Honest Biscuits was founded by Art Stone who was first introduced to the art of making biscuits by his grandmother. And since those lessons in the kitchen in North Carolina, Stone has brought his love of biscuits to Seattle, putting a premium on the freshest local ingredients and fresh new ideas for an old country favorite.
For example, perhaps try a toasted tomato pesto cheese croissant and a house special, the Flora Forager—cardamom and rose syrups and seltzer on ice. The croissant entices with a pizza-like aroma and follows through as buttery and flaky with the right amount of tang and herbaceousness from the tomato, pesto, and cheese. And the Flora Forager is just sweet enough to bring you back to those early summer days of selling lemonade for a nickel with the sophistication in flavor to help you realize how much, with the right marketing strategy, you could sell that lemonade for now.
I’m always on the hunt for new and undiscovered printing plates. If I have some ink and canvas and find a sweet chunk of metal in the street, I usually try to make a print. I’ve converted my Subaru Forester into a “print mobile” equipped with paint mixers and a drying rack which has become my studio.

While the ingredients in Mike’s fine brines appear simple, the results are not. One need taste no further than Callahan’s Black Pepper Chipotle to appreciate the intricacies of a simply designed but stellarly executed hot sauce. Callahan’s Black Pepper Chipotle is the perfect combination of sweet, smoky, and spicy. While the initial sweetness draws you in, the smokiness and vinegar tanginess build around the edges, and the spice sneaks in for the finish. All these qualities build evenly to a point without ever becoming overpowering.
Buy a Lady a Drink is an opportunity to buy one of three limited-edition Stella Artois chalices, each designed by a local artist from three countries on three different continents: Brazil, Cambodia, and Uganda. For each chalice purchased, Stella Artois will donate $6.25 to Water.org, which is enough to provide clean drinking water for one person for five years.
The initial charm of Krista’s Soft Pretzel Baking Mix is its user-friendliness. While experience never hurts in the kitchen, anyone can jump into this baking kit, with its simple ingredients and easy to follow instructions, and be mixing, rolling, twisting, and baking in no time—the longest portion of the entire process is allowing the pretzel dough thirty 30 minutes to rise. Also, the kit provides almost everything you need—the only ingredients bakers need to bring to the table are a cup of warm water and a little vegetable oil and baking soda.
A more surprising characteristic of Old Scoundrel, which comes out after the first sip, is a distinct hoppiness. With IBUs advertised at 40, it is surprising to find the flavor of hops on the finish so explicit. This could be due to the use of Cascade hops, as advertised on the bottle. But while the obviousness of the hops is surprising, this is well balanced against the malt and sweetness. And now Old Scoundrel’s full profile is unshrouded: an inviting and reserved demeanor gives way to a big-mouthed beer with plenty to say and leaving you with plenty to think about.
