"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This is the scone recipe Peterson's use for Navajo Tacos. It is easy to serve to a crowd. If not serving immediately, place cooked scones in a warm oven to keep warm.

This is a Brewster tradition for their canyon breakfast on Memorial Day.

These scones are also Moore's traditional 4th of July breakfast.

Hmmm what holiday is left for Tingeys?
