Drop Scone Recipe + Pairing

Guest Contributor: Photographer Michelle Kujawski With so many bee keepers the area of Wisconsin where we live, we wanted to create a snack spread putting local honey at the focus and accent with some other local specialties. We used honey from Pink Teepee Farm in Ottowa, Wisconsin, homemade scones, and fresh Lavender Chevre cheese from Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee. Our goal was to demonstrate how easy it is to create a beautiful spread with simple ingredients.  Drop Scone INGREDIENTS: 2 cups flour 1/3 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons cold butter, diced 1/2 cup …

Snacking. One of America’s most underrated pastimes. Eating between meals? It’s an art form. If it were up to me, snacking would be a spectator sport. I can see it now: bright lights on a big field, the stands filled with eager enablers, a seasoned professional walks onto the fresh-cut grass, he downs a whole bag of potato chips, the crowd goes wild.  Okay enough of my food fantasies. Clearly I have an unhealthy obsession with snacking and have recently committed to making more health-conscious choices. That’s why I was excited to team up with Bob’s Red Mill to create …

Bourbon Bacon Scones

You are probably very familiar with scones. They’re sweet, delicious, and hail from Great Britain… what’s not to love? They are a morning staple that never fails to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Truly a perfected food. Or are they? I set out to challenge the traditional notion of the scone by making a savory, meat garnished version. The results were excellent. Now, I am absolutely not saying that they can rival the classically sweet treat, but they certainly are a delicious alternative when you want to shake things up. Plus I have added a bit of …

Tortellini Muffins

Dinnertime. The moment of truth in my busy household. After a busy day of work and mommy-ing, do I attempt to make a full dinner? Will anyone notice the difference between a fresh cooked meal and a frozen one? How fast can the pizza delivery guy arrive? Even as a professional recipe developer, sadly this is my actual thought process 90% of the time. Us working parents know all too well that by the time dinner comes, you are just too tired. Period. Add on top of that the fact that certain miniature people in your household have very finicky …

Autumn has arrived and with it comes baking season, my friends. Literally, my favorite time of the year for two reasons: baked goods and more baked goods. Oh, the carbs! So, as you can imagine, I struggle a bit to find balance and nutrition in my Fall routine. But I have learned the hard way that the key to both my happiness and health during this …
