Buttermilk Lard Biscuits

I am on the other side of a 14 hour migraine, slowing starting to see things clearly again… I hope ya’ll have had a better start to your weekend than I have!! ¬†So… since staring at a bright computer screen and trying to be clever and cute isn’t super appealing or even possible at the moment, I will let this recipe speak for itself ūüėČ

I recently played around with my Whole Wheat Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe and somehow managed to make them even better!!  And all it took was a little pork fat.

because pork fat.

Like a Big Pizza Pie… like, just like it.

I’ve shared this before, but it was when nobody cared or knew who/why I was. ¬†So it needed to be brought back around again. ¬†This is one of my favorite things I’ve ever done. ¬†It just makes me so happy.

It’s a literal pizza pie. ¬†Double crust pizza pie. ¬†Pizza crust on bottom. ¬†Filling in center. ¬†Pizza crust on top. ¬†Baked til golden brown and crispy on top and ooey gooey in the center.

mind. blown.

Avocado Toast Turnt

Sup.

So Avocado Toast is stickin’ around for a bit, yeah? ¬†People are straight up obsessed with it. ¬†There are Instagram pages dedicated to it, and only it. ¬†And I’ve made it before… I get it. ¬†Toast + Avocado. ¬†Two yummy things put together. ¬†But, see I never really make it for myself, because I never really crave toast, or bread for that matter, during the day. ¬†I have myself a giant (GIANT) hunk of my homemade sweet sourdough¬†every single morning of my life… then I go workout… then I pretty much am wanting protein and veggies throughout the day. ¬†It’s just how I do things. I love bread and starches far too much to ‘waste’ them on something. ¬†So I control how I get my favorite food group every day. ¬†And I’m a happy camper. ¬†People think I don’t eat carbs, because I’m always having salads and such when we go out…

But nobody has ever been more wrong about anything in their lives.

She’s got eggs… she knows how to use them

I’ve just been so darn busy, y’all. ¬†And not being able to keep up with my work over here means I owe you all an apology. ¬†I’ve still been active daily on Instagram, and have almost-daily been creating and shooting things to eventually be shared here, but unless I’m just throwing a bunch of measurements and pictures at you, I just don’t have the time to give you what I think you deserve… but today I felt like I needed to throw something quick your way to make you remember me again. ¬†A little quickie.

Ginger Grape Julep with Thyme and Black Pepper

You have about 3 hours to go and make this for you and someone else.  Or I guess they both could be for you.  Or you could make as many as you want.  Or you could make it sooner than 3 hours.  Or in less than 3 hours.

That’s really not the point.

Just make it and drink it while you watch horses run.

I’ll spare you my opinions on horse racing, but I do love me a good theme.

And I also love me bourbon.
