back to baking

I used to bake a lot. For the past year or two, not so much. I've finally gotten back into baking... and I think my waistline is showing it. This weekend I made some scrumptious, from scratch (of course) savory scones. Full of garlic, herbs, & cheese... mmm mmm mmm! I used to baking professionally at a little corner french cafe in Savannah, GA called Cafe Mucha (unfortunately you won't be able to find it because it was sold a few years ago). I was the scone queen. Not going to be modest about it. I made the best scones, in many, many flavors. It was so much easier baking in a commercial kitchen than in a home one, but they still taste like magic. 
Last weekend I wasn't so successful. I tried making Whoopie Pies for the first time. The cookies turned out right, but the filling was a big ol' whoopie mess! It melted and went everywhere
Not sure what's coming next weekend, but pumpkin season is right around the corner, and I LOVE all things pumpkin!
