Delicious day

I'm a little last posting about the pure edible heaven resulted from this chaotic baking session last Friday and I have no excuse... well not a good one. My camera and I just have not been in the same place at the same time these last few weeks and the thought of publishing a post sans photos irks me... but I just cannot seem to find the time to take, edit and post said photos. So here are some lackluster photos... we were more interested in eating than photographing!

Sweet Pea and Ladybug had a friend over for a play date on Friday, which meant that mommy got to have a play date with her favourite cloth diapering, photo taking, sweet-tooth-having friend. In honour of this occasion (which doesn't happen as often as I would like since they live out of town and we have to rely on them to come to us on account of Sweet Pea's incredible car sickness) we decided to make two desserts. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cake in the slow cooker from the year of slow cooking blog and Vanilla Bean Scones from the Pioneer Woman Cooks blog. I have to say, that entire blog is dangerous... dangerous. Firstly she loves butter, secondly she loves vanilla beans. I am in heaven!

Peanut Butter Cup Cake in the slow cooker. It tasted better than it looked but not much more!

The Peanut Butter Cup Cake left me wanting... but not more. I couldn't decide if it wanted to be a cake, or a cookie - the texture bothered me. It was ok, but I probably wouldn't make it again. The Vanilla Bean Scones on the other hand? PURE HEAVEN! There are not words to express just how good these were. YUMMM!!! I will definitely be making these again, and often.

Vanilla bean scones... YUM!
