Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

My son requested biscuits for breakfast over the weekend. I have a “go-to” recipe, but sometimes, I like to mix it up and try something new. I decided to change things up a bit and reinvented my old recipe.  I usually roll out the dough. When I mixed all of the ingredients together, the dough…

Buttermilk Biscuits

My son requested biscuits for breakfast over the weekend. I have a “go-to” recipe, but sometimes, I like to mix it up and try something new. This recipe had rave reviews, so I decided to give it a go. I noticed that this was a “drop biscuit” recipe and I’ve never tried one before. I…

Peach Cake

Did I ever mention that I have a friend that likes to post recipes he wants me to try on my Facebook page? Well he does, and this is one of them. I’m not a huge fan of peaches (ok, I actually love the flavor of peaches, I just really hate the texture), but I…

Bagels

I’ve been interested in making bagels for a long time, but I could never get around to doing it. One drawback is that it’s at least a two-day process and I’m kinda impatient. But I’m still in slow-mo mode from being on vacation, so this was a good time to give it a try. The…

Garlic & Cheddar Pull Apart Bread

The other day I was cleaning up my Pinterest page, and ended up spending a good hour or so wandering around. Have you noticed that sometimes it gets a little theme-y? Like one week everyone discovers rhubarb, or sterling silver, or everything pink, and suddenly your feed is covered with variations of the same thing?…

Funfetti Sugar Cookie

It’s been a little rainy lately and I was in the mood for something colorful, but also for something that wasn’t going to be a lot of work. My son had been asking for sugar cookies and I still hade sprinkles left over from my un-fun-funfetti cake, so I was set! This recipe has always…

Biscuits

This recipe was given to me by a good friend that claimed his girlfriend made the best biscuits. This was further verified by his family (so he says). She was nice enough to share the recipe so I could try it myself. I’m always on the look out for something good, so I was eager…

Challah

I haven’t  made bread in a long time and I thought I could use the practice. I wanted a bit of a challenge with shaping dough, so I chose challah. The shape and the size of the challah didn’t turn out as expected, but it was very tasty. I think my recipe failed somewhere in…

Bacon & Cheddar Breakfast Bread

I cannot take claim for the invention of what my son calls “the best thing ever”, but he is the creator of its title. While spending the weekend with a close girlfriend, she made this for the kids for breakfast. Hers had sausage and cheese, and was made more like a long calzone. It was…

Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread

I thought my mother invented Monkey Bread. She’s made it as long as I can remember, and when I moved away I started making it myself. Well… I didn’t make it too often, because it’s bread and I have self-policing issues around carbs. Sometime last year, I was invited dinner with friends. They were making…
