Roasted Cajun Scones

Roasted Cajun Scones

Garnette found this recipe for Cheddar and Chive Scones ~ she thought it had great potential so she added a tablespoon of Roasted Cajun Dip, left out the chives, and sprinkled a little Everything Blend on top ~ and boy howdy, they disappeared mighty fast!

Here’s the recipe:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon Roasted Cajun Dip

1/2 cup butter

3 large eggs (one is for an egg wash)

2/3 cup buttermilk

2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese

Everything Blend for sprinkling on top (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375F.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and Roasted Cajun Dip. Cut the butter into this mixture with a fork or pastry cutter.

Whisk two of the eggs and add them to the buttermilk. Pour this into the flour mixture and stir until just moist. Stir in the cheese and mix lightly ~ dough will be sticky. Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface and knead lightly. Cut the dough in half and form each half into a circle. Cut the circles into four wedges. Place these wedges onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Whisk the remaining egg and paint the tops of your scones and sprinkle with Everything!

Let scones sit for about 10 minutes before baking ~ then bake for 20 minutes or until golden!

Enjoy these scones warm with butter and tea, or even with some tomato soup!

Charleston Spice Co Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is what you make it.

Maybe its spicy, maybe its even spicier.

Maybe it has a celery stick, maybe it doesn’t.

Maybe it has a little garnish, maybe it has a lot.

Maybe the garnish is all olives, maybe its just every pickled item you could find in your fridge.

The possibilities of the Bloody Mary are endless, you just have to listen to your heart.

Here’s how we make ours:

5 oz V8 juice

1 tsp Caribbean Oil Blend (or Roasted Cajun, or Smoky Cajun, or really any blend with a little kick)

2 oz vodka

Pour vodka into a pint glass over ice. Mix spices into the V8 juice and pour into glass.

And that’s it. But it doesn’t have to be. If you really want to bring your bloody to a whole new level rim the glass before you start pouring things in. We like to do this with bbq sauce (we use Southern Comfort BBQ Grilling Sauce, find it at the Summerville and Mt. Pleasant farmers markets) and smoked salt (we usually use Yakima Salt):

And let’s not forget about garnish! This is your chance to get wild:

Or this is your chance to eat the veggies you’ve been practicing your pickling skills on:

The most important thing is to make a drink that inspires you, that you can dream about later, and that you want to drink.

As always, enjoy!
