Yorkshire Pudding

Serious Eats did a “myths of Yorkshire pudding” article, and since we were going to do prime rib for Christmas, I felt like I obviously needed to make puddings to go with it.  Kenji did not let me down!  These were excellent.  Definitely the way to go from now on.  Because I was worried about having enough drippings, I actually used bacon fat and it worked out well.





Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

We went with these as a side for our Easter dinner, and we really liked them.  They were very flaky and had lots of flavor.  I added a handful of finely sliced green onions and about 1/2 a teaspoon of garlic powder.  I think next time I will double that, and also cut the salt in half – our only complaint was that they were a bit on the salty side.  The recipe below is as-written.  I did do an egg wash on the top of them, and though it was optional in the recipe I think it shouldn’t be skipped.  This is another Ina Garten recipe, and a definite go-to for biscuits.
