  1. Your scones look fantastic. I was a bit surprised/disappointed by the lack of rise in mine but I don’t know if it was me or the recipe? The flavour was really delicious though – I think it was the combination of lemon, honey and cranberries. I couldn’t stop eating them!

    Sorry About Eli but at least he’s out in the country, surrounded by some lovely ladies.


    1. Thanks so much, Catherine. We miss Eli but it is for the best. My scones didn’t raise very well, either. I thought that was due to overloading them with blueberries. No matter, I’m glad to know you love them. I do too!


  2. Your scones looked wonderful! Mine raised and then collapsed after i baked it longer….but still tasted great nonetheless. So i doubt it is your blueberries causing the problem. Why no photos of your 250 macarons? I was looking forward to admiring them. 🙂 I’m sure you must be missing Eli.. but at least we all now he is surrounded with lovely girly playmates and probably enjoying himself. I had to google what pullets! Now I know…


    1. Faithy, I did think about photos but I was overwhelmed with work. Typical of me, I started the project early then lost steam half way through. By the time I regained energy I only had a couple of days to finish them. I couldn’t think straight! At least I managed photos for the scones, a minor miracle. It’s great that you look up words, I do that all the time! I have no idea why the scones collapsed, that makes three of us who had the same problem. Oh, well. As long as they were delicious, right?


  3. The blueberry scones look super. I think a scone is the pastry that has the most variation–you never know what you’re going to get when you order one. Some are dry and tasteless, and some, especially in the U.S., are too soft and sweet. These are great.


  4. Your scones look delicious. Good to know this recipe works with fresh blueberries which I much prefer! I hope you post your mother in law’s recipe so we can see what an authentic Australian scone is. And like Faithy, I would love to see pictures of 250 macarons as I’m trying to get the courage to make a dozen.


    1. I’ll have to practice before I can make the recipe just to make sure it will work. I’ll video-tape mum-in-law one of these days and perhaps post that instead!
