What. a. week! Welcome back, Friday!

Man! I feel like ah … bear waking up from hibernation(?)

Being stuck at home for several days definitely has its ups – sleeping-in because the entire State is shut down, chillin’ in your PJs until noon, catching up on your favorite shows, etc…

But, of course with those ups come the downs. Or, in fact, it was just one down – boredom. And with that boredom, the inevitable happens – eating everything in sight because I am bored.

I chose not to be bored, and not to eat because I was bored. Instead, I baked and baked and baked… and made the others eat! I made double chocolate pancakes, blueberry scones, soda bread, pasta from scratch, and bacon-wrapped everything. I hope I get that wife and mom of the year award

Hubs and Snow Diethood Blueberry Scones + Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Look at the Hubs! HA!

I was watching my husband from inside while he was cleaning the snow. He was freezing out there. The snow was coming down really hard, but besides that, it was somewhere around -15 degrees while he was doing his snow-cleaning duty. We thought the temps were bad, but that night, the temperatures reached -45! Alaska was warmer than Indiana. WHAT?! Yeah, yeah it was!

Two days later the temps moved up to 5 degrees and I went out there in shorts, cleaning the driveway again like it ain’t no thang!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Diethood Blueberry Scones + Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

While we were stuck inside, listening to each other’s thoughts, we were also dipping these amazing scones in an awesome blueberry cream cheese frosting. This stuff is da bomb! I mean, it’s so simple and sweet, you’ll want to dig in with a spoon. We did. Of course.

You know what else is great about this recipe? It’s a weekend recipe. It’s a Saturday & Sunday morning recipe. Think about it, who doesn’t want to wake up to homemade scones on the weekend? Exactly.

After inhaling the scones, I found myself making another batch of the frosting… I also hid it from the rest of the fam. I kinda ate it, all by myself. Thank the LAWWWD that the scale and I are not on speaking terms. I’m mad at her… always lying to me with her numbers-game. Ain’t nobody got time for liars.  Blueberry Scones Diethood Recipe Blueberry Scones + Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

You don’t have to believe me, BUT you should – once you get a taste of these scones, you will jump for joy when it’s time to make breakfast on the weekends!

ENJOY!

    These scones look delicious I am going to give it a try can you please post some orange scone without raisins if you have or any other so I could try always trying to make something different for cravings in the noon time.

    OMG so much snow. We’re in the same country and we’re having different weather. CA is having drought issue this year… no rain nothing. No snow in the mountain…no ski trip… and it’s like mid 60F. It’s true, some winter days in SF can be warmer than some days in the summer! Anyway, what I love about these scones is that you made blue cream cheese frosting! I’ve never done it before. And I just got this blueberry which cost close to $10! I’m going to use it and make this. You made me totally inspired to bake (and it’s rare!). :)

    These look beautiful. The husband is always in charge of the snow. I am sure to have something good in the oven though for when he comes back. It is a win win.

    Burr! I almost feel guilty about the gorgeous weather we’ve been having in California. I’m such a wimp..I’d be wearing three layers of clothing if I was there :) These look absolutely fabulous and that cream cheese dip is amazing!

    I’m in the suburbs of Chicago, so I feel your pain with the cold, but it looks like you put your time to good use. This recipe looks so delicious! I love a good blueberry scone, and these look wonderful! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Stunning, absolutely stunning the white white white landscape… well, the white everything! Husband is adorable! And I am so making these scones, even if I only have dried blueberries. We love scones but for some reason the blueberries always get used for muffins. I prefer these perfect scones!

    These look so yummy… indeed a keeper… I hate it when it snows.. specially when it keeps you locked inside for days with 3 boys jumping everywhere :). Thanks for the recipe.

    Oh man, look at that snow! And these scones – gorgeous! I could wake up to these every single morning!

    I am not sure I have ever seen such gorgeous scones before!

    You deserve the mother of the year award for these gorgeous looking scones. No frosting necessary though. :)

    I am hating on the snow as well. All done now, I want it to go away. I had to wait 3 days for my snow guy to come (mechanical difficulties) and dig me out. The alley is still scary and I haven’t tried driving in it yet.

    For pics … check out the post.

    Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love scones. I don’t have the snow issue you guys do, but it is pour rain right now, a cold, nasty rain. These would be perfect. And that frosting. Oh my gosh, it sounds so, so good. I don’t blame you for hiding the second batch from everyone!

  18. Laura Dembowski January 10, 2014 at 7:41 AM - Reply

    YES! Scones totally need the pizzazz of frosting! Of course anytime frosting is breakfast appropriate, I’m in :)
