It's my day off so I finally got around to making the ricotta raspberry scones from smitten kitchen. I couldn't bring myself to use so much full fat ricotta (in fact, I mistakenly bought full fat when I'd planned to run in and buy fat free/low fat) and cream. So I used fat free greek yogurt in place of cream and some of the ricotta. Cut the pieces she recommended into 6 and stuck a fresh raspberry (the last of the season from our canes) on each and they came out a great size. I also, as usual, used less sugar so they came out a little tangy and not sweet - really good. Even my husband likes them.

We're about to make a blueberry pie from the first picking of the year. (My bushes aren't ready yet but there are plenty of places to pick.) It was part of the first meal he ever made for me 20 years ago today. (Or maybe tomorrow.)

Now, just trying to think of what to make for dinner (omelets with ricotta and chopped herbs and arugula from the garden?) for quick after tae kwon do class....

Since our dessert dome has been empty for a couple of days, I made a dozen vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing. HAD to have two for dessert tonight.
