Rhubarb Ginger Multigrain Scones

Scones. These scones. They say so much about where I am in life at this moment, what things have transpired to bring me to this day and this batch of deliciousness. I have been struggling mightily lately to find a block of time where I can summon both the energy and enthusiasm needed, and also the time necessary, to settle into my kitchen and bake. Baking has always been a source of comfort for me, but in the harder moments when energy and passion are at a minimum (or simply don’t exist at all), sometimes I just can’t be bothered. But on a recent trip home, I plucked some luscious red rhubarb stalks from my mom’s garden, vowing that I would make them into something magical. I found a recipe online that seemed like a good starting place, then put together my own recipe with the usual tweaks and changes, and came up with something that I really love. (more…)


Trail Mix and Breakfast Parfaits

When it comes to eating during the work week, I am a woman of habit. I generally cycle between 2-3 different breakfast options, 2-3 different snacks, and either a salad, soup or leftovers for lunch. I make almost every meal that I eat from scratch, so sticking to a few staples makes it easier on my routine, and a little bit less time consuming. But admittedly, eating mostly the same things all the time does get pretty boring, and I often find myself wishing for something new and different. (more…)


Sweet Potato Pancakes

Hello, web friends! It’s been a while. I’ve decided to stop apologizing for my long absences since they’re just my reality right now, but it’s always good to be back.

Granola Coconut Banana Muffins, and a Birthday

Today is the fourth anniversary of the day this blog was born. In some ways, I feel like Sweetly Serendipity came out of the womb with me, it’s like a part of my identity, even in the quiet moments when weeks stretch on without so much as a word. We know each other in intimate ways, and the words I lay here are the truest words I know. In other ways, I feel like we’re still getting to know each other, I’m shifting and shaping each post carefully, and often wondering what our future together looks like. I look forward to it with the same excitement you might look forward to a marriage, or a deep friendship – I see so many good things and happy moments as far down the road as the eye can see, and that’s a pretty special thing.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

I took the month of September off from the Secret Recipe Club, so this is my first post in a couple of months and it feels good to be back! For October, I was assigned Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, a blog written by Jamie. Jamie has a great blog full not only of recipes, but lots of sewing and crafting tutorials – something I’m trying to get into lately! I had a lot of fun looking through her site and getting inspired.
