Oh HELLOOOO fall flavors! Are you guys ready for this? Yeah, I AM!
One of the best things about moving to Portland (that sentence could end with pretty much ANY true statement about living in Portland...) has been connecting with other people in the food (blogging or otherwise) community. THERE ARE MORE FREAKS LIKE ME! People who drool over cute little ceramic dishes! People who stand on chairs at restaurants and make their companions move their hands to specific places! People who don't mind having tacos and then doughnuts and then more doughnuts and then cake, all before noon! People who stress out about photo backdrops and correct use of snapchat! My people! This is the first time I've ever lived, and connected with, other food blogger people... and I'm psyched!
Last week I rode my bike over to Cindy's house (and realized I desperately need some fenders/winter bike) where we talked about food blogger stuff (ad networks! social media! photography! brands! props! friends!) and made these scones that are fall as fall can be. Last week was cool and super autumnal in Portland, so it felt fitting. I got to cuddle Casper (which you saw if you follow me on snapchat: thekitchenpaper!) while I watched Cindy do all the work to make these scones in her gorgeous kitchen. And I munched on the toasted pecans and sipped my coffee, and nearly let Casper spill my coffee (clearly I am not a mom!).
You can find the recipe for these pretty scones over on Hungry Girl Por Vida! Go give Cindy some love! She's super fun and if you like food and/or babies and/or makeup and/or anything fun, she's your girl. Get at her on facebook and instagram and twitter and Pinterest, too!
Recipe is HERE!

These look amazing! Want them now.
I love Portland. Visited often when I lived on Mt. Hood this past winter. Awesome food scene. You description of finally meeting your tribe is how I felt when I worked my first seasonal job.
Thanks, Tricia! I'm jealous you lived on Mt. Hood! What a beautiful place to spend a winter! I'm glad you found a tribe — it makes life so much more fun! xo
