Current Obsessions

It's getting bad around here. 
All I want to make is soups and scones. Seriously. Maybe I should move to Scotland? 
I suppose there could be worse things to be obsessed with...(If I had any knowledge of current pop culture I'd list a few examples here, but I'm woefully out of touch.)

Instead, I'll share a few of the recipes that have been made around here lately:

Bacon-Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder It's touted as a low-carb alternative to potato soup, but I'm not really into trying to make substitutions like that. It's cauliflower, people, not potatoes. But it was good! 
Weekend Beef Barley Stew Again with the barley...I didn't follow this one exactly but it was delicious and just what we needed on a yucky, drizzly Friday night. 
Best Cream of Broccoli Soup That about sums it up.
My mom actually made those first three scone recipes when she was here after I had Jill. She just mixed them up, shaped them, and put them in the freezer unbaked. Then when we needed a breakfast treat I just baked them as the recipe said but added a few minutes. Worked perfectly!


Oatmeal Raspberry Scones Not the best pic, but it will do. I also added white chocolate chips, just because.

I've also got at least a dozen other scone recipes on my Pinterest board that I'm dying to try.
What are your current obsessions??

  1. haha, I'm so out of touch with pop culture, it is ridiculous. But if most of my friends can be so out of touch with quilt-culture that they don't know what I'm talking about when I mention designers/fabrics/patterns and not be embarassed, I'm not going to be bothered that I don't get their references :)

    yum, these all sound delicous! I recently tried pumpkin scones, and I found a recipe for homemade pumpkin lattes that I want to try out. So I guess 'pumpkin' is a theme around here :)

  2. I am so trying that cauliflower recipe! Do your kids eat soup?? Only one of mine does, which is sad because I love to make (and eat!) homemade soup. And if you like scones, please do yourself a favor and try Sara Foster's scones (http://www.amazon.com/The-Fosters-Market-Cookbook-ebook/dp/B0053CT254/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1351126403&sr=8-8&keywords=sara+foster+cookbooks). They are made with buttermilk and will make your knees buckle...

  14. Hi, Toni. I have been under the weather and overly busy. Just getting caught up on blogs. Since it cooled off again today in our neck of the woods I thought you might be interested in soups again. In September Karen - at my request - had a soup recipe linking party. Thought you might enjoy some of the recipes.
