I'm not really complaining.. I'm glad that even without the glaze tthey got rave reviews.. By the biggest food critic in our home..

Cranberry Orange Scones Recipe
This week I made candied orange slices. Nothing like taking a healthy fruit and Americanizing it a little. We are hosting an Ugly Sweaters and Board Games party Saturday night, and I plan to dress up these babies with chocolate and sprinkled sea salt. However, they are delicious on their own. The candy shell was too easy to make. I had no idea that it is just sugar and water. Enjoy!

Candied Orange Slices
Ladies, this challenge was something else. Four attempts in three days. My first attempt was an Orange Almond cake and orange infused hot chocolate. A nice tea time treat. Not really. I took a photo but in truth, utter failure. So I walked away for a day. I grabbed a book from the shelf and scanned it thinking that I may find some decent orange recipes. Good news everyone! One of my go to food writers didn't let me down. This recipe is too simple. That's the beauty of it.
From Elizabeth David's Christmas
Peel a few oranges and cut them in large pieces (I went with Mandarin oranges, just segment them), taking out the pips, adding a few spoonfuls of orange-flower water, stir, then sprinkle lightly with powdered cinnamon. Is very soothing.
I thought that was too easy, so here's a bonus recipe. Do the same thing with the oranges as above. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with vanilla infused sugar. Allow to sit for several minutes. Make your favorite French toast recipe (or even baked cinnamon toast) and rather than top with syrup, top with the oranges. Too yummy.
I definitely met my quota of vitamin C this week.
So it's Friday night... and we have the orange persimmon challenge this week and I obviously was not prepared. So, I happen to have this orange tree in my backyard that I've been watering all summer long and it finally has some oranges that are ripe enough to start eating... or in this case drinking... I figure with the cold and flu season upon us and everybody needing extra vitamin C this is a great way for me to get that extra vitamin C.... and a little vitamin V... 🤓
I squeezed about five fresh oranges into my designated cup I added a little ice and I put in some sky vodka. It was extremely tart and sour so I threw in some sugar to taste... Aaaaahhh... A great way to start the beginning of a week long vacation...
Walla a homemade screwdriver....
Peace and love be upon you in this time of rejoicing.
God bless & good health!

I have played around with this in different variations for a few years now. My favorite sweet combo is orange and chocolate. Its the easiest thing to make. Preheat the oven to 375. Open a can of crescent rolls. Separate and lay flat on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Sprinkle orange zest onto each triangle place chocolate chips on widest part. Roll up like you would a crescent roll tucking the sides in so the chocolate doesn't escape. Cook for about 10 min. Take out of,oven and while still warm drizzle a glaze of powdered sugar and fresh orange juice over them. I have done these with cranberry sauce inside and orange glaze over the top as well.
Bless us O Lord and these, thy gifts
Happy Saturday from,
