my favorite 2 ingredient - vegan - biscuit recipe!

i’ve been on a bit of a biscuit kick recently, so i thought i’d share with you my favorite recipe! i’m not sure where it came from (and i’m not claiming it as my own), but it’s incredibly easy and super delicious. we’re talking 2 ingredients here! it’s also easy to make vegan (or not) and gluten free (or not). they come out of the oven steamy, light and fluffy with a bit of a crunch on top. yum!

my favorite 2 ingredient - vegan - biscuit recipe!


use equal parts:
vegan sour cream (regular works as well)
– self rising flour*

*if you only have all purpose flour, simply add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to each cup of flour to make it self rising.

**for gluten free biscuits, substitute all purpose gluten free flour and make it self rising by using the instructions above.


mix together equal parts sour cream and self rising flour. drop spoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet (or parchment paper). bake at 350°F until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

topping ideas:

- earth balance butter
vegan gravy
– honey & jam

hate for hate

free your mind
{free your mind by katie daisy}

“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”


i’m not sure how you’re feeling today, but this puts words to a feeling that i’ve had for a few days now. i want to spread light today.

wendy jug ceramics
i think these ceramic night lights from wendy jug are just dreamy. for those of us without a fireplace, these would be a great alternative as they create such warmth and coziness. i can see them set back in an old fireplace well or huddled together on a mantle. placed on your nightstand for a romantic touch or an added soft light to a comfortable reading nook. no matter where, i love their glow.

life through the lens

life through the lens photography

kristi lives her life through the lens.  she believes that aaron siskind best describes the way she feels about photography with this quote: “photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. what you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” i can see how the beauty and the passion from this quote truly weaves itself into her work.  what a beautiful life she lives through her lens!
