Every now and then I get in the mood to try my hand at baking some thing different.
Even if it doesn't turn out it makes the house smell great as long as I haven't burned it.
I chose easy recipes since I have been known NOT be exact on the ingredients. 

My first recipe was scones....I couldn't sleep to save my life, so at 2:30 am I was up baking.
I really didn't think my husband would like them. He is more of a bacon eggs or omlet kind of guy, but he surprised me.
My son has made scones before on his own so I knew he would enjoy them.

I had all the basic ingredients for the dough/ batter, but no currents or raisins on hand,so they were replaced with mini 
chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Otherwise I followed the recipe the way it was written.

( Above: dough cut into triangles, ready to bake. )

Hot out of the oven!

The next recipe was super easy and quick, but yummy! 
Cinnamon-Sugar pizza with cresent rolls

This one is pretty self explanatory . It reminded me of the dessert pizzas you get in a buffet.
For the glaze I just used powdered sugar, warm water and a splash of vanilla.
Be sure not to add to much water. Just a little at a time while mixing with the powdered sugar
until it's the right consistency.

Last but not least is my mom's basic Zucchini Bread Recipe. I have no idea where 
she found it, but as far as I can remember she's always used this one.
There is nothing fancy about this recipe at all, but I make it every 
year and always have requests for more from family and friends.
My record to date is thirteen loaves, and still wasn't enough lol.
Lots of growing boys between my own family and our friends families.

 Zucchini Bread Recipe:

1 C  finely grated zucchini
2 eggs , well beaten
1 1/2 C sifted all purpose flour
1/2 TSP baking soda 
1/2 TSP baking powder
1C sugar
1 TSP vanilla 
1/2 TSP salt 
1/2 C oil

 Mix all ingredients together and pour into greased 
and floured loaf pan. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.
( I like to check the middle like you would a cake before 
taking it out of the oven. If it's already well browned and looks done 
but the middle still needs a few minutes, just place some foil on 
top to prevent burning ).

Note: this recipe makes one loaf

It was fun experimenting with the new recipes and like visiting an old friend 
with the old one.
Nothing burned! It's all good:)
