Apple Farm, Pumpkin Patch, Corn Maze

This weekend, along with too many other fellow Cincinnatians, I went to a corn maze. This has become an annual event for us, and one that Alex really enjoys. Whereas I remember it being crowded, with lots of lines and little direction about where to pay or what you are waiting for, Alex likes navigating through the maze. He likes puzzles.

Before we set out, we had a hearty brunch of tofu scramble with mushrooms and spinach, some facon, and apple rosemary scones.


I took this photo this morning with a few leftover scones. Speaking of leftovers, Alex’s sister was visiting and I sent her home with several of these, but the leftovers at our house are going fast.

I used the recipe from Vegan Brunch with the addition of fresh rosemary and apples (skin on, see the flecks of red?). Yum, yum yum. I think the key is shortening, which I have not used in ages. I did get the special non-hydrogenated kind rather than using Crisco, though. I’m not much of a baker, but I think I’ll have to make some regular biscuits too. I feel like I have all the ingredients now that I have white flour and shortening in the house again.


The corn maze was fun, especially for Alex. He posed for many, many goofy photographs. But we found our six hidden boxes, punched our cards, and earned a free mini-cup of cider.


  1. Those apple rosemary scones look scrumptious delicious! I'm not surprised they're going fast.

    The corn maze sounds like fun...I've never been to one, but I think I would like it.

  2. If you stop feeding Alex's sister so well, maybe she'll stop visiting all the time.

  3. Mmm those scones look killer! I would love to have one right now. And yay for corn mazes! I'm hoping to get my maize on this weekend ;)

  4. Mmm, I'd love one of those scones!

  5. Those scones sound and look delish!
    The corn maze sounds fun. We used to go to a haunted one...that was pretty fun! They don't have it any more for some reason though. :o(

  6. The scones look very delicios!
    I have to admit: never tried them!
    Looks yam..
