When I Hit a Wall

…..I make biscuits…. It’s a terrible affliction.








Writers Block Biscuits

(you’ll notice these are very similar to Cheddar Bay biscuits)


2 cups flour

3 tsps baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbs butter (or shortening, or Vegetable oil)

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp dried parsley

1/4 tsp old Bay Seasoning

2/3 cup water

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or really any semi-hard cheese will do)



1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp parsley

1/8 tsp salt


Combine dry ingredients, mix until just combined, add butter & cheese and combine until the texture of soft crumbs. Add water and mix until dough comes together.  Break into 8 even size balls and bake  for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  While biscuits are baking, combine topping ingredients. When biscuits are golden brown, remove from oven and brush with butter mixture.

Try not to eat them all in one sitting…..

thanks a lot, jenny lawson….

ImageIn order to increase productivity, I have blocked my facebook, gmail, huffington post, design sponge, and eater during the hours of 9am-7pm, Monday through Friday.

But a couple of days ago, I discovered Jenny Lawson’s The Bloggess…. and now I am hooked like a slab of meat on her unique brand of sass and taxidermy.

I’ll probably have to add her to my block list if I want to get any work done, but I can be writerly and buy her book, too….
