Blueberry Lemon Scones

I love breakfast foods. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, hash browns, sausage, bacon…I could go on and on. But I’ll stop since it’s even making me hungry! However, I don’t have enough time in the morning during the week for real breakfast, which would consist of the foods I mentioned above. So I’ve been eating something quick like Instant Oatmeal or Chobani yogurt (have you tried the Blood Orange? I’m in love), but after a while it just gets old. I need to change up what I eat so that I don’t get of the same thing day after day (which happens!) I had some beautiful blueberries in my refrigerator so I decided to make some Blueberry Lemon Scones. Who doesn’t love a scone? They just melt in your mouth and leave you wanting another…and another…until they are all gone! [Read more...]

An Apology and WWYMW?

First I want to take a moment to apologize for my blog being a hot mess yesterday. The designer that made my background and header images was hosting them on Photobucket, and they are having “issues” to say the least. So I had to wait until last night until she could transfer them over for me. I’m in the process of getting them moved over to my server so we shouldn’t have this issue again.

Okay, now that I have that out of the way – I have a “WWYMW?” – What Would You Make With… question. I got a box of fresh organic produce yesterday from Suburban Organics. LivingSocial offered this deal for $19 and I jumped on it. I didn’t think $19 was bad for a box of fresh organic produce that was delivered right to me! I don’t think I’d pay the normal price ($39), but this was great for a one-time thing.  It was filled with organic fruits and vegetables such as valencia oranges, lemons, fuji apples, braeburn apples, strawberries, yams, russet potatoes, a red onion, button mushrooms, and arugula.  I have plans for everything except the Arugula.

So tell me – what would you make with this big bunch of Arugula?
