#NaBloPoMo – Day 2


It’s Day 2 and I’m back at it again with a fresh blog! What a streak!

Watch Mario Eat: Apple Cheddar Biscuits


Today’s edition of Sunday Brunch featured a recipe for Apple Cheddar Biscuits. This is the second week the chef has prepared an apple dish, and I’m not so sure Mario was happy about it. If you don’t know by now, Mario loves ooey, gooey dishes and doesn’t care much for dry pasties. But, like the pro that he is, he kept his personal feelings in check and ate the whole thing. 

Here’s our favorite journalist digging deeper into the dish:
