Flour, Sugar, Salt: A Baker's Gift from the Heart

My good friend, Kathleen has a baking business called Flour Sugar Salt that specialized in handmade scones. Inspired by her Scottish grandmother, Kathleen has adapted her family recipe into 3 delicious varieties that she bakes and sells by the dozen: Blueberry, Cherry or Cranberry.

We met for tea to celebrate our birthdays (a detailed post about that tomorrow!) and she surprised me with a batch of her blueberry scones that she had baked that morning!  It was a beautiful presentation; She arranged her scones in a dish towel-lined serving basket with three beautiful boxes of tea. Are we kindred spirits, or what?

I told her that the tea boxes were so pretty, I might just make one into a clock! Remember when I converted a pancake mix box?

If you live in southeastern Michigan and love traditional baked goods, you must order some scones from Kathleen's Flour Sugar Salt.  And like her Facebook page to see her farmer's market schedule.  

The beauty and tradition of baking is alive and well. Bravo!
