How to Make Biscuits
I first learned how to make biscuits at Chick-fil-a, but before that I had learned how to cook from my Mom. When I was very young, I had a very simple cookbook with pictures and easy instructions. It was a joy to make things that I could eat, and to create things with my own hands.
More than a decade later, I worked in fast food and learned some of the techniques used in making food at a high volume. While I prefer homemade recipes to fast food processes, I can still appreciate some of the systems that people use to cook for hundreds of people.
This video on making biscuits was created from a junction between homemade cooking and fast food techniques. The recipe is from the Fannie Farmer Cookbook, and the way I prepare the dough is from Chick-fil-a. Hopeful this video is both entertaining and helpful to you in making great homemade biscuits.
The 180 degree film rule
In the fall semester of 2012, I started college as a film student. Although I felt like a fish out of water for a while, I really enjoyed learning how to make better films. Of all the lessons I learned that year, the 180 degree rule was the hardest one for me to wrap my mind around. It took me several trial and error videos to finally understand how it works and what it is.
Knowing how hard it can be to understand, I made a video today about the 180 degree film rule. I hope you enjoy it!
The moment that made Starbucks
Today's video is all about Onward by Howard Schultz. I originally read the book because I was curious about the history of Starbucks, but I quickly discovered that this book is not a history book. This book is a great read for anyone who is looking for a purpose behind their business. It gives insight into how a person's interest in their work can influence both the success and the ethos of a company.
The Magnolia Silo District Marathon
Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. It's hard to believe that we are already in May of 2022. Time flies when you are having fun! Speaking of fun, recently I visited Waco, TX with my family for the 2022 Silo District Marathon.
It was a great vacation, and the weather was fine all weekend. We spent some time hanging out with my brother on Friday. Then on Saturday, mom, dad, Nick, Noelle, and Kaylee all ran the 5k. I cheered them on from the finish line, and then we all spent the rest of the day hanging out, and eating food.
The very next day, we got up early and walked over to Magnolia for the start of the Marathon. It was nice and cool, but still warm enough for shorts.
Overall, the race was really fun! I had a great time in Waco, and I was grateful for everyone who came out to put the marathon on.
Here's a video highlighting the week:
