Cheddar and Chive Scones

These reminded me of the cheddar bay scones at Red Lobster, but home made and a lot less fattening and greasy.

I was on a scone making tear last night. I started out thinking only in terms of sweet–I have a go-to recipe on Epicurious.com that is so easy to customize. This night I decided to make raisin and lemon scones and lavender and lemon scones. This was mostly because this was what was available in my pantry. But spring has arrived here in Baltimore, and I some of my herbs from last season have made a comeback. The one that has thrived the best so far were my chives, and so looking into my fridge, I got an idea–how about some savory scones? Get all the ingredients out and just knock three types out while the oven is literally hot?

Blueberry Lemon “Muffin Tops”

September 4, 2008

Like just about everyone and their mom, I went wild for fresh blueberries this summer. The first few quarts I purchased were promptly consumed, fresh as can be.

Because I often rush out the door in the morning, I don’t always have time for a hot breakfast, which is my preference. Cereal is hard to pack and go if you’re driving (or carpooling), and every time I buy milk and leave it at work so that I can eat when I get in, I end up wasting most of it (because my commute is 45-60 minutes long, I am also starving by the time I get to work). Blueberry scones seemed to be a good bet, and so that’s the idea I went with.

Fold the blueberries gently into the batter mixture.
