Celebrating with scones

Fresh-baked scone, anyone?

“I loved it. It was like a peach-scone sandwich.”

– Betty Hallock, assistant food editor at the Los Angeles Times

I made these a couple of days ago to celebrate becoming a new aunt. I baked these up and brought them in to work where my Los Angeles Times colleagues ate them up.

My new niece, Sonali Krishan was born in Minneapolis, Minn., a full month premature to proud parents Sapna and Krishnan Ramaswamy. She was born early in the morning on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011.

I was so happy to hear the happy news that I wanted to celebrate and express my affection for the newest member of the family by baking something.

I decided to modify the easy recipe for peach jam scones and call the new version Sonali Scones. Want to make them yourself? Click here.

Ice cream stop

Sapna needed help packing up some stuff just before her move to Minneapolis from Albany, so Shalini and I answered her call. On Saturday we packed up her stuff, but on Sunday we got a road trip that included the charming community of Wilmington,Vermont. While we were there we had one of the best ice cream treats ever at a roadside shack called Creemee Stand. Incredible – thanks for taking us there, Sapna!

Sapna and Shalini enjoy treats from The Creamee Stand in Wilmington, Vermont.
