Weekend Creations

February 15, 2010

Instead of cupcakes or cookies I made Valentine's Day scones...mainly because my husband loves them so much. I'm sad to say that these didn't turn out as well because I accidentally melted the butter when I meant to soften it...oh well.

Here is the recipe.

Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Caramel Scones!

2 cups flour
1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons of butter
¼ cup skim milk
¼ cup half and half
Half a bag of chocolate chips
Half and half for glazing
Caramel sprinkles for topping

Preheat oven to 425 and grease or flour your baking sheet

Combine dry ingredients

Add butter while cold until looks like rough crumbs

Add chocolate chips

Gradually add milk and half and half

Roll dough out ¼ inch thick and use a cup to cut out in circles

Glaze with half and half and sprinkle on the caramel sprinkles

Bake for 12-14 minute

And, not related to Valentine's Day I made a sweet little blue baby hat for my newest nephew due next month. I can't wait to meet little Joshua! (Plus, I had the yarn left over from when I made this same hat for my now 2 year old nephew.) I think I'm done with the baby gift buying/making for now...I hope!

Traveling by train is, by far, the easiest way to get around Italy!! Not speaking Italian is not an issue either; Nick and I learned a little, but pretty much everyone speaks English. We would try our Italian and then everyone would just start talking to us in English, the people are very helpful and friendly! Trains are way easy, you get to the station and you just basically look up at the boards for your train number or destination. I would get to the station about 30 mins before, and be sure to look around at the boards that are constantly changing, and sometimes they have papers posted around too with information. The papers or board will give you a number and there are numbers on each "station" where the trains come in. You just wait there, the train pulls up, and you find your seat. Most of the time they don't even ask to see your ticket. If anything, I would buy train tickets ahead of time (it made our trip much easier) but it really is the only way to go! Also, there are several taxis outside the train station that can take you where ever, or there are hotels right by them. Hope this helps!
