a year in review, 2011

This year, like the year before, has been wonderful and full of family.

Personally, we’ve:

– celebrated our second wedding anniversary (with a wonderful trip to Savannah & Charleston)

– watched the one-year mark in our (not so) new jobs fly by

– celebrated the marriages of two dear family members

– said goodbye to loved ones, dear to our hearts

– created quite an impressive (if we do say so) art wall in our apartment

– increased the number of lipsticks in my collection

– watched as my youngest sister, gen, graduated from college

– dreamed up and created a pie festival

– spent more time with our three families than ever before

Biscuits and Such has: 

– been published in Southern Living

– celebrated its third year

– finished a redesign

– smoked our first LOCAL pork shoulder

– said goodbye to Menuism (sadly)

– said hello to many new followers

– made many new videos

As always, thank you for being here. Happy New Year.

Christmas Morning Special


Merry a few days after Christmas! We’re still in the throes of a whirlwind holiday extravaganza but I wanted to pop in and share a time-honored Waldron family tradition, the Christmas Morning Special.


Each year my Poppie makes this concoction, something he describes as a Southern Comfort Old Fashioned. It’s SoCo, orange juice, cherries, and oranges. Sweet, smooth, delicious, and festive. Perfect for a holiday morning!

As many cherries as your heart desires

An orange slice

Orange juice

Muddle together orange, cherry, ice, and SoCo. Pour in orange juice, as little or as much as you like. Enjoy!
