Wondering how best to get this bright new year off to a good start?  Follow this sound advice from the Swallows & Amazons family.   

I got up early to make what I thought were muffins until, having liberally adapted the recipe, I realized it was meant to be for scones.  Proud therefore to announce the invention of a new breakfast idea, ‘scoffins’. 

Have a wonderful, healthy, happy year.

‘With breakfast,’ said Susan.
