But these gems are super simple to throw together, super moist, super fall spice-y, have a heady lid of streusel (my fav) and a drizzle of the most delicious boozy, bourbon drizzle (that you can make booze free if you’re not into it!). Whew. Are we…

Blood Orange Scones


Oh winter citrus, how do I love thee? There are too many ways to count. I just can’t get enough of you. Combining you with a scone is almost too good to be true. Almost. These Blood Orange Scones are moist. I mean, shut-the-front-door moist. She’s beautiful. Just look at her. And that citrus flavor isn’t just hiding behind a veil with her head down,…

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze


I love-loathe Sundays. I don’t like to make plans on Sunday and I secretly judge people that plan an event that requires me to leave the house on a Sunday. We can still be friend but if we’re to be really good friends, this has to cease. The only outing I’ll consider on a Sunday is one that involves equal parts…

Strawberry Scones With Fresh Whipped Orange Blossom Cream


Sunday morning I carried my breakfast (Olive oil-fried egg on sourdough toast with tomatoes + balsamic. Try it. You’ll love it.) and latte to the backyard. Still in my pajamas I sat on an old, battered, sun-bleached adirondack and just ate and sipped. There was no rushing. No half-eaten bagels. No missing homework. Gavin was laying on the couch building…

Fudgy Chocolate-Espresso Donuts With Greek Yogurt Glaze


Are we still nervous about baked donuts? I get it. Donuts should be fried. Laden with lots of unhealthy fats and that perfect exterior crunch. And I will never, and you have my word on this, turn down a real, fried (preferably an old-fashioned) donut. For as long as I live, that’s a promise. However, and this is a big…

Chocolate Almond Scones


You knew my love of scones was going to morph into some little chocolate number. I’ve actually been hanging onto this chocolate almond scones recipe for probably a year. I know. Sorry. They’re so good. But I needed a bit of a scone sabbatical. Once I stopped baking them for the bakery we needed a break. But enough time has passed and…

Brown Butter Pumpkin Donuts


I really resisted the whole baked donut thing. For a long time. Cast them aside as imposters. Heretics. Then one day as I was mindlessly perusing Bed, Bath & Beyond I spied a donut tin heaped on top of a messy pile of towels and tooth brush holders and shower caps. I held it up and inspected it. I had visions of me…

Petite Raspberry Scones + Fresh Lemon Glaze


How’s it going? End of school, blazing pre-summer heat + life have kept me from you. I’m sorry. I’m back. And I’m seriously backlogged with truckloads of recipes that I want to share with you. Think savory Spaghetti + Meatballs  that comes together quickly. Or what about that Salted Caramel Brown Butter Blondie Ice Cream that I’ve been parading around…

Fresh Strawberry Scones


Periodically I like to put on some grubby clothes, slather my face with sunscreen, pull on my Hunters and make my way out to my planter beds. From November to March, my beds are a little sparse and contain rogue growth…usually the result of anything I let go to seed the prior season. This year, I had beds full of arugula, parsley…

Tart Cherry Almond Scones


| tart cherry almond scones | Someone requested these for the bakery and I sort of thought, meh…what’s the big with cherry almond scones. Holy crap you guys, these are my new favorite. Super simple to make. Everything’s a staple, none of this what’s-in-season crap. Pure heaven. Sometimes, by Sunday, when it’s the perfect scone-making day, my produce has dwindled…

Gingerbread Scones + Boozy Spiced Rum Schmooey


gingerbread scones + boozy spiced rum schmooey { it’s happening } The holidays are here. Did you know that? Where did they come from? How did this happen? I haven’t bought one gift. Made not one list. Nary a tree graces the living room, nor lights hanging from the eaves. And, I’m embarrassed to admit, we might even have some Halloween…

Holiday Cranberry Orange Scones


holiday cranberry orange scones  { thanksgiving breakfast } I don’t have a ton to say. I ruptured a disc in my back several years ago (which I don’t talk about much because it makes me feel like the old-lady emoji) and I seem to have re-annoyed it. After standing on my feet all morning baking cranberry orange scones my toes…

Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones


Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones { options } I like options, that’s no secret. So this pumpkin scones recipe has two schmooey options. First, a nice maple schmooey that screams fall. Second, an anise schmooey for those of you that want to wake up your taste buds a bit. This latter schmooey adds a nice kick to the smooth, warm flavors of the…
