Biscuits, Lunch, and Dinner

March 13, 2012

Never mind the fact that I’m sitting alone in a Portland hotel room, nervous-eating tortillas out of a bag.  Never mind that.  That’s neither here nor there.  Well… that’s actually here, and happening.  Suffice it to say that this book tour has me out in the world doing things that I wouldn’t normally do.  It’s awesome, exciting, and tortilla binge inducing.  That’s a complicated phrase.

Can we daydream about something while I sit here and work on this tortilla stack?  In my daydream are biscuits (which are totally breakfast), lunch (which I wish could always be fries), and dinner (which I always want to be mashed potatoes… but isn’t).   Come over.  Daydream with me.  I’ll totally share my bag of tortillas.

(…gosh I wish I weren’t so weird.)

brown sugar bacon

Why haven’t I invited you over for a biscuit and bourbon party?

Why is that just now crossing my mind?  These Brown Sugar Bacon Biscuits would be perfect!

hot cross

Tis the season for Hot Cross Biscuits.  Golden brown and studded with currants.

If you didn’t give up biscuits for Lent… these might just have your name written all over them.


Biscuits transition.  Biscuits were born to transition from morning to afternoon and evening.  This Caramelized Mushroom with Chive Buttermilk Biscuits tastes like a double hug.

orange salad

This Spinach, Feta, and Blood Orange Salad is such a beautiful occurrence.  It’s the perfect reminder that the world is absolutely stunning, on your plate, and edible.


I sometimes cook in color themes.

Green Goddess Israeli Couscous Salad.


Pretty vegeterian patties from Heidi Swanson.  Lemon, Green Olive, and Parsley Quinoa Cakes.

This recipe has salty olives and fresh parsley.  I want them every day!  Health!


In real life, if I’m not eating biscuits, tortillas, or doughnuts… I have a deep desire to eat spicy lentils.

This Ginger and Lentil Soup is a life-saver.


Nothing heals like Sunday pasta and wine.

Well… except a bag of flour tortillas.  Those heal too.
