I still can't believe that school has been back in session for over a month now! Even though there is no assigned homework yet ( and believe me, we are enjoying that while it lasts!), I know that it's important to keep the learning going during non-school hours too.

The rest of the week has been a blur Read more [...]
I originally posted this recipe in September 2012 and I've been making it regularly ever since! To save some time in the morning, I made the dough last night and baked the scones this morning and they were the best I've ever had, so I've updated the recipe to include this step.
