Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Cinnamon Butter

Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Cinnamon Butter
Have you given up on making biscuits? Do they seem like too much trouble for the end result? I was kinda in that boat. There are far more interesting things to make…or so I thought! I made these for the first time last fall to go with some Thanksgiving leftovers. My family went wild for them! And to make a good thing even better, they always turn out great! And because I live in the land of biscuits and honey, we top it all off with some must-have honey cinnamon butter! Gather Up:2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes 1 stick butter, melted 1 ¼ cups milk 4 cups self-rising flour Pinch baking soda 3 tablespoons sugar For the Honey Cinnamon Butter:1 stick butter, room temperature 3 tablespoons honey ¼ teaspoon cinnamon Pinch kosher salt Mix together the sweet potatoes, butter and milk until well blended. Shape the dough into a ball and knead about 10 times on a well-floured surface. Roll the dough out about ¾ inch thick and cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Serve warm with the butter.

Homemade Onion Rings « Straight from the Farm February 23, 2010 at 10:28 pm Jennie Oh the humble onion. How often I have overlooked thee in my winter local food stores. You might ramp up the flavor in a soup or an omelet, nevertheless I just wasn’t thinking about what you might do as the star of the show.

French Fries: The No-Guilt Version There’s nothing like a french fried potato. The taste, the texture, the dip-ability; it’s probably one of my favorite go-to comfort foods. However, I don’t need the fat of an actual deep fried potato, and I certainly do not favor processed french fries that come from the frozen food section of the grocery store. Enter: Healthy French Fries* Step 1: Peel your ‘taters. Baked Green Bean Fries with Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce Do you ever find yourself in one of those moments where you just have no idea what to do next and you find yourself unable to do anything at all? That is exactly what happens to me when I am trying to plan meals for the week. Especially when I don’t have a lot of time and I need to go to the grocery store. That was the scenario a few weeks ago.

Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. - StumbleUpon Around here we watch quite a bit of Food Network. My son loves science and history (and, of course, food), so he loves watching Good Eats with Alton Brown. My daughter likes to watch Paula Dean and Rachel Ray, especially if they’re cooking chicken. The other night we were watching the new series “Kid in a Candy Store” and they featured something called Texas Brittle. Texas Brittle? What the heck could that be?

Sparkling Champagne Cupcakes 2010 is almost a memory, and what remains is mostly the bitter-sweet disassembling of Christmas. I've been finding pieces of packaging shrapnel from eager gift opening and the odd half-eaten piece of Christmas candy (a sure sign of overindulgence). For me, these days-after feel a little awkward, but reflecting on the year fills my glass half-full again. So many amazing things happened, and I am hopeful that 2011 will be even better! Grilled Corn and Tomato Fettuccine Last summer I fell in love with a million things. Nude nail polish, avocado toast, baked beans on top of eggs and super long walks with lots of gossip to name just a few. Oh and cold beer. A little late on that train, but…. better late than never. By far, the cream of the crop was grilled corn.

san francisco garlic fries Well folks, not much going on this week. I’m still 800 million degrees, which I guess is normal if you’re a human incubator. I’ve become a stretchy, elastic waisted pants spokesperson, because ohmygah maternity jeans are the most incredible thing I have ever worn, excepting for the sweat pants I model almost daily. Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing. I got my first taste of this salad dressing when a dear friend brought it over with a meal she had made for my crew right after Nola was born. From the moment the heavenly concoction hit my lips, I wanted to drink it right out of it’s re-purposed glass bottle. Since asking begging her for the recipe, I’ve probably made it weekly. And I make it for everyone I know. If I love you, I will bring you this dressing. It’s been proven.

Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken - StumbleUpon Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges, and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent.
