The kids went back to school yesterday.


I did as every mom does after a solid 10 days with no break.

I got a spray tan and then drove an hour to the nearest Whole Foods for coconut flour tortilla chips and a bag of vegan peanut butter M&Ms.

Boyfriend was all, “You go to the coffee shop to work this morning?”


Yeah, totally.

Anyway, I knocked out, like, 10 recipes last week while they were home and asking a billion questions every minute of the day so you better believe I have a yoga class scheduled this morning and then plan to spend at least 3 hours strolling around the library.

Might even sit in my car and watch Instagram stories without interruption for awhile before driving home.

These are seriously so easy.

Take your leftover Easter ham and slice it as thin as you can. Or buy some ham from the deli, whatever.

You’re going to split apart some refrigerated canned biscuits, pile the ham on the bottoms, put some cheese (I use swiss) on top of that, and then place the top of the biscuit back on. Brush it with butter, bake until golden brown, and then drizzle with honey.

I make these over and over. If we have ham and biscuits in the fridge, these are getting made. They’re being put in lunches, they’re a weekend breakfast, they are perfect for any time of day

Everyone always loves them, they always argue over the leftovers (if there are any), and they seriously can’t be any easier. Maybe 15 minutes to prep, plus another 15 to bake.
