Today marks my 20th post for Vegan MoFo. I have met my goal to post 20 blogs during the month of October. If you are lucky, you might even get more than 20 posts. I think you could be lucky.
I have been cooking and reading other MoFo blogs this whole month. I have been listening to vlogs, drooling over gluten free and glutenous confections, dreaming about savory entrees and sides, and enjoying all of the pumpkin and Halloween themes. This has been a highlight of my day each day. It is a nice way to escape.
In talking about MoFo so much, I must have inspired John because he decided that he wanted to contribute. He found a gluten free scone recipe, purchased the ingredients, and made me chocolate cinnamon scones. I am very grateful for his delicious contribution. John and I share meal preparation, but I tend to do the baking and making of sweets. So, it was a nice surprise when John showed an interested in trying baking. Since knowing him, I can only think of one other occasion that he baked something.
Let me say, I think he has talent (and yes, this is an attempt to get him to bake more!). He knows how much I love scones and how I miss them in my life. There is something about a scone that makes it so much more appealing to me than other confections. I think part of it has to do with our study abroad adventure in Scotland during our undergraduate years. One of my favorite memories, is sitting in a cafe in Stirling, Scotland enjoying a scone and a cup of tea.
The recipe is not ours to share, but I can tell you that it included soy yogurt, gluten free flour blend, chocolate chips, and cinnamon. I can also tell you that it is just as good, if not better, than any scone I remember from previous years. A big thank you to John-I cannot wait to see what else you bake! ;-)
