Wild Blueberries

Blueberry + Chocolate Chip Scone

Jeez! I wanted to take the holiday weekend off from blogging about food and almost 2 weeks has past. Time flies I suppose. Good news for you is that I've been cooking + baking during my brief hiatus. Today I bring you some baking.

Trying to save some bucks I've been making us breakfast on the weekends and extra baked goods for Peter to eat during the week before work. I'm not a big fruit eater and if I'm going to eat fruit, especially berries, they almost always are frozen. I've been really enjoying some frozen Wild Blueberries I bought at Whole Foods a few weeks ago. Good news for me I spotted them at Costco's so I'm sure the bag there is twice the size for the same price.

Above is the basic scone recipe from VwaV which I added blueberries and chocolate chips too, yes we eat chocolate for breakfast! I cannot recommend that combination enough. Peter loved them. I just liked them but enough to make them again. They were very biscuity and not too sconey for me. I'm now on a hunt in my apartment for a scone recipe I used in a restaurant I baked for.

Blueberry Corn Muffins

Another VwaV recipe. I believe they are called "Sunny" or something like that because of the lemon used in it. The book isn't readily available for me to confirm the name. I'm sure you all have the book. If not, buy it. We LOVE these muffins. A blueberry and corn muffin all in one with a lovely lemon zest flavor added. I prefer these warm, split in the middle with some Earth Balance spread on them. Peter eats them as is.

the scones look great, but I've got a major craving for one of the muffins now.

I've been growing a little tired of muffins lately . . . but scones! I had kind of forgotten about scones! Thanks for the idea. :)

Wow, both of those things look really yummy! Blueberry and chocolate is a flavour combo I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure I MUST.

Mmm, muffins! I need to make those. I still haven't had a scone, but they keep being described to me as biscuit-like.
