So last week was exam week. Now it’s spring break. It is awesome. Exam week consists of 3 exams: histology, physiology, and genetics. Spring break consists of red wine, sitting on the charles eating lunch, making homemade cinnamon rolls, and these amazing chive, goat cheese biscuits.
These biscuits are amazing. No joke. Make them, now. They don’t take long, especially if you have a food processor.
In other news–relax. Relax the crap out of life. It’s pretty good. Also, go to the gym, or go for a walk, or do something that requires moving. Studying will be there and that extra 1.5-2 hours isn’t going to make a difference. It’s just not. Also! Ignore the small things in life that irritate you…your cackling hobo that walks up and down your street at 2AM every morning making a noise that reminds you death when you wake up, the guy at the gym that stole your bench even though you were CLEARLY still using it, sometimes your loved ones, sometimes your hair, sometimes the annoying calls from CVS reminding you to pick up a prescription even though you know when you get there it won’t be ready…all of those things will irritate you every once in a while..meh, let it go. Locus of control and all that crap. Seriously though, ain’t nobody got time for that.
Okay! BISCUITS! And other pictures from the past semester.

Goat Cheese Chive Biscuits
Modified from JoytheBaker
3 cups all purpose flour (2 whole wheat pastry flours and 1 cup All purpose flour is what I used)
3/4 cups butter
3/4 cup greek yogurt or sour cream
1 tbsp sugar
2.5 tsp. baking powder
0.5 tsp baking soda
0.5 tsp salt
0.25 tsp black pepper
1 egg beaten
3 tbsp cold water
0.33 cup chopped chives
0.75 cup goat cheese crumbled
1 beaten egg, for egg wash
Topping [optional]: salt, black pepper, paprika, rosemary mix ’em together.
In your food processor, cut flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt/sour cream, egg, and water. Add that too the flour mixture until it JUST comes together. Add in the chives and goat cheese and knead about 10-15 times.
Then roll it out on a floured surface to about 1 inch thick…and use whatever you have that’s round [like a ramekin] to cut out the biscuits. Put them on a tray lined with parchment paper, and coat each one in the egg wash and the topping mixture lightly.
Bake them at 400F for 10 minutes. I froze what I didn’t eat so I can have them later 🙂
