We are well into the time of year that deserves nights filled with soups and stews.

After surviving two Polar vortex-filled winters in the frozen tundra that was Northern New York, this DC metro area has offered us a kinder shade of cold. But it is no Hawaii, by a long stretch.

My friends know that I am beginning to take personally the bitter cold that follows me wherever we move to call home. When winter hits in our new home there are "never-before-seen" cold events that occur. Thundersnows in Kansas, snow piles and frigid cold not seen in 30 years in New York, and now over 2 feet of snow (and more thundersnows) in about 36 hours just last month here in DC.

After a few years of this I am seeing a pattern in myself during these cold months... I make savory breads. There is nothing more comforting than a bowl full of soup, stew, or chili with a hand full of savory gluten-free bread alongside. This seems to be the way I cope. Here's more proof.

This gluten-free sour cream and onion biscuit was born this past weekend during an especially crazy snow and ice-filled cold snap. Luckily all of the white stuff has melted away in this weather-fickle place but the biscuit recipe remains!

If Uncle Sam moves us to Hawaii and it snows, we'll know for sure it's me.
