A LIttle Baking

Yesterday afternoon I decided to try out a recipe from my new cookbook.  Ordinarily, a cookbook like this wouldn't appeal to me.  I think a lot of "health" food misses the mark tastewise and I don't see a reason to waste my time and calories on food that doesn't taste good.  (Also, it seems to me that a lot of "health" recipes use a bunch of weird vegetables that I've never seen before.  I don't trust weird vegetables - they taste funny.  Yes, I am three years old.)  After reading the reviews on this book, I decided to take a chance on it - it looked like it was worth a try.  After flipping through it, I found a bunch of things that looked good and most of them are things Caleb will even eat.
These are the Fresh Fruit Scones, fresh from the oven.  They would have looked more interesting in the photo if I had used blackberries, but I used an apple for my fruit because that's what was sitting here.  A lot of thought goes into my cooking.  I also added a little cinnamon to the recipe, because it would be wrong to make an apple scone without cinnamon.  I try not to be wrong.  The finished scones are great.  Not too sweet, but not too little either.  There are a bunch of other recipes I want to try, not just baked goods, but if they're all as good as this one, I'm happy to have this cookbook.

Just a note, if you're on a low carb diet, this probably isn't the cookbook for you.  Runners need carbs, and while the recipes stick to the more complex carbs, they are in here.  Personally, I love the carbs.  I love complex carbs; I love simple carbs; I love fun carbs; I even love carbs that are moody and mysterious.  That's one of the reasons I run.

Yum...looks delicious, but it looks more like a pie than a scone. Either way it looks great. I am in agreement with you about healthy baked goods. If it is good for a person but lacks in taste, what's the point.
