Weekend Moments... baking & daydreaming


Life has been a little overwhelming lately, and this poor neglected blog of mine has been feeling rather lonely these days. But this weekend was such a relief. We had the entire weekend off to sleep in and catch our breath.
And I baked... a lot!
Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of most of the stuff, which is very unlike me, but goes to show you how preoccupied I've been lately.

I baked my grandmother's famous scones (honestly one of my all time favourite recipes to make), I baked bread (and we ate lots of sandwiches!), and I baked this lady's Tarte Tatin (which is amazing, btw).



Otherwise, the husband and I are busy planning our next big adventure. We are taking a luxurious 1 month holiday from the north (starting next week!) and heading to Europe. First to the UK, then Holland, and then France!

So while the north has been a little miserable lately (still in the sub-zero temperatures but no more snow to play with), I have brighter days up ahead.


I hope you had a lovely weekend.
