recipe by my dear friend Emma, from Australia,@ Sunflower Days.
On her recent previous post, she made these incredible rustic raspberry scones, that caught my eye, and I simply fell in love with it. I mention to her on my comment, that I would like to make the scones, but I don't have raspberries, so she encouraged me to make it, even though I have blueberries...and mind you I had tons, and tons of it. If you shop it Costco, you know exactly the sizes their product come in. Well, the blueberries came in a huge plastic container that was 908 grams=32 ounces...how do I know how many ounces? ...it was written on the package, but I did my homework, knowing I have to do some converting the Metric measurement on
Emma's recipe. Click here, for the recipe, and click back to my blog for the measurement conversion.
I did the multiplication, just to prove a point, 908g. x .0353, and it's exactly 32 ozs.
Just when you thought you've seen really nice blueberry recipes...check out my friends, Brenda's and Kathy's amazing...

Here's the Conversion list again, just in case you need it!
ounces to grams: multiply ounce figure by 28.3 to get number of grams
grams to ounces: multiply gram figure by .0353 to get number of ounces
pounds to grams: multiply pound figure by 453.59 to get number of grams
pounds to kilograms: multiply pound figure by 045 to get number of kilograms
ounces to milliliters: multiply ounce figure by 30 to get number of milliliters.
cups to liters: multiply cup figure by 0.24 to get number of liters
Getting off the subject, now...the time has come once again, as in every year at this time; some of us get to go on vacations, while some of us stay here, now for the third year...boo, hoo...almost crying...well not exactly! I am so fortunate to be living in one of the most beautiful, tropical, and most desirable place in the world!!! We have sunshine every single day, have the most beautiful beaches, in-ground swimming pools, just about every one has a pool, all the best local eateries, that won't put a "hole" in your pocket...very affordable, the local fun outdoor restaurants that are right on the water, live outdoor theaters, most of them free, we have City Place, right here in West Palm Beach, where you can spend an hour, or spend the entire day...an outdoor mall, but of course better than
a mall, so leisurely, so magical, I've already posted several photos of it in my previous posts!
I mentioned about paying my awards forward on my last post, but as you all know, it takes such a long time to be linking the names of the blogger, and their blog to do all this. I came up with the perfect solution...since I've been
"milking" this last post...not so much for the attention and for more comments, although I must confess I do love all the comments...it certainly brightens my day to know that there are blogger friends out there who care. I try to do the same, as much as I can to keep commenting. So, I will not drag this on any longer.
Please collect your awards all of you lovely people...friends...from my previous post! All 30, which is perfect. You have two awards to take, copy, paste, or upload from the link and you know what to do...pass it on...pay it forward to whoever you wish to that are deserving of it. Thank you, thank you...from the bottom of my heart!!! Your names are all linked into the previous post, and I will remind you also, to let you know that I have an award for you! Now, wasn't this easy?
Please accept the awards...the first 30 commenter friends!!!
...Gotta run back to my daughter's house to feed the doggies... since family is off to Italy...they just called to let me know they got there safely...yeayy...and of course I "broke down crying like a baby on the phone"...Bye!
First, you add the little pea size pieces of cold butter, which in conversion is 2 ounces=half a stick of unsalted butter. Carefully crumble it in with a pastry blender, then blend in the liquid, but don't mix it too much. At the end, fold in the berries real carefully.
I baked it in a preheated 425 degree F. oven for approx 25 minutes.
Just "feast" your eyes at these gorgeous scones. Bet it won't last you more than one day:DDD
