Tulips Anyone?

A quick and easy way to make tulips is by cutting out three ovals and overlapping them. I used a paper tulip on this card along with a stamped stem and patterned paper for the sky and grass. It reminds me of Amsterdam...


The next two recipes are the perfect combination. Homemade fig chia seed jam and drop scones pair together perfectly. The jam is not overly sweet, so it does not overpower the taste of the drop scones. They compliment each other perfectly.

Fig Chia Seed Jam

Fig Chia Seed Jam
1/3 cup dried figs
¼ cup water
1 tbsp chia seeds

Put the figs in a microwavable bowl and cover them with about ½ cup of water. Microwave for 2 minutes. Drain off all but ¼ cup of the water. Process the dried figs, ¼ cup water, and chia seeds until a paste forms. Refrigerate until cooled.

drop scones

Drop Scones
1 egg
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp cream of tartar
1 tbsp oil
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar

Beat egg. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Stir in the wet ingredients slowly. Mix well, but not too much. Roll into balls and squish flat. Cook on a lowly heated pan until the middle is cooked.
Any other homemade jam or jelly would go great with these drop scones. Check out my cherry chia seed jam, peach chia seed jam, strawberry chia seed jam, or strawberry jelly.
