How Jealousy Spurred Me to Make Biscuits

ok, so I guess I am a petty person. The other morning my lovely wife Rachelishungry decided to make some biscuits, and they turned out really nice. Light and fluffy, warm and tasty, just like her! minus the fluffy part of course…In other words her biscuits were the exact opposite of my many attempts at creating biscuits but actually making hockey pucks made of sawdust…I can cook almost anything, but a good biscuit has always eluded me for some reason which I have mentally swept under the kitchen rug for years…but  my wife’s biscuits made me so darn mad at myself i had to one up her and make even better biscuits, and by Jove and bu golly i think i did just that….sorry wifeishungry…i used an old recipe for Angel Biscuits from one of my vintage cookbooks…see, my biscuits were always too flat, like a can of pepsi sitting on the hood of a car in summer or the top of Glenn’s head…but the addition of yeast!?!?!?!?!?!? sounds like sacrilegious jibber jabber, but it sure did work..anyway..i ate one…lisaishungry ate one, catishungry ate one…somerandomladyintheshopishungry ate one…and we all agreed that they were the best biscuits ever made by anyone ever in the history of mankind, including your grandmother!!! yes YOU!!!!!<<<<<warning!!! the previous statement is probably not true in any way shape or form<<<<<<<

anywho, look at the pictures, yo! there’s even some pictures of the book store all up in this mofo!!! maybe even a PICTURE OF SOME POTATOES!!!!! FUDGE YES!!!! word to your mother..peace im out..abc-ya…drop the zero and get with the hero baby!!!!

Grilled Cheese Pretzels?!?!?!

This is another chapter in my book “I’m Lovin’ This Panini Grill Thingy.” It goes like this:

It was a dark and stormy night. Iwashungry ad raided the freezer, finding a tucked away box of SuperPretzels from the grocer’s freezer section. These are hot pretzels with a little salt packet that you pop into the oven for a minute or two and then dip in cheese or mustard ranch dressing mixed with hot sauce. ANyway, i took two of the suckers, stuck a piece of cheese in between them and tucked them gently in to the Bad Assed Panini Grill Thingy. The results were, to say the least, munch-i-licious.  Like a grilled cheese, but with more salt. Needless to say, they went rather well with a cold adult beverage. I reckon one could make this without the Bad Assed Panini Grill Thingy, but that would just be stupid.

Monkey Bread, kind of, the Easy Way

The entire Hungryfamily is home to celebrate the presidents, although I am not sure why since most of them have been lying cheating thieves, but I took the chance to make some monkey bread-ish contraption out of refrigerated biscuit dough, melted butter, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.  While it was not quite as good as the full bundt pan style monkey bread, it was mighty tasty and took all of 5 minutes to make.  And this is a rarity for me, because i raaaaarely do sweets. I also threw in a picture of brown sugar rubbed bacon getting ready to go into the oven. Dammit i should have put the bacon on top of the monkey bread!!!! Well, as they say, hindsight is 20/20 and I’m nearly going blind. Actually, that was Randy Travis.

Mexican Corn Bread Stuffed with Deviled Eggs and Bacon

I’ve been toying with this idea for a while and tried a test run tonight of Mexican Corn Bread Stuffed with Deviled Eggs. I took some serious short cuts, but they still turned out pretty darn tasty, although the pictures did not. Basically i made some deviled eggs with thai chili mayo and bacon mixed into the yolks, folks. Then I tried to make little dough balls of mexican corn bread(from a mix) wth some cheese added to it, but it di not want to stick to the eggs, soo i wiped out a little bit of the bacon grease in the still hot cast iron skillet, threw a big ol’ spoon fulls of the corn bread mix into the bacon grease and stuck a deviled egg into the middle of it which was topped with the bread mix, which clings nicely to the top of the deviled eggs. Anyway, after it set for a second i popped the whole thing into the 375 degree oven for 25 minutes and they came out very nicely. I will work on this recipe in the future,as i think it holds promise, which is almost as nice as holding the door for an old lady. Next time around i will make the corn bread from scratch and try a muffin tin, and I may also move the bacon to the outside of the whole thing. It could be chopped up raw and covered in some brown sugar and chipotle chili flakes then spinkled on top of the muffins before cooking….that would work!! no one is allowed to do that yet. Ignore this post!!! Do not share this idea or make it and take cool pics and make me look like a weenie!!! Ignore ME
