You can’t go wrong with a simple basic scone recipe. I found this recipe on another YouTubers site (her site is Rhoda Stone). I took her basic recipe and transformed it into my own recipe. So below are the basic recipe that you could use and then also the other two that I created from the basic scone recipe. Comment below if you try this recipe and tell me what you think and what you created.
Basic Simple Scones:
2 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons of butter
Mix your dry ingredients together
Next cut in the butter
Add 1 beaten egg and milk to mixture
Mix all together
Next add to a lightly floured counter and roll into a ball
Cut into 8-10 triangle pieces
Place on a cookie sheet
Beat 1 more egg
Lightly brush the top of the scone with an egg wash
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes
How to change this up with a twist?
Do the same above but add 1 teaspoon almond extract to the wet ingredients
After giving he egg wash sprinkle with sugar and add slivers of almonds to the top
Bake as normal
Orange Marmalade Scones:
Do the same as the above basic scone recipe and add 1 teaspoon of orange extract to the wet ingredients.
Add 1/4 cup of orange marmalade to the wet ingredients
Also add 1/2 extra cup of flour to the dry ingredients

The Freezer and Fridge is full and yet you have nothing to eat? Let’s roll up our sleeves and clean out the freezer, pantry and fridge and see what we can come up for with meals for 2 weeks only using our bits and pieces. Money is tight, some foods are hard to find and we want to be as frugal and budget friendly as we can to help us stay on track. Also….did you know that you can get some foods sent to you via UPS with free shipping from Walmart. I have a small Walmart Haul with a few fillers.
This recipe I found in a very old missionary cookbook from Greenwood Hills camp. These recipes I usually find are full of ingredients that are very basic and things you probably have on hand. Most of the missionaries that I know never had a Super-Walmart near buy to run out and buy extras, so the ingredients are basic.
I made this recipe not knowing what this would taste like by blending an entire orange skin and all….but let me tell you, this was outstanding and delicious.
1 orange (washed, cut in four and take the seeds out)
½ cup of orange juice
½ cup of chopped dates, raisins or cranberries (my favorite are the dried cranberries)
½ cup of butter (softened)
1 ½ cups of flour
¾ cups of sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Quarter the orange and cut in half
Place orange, egg , orange juice and butter in a blender and chop and blend together rind and all
Mix in a separate bowl remaining ingredients
Mix all ingredients together and you will find the batter is very lumpy
Stir in fruit or nuts of your choice
Place in a greased muffin tin and bake at 350 for 20 minutes
Let then cool for a bit and they taste oh so good!!!
Right now we are in weird times and everyone is scrambling to find budget friendly meals, and resources for these meals as well. Many people have not had to cook so many meals at home until this virus hit us. On top of having to cook the meals we are now finding that our resources are limited for meats, rice etc. Here are two books I can recommend not only give you a budget friendly recipes but also for alternatives for when you can’t find what you need.
