If you love scones that are on the sweet side, verging on muffin territory, you will love my new blueberry scone recipe. Easy easy easy to make and you probably have everything on hand!
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
1 tbs baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 stick (½ cup) cold butter, cut into cubes
½ cup whole milk
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen, towel dried
A couple tablespoons Turbinado or raw sugar, for topping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Using a stand mixer (my preference) or a hand mixer, stir dry ingredients together slowly. Add butter cubes. Mixture should turn into a crumbly type of mix. Add the milk, then the egg. The batter will be thick. Add the blueberries and gently fold into batter.
Flour your work surface. I like to use a piece of parchment paper with light flour on top. Make sure you flour your hands! Put dough on the work surface and press dough down. You can make your scones as rustic/free form as you like, but I prefer to make a large rectangle, about 1.5 inches thick. I cut the rectangle into 4 quadrants and then into triangles from there.
Place on a cookie sheet, top with your desired amount of raw sugar, and bake for 20 minutes.
Hope you enjoy!
A couple things to note about this recipe!
- You can really make it your own by adding whatever dry ingredients and/or candy you want. Some suggestions: bagel chips, almonds or other nuts, raisins, Reese’s Pieces, butterscotch chips, cheez-its, etc.
- The seasoning measurements below provide a pretty light flavor. If you like extreme flavor, be sure to ramp it up!

10 cups of dry ingredients, I used:
- 3 cups rice cereal squares
- 3 cups corn cereal squares
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
- 3 cups pretzels
½ cup apple cider
½ cup butter
½ cup coconut oil
⅓ cup worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp garlic powder

Turn your slow cooker on high.
Add all your dry ingredients, butter, and coconut oil.
Stir to cover all the pieces.
Add seasonings and all other ingredients.
Stir again to ensure all pieces have been covered.
Cook in slow cooker for 3 hours, stirring at least once or twice during that time.
Spread the mixture out on parchment paper or baking sheet.
Heat oven to 350° F. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
Pour all of the chex mix in a gallon size ziploc and add your candy.
Shake and enjoy! 🙂
Pumpkin bread is universally loved, right? I’m pretty sure people who don’t typically like pumpkin things still like pumpkin bread. So let’s skip the argument about baking this and just get to it!

It’s what I like to call Onion Candy, but others may call them Caramelized Onions. It resembles nothing like the sweet onion it came from. It’s been slowly and lowly cooked in butter and balsamic glaze.
I’m standing over my kitchen sink with a 10″ frying pan in my left hand and a spoon in my right hand. Well, at least 60 seconds ago I was. I realized what I was doing and decided to take a second to collect my thoughts before SLAPPIN’ MY MAMA. Keep on Reading!
The donuts. If I didn’t provide you with any other reason, go for the donuts. If you’re any where near central Virginia, you must make a Saturday morning trip to the South of the James Farmers Market.

We have recently decided to follow a grocery budget, so both Aldi and Lidl have become my best friends. I’m a longtime lover of all things Aldi and I’ve got some serious opinions. Do you shop at Aldi and/or Lidl? Okay, do you at least buy your staples there? They are popping up all over the country! The prices and quality are top notch. So if you’re not, I can’t recommend it enough. Keep on Reading!
