Yellow Split-Pea Soup

There's nothing like a bowlful of this flavorful, filling soup to wake up your senses and fill your soul - and your stomach - with love! Add crusty bread and a salad for a complete meal! Serves eight, including finicky children!

Lavender, White-Chocolate Scones

Adapted from a Cooking Light recipe (can you say, “Low-fat & guilt-free”???); these are my family’s favorite breakfast treat! Light, fluffy & delicious – I always make a double batch!

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour (white wheat does NOT work well here)
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
½ cup fat-free milk
1 large egg white
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup dried lavender (I used Harney Lavender tea – make sure yours is edible!)
1/3 cup white chocolate chips

2 teaspoons fat-free milk
