For those of you who have read my site, thank you Carla, Linda, Cayley, Darlene and Helen, you may know that my inspiration for starting Garden, Home and Party was the compliment and prompting by Son #1 and the ongoing encouragement of Son #2 and hubby.
Best Scones recipe HERE
That said, it’s been so much fun writing about the decor of various rooms in the house (any house), the maintenance and planting of my garden and the entertaining aspect—preparing recipes and setting tables, that I guess I’ve not posted as much about cooking/recipes as I thought I would.
So it was with some interest when Son #2 commented on a recent post that he thought I should blog more recipes. It could be a ‘guy’ thing. Food is infinitely more interesting to the men in my life than the decor of our home, or any home for that matter. Since I take terrible food pictures he suggested that: a) I work on my food photography and b) link to recipes that I’ve found and tried from other sites.
So here goes:
One of my favorite sites for delicious and sometimes easy recipes is Pioneer Woman. The other day she had a recipe called Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Basil Pasta. We had a dear friend over last evening for dinner and I prepared this recipe. It was a hit and very easy. I prepared warm baguette with butter and a spinach salad for the sides. Hubby grilled the chicken and the pasta came together easy-peasy. Please click on the link below to view the incredible pictures of each and every step of the recipe. You will love this site and I’m sure you will enjoy this recipe.

Well I can see why he would want more recipes like your scone recipe. This is the same recipe I was given by a dear friend about 15 years ago and it truly is the MOST delicious scone recipe ever! I have made many converts with this recipe who previously insisted they didn’t like scones. Of course they were thinking of the the dry and crumbly versions. The texture of these scones is smooth light and amazing! So you have my attention…I’m with your son…more recipes, please.

Reading this made my mouth water! I want to make the scones again — and soon! The photos are wonderful! The whole blog takes me back to Disneyland days!

I really much start using some of the Pioneer Woman recipes. You make them sound so wonderful. What a great resource!
