Gluten Free Zucchini and Goat Cheese Scones that don’t suck thanks to Chef Vikki

Life is about experiences and making good friends for life. You’ll make lots of friends along the way but only about a handful you’ll actually really like. I like Vikki. A lot.

I had the privilege and honor of making friends with Vikki Krinsky a while back and she’s totally changed my life. Not to mention my way of cooking.

Vikki is the most magnetic person I have ever met. When she walks into a room. You know it. Her eyes are as big as her heart and she has a smile that even makes the meanest bastard smile. I’ve witnessed it.

When I met Vikki we clicked immediately and it was like we had known each other our whole lives. I have never met someone so positive and passionate. When I say passionate, Vikki puts life into everything she does. Cooking, creating, hanging out, working out, humor. If Vikki’s there, everyone is getting along and having a blast.

Literally everything she does comes to life.

If Vikki does something she gives it 200%. I know what you’re thinking and no. It’s not even annoying.

There isn’t enough space to tell you how awesome the Vikkster is. Calling her the Vikkster is what makes me annoying.

I’ve been an indecisive fool my whole life and Vikki has turned my world upside down. Not only am I the luckiest dude in the world to call her a friend, I’m indebted to her for the rest of my life for all that she is and continues to do for me. The only one of my many debts I’m happy to be in.

Vikki totally opened my eyes to a new way of baking that I have subconsciously been fighting. That baking can be clean and simple. Using cheeses, yogurts, coconut oil and alternative flours she has totally changed my baking game.

We were experimenting in the kitchen one night with my Lemon Ricotta Scones when Vikki suggested we use all almond flour. I was hesitant and Vikki had the best answer, Why not? So we went with it.

That night we made Ricotta Scones and Vikki, with her culinary genius doctored them up, and they were killer.

This is a rendition of those scones. A little simpler, more refined but just as awesome in flavor because I learned from the best.

Thank you to God and the universe for bringing Vikki into my life. Keep an eye on her. She’s going to be a household name someday. I truly believe that.

The law of attraction is always working, whether you believe it is or not.
