I have an aunt who absolutely goes nuts if you use her toothpaste and don’t roll the tube up from the bottom.
And my mom – she’s like the princess in the children’s story The Princess and the Pea when it comes to a grain of salt or sugar on her kitchen floor. She sweeps her kitchen religiously three times a day and loses it if she steps on a single grain. I have no idea how she feels them, lol.
One of my best friends will only drink coffee in a lidded reusable plastic cup, even at home. No idea what’s up with that.
I have my fair share of pet peeves/quirks too.
I detest crumbies of any kind, and along those lines I’d rather enjoy a cookie over the kitchen sink than at the kitchen table. (Yeah, I know…hello, Monica, lol.)
I like to buy my fresh herbs by the (HUGE) bunch, although it’s usually way more than what I need. But they’re much cheaper, and in my experience they stay fresher longer!
I absolutely hate wasting food, for like 1,000 different reasons.
Going back to my points above, since I buy huge bunches of fresh herbs and hate wasting food, I’m always looking for new ways to integrate them into recipes.
Enter these scones. I feel like I’ve become the scone-making-queen as of late. I don’t know why, other than the fact that they’re ridiculously easy to make, fun to eat, completely customizable, and perfect to include in a weekend brunch. They’re always polished off by the end of the meal!
Here’s the brunch that these scones were part of a while ago…I shared it on Instagram too!
This version of scones makes use of aromatic fresh dill. I also had sharp cheddar on hand, so into the mix it went, and turned out to be a great addition. I recommend serving these scones warm with butter and jam even though they’re savory, since the sweetness of jam makes a lovely contrasting flavor.
For more inspiration, here are a few fabulous-looking scone recipes from around the web that I have bookmarked:
