Fried Biscuits

I don’t recall exactly when my family started this little tradition. I just remember thinking it was a good one, and I enjoyed sitting on the kitchen island, watching and helping when I could.

What I do remember is that it was dad’s idea, and that it was a Saturday morning, as that was the morning we usually had a big breakfast, since Sundays were hurried and hassled as we headed to church. I’m certain that getting three kids under the age of 5 to church was no simple task, either!

At any rate, one Saturday morning daddy decided to fry some canned biscuits. The rest is history. I hadn’t eaten any in years, as they’re probably not the healthiest thing one could consume for breakfast, and then I got a wild hair this summer to make some over branding week. My parents, little sister, kid brother, my sister in law, and my niece and nephew, were here. I figured it would bring back some family fun and fond memories of days gone by.

And now, because I’m awesome (and because people have demanded the recipe), I’m sharing our little piece of family tradition with you. It’s so simple it’s ridiculous and I know you’re going to want to make these ASAP!

There are typically 10 biscuits per can. You can make them donut shaped by simply poking a hole in the middle, or you can slice the biscuits in half.

In a large pan, add 3 cups of vegetable oil.
When the oil is about 350 degrees, toss in as many biscuits as will fit in the pan. Flip about 2 minutes in, when they’re turning a pretty gold color. Set them on a paper towel to drain and then dredge in powdered sugar, or brown sugar, or coat them in melted chocolate. Viola! Done. Breakfast is served.

Happy Trails and Happy Cooking!

The view from here…

Fall is in the air.

The grass is beginning to turn.

It’s a far cry from the 100 degree temps I experienced in Texas last week (more on that coming soon, I promise)!

And I couldn’t be happier spending my days looking through the cows.

A day in the life…


I seriously live the best life. I get up and most days do whatever I want. Sometimes I do have writing assignments to make deadline, and sometimes there’s must-do ranch work. Like capture a bull from a one pasture and move him to another, or gather and sort horses, or gather bulls when their 60-days […]

I hope everyone is gearing up to have an awesome weekend. Avie came up sore this week because his hoof cracked/broke at a place where he has a scar on his hoof. I’m off of him for at least two weeks. I was bummed because the last barrel race in the series that’s been the […]

Chasing Cans

There have been quite a few barrel races in the past couple weeks, and checks won in two of my five runs – enough that the trips are paying for themselves, which is always a good thing! Because I fail at having people film me there are not videos of every run. We’ve been running […]

So I have these friends/relatives of the cowboy. They’re epic and awesome. And… wait… for… it… Legend…ary! They had a multicultural wedding of sorts, though they had a traditional Lakota Ceremony (and I was not able to photograph the ceremony) but I did get to do photos before they tied the knot. It was a […]

Photography Etiquette

With the invention of the internet, and digital photography, the world of photography has changed. Drastically. Whenever someone takes a photo, that photo is immediately protected under US Copyright Law. Under the Federal Copyright Act of 1976, photographs are protected by copyright from the moment the shutter closes. Just because it’s in the public domain […]

A June Wedding

If the low number of blog posts wasn’t an indication of how busy this summer has been, maybe this will be a clue: Here are my favorite photos, shot at a wedding in June. Yes. I said JUNE! But I suppose it’s better to share late than not share at all, so without further ado, […]
