food / 01

To some people food is merely the means to gain energy to get through day, to others it is something that is hard to come by, while for others still it is much more. It is healing, it is comforting, and food can trigger memories of childhood or first dates or holiday times. I love food. I love food for all those reasons listed above and it is my life goal to provide food for people who cannot provide it for themselves. I am currently a culinary arts student at the Art Institute of Jacksonville and I am one of three meal supervisors at the Sulzbacher Center, which is a homeless shelter that prepares and serves over 1200 meals a day.

Beyond that I love Jesus and He is the reason that I want to serve people through food and preparing food. I love to make things and inspire people through what I make, whether its food or some other craft. I hope these recipes and little tidbits that I share will inspire someone.

carefully fold in blueberries and white chocolate chips, if you don’t like biting into whole blueberries then squish them a bit in a separate bowl with a fork before folding in. i personally love the texture it adds when the fruit are kept whole and if you do squish them your scones will be purple! white chocolate blueberry scones by calli for CREATE LIKE CRAZY

pour out onto plastic wrap and form into a square, place into your fridge for at least 20 minutes, letting the dough rest

* important tips for this recipe
- make sure all of your ingredients are cold, you don’t want your butter to melt or you will have sad flat scones
- don’t skip the chilling step
- when you are mixing the butter and flour together make sure you leave pea sized chunks of butter, it makes for fluffly scones!
