Cream Scones with Lemon Curd for the Homemaking Party

Welcome to the Homemaking Party!

Everyone's been craving scones but I've not wanted to take the time to make them!  Horrible, I know.  Recently, I found Julie's drop recipe on Babble so I thought I'd try it out.  Wonderful!  I've also been wanting to try lemon curd, which I've never had, so I tried Amy's recipe at Very Culinary.  The two together = Delicious!  Wow, I totally need to hide this from myself!
There has been some confusion about when the linkup starts.  I have it up each Wednesday night by midnight PST.  I leave it at the top of the blog all week long so it's accessible to those who are coming to link up. I love to feature some of the neat posts that are linked up so please make sure and put my button or a text link on your blog so you'll be eligible to be featured!

Here are a couple of my favorites from last week's party:

I just had to feature this excellent article from Judith at WholeHearted Home about God's Blog.  I'm not even going to tell you the details because I want you to GO READ IT!  Just take a minute and do it...you'll be so glad.  What a great perspective!

This post from Danielle at Snippets of Inspiration is exactly what I've done to grow my readership exponentially in the past four months.  Definitely worth your time to read...thanks, Danielle!

Tandis from Life As We Ski It wrote about the awesome protection power of a baby's fetal cells in, Baby Cells Stay With Mom For Life.  What a miraculous way we've been created---thank you, Lord!

Sarah at My Joy-Filled Life revealed her awesome new homeschooling space.  Wow!  What a blessing to have all that room and ability to organize.  Love it!

Thanks to everyone for the great posts!

If you have been featured, please grab a button! PLEASE grab it because I have been working for WEEKS to get this sucker up and Jamie (smart man that he is!) explained to me that...  all I have to do is FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!

Hope In Every Season

  6. Your scones look amazing! I love that article on fetal cells staying with the mother for life! That is amazing! Thank you for hosting and for linking up with Home Sweet Home!

  7. Did someone say lemon curd? Yummy. I made my favorite cake a couple of weeks ago, lemon, and lemon curd is an optional filling. I didn't use it this time, but maybe I'll use your recipe next time I make my favorite cake.
    I'll come back to link it.

  8. These remind me of the time my sister and I decided to make cookies and we made scones not knowing what they were. I wish we would have known about the lemon curd. Yum!! Thanks, Sarah!

  18. Scones sound great! Make them frequently, especially for breakfast with strawberries and raspberries. Love lemon curd too. Happy May!

  19. Hi Sarah,

    I love lemon curd! I remember my mum making it, years ago- I might have to have a go myself.

    I've linked up a fashion (or would-be fashion) post. Does that count for homemaking? I wonder if it's stretching it to say that me and my clothes are part of the home:-D

    Thank you for hosting:-)

    God bless:-)

  20. My hubby loves scones. I am going to have to try this recipe for him. Thanks for sharing it! Looks like a nice party.

  21. Hello Sarah!!
    OK, there you go again, making my mouth not only start watering, but puckering up for lemon!! Yum! I bet those were amazing!
    I actually got to eat a piece of moist delicious carrot cake on Sunday for Mother's Day!! YUM!
    Hope you have a lovely week, and thank you so much for joining me for my party!

  22. oh my you know I love lemon!!!!!! xo
