Welcome to another edition of the Leftovers Club!! I am thrilled to be matched with Joanne from Eats Well With Others. She makes the most amazing treats for our group– homemade marshmallows, macarons….you name it– Joanne has made it.

Congrats to Joanne– she got married this past weekend :) Yay! She looked gorgeous in her photos that I stalked on social media. Joanne and her new hubby are not going on a honeymoon right away, so I sent her some banana-pecan scones for breakfast in bed. The recipe came from the Newlywed Cookbook that I got when I got married. I hope she enjoyed them!

    Thanks soOoOoOo much for these chica!! You have no idea how integral they were in my survival during the pre-wedding week. I pretty much would have starved without them!

    I am a MAJOR scone lover. I don’t think I have ever eaten a banana scone. I wonder why that is? I mean I don’t think I have even seen one. Well now I have!
