* Edited with prettier photos and a little update! This Avocado, Olive & Jalapeño Dip  recipe has become one of my most loved recipes. My friends all request that I make it for parties, and there is never any left over when I put it out...

I just adore the taste and tradition around scones and cream teas. Many of us who live in the South of England (or anywhere in the UK come to think of it) will know this as a quintessentially English Afternoon High Tea Treat. And you...
