Homemade Sourdough Cold Cereal

Homemade Sourdough Cold Cereal | It's been fun to tackle the cereal challenge over the years, discovering everyone's preferences and searching for the perfect crunchy texture. This may sound silly, but we like a cereal that doesn't immediately go soggy once submerged in milk. For a long time, I achieved all of this with my oven, but my husband blessed me with an Excalibur dehydrator this last Christmas, which has greatly improved the texture of our cereal! | GNOWFGLINS.com

Tea Scones with Mock Devonshire Cream

Tea Scones with Mock Devonshire Cream | Our family's scones are a far cry from the large, overly sweet, glazed concoctions found in an upscale coffee shop. Our recipe makes more of a small, lightly sweetened biscuit. We bake and enjoy them often. In fact, nearly ten years ago and in honor of my British heritage, I -- with the help of a bridesmaid -- baked hundreds for my high tea wedding reception. I hope you enjoy these scones and cream as much as we do! | GNOWFGLINS.com
