Try This- 4 Ingredient Homemade Beer Biscuits

Thanks to my local farmers’ market, I’ve been swimming in butternut squash and I’ve been making the most divine Butternut Squash, Sour Cream, and Apple Cider Soup at least three times a week. Since the weather has taken a turn for the worse, nothing warms my bones like a hearty fall soup and I’m totally obsessed with this one. The thing is, I was craving the perfect bread to sop up what my spoon couldn’t handle, and add that extra stick to your ribs push that almost every fall soup recipe needs.

So I started reminiscing about last year’s Pumpkin Beer & Sharp Cheddar Gnocchi Soup, I realized that what I was missing from this year’s obsession was that subtle flavor of beer. Beer, much like bacon, or cheese, or sugar, makes pretty much everything taste better. You guys… beer biscuits… that is all. I found this healthy beer biscuit recipe, and while they look absolutely delicious, I decided that, for me, making a healthy version of beer biscuits is about as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie. Instead, I tweaked the recipe for a naughtier, more decadent, and undeniably simpler version. With just 4 ingredients, these homemade beer biscuits are super easy to make and they round out every fall meal from salad to soup. You must try this!

Try This— 4 Hot Beverages You Can Enjoy Instead of Coffee

These 4 hot beverages will scratch your coffee itch without all the caffeine. The perfect coffee alternative for anyone that needs some sleep!

The one good thing about the temperatures plummeting the way they did this weekend is that I was able to pull my chunky throw out of retirement, curl up on my couch, and sip on some totally delicious hot beverages. I’m definitely a coffee girl, but with all the talk about self care and the importance of sleep, I know that I shouldn’t indulge my coffee addiction after dark when I’m watching Castle Rock on Hulu. With that in mind, all weekend long I made sure that I never had an oatmeal latte after noon (you have no idea how hard that is to do if you’ve never had one), and when I craved a little something to warm my bones in the evening, I picked one of these delicious drinks instead!

Try This— The Easiest Homemade Vegetarian Ramen Recipe

I pretty much lived on ramen when I was in college. Back then my four basic food groups were salt, junk, cheap, and easy. Such is the gut fortitude of a nineteen year old. Times have certainly changed, and though my taste and my junk food cravings haven’t, at least now I’m old enough to try and make healthier choices. I want to keep my ramen classy, y’all. No more undergrad ramen for me! I mix up my own seasoning and keep it on the shelf, ready for those nights when I’m feeling just as sleepy as I did when I was in college. You can’t get much easier than a basic ramen bowl, and with some simple add-ins, you’ll be well on your way to total ramen sophistication. You must try this!!!

Basic Ramen bowl
