I got a comment!!!! Day 5 baking knocked out two recipes

I got a comment on my blog today!!! It was so nice to know that I have readers, it made my week thank you. (Lisa@runningoutofwine)

Holy crap, I saw this recipe and I had to make it. I cannot stop eating it!!! I know this is a baking-running blog but this is the best salad I have EVER had.  Actually, it is a slaw, Rainbow Slaw. I got the recipe off of Theskinnyconfidential.  It is purple cabbage, green cabbage, green onion, green pepper, yellow pepper and carrots with a tahini, olive oil, sea salt, lemon juice and water dressing.  Mix it all together and heaven I'm telling you it is addictive.
 
Yesterday, I took the day off of baking, because I knew I was doubling up today.  We are having breakfast for dinner so I am making biscuits and also peanut butter cookies.
We have not had brinner in a long time so I took advantage of the Simple Drop Biscuit recipe. Zachary is a meat and potatoes kinda person.  So i made bacon and sausage gravy. 
The biscuit recipe was so easy and they turned out perfect.
The recipe called for all purpose white flour, buttermilk, melted butter, salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder.
I really enjoy this cookbook. It includes tips for most of the recipes. For this recipe it called for putting the cold buttermilk in the melted butter which created lumps. It lets you know that that is supposed to happen. The clumps resemble the small buts of cold butter in biscuits prepared the traditional ways.
They turned out perfect!!! They were light and fluffy. 
I look forward to baking everyday, it is so much fun to create these treats.  
I also made peanut butter cookies...to die for.

Running, I am so sad I still cannot run. I'm really trying to be positive about the situation. I've been doing a lot of strength training and non-impact cardio.  Patience is a virtue...

Random thought-Have any of you tried IBOTTA?  I started using it and got $9.00 back so far just for buying what I usually buy, in less than a week.
