buttermilk cheddar cheese biscuits

in the winter when it’s freezing outside, i am always craving a spicy pot of chili or a hot bowl of hearty soup. with the weather and as cold as it has been lately, i prolly don’t have to tell you just how much soup we’ve been eating lately. (this texan is pretty annoyed with how…

strawberry + mascarpone tartine with balsamic reduction

a few months ago, i took a little weekend trip to nashville with a dear friend of mine, to help her find a house. (kid-free, i might add. WOOT WOOT.) we viewed about 20 houses in two and a half days, and obviously worked up quite the appetite. being the good friend she is, she went along…

mrs watson’s pumpkin bread

in the fall, i sometimes get a little too excited about christmas being so close. i confess, i begin to listen to christmas music and bake things that remind me of the holidays. all because the temperature has dropped, like, 15 degrees. when we were traveling a few weeks back, we spent some time in…

crispy french toast

my husband can be a little picky when it comes to certain foods. french toast just happens to be one of them. he has a thing with the sogginess of regular french toast (for me, i find the sogginess quite divine). so every friday night i get an itch to make something fun for breakfast…

savory cheddar, green onion, + buttermilk muffins

these muffins are great with any southwestern-leaning dish, but are the most perfect when paired with chili. they have become my go-to, over cornbread. the Mr loves to crumble them right over the top of a large, steaming bowl of said chili, or he’ll spread a little butter on the inside of a warm muffin…
