Instagram post 2134941209288835150_2050690299 A wonder in Maryland,  the Assateague National Seashore where wild feral horses๐ŸŽ run free and roam everywhere. The beach and the dunes have plentiful white sand. Birds such as Herons, Egrets, Eagles๐Ÿฆ… and Pelicans are everywhere. There are about 320 different species of amimals. The marshes are gorgeous this time of year turning golden. ๐Ÿงก
๐Ÿ’›
There are lovely boardwalks as well so you can see everything up close. This is on a barrier island so its eco system is dynamic. 
You can stay at near by Ocean City, Maryland and have a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Facts about  Assateague Island: 37 mile (60 km) barrier island along the Atlantic ocean. 
There are about 300 ponies that are supposedly decendants from a sunken Spanish galleon ship.

 2/3 of the island is in Maryland and 1/3 is in Virginia but you can only see the horses easily in Maryland.

Instagram post 2126265274126025090_2050690299 One last picture of my gardens as we say goodbye to a wonderful summer. This is the place where many of my food pictures were shot. It is wild and overgrown as I love it. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’ฎ
I hope everyone has a great day.  I am traveling for work for a few days, so it may be a few days until I can answer comments.  Thanks so much for all the love from everyone. I appreciate all your support and good wishes every day.

Instagram post 2124028797287619644_2050690299 This summer has been magical with sunny days and Hummingbirds.  This ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒ summer day๐ŸŒโ˜€๏ธ deserved some coffeeโ˜• and pink๐Ÿ’— biscuits, recipe courtesy of @laurieandfluffy.  These are replicas of the famous French @biscuitsfossier Le Biscuits Rose. The company is in Reims in the Champagne area.
๐Ÿฅ‚
๐Ÿฅ‚
Using some baking forms that were as close as possible to the originals, these were baked back home in Canada. These are a nice sweet cookie that apparently started because there was extra bread dough and they ended up as biscuits, so they are made with yeast. Very tasty and so pretty in pink.

The china has an interesting story.  It is made by The Imperial Porcelain Company from St Petersburg. Russia.  It is from the White Collection. 
I bought it when I was living in Lagos, Nigeria a few years ago. ๐ŸŒŽ
I quite like the gold insignias on the china. Looks a lot like the symbol for various causes such as breast cancer awareness if it was in pink. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ฎ
With Laurie's permission,  I will publish the recipe soon. This was shot in my backyard set against a backdrop of wild flowers including Queen Anne's Lace.
๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’ฎ
Enjoy your week and in Canada and USA  it is the last day of Labour Day holiday.

Instagram post 2119101413614516405_2050690299 A tribute to Monet and his๐Ÿ’ฎ Water Lily๐Ÿ’ฎ paintings and my recent post from the @naplesbotanical. Presenting a sugar free blueberry and blackberry tart with a homemafe lower calorie tart crust. The ornaments are Lily pads and water lilies made from pie crust and painted with Wilton Wilton colours and sanding sugar. They were free hand cut with a sharp knife and painted. 
The picture is shot in my backyard in my back garden. Lots of wild flowers.

Wishing everyone a happy new week and Monday. Summer is quickly coming to an end with the arrival of Monarch Butterflies in greater numbers. It has been a beautiful summer filled with flowers and birds. .

Instagram post 2115361403153265597_2050690299 Just sitting enjoying the ๐ŸŒณview๐ŸŒณ today at @theroostwineco and I see two Hummingbirds ๐Ÿ•Šfly into a big tree. So I followed them to the flower garden nearby and there was the female Ruby Throated Hummingbird floating and feasting on the flowers. The owners feed the birds there so I'm sure it is a favourite place for them.
If you live in Ontario, and haven't visited The Roost Winery,  you need to. It is stunning and the wines are fantastic. 
Please enjoy my friends.

Instagram post 2111860860271205965_2050690299 ๐ŸคฉHealthy Biscuits๐Ÿคฉ: I have never been very good at biscuits. Usually they resemble hockey pucks ๐Ÿ’rather than a baked goodl. So I jumped at the chance to try my luck once again. This one was originally published by @nytcooking. I made some updates to the original recipe to it to decrease calories, sugars and saturated fats.
๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ This one could qualify as breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner. Take your pick.
The substitution of @libertecanada Skyr yoghurt in the biscuits adds lightness. I replaced the ricotta in the original recipe. And I added some wonderful tastes to the tomato cobbler filling too. What are baked tomatoes without shallots, vinegar and garlic? It is easy and total time is about 1 ยฝ hours from start to finish. I recommend serving them hot. ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…
Using multi-coloured tomatoes from @sobeys made it more fun. I like the shallots instead of onions as they add a bit more zip. Putting some vinegar in with the mix adds some tang as well. 
Instead of buttermilk I used what I call Faux Buttermilk which is milk, vinegar and a bit of Skyr Yoghurt. Lower in calories and saturated fats and also who has that laying around the fridge? I included this mini recipe. ๐Ÿ˜‹
The revised version of the recipe is on my website: bakingcuisinetravel.fun. Link in the profile. Try this one, you will love it.
