Sweet Sour Cream Biscuits

I've been thinking about my good friends in The South, lately, and that leads me to think about food.  The South and good food just go hand in hand.  You can't have one without the other.

If you don't think you're a fan of biscuits, try these.  They're moist (sour cream), slightly sweet (just a tad of "sugah") and you can bake them right in your muffin tin!  These biscuits work for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


You need to try them, y'all!

Rita cooked the pork in her slow cooker before arriving and then showed Samuel how to crisp it in a cast iron skillet. Of course, she brought her own skillet. She's authentic like that. She even printed up her recipe for me (see below). She's a great sister-in-law like that.

Here's Samuel pretending to cook the pork carnitas.  As you can see, his Nana thinks that's pretty funny. She doesn't usually let men in her kitchen. At l…
