    Wow, these scones look simply divine! I often snack on pieces of dried cherries and dark chocolate squares. Putting them in a scone is genius! I must make them right away. Congrats on your radio interview with Morning Living. That is so cool! :)

    Congratulations, how exciting! I’m definetly going to try to listen in! These scones sound great too – and of course, just about anything is better with ice cream. My husband has a particular fondness for blue bell homemade vanilla – he was so very dissapointed when we moved from Texas to Indiana and found out they didn’t have blue bell here. After being here for 5 years, blue bell finally started showing up in a few stores here this summer, he was elated!

    Amy Reply:

    @Ashlie, My hubby is a vanilla ice cream man, too. His first choice is homemade…but if I don’t have time to make a batch he picks up Blue Bell, Haggen Daas, or Ben & Jerrys. Sometimes Bryers.

    Congrats on your radio interview! I notice you use palm sugar in a lot of your recipes. I finally broke down and looked it up and was surprised to find it has a lower glycemic index than the agave syrup I’ve been using. I’ll have to make the switch!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Samantha Conklin, You’ll love palm sugar. If you can’t find it locally you can order it from iHerb.com – I have a discount code that will get you $5 off your first order so you’d just have to pay a few bucks for shipping – it’s SIR086.

    Hugs!

    Amy Reply:

    @Mary M, I get unsweetened carob chips in bulk at Whole Foods. :) They’re not certified gluten-free but they work for me. If you need something certified, you would probably go for a packaged chip. Check Sprouts or Whole Foods.

I have looked at your basic flour blends and need some advice on one basic blend that I can make for baking cookies and these scones. I don’t bake much bread.

I love the ingredients I will definitely try them. I make my own kefir with goats milk can I use my kefir instead of the buttermilk in the scones?
    Also could you add my name to the drawing for the everyday good food magazine please. I am also interested in making bread and wondered if you have tried making a sourdough starter GF. I want to use my kefir but not sure how. I am pretty sure my digestion problems have been due to wheat intolerence. Thank you so much.
