Gettin' back my groove & feelin' my oats!

Rosemary/Pear Scones

Last week on Food Network I saw Giada make these savory/sweet scones and I knew I had to try them. Hers were made with strawberry jam, but I improvised with pear preserves, cause pear preserves are what I had!
Giada's were also cut with a heart shaped cookie cutter, making them a perfect Valentine's Day sweet!
Not too sweet, definitely not too savory, these are so just right!
Subtle rosemary flavor marries perfectly with the lemon glaze drizzled over the top.
Perfect with a fresh cup of morning coffee.
If they last that long.

Homemade Croutons ready to bake

I think I'm getting back my groove.
I'm back on my feet (no more walker OR cane!) and back in the kitchen, which is the BEST feeling ever!
Tonight we are having a huge salad with leftover pieces of chicken parmesan and homemade tomato soup with home baked croutons.

THIS feels so good!


Pin It!

I am glad you are getting back to cooking. The scones look pretty and delicious. Homemade croutons are the best.

What time are you having supper? I'll be there with bells on!

Your yogurt looks pretty yummy, too. Will you be having any of that for dessert? ;)

I DO want to check out that movie. I saw it advertised on TV and just have to see what it's all about. All the "food issues" are really on my mind of late and we're trying to simplify at my house, too.

Take care! See you about 6-ish???
