Honey-Roasted Carrots

Sprinkle these bad boys with a tiny bit of fresh thyme.Hello! Greetings and such :) Before I get into this recipe, I wanted to share with you all some exciting news. I'll be on the Dr. Oz show January, 19th (today)! They're doing a little segment on food bloggers, weight management, and all that jazz..and I was honored to be a part of it. I had a blast, despite being nervous to the highest of hells lol. I've never done TV before, so it was pretty jarring for me. I didn't have much time to process it either. I received an email the day of my 34th birthday (Nov. 12, 2014) asking if I wanted to be on the show, and I thought it was a joke. Turns out it wasn't. They had me on my way to New York just a few days later and the preparation for it all was nuts! It went by so fast, I'm just now able to process what happened. Dr. Oz and his amazing staff were extremely kind and accommodating, I'd definitely do this all over again if asked.

Flaky Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits

*shouts*Merry Christmas! This is my gift to those of you who asked. I posted a picture of these biscuits on Instagram and everybody went nuts, so I decided to share my recipe. I like my biscuits many ways -- flaky, not flaky, sometimes cakey, fluffy, sometimes drop'like -- it all depends on my mood. However, it's always good to have a flaky buttermilk biscuit recipe in your arsenal. So, you're welcome in advance and I hope you nail it. I tried my best to be as detailed as possible. I realize biscuit-making can be intimidating, but the concept couldn't be simpler. As long as you remember one VERY important rule...KEEP EVERYTHING COLD AS F&#K. Seriously. Your warm balmy hands, and/or warm kitchen can destroy what we're trying to build here -- rising layers!
