    Those flowers are still looking good? Wow – awesome! Thank you again for holding our brunch at your home – it was lovely and you put a lot of work and care into it! I’m really digging all of your baked goods. These scones were yummy as well – my heart was just sold on those crumble bars. :) I loved how your scones looked like SCONES (mine didn’t!) and they were the perfect blend of sweetness. Also a great jam delivery device. :)

    @Alta, I can’t wait until we get together again…it was a great group of women. And, yes, the flowers still look great.

    BTW – my friend checked out your pesto chicken salad recipe and is going to make it soon. She loves it – and so did I.

    These are gorgeous!
    It must be a blueberry lemon day, I just made (and posted) blueberry lemon (and ginger) granola! :D

    What a beautiful brunch, wish I was there!

    Thanks so much for the mention, Amy! I love that you were inspired and hosted a brunch gathering! Everything looks so amazingly delicious and gorgeous. The pink roses are just perfect. LOL on the multiple goodies you made along with the refreshing beverage. I’m the same way. ;-) And, there’s nothing like getting together with dear friends who look after you and your intolerances, is there? It’s such a gift I think. :-)

    Oh, I’m so envious–that sounds like such a fabulous get-together! And all four of your baked goods are gorgeous. I am sure I’d love those scones!

    How lovely! There is just something freeing about sitting down to eat knowing that everything is safe and you won’t have to explain yourself if you don’t eat an item!!

    Oh good gracious girl! You took the bakery to the table! Of course, the table setting is perfect as well. Scalloped linens and all. :)

    I remember eating scones before going GF. And I really liked them with honey and butter. Kind of weird maybe. But I liked these even better than muffins. (Maybe because I was never a fan of muffin bottoms.) Yours look simply gorgeous–all brown on top. Scones for breakfast tomorrow???

    And you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned how it feels to eat a wonderful meal and not have to worry about what you can eat, the parts you can’t, offending someone, spending money on food left on the plate, etc., etc. It really feels simply…blissful.

    *Okay* now I am hungry but I have to do my yoga first…arrrrh!

    Oh to live in Dallas!!! What fun ladies! And wow, such an array of tasty looking food. I can’t decide which of the 4 baked goods looks the best – I’d be happy to try them all :)

    Amy, you set a beautiful table. That was the first thing that got to me. It is truly fit for a king.

    Each food item sounds delicious. What a nice gathering you had. Foodies are a special breed, simply the nicest and you are here to prove it.

    I really enjoy your blog, thank you! Do you have Katie’s recipe for mayonnaise?


    Amy Reply:

    No but I can post a homemade mayo recipe sometime soon – it’s so easy. :)

    What a wonderful idea, to be able to eat everything that’s served — and you had such a selection, too!

    The scones were the biggest hit ever for our Christmas morning spread. I made the original Blueberry-Lemon and also made Cranberry-Orange!!!

    Oh – YUM! What a fabulous gluten free tea luncheon – and how I wish I was traveling in your circles with such perfected skills in GF baking! I’m a novice and love to experiment and, lately, a big fish in a little pond since I have been introducing many of my acquaintance to this healthier way of eating. My kitchen disasters of “so-so” achievements seem to go over well – but they have nothing like this menu to show them how poor I really am! Looking forward to trying the scones – always looking for my GF treat for afternoon tea . . .

    @Kathryn Ross, Enjoy, Kathy! I love these scones.

    did I miss how to do this dairy-free? I don’t know what mimic cream is.


    Amy Reply:

    @RuthAnn, It’s a nut-based heavy cream substitute. You can find it in shelf-stable aseptic packaging at health food stores.
