Summer is so close! I feel like once the weather starts warming up and the days become longer all I want to do is have a relaxing day outside, starting with brunch on the deck. Brunch foods are pretty much the best foods all put together in adorable arrangements for everyone to enjoy. It’s a feast not only for your stomach but your eyes as well.
When I create food for brunch I always make sure to have a variety of fresh fruits, cheeses, meats, and some type of bread or pastry. Scones are one of my favorites to make because you can make them either sweet, savory, or in between – which is what I’m sharing with you today.
