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.

Mexican Hot Chocolate: Melted Ice Cream, Cinnamon, & Holiday Spice Mexican chocolate is a true indulgence — rich and thick with a touch of cinnamon flavor. When you take such a wonder, mix it with melted ice cream, and serve it steaming on a chilly winter evening, well…you might just start serenading your mug with mariachi music. While you can serve a cup of this Mexican Hot Chocolate all by its lonesome, I happen to think a dollop of Cayenne-spiced Dulce de Leche cream seriously turns up the heat on this addictively-warm beverage, elevating it from ‘dang good’ to ‘muy, muy delicioso!’ Enjoy!

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.
