Savory Cheddar Bacon Scones

One Saturday morning, Kev brought home a savory Cheddar Bacon Scones from the bakery down the street. I must have scowled. “Savory Cheddar Bacon Scones? Were they all out of the sweet rolls?” I asked. I’m not a huge fan of bacon, or cheddar, and I take my scones sweet. Sometimes you say just as much by what you don’t say. And I’ve never said bacon before on this site, and probably never said “cheddar bacon scones” in the same sentence. I’ve also never said eggs benedict. Or meatloaf. Or hotdogs. Or goat cheese. Or shrimp. Or oysters. Or beer, unless it has to do with beer bread. I’m down with beer bread. “How do you have a food blog?” they say. And then I remind them of the hiring process, or the lack thereof.  Read more

Pumpkin Scones

I’d make these pumpkin scones once a week if my hips could lie. I never really thought to put pumpkin into a scone. But then again, I don’t think about a lot of things. My soon-to-be-neighbor Lucy asked how I come up with recipes. I told her I wish I could attribute it to my brilliantly creative mind.
