Food Luxe: Orange Cranberry Scones

I was in the baking spirit and wanted to make a treat that was easy and required ingredients that I already had in my kitchen.

The Link for the ingredients I found called for baking soda which I was out of so my so- called muffins came out as Scones.

So I made Cranberry Orange Scones

They are simple to make and very yummy.


2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cranberries or Craisins
1 egg
3/4 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
3/4 cups of oatmeal

Optional Topping:
 Flax Seeds


1. Combine dry ingredients.
2. Stir in cranberries.
3. Beat egg, orange juice, oil and orange rind.
4. Add to dry ingredients all at once.
5. Stir just to moisten.
6. Spoon into greased muffin cups.
7. (fill 3/4 full).
8. Spring tops lightly with a bit of Flax Seeds
9. Bake 400F 15-20 mins til lightly browned and firm to the touch.

Inspiration from: 

Pregnant Date Night

Dressing sexy while pregnant can be a challenge.

A. You may feel funny at the fact that your trying to be sexy while you are with child.

B. You may think  you don't have anything in your current wardrobe that will fit the look that you are going for.

This is a look from September when I was 3 months pregnant
These two pieces I previously owned the dress gave needed stretch in my belly area and the blazer left unbuttoned added a  nice pop of color to my look.
