Hello, I’m Cristina from I Say Nomato, and Happy Thanksgiving!

No, you’re not crazy. This coming weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving, which is almost exactly like American Thanksgiving, just without the funny hats. I don’t complain though, it just means I have an excuse to pin delicious Thanksgiving food for even longer!


And really, what is more ‘Thanksgiving’ than pumpkin? It’s so versatile. There’s the classic Pumpkin Pie, pumpkin custards, soups… and now these scones.

They’re so easy to throw together, you’ll want them every morning! Adapted from my dear friends, Rombauer, Rombauer and Becker (HA! I wish!) and the Joy of Cooking, these scones are incredibly simple. [Read more…]
