Apple Scones

This morning, I made apple scones for breakfast.  I have been wanting to make them since trying apple scones at New Cascadia, a 100% gluten free bakery in Portland, Oregon.  You can read my reviews from our recent trip to Portland here.

I started with my Perfect Gluten Free Scones recipe, added diced apples and cinnamon to the batter, then coated them with glaze when they were done baking.

Veg on the Edge - Santa Cruz, California

Yesterday, we had lunch at Veg on the Edge in Santa Cruz, California.  Veg on the Edge, a 100% gluten free, vegan and kosher restaurant, is located inside Abbott Square Market in the downtown area, and serves West African-inspired cuisine.

I first learned about Veg on the Edge when they opened a few months ago, but heard they shared space with a pizza restaurant, and that there could be flour in the air.  Abbott Square Market does house several fast causal restaurants, but there is a wall completely separating Veg on the Edge from the neighboring pizza restaurant, and after watching pizzas being made at Pizzeria la Bufala for over half an hour, I did not see anything to be concerned about, but as always, you should decide where you feel comfortable dining.
