Recently, my hubs and I went on the Duck Commander Cruise with the Robertson Family (Duck Dynasty anyone??). We had an amazing time and I’ll be sharing some recaps soon. One experience I did have was a Cooking with Miss Kay session. Willie was on stage helping out, too. Evidently he’s the cook in his family, so he showed us one of his favorite recipes. Miss Kay shared how to make her Melt-in-Your-Mouth Biscuits. When we got home from our trip, it was one of the first recipes I gave a try and let me tell y’all….SO.GOOD!

So, I’m going to share her recipe with y’all. Plus some pics of the Cooking with Miss Kay session from the cruise. She is just as sweet in person as she is on the show. And her and Willie’s relationship is so funny. Just look at the pics and you’ll see for yourself.

This recipe makes about 20 biscuits. Recipe from the Duck Commander Cruise guidebook.

Ingredients:

4 cups biscuit mix (I used the Pioneer Brand which is what Miss Kay recommended), plus more for rolling
2 cups sour cream
1 partial can of lemon-lime soda (Sprite/7-Up)…about 1/4 cup
1/2 stick of butter, melted
2 cast-iron skillets or a large baking pan
rolling pin

Directions:

1. Heat the oven to 375°F
2. In a large bowl, mix together the biscuit mix and the sour cream with a pastry blender (I just used a fork). Add Lemon-Lime soda a little at a time and mix with a fork until the dough forms a ball. **You will not need the whole can of soda. Don’t overdo the liquid.
3. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup biscuit mix on the counter to roll the dough in. Turn out the dough onto the biscuit mix on the counter. The dough will be wet, so pat on a little more biscuit mix as needed with a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/2 inch thick.
4. Melt the butter in the skillet on a baking pan.
5. Using a round biscuit cutter cut out the biscuits (small drinking glass will do). Dip the cutter in biscuit mix for easier cutting.
6. Dip both sides of each biscuit in the melted butter and place biscuits close together in the pan (or skillets).
7. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

These Kitchen Items are true Kitchen Must Haves!!

I’ve been married for almost 8 years. Looking back at the whole wedding/registry process, I wish I would’ve asked for advice on what kitchen must haves I needed. I had no clue back then! Like seriously…lol. I will say that the one thing that I was smart on was my dishes. I didn’t register for china because I knew I would eventually end up with my mom’s dishes. Smart move. My mom had a ton of different kinds of dishes!! Anyways…I thought I would list off the must-haves for the kitchen. One of these items is still on my list of things to get because of so many people telling me I need to get one stat (the juicer)! The rest of the items…I own and use ALL the time!

Food Processor…yes, yes and yes!

Blender…a great investment…pick up a Blendtec or a Vitamix. I love my Vitamix!

Juicer..on my want list!

Microwave Cover…save yourself from cleaning up messes in the microwave!


Wine Bottle Opener
…an electronic one!

Can Opener…don’t waste your money on the electric versions…old school all the way!

Mixer…another investment! Get yourself a KitchenAid Mixer. Trust me.

Mandolin…Love my mandolin!

Microplane…great for quick zesting!

Mesh Strainers…so many uses!!

Griddle…easy for pancakes!!!

Cast Iron Skillet…a MUST HAVE for sure!

Crock Pot…cannot go wrong with one of these!

Knives…another important investment! A good set of knives!

Timer…you can’t have too many timers in your kitchen!

Wooden Cutting Board…I love my Bamboo cutting boards!!

Pots and Pans…important to invest in a good set of pots and pans. I have some Rachael Ray non-stick and some Emeril Stainless and I use them both for different reasons.

What’s on your Must Have Kitchen List? What do you wish you had that you don’t have?

#NOEXCUSES Workout: Full Body Workout

Looking for a full body workout? How about a workout that can be done anywhere? Check out this #NOEXCUSES Full Body Workout!

I’m back at it today with another #NOEXCUSES Workout…a Full Body Workout!! You can check out all the workouts in these series by clicking here. The purpose of the #NOEXCUSES Workout series is simple. It’s exercise routines that you can perform practically anywhere. No gym membership required! So….#NOEXCUSES!! PS…have you signed up for the August #NOEXCUSES Fitness Challenge? Read all about it here!! Sign up by July 31st to be eligible for prizes!

On to the workout…

Warm-Up: 5-10 minutes
Burpees: Start by standing up straight, arms by your sides, feet hip width apart. Squat down and place your palms face down on the floor in front of you. Kick your legs behind you so you are in a push-up position. Pull your legs back under you into the squat position, keeping your palms face down on the floor. Stand and then jump in the air, bringing your arms over your head to reach for the ceiling. When you land, that is one full burpee. Remember to keep your core tight throughout the entire movement.
Pushups: Either regular or modified on your knees.
Crunches: Lay on your back. Place your hands behind your head with your finger tips touching your ears. Knees are bent. Perform a crunch by contracting your ab muscles and lifting your shoulders off the ground. You will be making the shape of a ‘C’ with your spine. Exhale when you perform the crunch. Inhale when you lower back down.
Squats: Start by standing up straight. Feet hip width apart. Core tight. Lower down into a squat position, focusing on pushing backward with your hips (like you are reaching for a chair with your rear) and making sure your knees do not push over your toes. Slowly stand back up.
Lunges
Tricep Dips: Find a chair (a sturdy one) or a coffee table or the ledge of a bathtub. Sit on said item. Place your hands beside your hips, grip the edge. With your arms as your anchor to the chair/table/bathtub, walk your feet out so that your hips and rear are no longer touching. Lower yourself down (aka a “dip”) to where your elbows form a 90 degree angle. Raise yourself back up. Core stays tight throughout the movement. You can either keep your knees bent (easier) or straighten your legs out (harder).
Mountain Climbers: Get back into the pushup position (plank position but your arms are completely straight). Bring your left knee in towards your chest. Return to start position. Repeat on right side. Repeat back and forth. Keep your core tight.
Sumo Squats: Start by standing up straight. Feet wider than hip width apart. Core tight. Lower down into a squat position (you will be squatting wide like a sumo wrestler), focusing on pushing backward with your hips (like you are reaching for a chair with your rear) and making sure your knees do not push over your toes. Slowly stand back up.
Jumping Jacks
Wall Sit: Find a sturdy wall. Place your back flat against the wall and slowly walk your feet out and lower your body down into a sitting position. Goal is to have a 90 degree angle at your knee and a 90 degree angle at your hip. Core tight!

Repeat 3 times through.

Cool Down: 5 minutes plus stretching!!

**As always, please consult with your physician prior to starting any exercise program!**

Let me know if you have any questions!! Either send me an email or leave me a comment!
