Delicious Chicken Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

One of the best parts about traveling is getting the opportunity to try new things, especially new foods. When we travel, we always try to eat like a local. I’m constantly researching restaurants that have more than just a good review, I want to eat at the places that the locals enjoy too.

The only downside to eating all the delicious food while traveling is that I always come home craving food from my travels. As the Fabulously Frugal Traveling Mom, I know that it’s always more cost effective to cook my own food when I can. That’s why I always spend some time in the kitchen cooking up my favorite meals when I get home from vacation.

I couldn’t have gotten luckier if I tried.
