Hi, Alix. I just wondered what the consensus is on which cooks seem to prefer. Sometimes changes or variations on a time-honored system spread to other manufacturers like wildfire; sometimes they just don't go over. I've never seen the lift bowl and know absolutely nothing about it. Care to expound a bit? TIA.

oh yes, kades, by all means--let's do...this certainly is a pleasant way for friends to spend a while together, relaxing with a nice cuppa...don't you want one of these lovely scones, kades--they are Soo good, have one with me--this berry jam tastes just like the huckleberries i used to pick by the pail in the woods--so yummy. you'd never know these scones aren't from scratch. kades, you know, you have your very own special, magical touch when it comes to food and cooking. you know you do, kades. everybody agrees, everyone says so. you know how they say some people have a green thumb because they're good at growing plants? well, what you've got, are these super sweet and savory thumbs--in fact, in your case it has probably spread to all of your fingers and toes, kades....oh, look at the time--thanks for the scones treat, sweetie..such. a nice break from a busy day.....

Glancing over this jar of Apricot Habaņero Jam Shrek bought. I bet this would be good in some scones...

Ah! Mini Buckwheat Scones with craisins, those will be really good. First I soak the craisins in a little orange juice...

I love scones, they go together quickly and wait for you to bake them in the morning.

Please HELP

I dropped of some freshly ground coffee beans for you to enjoy while I am at work. I also wanted to call your attention to the petition on the front counter and ask you to sign it to do your part in preventing unsafe pastries and related medical problems.

Hundreds of thousands of people each year suffer injuries related to eating S.Cones. Complaints range from digestive disorders to injuries of the hand and arm whilst attempting to cut them. In order to prevent future injuries, the petition asks that scones adopt a new name to avoid confusion. In future we hope that scones can be officially renamed to muffiscuits, i.e. part muffin and part biscuit.

Please remember to sign to show your support.
