I originally created this blog back in August. The idea was to share the recipes I like, either my own or found, with friends. And most of my recipes are quick. With two kids, I don't have much time to labor in the kitchen. I also love to eat out so that would pop up in a discussion or two.
And I posted zero. So now, I'll just write what I want with the goal of writing daily. I've got 30 minutes to meet today's deadline. So here's what happened today ...
Chris got together with neighbors Will and Shea to build a snow machine. Yes, a SNOW machine. I was rather bummed Thursday when we were promised 1-2" on the ground and we got nothing. Bummed is not the right word, I was mad. So the boys bought the supplies, headed to Shea's studio and 8 hours later, we got frost on the ground. I think the plan is to keep tinkering with it tomorrow and we should have some fun sledding down the hill. Thanks, hubby!
And here's what I made for breakfast. Both boys, big and little, like 'em and it's a super fast recipe. There are lots of versions floating around on the Web. I add more cinnamon and nuts. Tailor it to your liking.
Easy Cinnamon Biscuits
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups biscuit mix (Bisquick, etc.)
1/2 cup cold water
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
In a small bowl mix sugar, pecans and cinnamon and set aside. Prepare mix according to package directions, using the cold water for liquid. Take a good pinch, make a ball, roll in melted butter, then in cinnamon, sugar and pecan mixture. Arrange dough balls in 8-inch round layer-cake pan, pressing down slightly. Bake in preheated 400° oven for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
