Best wishes for a less exciting life for a while! Glad you were able to make these — they were really good, weren’t they?

These look great!!! So flaky and good looking

My first time here and I must say everything looks so incredibly YUMMY! I love savoury stuff and just the sound of that title made me go *yay*! Then the photos…OMG I want at least a dozen of these. May I? Pretty please?

Your dogs are the CUTEST! I know that feeling of driving back and forth to doggie daycare! I have a 15 month old Australian Shepherd that can’t just stay anywhere! haha! Your scones look fantastic!

Amy P said in July 1st, 2008 at 9:42 am

Your scones look great. I don’t know how you found the time with life and all getting in the way. I know who to contact if I have some printing to do;)

April B said in July 1st, 2008 at 10:27 am

Man, you are one busy woman, I can’t believe you had the time/energy to make the scones and the danish. Your pictures look so good, they really captured the texture of the scone.

If salad cancels out butter, I’ve got to go buy some more lettuce–now! I hope life settles down for you soon. Great job getting all that baking done in the middle of everything else going on.

Erin said in July 1st, 2008 at 11:38 am

I don’t mean to make comedy of your hardships, but your Star Wars metaphor had me rolling. Oh how true the old adage is about anything that can go wrong. I’m glad your doggies found a happy place to be while you were away. Your scones look mahvelous! I’m also smitten with your rye bread and your passion fruit braid. All this fab baking is such a great outlet, eh?

kim said in July 1st, 2008 at 12:34 pm

you have been a busy bee! glad you liked the scones so much, yours look really good. adorable pups too 🙂

Anne said in July 1st, 2008 at 12:40 pm

Wow, sounds like you’ve had a crazy time- your scones look perfect though!

Susan said in July 1st, 2008 at 1:06 pm

So flaky and gorgeous! Nice job!

Heather said in July 1st, 2008 at 1:10 pm

They were lovely weren’t they? We loved the scones too…as for butter…well I think I am keeping the local specialty food store in business over here!

Our 4 year-old son is lactose intolerant so I have the extra challenge of finding butter and cream substitutes to enjoy TWD. But it is most certainly worth it…it’s just such fun!!!

Hope everything settles down…

Mara said in July 1st, 2008 at 1:21 pm

your pups are so cute..!! and man did your scones come out super sized, i love em!

What you need are some of these scones and a month of ‘uneventful’ days ;))
What a whirlwind of a post and month.
I’ll have to try the scones. Love butter in the freezer!
I think you are super woman today!!

Steph said in July 1st, 2008 at 1:57 pm

Your scones look so flaky and nicely browned!! Next time I’m going to try using the food processor like you did.

Laura said in July 1st, 2008 at 2:28 pm

wonderful pics. they look so moist!

Caitlin said in July 1st, 2008 at 2:41 pm

Wow, what a whirlwind couple of weeks! Your scones look like they were unaffected – beautiful!

Kayte said in July 1st, 2008 at 2:50 pm

Okay, I am officially exhausted just thinking about this post…LOL. And, I didn’t even participate in any of it. I can’t believe that you found time to cook and post through all of that…some sort of reward should be in the offing, don’t you think? Maybe the scones were the reward! They were that good…yes, they were. Your scones look wonderful…very light and melty looking, just beautiful.

Nancy said in July 1st, 2008 at 2:55 pm

Your scones look terrific! You have had quite a couple of weeks!

JacqueOH said in July 1st, 2008 at 5:04 pm

I agree… they’re delish. I keep grabbing a bite of one thinking “oh, just one bite”. Which turns into one more and one more and next thing I know my scone is gone.

Aaaanyway, great job getting through this challenge. I am tired just reading about your life. Congrats on the new rocketship, er, printer!

Pamela said in July 1st, 2008 at 5:12 pm

Whew…I’m exhausted just reading your post! You have been through and accomplished so much. Put your feet up and enjoy the rest of those scones. :0)

Erin said in July 1st, 2008 at 7:31 pm

These scones look great! I hope everything calms down 🙂

Fran Z said in July 1st, 2008 at 8:09 pm

Oh these look so good! I hope your knee is ok and not crunked up enough to need surgical intervention!

Colleen said in July 1st, 2008 at 8:35 pm

Your scones look great! Your pups are adorable! I totally understand where you are coming from 🙂

Christine said in July 1st, 2008 at 9:28 pm

Even though it has been very crazy welcome back! Your posts were missed and your scones look great!

Heather B said in July 1st, 2008 at 10:28 pm

I totally understand about the doggie situation. My Charlie is my baby and I wouldn’t just entrust him to anyone! Your scones look great!

rowena said in July 2nd, 2008 at 1:57 am

Ohhh…if I were your neighbor….

I would have loved to care for the dogs, weed your garden, and help you clean out the storage unit. And then I would eat all of your scones!

Cat said in July 2nd, 2008 at 2:08 am

It was a pleasure reading your TWD apple cheddar blog this evening. I too, used frozen cheddar.

Your doggies are precious! Glad everything worked out for you. I’ll be leaving my Siamese for 4 days and he’ll go crazy without us. My son will be sleeping here to care for him and our other animals.

LyB said in July 2nd, 2008 at 8:59 am

You do tell a good story! And you made me laugh with “the Mother of All Printers”! I loved these scones as well, I think your husband found the perfect name for them. 🙂

Mari said in July 2nd, 2008 at 11:04 am

Oh goodness gracious, these sound yum!!! Can’t wait to make mine for dins tonite!

Susan at Sticky,Gooey,Creamy,Chewy said in July 2nd, 2008 at 11:09 am

OMG! sounds like you really needed that vacation (and maybe another one too)! I’m glad you were able to make the scones. They look lovely and I know how delicious they are! Now, go put your feet up!

Michelle from Baken said in July 2nd, 2008 at 12:12 pm

Wow, I thought my life was hectic right now! You are a super woman, I hope you’re proud of all you have accomplished over the past month. I don’t know when you managed to sleep. Your scones look so good, too!

Amy from South in Your Mouth said in July 2nd, 2008 at 5:38 pm

Wow, your scones look amazing!

Sharon said in July 2nd, 2008 at 7:30 pm

Loved the scones…your vacation sounds as busy as mine. Thankfully my husband was still at home to handle the dog issues the first week. (he joined us for the second week)

Rebecca said in July 2nd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

Now THAT’S a printer. Wish I’d thought to sub the juice with half-and-half. I just used water, which added nothing. Good idea!

Lynne said in July 3rd, 2008 at 6:50 am

Wow, you have had a time of it, but your scones pass with flying colors. Great job.

Shari said in July 3rd, 2008 at 11:38 am

Wow, you’ve been busy! You even managed to squeeze in a Danish bread – that’s impressive! Your scones look delicious!

Holy smokes! Perhaps you need a little time off. Nice scones!

Dolores said in July 3rd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

Sounds like high time for an at-home vacation. Glad you enjoyed this week’s scones…yours look luscious.

Isa said in July 3rd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

Oh, Dorie… she’s always there to cheer you up with scones or something, isn’t she?
Glad you like the scones and a little sad about not making them after such reviews…
I hope you get to rest this long weekend.
*thanks for your comment on my blog

Vera said in July 4th, 2008 at 12:15 pm

Stressful days usually followed by the relaxing and happy ones.
The scones look wonderful! I’m sure they taste delicious.

Joe said in July 4th, 2008 at 7:57 pm

Those savory/sweet scones look amazing!
