In a rare moment of silence (my son is actually taking a nap) I’m enjoying some biscuits the two of us whipped up earlier today. I had roasted a pumpkin and stuck it in the fridge with high hopes for an inspiring brain fart. This morning I decided I would make slightly sweet biscuits. I … Continue reading Pumpkin Biscuits
Not to rub in how awesome my kids are (rub rub rub) but despite some tantrums, lack of sleep and general food dislikes, we have somehow created children that will at least try what you put in front of them.

I don’t like sacrificing flavor and I love experimenting with cooking, … Continue reading Something A Little Different Today
