Cranberry Orange Scones

These Cranberry Orange Scones are the perfect holiday treat to wake up to! They are bursting with fresh cranberries and refreshing hints of orange zest. Plus, they are gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free!

Life has been busy, you guys!

But in the best way possible. I’ve been cranking out recipes for my cookbook with a messy routine of testing and writing, testing and writing. Then cleaning. If only my dishes would magically do themselves! On top of that, I’ve been bringing you new recipes, infographics, posts on favorite household products and the importance of sleep, exclusive email newsletter content, and so much more. I also have some fun projects planned for 2016, like weekly dinner meal plans and shopping guides all of January! So STAY TUNED!

Next week we are heading to New York (where I’m from) for some good old time with family and friends. I hope you have some awesome holiday plans, and if you’re cooking, I got you covered!

But first, scones.
