Last week Meiling, Noah, and I did some baking. We made graham crackers from one of my favorite cookbooks, Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It by Karen Solomon. They turned out very well – I think they tasted pretty similar to graham crackers you get at the store. Well, that could be taken in a bad way. They had an identifiable graham cracker taste.
After the graham crackers, I made Cranberry Walnut Scones with some help from Noah. They turned out quite well. We had them at a friends’ house about four years ago, and they gave us the recipe. I think I had only made them once before. They are very good, even with the dried cranberries. I am not a big fan of dried fruit in baked goods, but I don’t made the cranberries at all!

Mmmm…of course it has to eaten off of a blue transferware plate!
