Mission Statement

Culinary Adventures in a College Kitchen

Saturday, February 19, 2011


Today definitely started off right. Part of it may have to do with the fact that I slept past 9 which never happens. But really, I think I should owe it all to this delicious piece of food from breakfast heaven.

Yes, I finally made scones. Now it may not look like the type of fancy scones you get from Starbucks but I personally think these are just as good. So this morning I just slathered it with a little mixed berry jam from Aldi and microwaved it for about 20 seconds.

It's a good thing I shared these with my roommate because frankly, I could eat them all if I wanted to.

But--I won't. I'm trying to keep myself on my healthy food streak because my sorority is doing a fitness challenge. I'm not trying to lose any weight but simply tone up. And 8 scones isn't probably going to allow that to happen. Then again, does running 4 miles cancel two of them out at least??

Well, even though they are delicious I am going to have some restraint because I want to set a good example.

However, if you're feeling like diving into some scones then by all means :)

Oatmeal Scones
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 cup oats
1 large egg
10 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup skim milk (Though I substituted for Soy and it was fine)
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1/5 tbsp Nutmeg

Makes approximately 8 drop scones.
Bake at 375 for for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. Those sound delicious! I've only made scones twice which is strange considering how yummy they are. :P

  2. I have yet to attempt making scones -these look great!

  3. I need to try making scones sometime!
