Surprise Biscuits [Vodka & Biscuits]
This past Sunday, I found myself doing something totally outside of the norm – having two back-to-back brunches! Where do I put it away? I’m still wondering about that answer, myself. At our first place, Stable Cafe, I had the “egg in the hole” with bacon and brie cheese. YUM! Now if any of you remember, this used to be a meal that Veronica and I would make for dinner about once a week or so. It was so easy and cheap to make, but now when you go to places in the city you have to pay 8 bucks for it! We call this fancy brunch. I noticed that for awhile I’ve been saving some pretty unconventional breakfast recipes to my Pinterest board lately so here are a few that I thought I would share. Enjoy!
Five Pie S’mores [Tablespoon]
Hey y’all! Happy National S’mores Day! It didn’t make sense to not have a post about this highlighting some of our favorite s’mores recipes so that’s exactly what we’re doing. I thought it would be pretty challenging to come up with five different pins, but then I remembered how long I’ve actually been using Pinterest and how many possible things you can make with s’mores and how I’ve probably already saved them. You’re welcome. Realistically though, it’s hard to highlight all things s’mores so we’re just trying to stay in the general theme. Hope that’s okay!
It may be National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, but ice pops are having a serious moment this summer! I’ve been saving recipes for ice pops to my Pinterest board since I can remember, but lately, they’ve been popping up more and more! Not only do they look delicious and come in a wide variety of flavors, but they’re the ultimate summer treat and a modern upgrade to the popsicles we used to buy at the grocery stores way back when. Here are just a few of my favorite recipes below. Maybe you’ll try them out? Let me know what you think!

I feel like I missed out on a great opportunity to have ice cream on National Ice Cream Day today, but I’m glad to see that everyone else in my Instagram feed was enjoying it. I actually had my ice cream moment earlier this week at Tin Pot when Tommy and I made a quick trip after work. For the first time in years, I had my coffee ice cream in a cone instead of a cup and it was more stressful than I could ever imagine. Why does ice cream melt so fast?! I felt like a little kit again with a pile of drips at my feet outside the shop, but it was so worth it. To celebrate National Ice Cream today, we didn’t get to eat it, but here are 5 yummy flavors that you can dream about tonight!
Now that it’s summertime, it’s pretty much the prime time to be eating fruit whenever possible. I actually try my hardest to eat fruit on a daily basis, but sometimes fruits just taste better at other times during the year. You all know what I’m talking about. So while it’s fun to eat things raw and out of the packaging (my parents despise when I do this and think that everything should be rinsed out) it’s also nice to spice things up a bit. Here are five of my favorite ways to do just that:
1. Literally spice it up!
At work, our chef sometimes likes to put a little cayenne pepper on our watermelon for a little kick and it’s my favorite only because it’s a little bit of an unexpected surprise. Try it on watermelon and pineapple and this recipe also suggests using a little lime juice as well.
