Huckleberry Yogurt Scones – Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free

Huckleberry Yogurt Scones

In the year or so prior to going gluten free, my breakfasts typically subsisted of a latte and a massive blueberry or lemon curd scone.  Aside from a bowl of yogurt and fruit – it’s one of the most fulfilling breakfasts I can think of.  So after going gluten free one of my first priorities was to learn to bake scones with a new selection of flours.

My first attempt at scones (actually the first gluten free thing I ever baked) was made with 100% white rice flour. They were fluffy but incredibly gritty – not what I remembered. So I continued to experiment and by year two, I got to what my husband and I call “scookies”. These were treats that tasted like scones, had the right consistency, but flattened out like a cookie. It was year three when everything finally fell in place after my mom gifted me a cast iron mini-scone pan. Turns out, this makes all the difference for well-shaped gluten free scones.

Cracked Pepper & Bacon Deviled Eggs

Bacon Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. And I thought what do I love when I eat eggs? Bacon of course, so they seem to go hand-in-hand. With Easter being this weekend, this is a perfect recipe to serve, or to make after your kids find all those hidden Easter eggs.

I love the eggs standing up. I think they look prettier, and not so regular looking and mixes it up a bit. But it is totally up to you.

Country Apple Turnovers with Sweet Cream Icing

I love dessert. I especially love dessert that I eat at home in my cozy slippers while sitting on the couch. Especially when it is chilly outside with the sound of rain. You know what I love even more? When the delicious dessert I am eating took no time at all, but tastes like it is a delicious difficult dessert.
