In case you’d like something to snack on while your eyes feast on my new etsy shop here is the recipe for the scones in the beautiful photograph below. If you use yogurt, thin it out with soy milk until it has the same consistency as heavy cream but leave room for a little beer. Told to me by my brother Wayne as told to him by our Uncle James . . . it helps the scones to rise. The beautiful photographs for my shop were taken by photographer, Kevyn Fairchild and the great copy by copywriter Dan Icolari. Thank you both for a great job helping me relaunch.
