Goodbye March!

You were a busy month. You whizzed right by me with almost no opportunity for me to bake. But it’s time for you to go now. April is knocking at the door and I see she’s bringing flour and eggs and baking pans.

Dscn5088_2But before you go, March, I wanted to thank you for bringing Beth Hensperger’s Bread for Breakfast with you. What an incredible book! Small, but worth every penny. Every recipe I tried was a pleasure and it’s so obvious that Ms. Hensperger is a lover of bread an an excellent teacher.

I had to try one more recipe, before I could let you take this book from me. Because dried apricots have always reminded me of little gems, I decided to try the Apricot, White Chocolate and Walnut Scones. Sure enough, out of the oven, the tiny pieces of apricot glimmered like jewels, surrounded by melty rings of white chocolate.

How I enjoyed these scones! Diets be damned, I piled them all high with butter and jam and made sure to lick my fingers when I was done.

So long, March. See you next year!
