Our berry bonanza from a local blueberry farm.  These are ahh-MAZ-ing!  Blueberries are a regular feature in our kitchen throughout the year since they freeze perfectly.  Blueberry pancakes, muffins, pies, smoothies, even in salads :: blueberries and crumbled goat cheese over arugula, my fave!

I thought I should try making blueberry scones.  Actually, I’m not a big fan of scones because I don’t like the after taste of baking soda.  Then, I found this scone recipe which uses fresh blueberries, lemon juice and most importantly, no baking soda!

The perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning cup of coffee.  And no, I didn’t eat all of them… at once 😉

I substituted the milk with buttermilk which made them so light and fluffy and there is just enough sweetness from the berries and a tiny bit of sugar (I used less than a 1/4 cup of sugar).  I also didn’t bother with the glaze.

Fresh lemon juice and lemon zest enhance the flavor of the berries.  These scones got a thumbs up from Kiki so I’ll definitely be bookmarking this recipe to make again!

I’ve also got a bit of blue action happening with my crafting.  A few rows of blue thrown in on my Hitchhiker Scarf.

And some tiny half square triangles with a blue theme 🙂

    I love everything about this post: the blueberries (looks really plump and juicy), the scone recipe (never made/had them but this recipe looks super easy), the Hitchhiker with a twist, the precision sewing on the little triangles and of course Miss K (adorable as always).

    Miss you.
