Paleo Blueberry Scone

Okay, so I have to admit blueberry scones are one of my non-paleo weaknesses. I have struggled with finding a paleo blueberry scone recipe that I like or even sounded somewhat appetizing.

Can I Eat Butter?

One of my mantras in the office is that most people should avoid wheat, corn, dairy, soy, and sugar. Inevitably people ask what about butter isn't that dairy?
