Wayback Wednesdays: Two-Ingredient Biscuits

I wanted to make biscuits with a meal we were having, and I happened to think about the self-rising flour I hadn’t used for awhile. That reminded me of these biscuits.

Grilled Old Bay Shrimp

Growing up, it was always exciting when we were at the grocery store and one of my parents would suggest ordering some steamed shrimp to take home. It wasn’t until I lived out in Washington for awhile that I realized this was one of those things I wouldn’t get outside of my home state. Basically, they would steam the shrimp in their shells with a heavy amount of Old Bay seasoning. Then, we would rush them home and eat them still warm, peeling them quickly out of the shells. My mom would serve them with ketchup for us kids, and horseradish mixed with ketchup for her and my dad. They were so good and I can still remember the taste, even though it has been well over a decade since I have had them. I’m not sure if I could get my family on-board with peeling the shrimp at the table, but maybe I can upgrade them that eventually. For now, this is a super easy recipe that was so tasty. Feel free to add more Old Bay after cooking if you want more of a kick.

Wayback Wednesdays: Challah-back Wednesday?

I decided to make some French toast and needed to make bread so I was going to go with my most recent favorite bread recipe. But then I thought about it and wanted to make something simpler, so I looked and decided to make some challah bread. Maybe this doesn’t seem that long ago, but by the time I posted it on here, it had been awhile. It deserved to have a comeback….a challah-back, if you will.

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Orange Beef

This was a disappointment but probably mostly my fault. I did make changes to the recipe I followed…but at the same time, I haven’t had the best of luck with many of the recipes from this website, and I went ahead and stopped following them. I don’t want to be tempted since clearly the website’s recipes and I do not get along well.

BBQ Chicken Meatballs

It’s been a meatball frenzy over here. I have been making different ones and they have all been hits. The kids and I loved this recipe so much. It was easy and came together quickly. Normally I bake my meatballs, but I liked that this was faster and didn’t actually require much oil, so they weren’t greasy like I worried. I might continue skillet-cooking meatballs for now.

Theo Chocolate Picture-Perfect Souffle

I’ve made chocolate souffles before but wanted to give this recipe a go, too. I ate most of them myself because apparently they are too chocolatey for the rest of my family. So, if you’re not a huge chocolate fan, maybe steer clear. Or, try adding some whipped cream or caramel sauce on top if that is your desire.
