Kitchen Road Trip: Arkansas

<photo>

This week, we’re taking Kitchen Road Trip to Arkansas. My only memory of Arkansas is stopping there, briefly, during a road trip. Someone in my family figured out there was a town named Brinkley (my last name!) along the highway and we decided spontaneously to stop there. It was at night, so we only stayed long enough to eat a quick dinner, take a picture in front of a sign with our name on it and get stopped by quite possibly the longest, slowest train in the world. Though I didn’t get to explore any of Little Rock, Fayetteville or the back country, it still counts as a state visit by my standards. Although, I’d like to go back and have some of the culinary experiences that Arkansas is known for — watermelon, barbecue, cornbread, purple milkshakes… Well, I’m not so sure about that last one, but my friend Emmie tells me it’s true. Many thanks for your help on this one, Em! // Susannah

The Biscuit Report // No. 2

TGIF, y’all! It’s been a good week for me. I had a few client meetings and I’ve been working on some fun projects, too. On Wednesday I got to reunite with my mom, who’s been in Atlanta for a week. I baked a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for her, but it royally flopped (though it still tasted fantastic). I’ll just have to try that again, I guess! I’ve also been designing a new, better look for this blog, too, and I hope to unveil it soon! I’m also finishing editing some of my photos from D.C. which will finally be ready for me to share sometime next week. In the meantime, here’s a few of the things I loved this week. // susannah
