Last week I asked my mylot friends what did they serve for tea time when they had company. As it happened, my friend came with bread and a chocolate cake so all I did was to make an egg paste. A mylotter suggested scones and the scones bug stayed in my head so I asked Google for the recipe. Today we tried it with Leticia. I got a cheese scones recipe and we did that in minutes. We will change it a bit. The recipe asked for too much salt considering that grated cheese is salty. Maybe I will even omit the salt as I use salted butter for my bread. Do you change the recipes that you read and follow? I do most of the time. I have to take special care of the salt in recipes as many of my friends have high blood pressure.

Yes, I often modify the recipes that I read online, but I prefer to check my old cooking books. Too many people copy and paste recipes modifying ingredients and procedure to avoid duplications, but spoiling the recipe.

I love to read some of my old cooking books although some are very outdated

@marguicha Even if they are outdated you can always find something interesting to prepare.

@LadyDuck I agree. But once I read one of my most beloved cook books for an octopus recipe and it started with "that hideous thing" Now, would you eat something that the book called hideous?

We don't have tea here, but I have been to many in hotels. Scones are yummy! I don't bake much because I try to keep away from sugar.

These scones have no sugar. They areno be eaten either alone, with a bit of butter or even with a thin slice of ham
