Chocolate Chip Scones

These Chocolate Chip Scones are incredibly easy to make and are the perfect addition to breakfast or brunch. They are loaded with chocolate chips but are not overly sweet, and are dense enough for slicing open and adding some butter, making them easy to pair with your morning cuppa tea. 

Don’t be scared off by the term scone, I promise you they are so much easier than we believe them to be! They come together in under 10 minutes and will then fill your home with the delicious sweet smell of chocolate and butter while they bake away. 

For this recipe you will need: flour, baking powder, sugar, butter, milk, egg, vanilla and chocolate chips.

One Pot Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

If you’re looking to change up your weeknight pasta game this is the recipe for you – with a handful of simple ingredients and 20 minutes time you will have a flavorful and healthy pasta dinner ready for your family!

We have pasta about once a week in our home – and although I do love a simple butter and Parmesan cheese sauce, I go crazy for a red sauce. Normally a “good” red sauce cooks for hours over low heat and develops it’s flavors, but who has time for that during the week?

Our recipe combines zucchini, browned Italian sausage and a few classic herbs to create a sauce that tastes like Gramma used to make – and it record time too! See below for your shopping list of ingredients.
