rosemary tomato scone

Ever had a savory scone? I hadn’t…until my sister brought over these tomato rosemary scones for Easter brunch.  I love scones, they’re probably my most favorite bakery food and I would choose a scone over a donut or a bagel any day.

{recipe} Roasted Herb Potatoes

October 11, 2012
