Stress Induced Scones….

I admit it…. I am a “stress baker”. Whenever I feel stressed or anxious, for any reason, I bake. (see example)

Today, I took Dickens to the groomer. It’s this really cool place called The Green Dog Wash

They use all eco-friendly shampoos, etc…, low-flow hose nozzles, are cage free, and even save the discarded dog hair to send to a company that uses it to make a product used in cleaning up oil spills! However, poor little Dickens started shaking as soon as he realized I was going to leave him. I FELT AWFUL! I immediately ran home and began to bake. I didn’t have time to start making my Vegan Mexican Wedding Cookies. So, I made up something new! Apparently, today stress = scones! Bon Appetit!
