Photo-op: Seester and Boyfriend…so adorable.
Before heading out Sunday, we enjoyed a family breakfast that ended with lots of hugs and kisses. It was the perfect end to a weekend filled with good food and family fun!
HOW DID YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKEND?
Happy Birthday Seester!
When I was a child, I used to get severe chronic headaches to the point where I would be on bed rest for an entire day. It was miserable. Good thing my mom was a fragrance witch and she knew the remedy for headaches: lavender oil. Genius. She would rub the oil on the temples of my face and bam…within an hour I was up eating mac n’ cheese and playing tag in the back yard with my sister. I love lavender and I still use it whenever I get headaches. I have been wanting to use lavender in a recipe forever. That’s when I decided that lavender and vanilla bean would make great friends. They compliment each other beautifully.
Makes 8 scones (depending on how big or small you like them)
