Chocolate Strawberry Scones
Happy Monday friends! I hope the New Year is going great so far and you are still pumped about all the possibilities 2016 holds. Things are a bit hectic on my side as I try to finish up experiments and prepare for a meeting early next month. It’s going to be beyond hectic with finishing my Ph.D., applying for a job and hopefully getting said job and potentially moving all in the span of months. When I think of it, I just want to crawl up on my couch with a blanket and a warm scone with tea. It brings comfort to the idea of just how much I have to do and how much life is about to change. Exciting changes yet still scary. But in those few minutes when I am enjoying a scone, I forget all about it and relax/recharge. These chocolate strawberry scones came to the rescue last week; they are simple, hearty and delicious (warm) with a cup of tea.
Given all this chaos, I will be a little scarce around here. I’ll still be baking (because I just can’t stop myself, especially when I am stressed it helps me) and will pop in once or twice a week to check in with you guys … and bring you some new recipes of course. But forgive me if I am slow to respond to your comments or come say hi on your blogs.
There are a lot of exciting things in the works this year and one of my favorites is being invited to be a regular contributor on the Better Homes and Gardens Magazine Food Blog, Delish Dish!! You know how much I love BHG, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to be among their elite team of bloggers sharing recipes over there. I’ll be on there once a month sharing recipes and I made these chocolate strawberry scones for my inaugural post. I would LOVE for you to check it out over there and let me know what you think!
Grab the full recipe for these chocolate strawberry scones on Delish Dish and be sure to say hi over there 🙂

Yes busy yet exciting!!
Congrats on the gig with Delish Dish! And I am sure you will do great finishing up your PhD and get that new job. A lot of work is ahead to be sure (as you know I know) but it’ll be all worth it! Just make sure you continue finding time to decompress with a scone 😉
Thanks Erin! Oh I know you know. I am not sure how it’s going to get done but it will 🙂
Wow, girlfriend! I am exhausted just reading your list of all the things coming up! Congrats on almost being done with your PhD! Smarty pants! And congrats on being apart of BHG! Woot woot! These scones look fabulous and like the perfect thing to devour first thing in the AM… or when I’m stressed! Love them! Pinned! Heading over to get the recipe now! Cheers, Z!!
Hhahah I know!! Thanks girl. Have a great weekend.
That’s is awesome and BIG CONGRATS to you! I love BHG and am excited to see your posts there. This scone is awesome. I love the combination of chocolate and strawberry, and add this to my must-make list.
Thanks Linda! I am excited too.
Hey Zainab! Congrats on everything — you have so many big and exciting things coming this year! And congrats on becoming a contributor on BHG — so much fun! These scones are the perfect way to kick off the year 🙂
I am excited about this year too! Thanks Ashley!
Sounds like you have a lot going on! The scones look delicious 🙂
omg Michael would die over these! He looooves all things choc+strawberry!
Awesome!! You need to make them for him 😉
Goodness you sound so busy! Sending you lots of good vibes! And these scones! Sound and look fantastic!! Happy 2016!!
So yum! It’s like having chocolate covered strawberries with a cup of tea or coffee for breakfast 🙂
What exciting, and I’m sure stressful, events! I don’t think I could handle all of it, Zainab! But I’d try with several of these scones in my hand 😉
Oh wow, you have a lot on your plate! Best to you getting that PhD finished, and congrats on the Delish Dish gig! Scones and tea sound like a great way to deal with chaos — I don’t make scones often enough and need to change that immediately. 🙂
Goodness, girl! I don’t know where to begin! I can totally relate to finishing school and prepping for exams. I don’t have a Ph.D, but I do have a J.D. and I unfortunately was unable to block out the whole prep for the bar exam and applying for jobs process. I had a family at the time, but no food blog. It’s brutal, but you can do it! Congratulations for making it to the finish line! You can’t go wrong with chocolate and strawberries to get you through. And, of course, you have that beautiful baby E! 🙂
It’s always a lot of work but it will be all worth it! Thanks Rachelle!
