Jalapeno Cheese Swirl Bread

After months of not being able to find yeast, I finally found a couple packets and snagged them. Baking fresh bread is super relaxing for me and I so needed to make a loaf. I’ve been stressed about making a decision for what my kids would do when they returned to school and needed to take some frustration out on bread. There’s nothing like a good bread kneading 🙂

I picked up a few jalapenos at the farm stand and had planned to make salsa, but my tomatoes were water logged and splitting. I haven’t had much luck with my garden this year.

Ham and Cheese Scones

There’s just something about scones that I love. I don’t know if it’s the flaky, buttery dough or how versatile they are. I had leftover ham from Easter dinner and used it to make a batch of these scones. Everyone loved them and they were so easy to make. They were a little sweet with the addition of brown sugar, but savory as well!

They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, dinner – really anytime of the day! I served them with scrambled eggs and a green salad one night for dinner. My daughter finished the batch by eating them for breakfast. I’ll definitely be making these again!
