2017 Haircolor Trends

Oh, I miss my years of many haircolors.  Mine will hardly accept any color now, so it seems that time has past, but I love some of the new trends emerging.  The black and silver, for one!  That might just be me wanting to accept my natural "highlights" though.

So which would you try?

Charly's Biscuits

I was delighted when my friend Charly shared this photo and recipe of southern goodness!  Honestly I didn't know such flaky homemade biscuits were achievable.  Thankfully she allowed me to publish it here, so I'll always be able to find this recipe and Pin it, too!

Charly's Biscuits

2 C flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2-3/4 tsp course salt
--Mix well. 

6 Tbsp cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
--Incorporate into dry mix.

3/4 C Whole milk
--Mix with a rubber spatula or wood spoon until just moistened.
--Roll out onto floured surface 1/4-1/2" thick, cut with biscuit cutter, place on parchment papered cookie sheet and bake in a 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes. 

--The biggest secret is, do not overwork the dough!
