cooking sausage gravy and biscuits from scratch is something that's long been on my cooking bucket list. it's one of my favorite breakfasts to order when dining out, and i've had it range from insanely good to a pile of glue.
this is the recipe i used for the biscuits and here's what i followed for the gravy (although i used a combination of half and half and skim milk).* i have to say that they turned out awesome. and although anything even slightly resembling a roux has usually terrified me in the kitchen, this one was really easy.

that was a definite success, but we also tried to grill calzones this weekend and...let's just say that we need to refine that technique before i'd call it a success. or edible.
so there were some hits and misses for sure in recent days.

in other news, i'm off to asheville today to visit my best friend from college and her husband and two little girls. i can't wait!
hope you all have a great fourth!
*the link doesn't seem to be working at the moment, but it was a pound of breakfast sausage (we used pork), two tablespoons of flour and two cups of milk.
