Double Blue Scones

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

My first experience making scones was—believe it or not—on an island in the Great Barrier Reef. I was on a scuba excursion that was set up through the university I was attending in New South Wales, Australia. While staying on Lady Musgrave Island, the small boat we were using to take us out into deeper waters drifted away, so we had plenty of time on our hands to cook. I don’t recall exactly how we managed to make the scones, but I do remember that they had dates in them and were delicious. This version is equally good, and you don’t need to be stranded on an island to enjoy them.

Mega Mango Coconut Smoothie

In Breakfast, Recipes, Smoothies by Frances Largeman Roth

This sunny smoothie is excellent for starting your day or fueling up before a morning run. Mangos have two seasons, spring/summer and fall/winter, which means you can always find at least one variety at the store. Mangos needn’t be red to be ripe—just give them a gentle squeeze and if they “give” a bit, they’re ripe.

Cherry Almond Smoothie

If there’s a bowl of ruby red cherries in front of me, chances are I’ll just sit and eat the whole thing. But occasionally I’ll restrain myself long enough to actually pit the cherries and use them in a recipe.

What’s better than a smoothie for breakfast? A smoothie bowl! For folks who would rather spoon their meal instead of sipping it, but want the benefits of a fruit smoothie, it’s the way to go. Plus it’s fun to add the toppings in a cool pattern.
