Of Scones and Corn

Much of this blog lately has been about food! I am not surprised. If you know me, you also are not surprised.

Anyway, I would like to put a plug in for a huge variety of Scone Mixes from King Arthur Flour. They may be found here. The baking is quite simple, and the ingredients the home baker would add are butter, milk and an egg. Some of the mixes I have tried include:
  • Apricot Sour Cream
  • Lemon Blueberry
  • Candied Ginger-Apricot
Mixes I would like to try:
  • Buttermilk Currant
  • Harvest Ginger-Pumpkin
  • Cranberry-Orange
  • Italian Herb & Cheese

Also, if you would like to jazz up your corn on the cob this summer, below are links for two recipes which are similar....but different. I haven't tried the FoodNetwork/Rachael Ray recipe yet as it's on tonight's menu, but I enjoy the Cooking Light recipe. Because of the similarity between the two, I anticipate liking the tonight's recipe.

Jalapeno-Lime Corn on The Cob
Lime Butter (Cooking Light)

Update: The Jalapeno-Lime butter for Corn on the Cob was very good! My guests enjoyed it as well (Thanks, Liesl, Whitney & Hilary, for your superb company!)

I love scones! I wish you lived here so we could have tea! Candied Ginger-Apricot sounds wonderful!

I will add my high praise for these scones as well. They make great gifts--either sending several packages to be baked or gifting some already made. Love you Alicia! Auntie Chris
