today i was going through my bookmarks on recipes i wanna try out. i landed on scones and lasagna. everyone loves scones, and lasagna is always good even when its bad [kind of like pizza.] i wasn’t really craving anything in particular today, but both the lasagna and scones hit the spot.
eggplant and pinenut rolled lasagna. recipe from here
sloppy picture, but you get the idea! mm mm mmm. i also added sundried tomatoes and baby spinach inside of the lasagna. it was good. it didn’t feel too heavy [especially since it was cheeseless], and i didn’t feel overly full afterwards.
scones! i think officially scones are my favorite pastry ever. they aren’t too sweet, they are more bread-like versus pastry-like, so even if you aren’t that fond of sweets/desserts/pastries, you will definitely enjoy a scone! its like a bigger and breadier cookie..but better! well in my opinion at least. the only other scone i have made was cranberry orange scones, which were delicious. the scones i made today were ginger and chocolate chip….best ever. the ginger isn’t too strong, you can just taste a hint of it…and the chocolate chips..well, no explanation on how good chocolate chips are.
ginger chocolate chip scones. recipe from here
3 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup turbinado sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
About 5 ounces chocolate
preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. mix all dry ingredients (first 7 ingredients) in big bowl.
2. when all is mixed add wet ingredients (oil + milk + vanilla extract)
3. fold in the chocolate chips, or chocolate chunks.
4. scoop with ice cream scoop [or hands like i did] and plop onto greased cookie sheet.
5. sprinkle turbinado sugar onto scones.
5. put em in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
6. EAT. [enjoy the next day for breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea…or milk…or whatever you feel like. scones are great anytime of the day/night.]
*note: step #6 is the most importanttt step! do not forget!
here they are in the oven. i love with scones you don’t have to form them into perfect balls or anything. the less shapely, the better!
PLATE-O-SCONES. mm mm mmm.
oh yeah. and other than eating a scone, some lasagna and veggies, i had a delicious simple smoothie this morning. love me some smoothiesss.

1 c soy yogurt
