Maple Oatmeal Scones and Homemade Mascarpone

Last week I decided that I really wanted a scone and I had pinned this recipe a while ago and decided to give it a shot. It was pretty delicious. The only thing was that it was a bit too salty, but I did use salted butter and I'm assuming she did not, so next time I would just drop the salt to like 1/4 teaspoon. Also I didn't have any buttermilk, but I used this technique and it worked perfectly. But they were wonderful and I definitely want to make them again.
The next thing on my list was homemade mascarpone cheese! I have been wanting to make cheese for a while but I just never had the ingredients (rennet specifically). I know that I should just get some and give it a try but this mascarpone recipe only called for cream and lemon juice! It was so easy! I used it in a baked mac & cheese recipe and it was wonderful, didn't taste any different than when we used store bought. The only thing I did differently was not leave it for the second night, because when I twisted the cheesecloth to get more moisture out, there was none. End of story, you should all try these two things, maybe not together, but you should try them.
