These easy to prepare biscuits would be perfect for weekend breakfast or brunch.

Just happened upon this blog this morning - what a treat. Beautiful photography and some great recipes. After viewing this post, I want to go straight to the kitchen and make some of these. Go here to get some fantastic ideas.


I made these delicious Marmalade Muffins today. Delicious! They are perfect sweetness, not too sweet, just right. I found this recipe on a blog that I can not find.:( When I do find it, I will credit the blog for the recipe.

Orange Marmalade Muffins

3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup marmalade or jam
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl.

In a large bowl, combine the milk, oil, vanilla, egg and honey together, making sure to fully incorporate all the ingredients. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and slowly mix until just combined. Dump in the marmalade and walnuts (if using) and slowly fold into the batter, making sure to leave the marmalade streaky.

Pour into muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
