Grandma Johnson's Scones
Very good recipe, but not overwhelmingly great. I found these scones to be more like biscuits (as in bisquick) in texture and flavor instead of the scones I'm used to, which is slightly drier and more firm. That may just be my prejudice due to my previous favorite scone recipe, though. Don't let my review deter you from making these - I've made several batches and I can attest that adding any of these things to the scone recipe works great: Fresh blueberries, fresh raspberries, currants, diced apple (add a little cinnamon to the recipe for apples), and maple/brown sugar topping (mix brown sugar with good quality maple syrup until a very thick paste is made, depress scone in the middle with a spoon to create a dent and fill with maple/brown sugar mixture. Bake as normal, but be careful, the mixture will run. Yum!)

Irish Brown Soda Bread
I pretty much followed the recipe exactly. The bread is tasty, though quite dense, and needs to be eaten sooner rather than later - otherwise you lose that nice crusty exterior and soft interior. I must say that I didn't care for it so much with just plain butter - though it was great with jam and butter for a breakfast treat. Not sure why, but I needed to add considerably more liquid to the recipe in order to knead it, otherwise it was like working a pile of dust. As the recipe says - knead lightly! I made a few loaves that turned out great, then over-kneaded a few and they turned into tasty bricks!
