Holiday Food – Sausage Biscuit Balls

sausage cheese balls

In a rare moment, mostly only around the holidays, I have a very slight and fleeting interest in culinary pursuits. I’m especially attracted to recipes that contain four or less ingredients, and requires three or less steps. These sausage biscuit balls are simply glorious in that, for one, they are utterly delicious, and for two, they require no skill to make. Perfection. What you need: 4 cups bisquick 1 pound of ground sausage browned and cooled 2 (or more as you prefure) cups shredded cheese (any type will do) Approximately 1 1/2 cups milk (just enough to make the dough stick in balls) Heat oven to 450.  Mix all ingredients together.

Edible Gifts – A popcorn roundup

DSCF2602-001

When I was a kid, the most exciting family gift given to us mostly every year by some friend or another was a tin of popcorn. You know, the big round tins that have pretty Christmas pictures on the outside? I had three older siblings to contend with, so the plan was very simple. Devour as much of the caramel variety as possible and move on to the cheese as quickly as possible. The plain butter variety was kindly left to the others. It rarely worked, but you can’t blame a kid for trying! Things apparently have gotten a whole lot fancier in the land of popcorn flavors since I was little…where were all of these back then I ask you??

10 Recipes with Fall spice

Fall Decor chapter37

Cooking is not my thing. Eating, I’m quite skilled at, cooking not so much. It’s a rare day you’ll see anything about cooking on this blog. That said, when the air turns crisp in the mornings, even I get into a fit to bake a bit. And then the urge quickly dies five minutes into it when I realize what a fine mess I’m making! What’s a girl to do? Find something easy, that will smell delicious, that’s what. Half the trick to making people think you’ve cooked something good is how it smells. That’s my theory anyways. I’ve scrounged around and found ten recipes to inspire my Fall baking that are just chock full of Autumn-ish ingredients…guaranteed to make my house smell like an exquisite bakery. And if unforeseen catastrophes befall me, well then, I’ve got plenty of cinnamon and apple scented candles that should do the trick just … Continue reading
