hours, by the end of that 24 hours there may not be any cookie dough left for the cookies. I might need to tell Craig to put a lock on the fridge.

    It all looks yummy! I am always looking for good venison recipes. I would love to try the Chipped Venison Gravy if you could share that recipe. 🙂

    • Anna says:

      I can share the gravy recipe which will work with any chipped beef/venison. Can’t help you with the venison factor, we were able to get a Doe ham turned into chipped venison, so you would need your butcher to provide that. But I would be happy to share the gravy recipe.

  7. Under your artful eye, plates of food achieve stardom! What beautiful shots and colorful settings. I would particularly like the recipe for the Blueberry Lemon drop scones. I have a coworker who brings scones into work, and I could return the favor.

    In the spirit of returning the favor, here is my humorous Mon.-Fri. photoblog of my own (family-friendly) captioned photos:

      Thanks J. I will post the recipe for the scones soon, like I said they are quite easy and a nice change up from heavier versions. Thanks for stopping by
