It’s no secret that I love sweet scones. They are hearty, bready, and all around delicious. I’ve featured two sweet scones on my blog back in November (Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze and Blueberry Scones). Both were a hit, and definitely on the “must repeat” list. However, scones are too delicious to only be sweet. So for this week’s soup, I wanted to make a delicious savory scone to go with it. Because what’s a soup without a hearty piece of bread for dipping?
So for the new year, I decided to make a resolution. I’m already on a fitness journey, so I wanted to pick a resolution that focused on food. I decided I wanted to try a new food each month. Now, this could be a food I’ve never had before, or this could be a food I’ve had but that I personally have not made. So for the next year you will see some recipes that feature one or both parts of my resolution. This is the first post in my resolution collection.
Now, I’m not under the delusion that everyone will love all of my recipes on here. We all have different taste buds, which I appreciate. I certainly don’t like everything that Samuel likes. Having said that, I love posting interesting recipes that are fun and unique. I have really started enjoying trying new things in the kitchen since starting my blog in November. This recipe fall under that category. Will everyone like it? No. It’s different and definitely not the norm.
It’s no secret
sometimes I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I especially have an affinity to the salty and sweet combinations. So, this recipe isn’t so much salty and sweet as it is tangy and savory. This also happens to be a flavor combination I enjoy. I was drawn to this recipe when I first saw it in passing. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite recipes I’ve made to date.
Have you ever eaten a food and wondered where it had been your whole life? It was almost a food epiphany really. Well, I had that. I was making cookies (yes, I made cookies twice this week don’t judge me) again, only this time was different. As I was making them, I thought they looked and smelled pretty good. Then, I baked them. Then, I ate one. My world exploded into colors I’ve never seen before. These are really, really good. If you’ve never had a cookie like this, you’ll wonder where it has been your whole life.
Sometimes simple is better. Not only are simple recipes less time consuming, they yield just as tasty foods. I decided I wanted to go a simple route for some cookies. I love baking, it’s really “my thing.” Therefore, I never got into no bake cookies. I can’t even remember if I’ve made them before. It just wasn’t a thing I would do. So, I decided to give them a try.
Soup Sunday has come and gone once again this week. This time, it swept through with a new recipe. I love trying new soups, and this one was no exception. Normally I make a smoother type of soup. However, this chowder really appealed to me for some reason. Chowders always seemed filling and comforting. This chowder is definitely both.
One of my coworkers inspired this post, and she doesn’t even know it. She mentioned that she was looking for pesto sauce at the store one day and couldn’t find it. I told her she could make her own. I have no idea if she actually did, but my own advice stuck with me. I’ve never made pesto sauce, so it was only right if I tried making it myself. After all, I did suggest it to her, blindly.
So, I don’t want you to judge me. This is another breakfast post. It also involves blueberries. I know I’ve been posting a lot of breakfast items lately. I even posted about a Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake a few days ago. This may be getting a little out of hand, but I promise I can change. I just can’t help it. The blueberry bug bit me this week. As you recall during my pumpkin-palooza in the fall, sometimes I just can’t help but make a few posts about ingredients I love. However breakfast/blueberry crazy I may be going, you shouldn’t resist this recipe. It’s pretty delicious.
I recently had one of those moments where I thought of something I haven’t eaten in a while and I just had to have it. Well, unfortunately for me I wanted ice cream. And ice cream isn’t very healthy for you. So, I pondered on this for a while and tried to get over my need for ice cream. Needless to say it didn’t work. So I started looking into making my own ice cream. Turns out, it’s hard to do without an ice cream maker or machine. I don’t have such a thing. So, I found a way to make it, and the only machine you need is a stand or hand mixer.
