~ A Book Review ~

 Hi, Ya'll,
When my friend, TRACY, recently contacted me about doing a review of her
brand new Ebook,
I was just thrilled.
I, for one, LOVE Ebooks....especially Ecookbooks.
She was kind enough to send me a copy of her VOLUME 1
and the first thing I found was

BUTTERMILK SCONE FOR TWO

How romantic is THAT.?
Just the word  SCONE  is romantic......
and the thought of TWO HEARTS sharing ONE SCONE made me hear violins playing ♫♪♪
 YOU  ARE  GONNA  LOVE  THIS  ONE.......
....not only does it TASTE luscious,
it LOOKS luscious.
While this recipe called for CURRENTS, I decided to use CRANBERRIES.
I also used IDEAL sugar substitute instead of SUGAR
and, I promise you, you can not tell the difference.
I followed everything else as in the original recipe.
So pretty, I decided to have an
Early Morning Lawn Party....
for two....♥ ♥ ♥

 ...a table for two,
if you please.


 ♫♫♪♪♫
 ♪♫♪
 Truly a SCONE worth writing home about.






If you are interested in bed and breakfast recipes,
( and, pray tell, who ISN'T)

You can meet the editor HERE.

I am looking forward to trying more recipes out of  
YUMMY B&B RECIPES.
I know for sure that this first try was TOTAL success.
As I try more recipes, I'll be back to tell you all about it !!
and PLEASE...
if you buy the ebook and make some of the recipes, would you
kindly share with us ?
Thanks...
XOXO bj
(and kindly notice that I was able to add to my pledge of

If I cooked as much as you and ate everything I cooked, I'd weight 500 pounds, sugar!! LOL

Yum....I love scones. And your setting looks so pretty and patriotic!

Ralph said...

The early morn makes us hungry, and since the heat of the day is not quite there yet, a backyard breakfast is amazing, starting with that stylish candelabra and finishing with those wonderful scones (and a stout coffee too). A great day is now just ahead of us!

Kathleen Grace said...

Yum, those look wonderful!

NanaDiana said...

I can't think of a better person to do a post about a breakfast cookbook recipe than you! You are just amazing- xo Diana

Kathe said...

Oh oh! Mr. B loves scones and these look yummy! Thanks for sharing at the party this week!

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Scones are on of my favorite things with my coffee. Cranberries added to it sounds awesome. Happy 4th!

kitty said...

Oh dear me, BJ, I LOVE a good scone and those look wonderful. Your setting is so pretty, too. I love the little ladder in the background with the plant on it.

Linda Chapman said...

I love scones and I love this post! I love ALL of your posts!

Now......I want to ask you something. Do you know your neighbors across the fence very well? Because if I were your neighbor - and could hear you out there having an early morning lawn party.....you can bet your bottom dollar I would be peeking over that fence hoping for an invite!!

Liz said...

That scone looks so delicious!

A scone for two is perfect for not overdoing it. Only you can make a scone for two an EVENT. Love it and I'll try it and I'll switch to cranberries or blueberries, too.

Soooooo cute.

'Course, I have a nasty one, just waiting for me to use it. >;-) But! "Catch more flies with honey, than with vinegar!" ,-)

HAPPY FULL THUNDER MOON, July 3rd.!!!

Tracy | Screaming Sardine said...

Hi, BJ -

thanks so much for the review! I've been watching my fat intake, but after reading your post, I'll have to make the buttermilk scone recipe for sure!

As usual, you make such an inviting table setting. I hope you and your great family have a fantastic 4th of July!

Hugs,
Tracy

Looks delicious! I love a good scone.

Athena at Minerva's Garden said...

What a beautiful lawn party--loved the photos, and I love scones as well. Take care, and happy 4th!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I just love a good scone. This big baby that says it is for 2...I'd probably eat the entire thing myself! It looks delicious. Isn't it fun to see our friends have successes?? Great review.
Happy 4th!

Audrey said...
