Easy Scone Recipe, Holly's Obsession, and a Cozy Mystery Book Recommendation

Have y'all started baking more now that it's getting closer to Fall and all the holidays? Oh my goodness...I can't seem to stop baking things!

I've been making this chocolate chip scone recipe for years and it's SO good!

It's from Sandra Lee (love her!) Here's a link to the recipe if you're interested: Mocha Chip Scones Recipe

I also made some pumpkin bread...

I always make two loaves (at least) and it's so nice to have it around for snacks and breakfast. 

Y'all...Holly is OBSESSED with ribbon!!! 

She LOVES to play with ribbon! And what's funny is that she totally prefers the red or pink ribbon to any other color. Lol! She will grab her ribbon, drag it over close to me, drop it at my feet and sit there looking from me to the ribbon while meowing until I get up and drag it around for her. Ha! She sure has figured out a way to communicate, despite our lack of a common language. :)

Oh, I almost forgot...I also made this chocolate bundt cake...

Do you see all that icing? That's a double recipe! Some days you just need a little (or a lot) of chocolate in your life. :)

Okay, I've talked about my love of Cozy Mystery books HERE. Basically a "cozy mystery" is more of a light mystery with little or no blood and gore. Most of them inject a little humor too. In the link above I talked about some of my favorites. My mom recently found a new cozy mystery series she's enjoying and since we pretty much have the same taste in books, I gave them a try and I loved them! The author is Gayle Trent and they're the "Myrtle Crumb Mysteries." Here's a link to her website where she talks about the series:

I think they're only available on Kindle right now. I got it on my Kindle, but my mom has the Kindle app on her iPhone and got it on there. The books are a quick read (around 100 pages each) and are only .99 cents on Amazon!!

Have y'all read any good books lately? Do tell!

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!
