Warm and Comforting Vanilla Oat Scones

December 09, 2014


As I write this, it is snowing. And for those of us who are about to enter the throes of winter, we’ll be seeing snow for quite some time. Naturally, we must combat the weather with comfort food!

I don’t know about you, but few things say “comfort” quite like a fresh, warm scone, and these beauties from my friend Krista certainly fit the bill. I like to use brown rice flour and gluten free oats in mine, but you can adjust to suit your particular preferences. Just make sure you eat them warm with butter or homemade maple cream—while wrapped up in a cozy blanket with your favorite cup of tea, of course.

Recipe and photography by Krista Bjorn at Rambling Tart: Vanilla Oat Scones

  6. Cut into wedges and place on baking sheet covered with baking paper.
  7. Brush tops with beaten egg and sprinkle with raw sugar.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes until scones have risen and tops are golden brown.

A Standard of Transparency

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
