Dear All, First of all I am very sorry for this unannounced break, frankly i never was on a real break but with all the work pressure and shifting to a new apartment, left me tired and exhausted at the end of the day with no energy to blog. I must say this was my first experience in shifting to a new home and its extremely tiring and painful. Most of the past days i have either taken a take away or had rice for lunch and dinner, didnt find much time to cook. Finally yesterday i got some time to make something which i have been planning to make since a long time now....Scones. This is the first time i have made scones at home and they came out quite well. They taste delicious when served them warm with a dollop of butter, perfect for tea time. Googling i found two wonderful recipes Savory cheese & Scallion scones and 5 herb eggless scones, which i have adapted to make these.
