Sunday was my first Mother’s Day and I must say, it was pretty much the one of the best days – ever. Eric has a way of going above and beyond, and truly has the ability of making every day seem special. So it’s no surprise that holidays with him are perfection.
My day started out with a frosted doughnut and iced vanilla coffee from Dunkin’ Doughnuts and ended with a hibachi dinner with my fam and a crunch coat ice cream cone for dessert. I’m telling you – this guy gets me.
After breakfast, I opened my gifts from Elle and Eric. Word on the street is that I am incredibly difficult to buy for; however, somehow Eric is able to wow me time after time with the most thoughtful and unique gifts.
If you read MBA on a regular basis, you may know that Elle’s nickname is Bird, or Birdie, or Baby Bird. So he scoured Etsy and found an adorable bird nest with three engraved eggs for my desk. And as though that wasn’t cute enough, he purchased a “Mom’s Recipe for Love” subway sign for the kitchen. And he even hung it the same day! He’s a keeper, I tell ya.
But honestly, no “perfect” day would be complete without some time in the kitchen, baking up something I love. I know it’s not for everyone – on Mother’s Day, some moms want nothing to do with the kitchen, and that’s okay. But this mom truly finds bliss in mixing up a few simple ingredients to become some light and fluffy, ethereal baked good. I never claimed to be sane.
You guys know that I love a good scone. If I have my choice between a scone and a doughnut (even a frosted one from Dunkin’), I’ll gladly get down with the scone any day of the week.
I’ve been making the same scone base for years because to me, it’s perfect. One of my favorite things about scones is that they’re super customizable. From Glazed Orange Scones and Bacon and Cheddar Scones to these Lemon Blueberry Scones – I’m pretty confidant that you can create a scone with just about anything in your fridge.
Sweet or savory, scones are something you can eat for breakfast, snack with tea, or as dessert at the end of the day. Blueberries are starting to pop up here and there at the market, and I just can’t refuse a fresh spring berry. Blueberries and lemon are pretty much one of the happiest marriages in baking land, and combined in a scone they are completely irresistible!
These blueberry scones are a way to show Mom or Dad, Boyfriend or Girlfriend, Wife or Husband, just how much you care. Sure, Mother’s Day is one day a year. But I prefer to show my love through food even on the random Tuesdays. And that’s what these scones are about. You just have to make them!
