Cinnamon Chip Scones

Many of you have probably been wondering what would be my first post on my re-branded blog.  🙂  I honestly didn’t need to think too hard about it, because I knew right away that I wanted to resurface a favorite recipe that needed some updating.  Years ago, I developed this scone recipe and realized that […]
