Chocolate Strawberry Scones

Chocolate strawberry scones made with whole wheat, Greek yogurt and chocolate chunks. They are perfect with a cup of tea.

Happy Monday friends! I hope the New Year is going great so far and you are still pumped about all the possibilities 2016 holds. Things are a bit hectic on my side as I try to finish up experiments and prepare for a meeting early next month. It’s going to be beyond hectic with finishing my Ph.D., applying for a job and hopefully getting said job and potentially moving all in the span of months. When I think of it, I just want to crawl up on my couch with a blanket and a warm scone with tea. It brings comfort to the idea of just how much I have to do and how much life is about to change. Exciting changes yet still scary. But in those few minutes when I am enjoying a scone, I forget all about it and relax/recharge. These chocolate strawberry scones came to the rescue last week; they are simple, hearty and delicious (warm) with a cup of tea.

Given all this chaos, I will be a little scarce around here. I’ll still be baking (because I just can’t stop myself, especially when I am stressed it helps me) and will pop in once or twice a week to check in with you guys … and bring you some new recipes of course. But forgive me if I am slow to respond to your comments or come say hi on your blogs.

There are a lot of exciting things in the works this year and one of my favorites is being invited to be a regular contributor on the Better Homes and Gardens Magazine Food Blog, Delish Dish!! You know how much I love BHG, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to be among their elite team of bloggers sharing recipes over there. I’ll be on there once a month sharing recipes and I made these chocolate strawberry scones for my inaugural post. I would LOVE for you to check it out over there and let me know what you think!
