Ultimate Recipe Swap [4]

I’m not sure if it’s the school teacher genes in my DNA [5] or what, but I get kinda giddy about color coding. [6] Primary colors make me smile. I’ve even owned a snowman-embroidered cardigan in my time. And planning food to match a holiday? I’m all over that.

How can you celebrate the Fourth of July without some red, white, and blue food? Seriously.

Longtime readers will remember the Red, White, and Blue Cake Pop fiasco [7]of last year. Yes, well. Let’s say it was one of my more ambitious, though ill-conceived, moments.

This Independence Day, I’m still relishing in the color scheme, but this year, I think we have a winner.

Red, White, and Blue Scones


Oh my! These were good. And they were incredibly freezer-friendly. And they were also incredibly fattening. But, oh my! These were good. Talk about Old Glory!

This recipe makes a huge quantity of scones that will just melt in your mouth. Bake them and enjoy right away. Bake and freeze. Or, mix and form the batter and then flash freeze them for instant morning happiness.
