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


Friends, let’s make some delicious maple oat scones! 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…

A split scone with whipped cream and fresh strawberries

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…

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…

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


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 and I don’t want to get…

Gingerbread Scones + Boozy Spiced Rum Schmooey


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 decorations still strewn about. It’s weighing heavily on me. I’m usually…

Holiday Cranberry Orange Scones


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 were going numb and it was hurting like…

Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones


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 pumpkin scones. I did some maple (for my…

Bacon Cheddar Chive Petite Scones


Anytime I can throw bacon, cheese and onions in something, I will. I wanted to dabble in savory scones for quite some time but just hadn’t found the time or occasion. So when I had the opportunity to cater a large lunch recently, I knew my time had come. I didn’t put these bacon cheddar chive scones on the proposed…

Petite Raspberry + Blueberry Scones With Hella Lemon Glaze


My life has consisted of two meals lately: noodles and scones. I’ve been messing around with chow mein noodles, rice noodles, pad Thai noodles and zucchini noodles (which we’re calling vasta, right???). I’ve been dressing them in slightly spicy peanut sauce, a thicker soy-based sauce or a heavy-on-the-sesame sauce. Sort of like my own little culinary version of My Size…

Tangerine Scones


Yesterday I waxed on about weekday and weekend recipes. So my usual scone recipe does not use butter. But I see scone recipes all the time using butter and I thought…I love baked goods with butter. What am I resisting? So my previous scones have been anointed the weekday scones…and these with the butter, cream and egg are weekend scones.…

Apple Cinnamon Cherry Scones


My life is currently filled with two lists. One list is filled with “have-to-dos” and the other with “want-to-dos”. The first sucks up most of my daylight hours. The latter is filled with all of the things that make me happy: hanging out with my kids, writing, baking, gardening, laying in bed reading. As I read this list it sounds like I should…

Pumpkin Scones


The only scones I ever eat are my mom’s. My son called her up last Sunday morning just so she would get out of bed and make them for us. She did, and they were perfect. Every time. She and my sister love the Starbuck’s pumpkin scone. Never tried it. You literally cannot turn a corner on the Internet right now without…
