Checking In + New Recipes I Love

Well, you may have noticed that I fell off of the 31 Days bandwagon. I had to stop. It gave me good momentum to get projects accomplished and I've continued to try to tackle the lingering projects around my home. However, blogging every single day sucked the blogging joy right outta me. I never want to blog because I feel like I have to blog. I want to blog because I love it. As a result, I took a step back for the past month and gave myself a break.

The break has been lovely and was much needed! This year has been hard and ridiculously busy. I didn't realize how much I needed this break, even from something that I love doing. I will not be resuming regular blogging until the new year, but may pop in here and there during the next month or two to say hi.

Today, I wanted to pass along two new recipes I've tried out this month. I've been trying to cook new things recently and am always excited to find great recipes!

The first recipe is Pioneer Woman's Self Rising Biscuits. Oh my word, they're so easy and so delicious! I've made biscuits several times before, but they are never that great. I usually wind up just buying the canned biscuits because I know that they will turn out better. But, these are a game changer for me! I've made them twice and they've turned out great both times!

I followed the directions to a tee except for two minor things--I didn't bother sifting anything and I didn't bother breaking out my rolling pin. With a baby getting into everything while I was trying to cook, I had to take some shortcuts. ;) I simply flattened the dough with my hands. Less dishes, less time, and turned out beautifully!

The second recipe is just downright insane. Insanely delicious, that is. Kevin and Amanda's Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie is so rich and decadent!

Again, I followed the recipe exactly with only two small exceptions-- I don't like dark chocolate, so used half dark chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips. I also skipped the salt. I think it'd be delicious, but I forgot to buy coarse salt at the store and Jeremy isn't a fan of salted sweets. So, I just skipped that step. Still amazing!
