POP ~ Champagne and Dessert Bar





Good Morning! Happy Sunday! I had the most lovely evening catching up with my sister….We spent 3 hours at Pop Champagne and Dessert Bar in old town Pasadena and then had a slumber party back at my place. Such a fun girls night and much needed!



This adorable little haven was perfect with chandeliers and champagne, full dinner menu and incredible desserts. Naturally, since I was in pink….we ordered “Pretty in Pink” Champagne flights to start the night…




We lingered and sipped Champagne catching up about life…nothing better than that for several hours on a Saturday night….especially paired with delicious food!

We had a blast….I am off to take a long walk and then a french lesson this afternoon. I made the most delicious oatmeal raisin scones with maple and honey glaze…..my sister attested these were “so delicious” Enjoy!!!

Oatmeal Raisin Scones

2 cups AP Flour

1 cup oats (old fashioned)

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, cubed

1/3 cup heavy cream

2 eggs

1.5 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup raisins

Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, oats. Separately combine eggs, vanilla, and heavy cream. Chop butter. In a mixer, add cubed butter to dry ingredients. Mix until butter is the size of peas. Whisk your wet ingredients and slowly add to the dry/butter mix. Once combined add in your raisins.

Bake scones at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Toothpick entered into center of scone should come out clean. Let cool completely.

Make your maple/honey glaze…. Combine 1/2 cup powder sugar with 3 tbsp maple syrup and 2 tbsp honey.

Drizzle glaze over scones.
