kale and green apple salad - we're so cool we had to wait till kale wasn't a trend anymore

Before I begin, let me preface this week's post with a statement, a statement of my own character which will become progressively clearer as you scroll further down."I am lazy". (what's new)

This week I've been plagued with a sore throat, so forgive me if I don't talk much in this post. Trust that there will be various occasions in this post where I "cough" to give myself an excuse not to finish the sentence. This week I made a *cough. 

Unless you're blind or illiterate, you know that Chow Creations has finally succumbed to the raw, healthy, vegan, gluten-free, I hate to say it but yes we're getting onto the kale trend. Wait...what do you mean "kale" isn't a trend anymore? So my producers are telling me that "kale", nor "justin bieber" are trends anymore. I know, I'm as astounded as you are. That means Chow Creations has successfully diverted yet another food trend! Yes! Long time readers of this blog know that it's our highest goal to subvert any food trends until we start our own. I'm still trying to get "grapeberries" and/or "rectangular cake prisms" started

strawberries and cream scones

Somehow people have this misconception that scones are difficult and tedious to make with little or no corollary satisfaction. And by people I mean me. It's not like they're brownies am I right. But anyways, this week I had my first attempt at the "difficult" triangular devils, and to my surprise they were nothing of the sort. These scones were moist  and buttery with a delectable creamy crumb and sweet pockets of fresh strawberries laced throughout. If you're a non-foodie that's code for "you will not be disappointed if you make this right now!"

Keep reading if you want to learn my patented (not really) 5 Step Scone Making Method: Dry, Butter, Wet, Form, and Bake. As always the ingredient list will be at the bottom of the post.

Scones are dry, hard, and tough to eat. But Strawberries and Cream Scones are fluffy, creamy, berry-y and delicious. They're also really quick and easy to make.
