My New Baking Gadget – Scooper Dooper

I have always like to shop for new kitchen tools or baking gadget. While we were watching the Canadian Best Recipes Ever, the chef was using a scooper dooper all the time. It seems to be a super convenient tool. However, we were unable to find it in Halifax. Thankfully, I found it in Seattle University District last week. I stated using it and found it to be really useful especially in cutting my cookie dough and biscotti dough. For those bakers out there, this is definitely a good tool to have!

Cinnamon Raisin Scone


Finally, I have gotten back into my baking mood. I am inspired to bake some goodies for my sisters and nephews. I have been baking Chocolate Chip Cookie , Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti and Cranberry Scone for the past 2 days. However, as I am running out of cranberry, I have replaced the cranberry in the scone with 1/2 cup raisin and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. The texture and taste is just as great. Check it out!

Baking is so inspiring and my whole house is filled with the aroma of baking. Above all, baking for your loved ones made it even more fulfilling. Hope they will love it as much as I did baking for them.Baking for Family
