Just a little trivia that I thought I would share with you. Alaska is 663,267 square miles. That is 2.469 times the size of Texas. That is 4.058 times the size of California. Image Source
This delicious bread is such a treat in our house. It is lightly sweet, soft and delicious. By the time I am done baking the second loaf, the first one is usually almost gone!
Biscuits and Gravy is a favorite dish around here – and made more often for “Breakfast for Dinner” than for actual breakfast! Here is how to make this simple partner for your biscuits.
The perfect biscuits for breakfast!
So begins our first in a series. Each week, I will be sharing a recipe as I take a virtual tour around the country, highlighting recipes and treats and tidbits from the featured state.

It happens every Thanksgiving or other holiday meal. What on earth do you do with the leftovers?! Well, here is my favorite thing to do with leftover mashed potatoes. Kartoffelpuffer!
I’m about to start a series of recipes! I’ll be working my way around the country, cooking dishes that represent each state!
