Chive and Cheddar Beer Biscuits

Chive and Cheddar Beer Biscuits

Sooooooo, biscuits.

I love them. I could eat them every meal of every day forever and ever. There’s something about pulling apart that buttery, flaky dough – and then slathering said flaky dough in even more butter – that just makes the world a happier place.

Chive and Cheddar Beer Biscuits

I made these Sunday morning for several reasons: first, baking biscuits is way more fun than finishing the lit review for my Master’s thesis. Second, I needed to shoot a recipe for this whole bloggity blog situation. Third, beer biscuits mean you also totally need to pour an additional beer to use as a photo prop and then drink that additional beer because waste = bad and who cares if it’s only 10am and you have a 30 page thesis chapter due because this is WORK RELATED.

It was really only a matter of time before beer made an appearance in a biscuit recipe here. I love drinking beer – love it love it love it – but I also really enjoy boozing up my favorite recipes with the flavor that only comes from a deep, dark stout or a hoppy IPA. It adds a whole other layer of richness to food. Put a good beer together with a handful of bright, fresh chives and some sharp cheddar cheese and then wrap it up in a biscuit? Bliss. Pure biscuit-y, cheesy, chive-y, beer-y bliss. [read more…]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Goat Cheese and Bacon

YOU GUYS. THIS SOUP.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Goat Cheese and Bacon

 

I don’t repeat meals very often (the blessing/curse of being a food blogger). Once a recipe is developed and shot and posted and eaten, it kind of falls away to make room for whatever new bloggy things I’m dreaming up. But this soup is an exception. I think I’ve made it three times in the last month (which, for someone who makes their beer money by putting up NEW recipes every week, is practically unheard of). But I can’t help it! It’s just so creamy and it has this crazy amazing flavor and DID I MENTION THERE’S GOAT CHEESE. Also, bacon. Because BACON. [read more…]
