It seems another year has flown by and it’s International Scone Week again! The lovely Tandy over at Lavender and Lime is hosting this roundup again so pop on over to find links to all the scones everyone is baking.
My first thought was to make a white cheddar dill scone, I have plenty of the dill in the herb garden and it’s a good flavor combination. Plus I was making a tomato soup that day and they would go well together.
I’m not exactly sure what took so long to put up a biscuit post. We certainly eat biscuits a few times a month. Perhaps it took so long because they disappear very quickly! There isn’t a spare second to photograph them before the boys have inhaled them.

It’s International Scone Week time again! Now here in South Carolina it isn’t exactly scone weather. Not many people are willing to crank up their ovens to 450 degrees in this heat and humidity. I am, of course maybe I have a few screws loose?!

I can’t pick a favorite flavor there since they are all so delicious, but since I had bananas in the freezer I decided it was time to attempt recreating the banana chocolate chunk scone.
I am finally feeling human again and able to eat some food so it was time for a holiday bake. Jack and Ewan have their holiday program tonight so why not let them have a special holiday treat as an after school snack.
One of my favorite holiday flavor combinations is chocolate and peppermint. There is just something about it the screams Christmas to me. Growing up what kid didn’t love candy canes?!
