Friends, I’d like you to meet Sara and Pam of Biscuits and Burlap. I’m thrilled to introduce them today —they are fellow near-Atlantans and we have collaborated in the past. But today’s post is because they are also going to be my first recipe contributors to the UDH!


I first met Sara and Pam when they reached out to me about a new blog design. We worked together for a few weeks before we came up with their new logo and color scheme, but by the end, I was really wowed by how nice they both were and how delicious their southern-style recipes looked. Here are just a few of the amazing ideas they have on their blog:

Blackberry BBQ Sauce
Grilled Peach Bourbon Cocktail
Shrimp and Grits
warm grilled peaches and ice cream
Grilled Peaches with Toasted Pecans and Vanilla Ice Cream

And as you saw in their intro above, Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes. Dude. MINI CHOCOLATE CHIP ANYTHING IS AWESOME. I can’t wait to throw a party and try these out.


But Why Food Bloggers Though?

As I’ve mentioned in another post recently, I haven’t been much of a cook over the years. But with the house coming together and finally having a kitchen worthy of cooking in (thinking of the old kitchen still makes me cringe), it’s becoming a more normal part of my routine and more of a thing I find myself talking about with friends and family. So while I am still honing my own foodie skills, this blog is ultimately about the long journey of me learning things as I go. I thought that if I’m trying to figure this stuff out anyway, I’m probably going to post about it and it would probably be a good idea if I also had some really cool recipes to share with all of you, too. So when I was brainstorming with Sara and Pam and they mentioned starting with some cocktail recipes to contribute, it seemed like a no-brainer. Especially since I am definitely, 100% going to be trying those out (maybe even recording the results to see if they really are that awesome… you know, for research).

Sara and Pam also aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty with power tools and renovation… so I can’t help but want to support some fellow badasses pursuing their passions.


Here is the first recipe they are going to be sharing tomorrow, so more on that next! In the meantime, you can learn more about Sara and Pam by visiting Biscuits and Burlap or hitting them up on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.


Please give them a warm welcome to the UDH team and check back in tomorrow for the recipe. ????

  1. First time commenter, and probably only because it’s my Friday and I’m a little drunk tbh, don’t judge (I don’t know if Irish Death beer in available in Georgia, but if it is, I would highly recommend that you get your hands on some). Anyhoodles, this is a lovely addition to your site. So many blogs have become commercialized to the point of seeming inauthentic and it’s nice to see not just the pretty pictures of the renovation, but the way that it impacts how you live in a tangible way. That aaah feeling when you go from hideous to a mess to something that feels so great to live your life in. I’m in the middle of a kitchen renovation myself, and even though I love cooking, when I have to spend time cleaning in order to cook, and cleaning in order to continue working afterwards, I am just buying a damn pizza and not messing around with anything that requires more effort than that. Your kitchen looks great and I’m glad you are now getting to enjoy all the work you’ve put in!

    1. Hi Keny!

      I’m definitely going to have to look up “Irish Death beer” now! I could go on and ON about authenticity (I have lots of sponsors lately and making sure I keep doing what I do without losing my own voice to brand guidelines is a unique challenge), but I totally get where you’re coming from. I ate pizza for many a meal while my kitchen turned into something worthwhile! I might have a few more changes to the kitchen coming up soon too. I’m so glad you took the time to finally comment! Hope to see your name on comments more often (especially if you have beer recommendations!!! I could go on and on about them).
