Buttermilk Biscuits

I think everyone needs to make buttermilk biscuits.  They’re flakey, tangy, buttery, and quite simply delicious.  I first fell in love with biscuits when I ate at Pine State Biscuits.  In my attempt to recreate their biscuit, here’s is my recipe.

Best Coffee Shops in Salt Lake City

Best Coffee Shops in Salt Lake City

Looking for a cup of joe and homemade goodies?  Check out my list of the Best Coffee Shops in Salt Lake City.

*The coffee shops are listed in no particular order.

The Rose Establishment

Excellent coffee and food.  I have yet to eat a disappointing dish. I would sell my soul for their chocolate chip cookie or the avocado toast.  Or really anything else they serve.  My only advice is to get there early because their pastries often sell out before closing.

Must Have Monday 8.21.17

This week’s Must Have Monday is inspired by my time in South Korea.  It is…

A pair of scissors or kitchen shears.

You may question the use of scissors in the kitchen but they truly make prep time quicker and easier. In Seoul, I saw scissors mainly used to cut grilled meat, which worked great, but I have found it has many more uses.  Here are the items I use to cut scissors with:

  • Raw bacon, pancetta, or prosciutto
  • Herbs (chives work especially well)
  • Scallions
  • Slicing a quesadilla
  • Trimming fat off meat
  • Dicing up dried fruit
  • Slicing a pizza
  • Breaking up whole canned tomatoes
  • Romaine lettuce for salads


On Amazon, the prices for kitchen shears range from $10-$15.  I use regular scissors which work just fine.


A few recipes I have used scissors include deviled eggs and caesar salad
