I’ve mentioned countless times my love of weekend breakfasts. This time of year, our Saturday mornings are usually spent at the farmers market, grabbing breakfast from our favorite food trucks and coffee from a local roaster before walking around the market. Sundays, though, are usually spent getting extra snuggles from Clara and making a leisurely breakfast. I love days like that and want to soak up as many of them as I possibly can. I’m sure plenty of people, some of our friends included, would find this weekend routine boring, but I really don’t care. I love mornings the three of us spend together, and those mornings are why I eagerly await the weekend.
Last weekend Eric made one of our favorite biscuit recipes, one that I’ve been meaning to share with all of you for a really long time. They’re drop biscuits, which means they come together in no time and are incredibly easy to make. This recipe uses chipotle powder and cheddar cheese, making these biscuits perfect for breakfast or brunch or as a side at lunch or dinner. The chipotle flavor is intense, but the smokiness and heat are offset by a generous smearing of honey butter. The smoky-sweet combo is hard to beat, and these are especially fantastic served alongside bacon. I thought the spice level would be too high for Clara to enjoy these, but she took a bite out of mine and immediately wanted more. Fair warning: these are highly addictive, and you may just find yourself snacking on one at lunch time after eating two at breakfast. Not that I’d know or anything.
