Mrs. Larkin is a trusted source on Baking.

What a nice surprise! Thanks, guys. I must tell you, since joining food52, you both inspire me to cook actual meals for my family, which they are all very thankful for. It's been a tad scone-heavy around here for the past couple years. Luckily, there's that unconditional love thing, so it's all good.
