My mom is miles away, so I can't make them for her—she'll have to settle for flowers from FTD. And sadly, I doubt baking is on my kids' agenda for the weekend,which leaves me to my own devices. I love these banana scones. They originally called for sourdough starter. But I discovered they were just as good with yogurt, (seeing that I can't seem to keep any sourdough starter alive), They're great with a cup of coffee and for some reason spell peace to me. Here's also a recipe for scones from Mother's restaurant in Portland and also some of the best scones we've had. Either way, have your own Maxwell House moment this Sunday with a scone, or your mom, if you're lucky enough to have her with you. —By Jill Melton, Editor Banana Yogurt Scones 2 1/2 cups flour 1/3 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces 1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 egg turbinado sugar Preheat oven to 375F.
