    Kate’s Kitchen- Sausage & Biscuits

    I love a good basic meal; one with a couple ingredients that are easy to fetch from the farm. Up here on Gatski Mountain, there’s abundant milk, butter and of course, sausage.  Sausage & Biscuits is a favorite. I like to serve it with some seasonal greens sauteed in garlic. I understand that Sausage & Biscuits is an old world

Or… maybe it’s because over at Gatski Metal we’re busy bees preparing for the Buyers Market of American Craft Show this weekend. Either way- I seem to have a lot of extra zip .
