The sun has been shining for a few days in a row now. Despite the occasional rain shower, I am riding around with my sunroof open and sunglasses on! It’s amazing what a little sunshine will do for the soul.

The same can be said about bacon and biscuits. 

These mini maple bacon biscuits are just the right amount of sunshine to brighten up your mornings this week. Whether you are eating them with a big slather of butter or making a breakfast sandwich out of them, you’ll love the sweet and savory mix in every bite.

I am sure you’ve noticed a bit of an absence lately on the blog. While I wish I could say I’ve been buried beneath a pile of biscuits and been eating my way out, the reality is that it’s been a bit rough in my world lately. There are ups and downs in everyone’s life, and despite being on a bit of a downward trend, I am pulling myself back up, bit by bit.

It’s times like these when I turn to cooking and realize how truly healing it is. Especially when it’s bread/biscuits/cookies. I firmly believe all of those things could cure the world of all it’s sadness.

    Maple and bacon? Yes please!

    The problem with mini anything is there’s always room for just one more…and one more…
