Fluffy Homemade Biscuits

Sometimes ya just need a good biscuit to complete a meal.  Know what I mean?  Talk about versatile.  You can pretty much eat a good biscuit at any time of the day.  In the morning with a hearty breakfast.  Lunchtime with some tea and your favorite jam.  Dinner with beef stew and so on.  If you think about it, there’s really not much you can’t eat paired with a biscuit.

The other day I slapped together an egg, bacon and potato hash for dinner.  We love us some breakfast for dinner!  To compliment our hash, I decided to try my hand at some homemade biscuits for the very first time.  I just had to bring my visions of eating a warm fluffy biscuit with butter melting on it to life.

And here they are…  Just look at the golden tops.  They were very good and quite easy to make.  I even ate the leftover two the next day with grape jelly for my lunch.

As I mentioned in my Essie nail polish giveaway post, I’m a tad bit obsessed with nail polish.  The trend for fall of 2011 seems to be creamy neutrals, metallics, glitters and rich jewel tones.

I went through my nail polish collection and picked out my favorites that I’ll be wearing til Spring 2012.  I always like seeing what nail polish looks like out of the bottle before I buy it so I’m sharing my swatches with you.  I hope these pictures inspire you to get your paint on!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brr, it’s starting to look like fall around these parts.  While I am ready for cooler weather, I am not looking forward to snow.  I wish fall could stick around for several months.  I like that mix of semi-warm days and cooler evenings.  When it gets to colder days and colder nights, that’s when I start to cringe.  Cause I know daylight savings time is coming and bringing snow with it.

The cooler weather is making cooking and baking more appealing though.  It’s so nice to bake some cookies with the air conditioner off and the windows open.  Today I’m sharing a new chocolate chip cookie recipe with you.  These cookies turn out nice and chewy but a little crispy around the edges.  That was easily remedied though with a slice of bread in the storage bag with them.
