Cornmeal Buttermilk Biscuits


There is nothing more Thanksgiving to me than cornbread. I like to have it on my table every year or some sort of cornmeal or corn dish as a substitute. I didn’t have any clear idea of what I wanted to do this year with the cornbread. Last year I didn’t make cornbread because I…

The Easiest Buttermilk Biscuits {in the history of all time}


A few years ago my friend and her then-husband figured out that if you make cookie dough, roll the dough into balls and then freeze the balls of dough, you can make and eat fresh baked cookies every night. And they did. And she gained weight from it. Her words; not mine. I didn’t notice….

{made from scratch} Biscuits and Gravy


I felt foolish when I announced to my friend that I made biscuits and gravy similar to that of which her grandma had made for us when we were in high school and she informed me that her family makes bacon gravy, not sausage gravy. I had never heard of bacon gravy! Admittedly, the recipe…

Easy Biscuits and Gravy Bake


  The first time I ever ate biscuits and gravy was in high school. It was the first time I’d ever really heard of or paid much attention to the dish and didn’t know it would eventually become a breakfast favorite of mine. One of my high school friends had been born in Texas; they…

Thanksgiving Day Bacon and Biscuit Dressing


I’m afraid the pictures for this dressing do the recipe no justice. But you’ll have to trust me on the fact that any dressing recipe made out of biscuits and bacon is going to rock your world. This one rocked mine. My grandma sent me a recipe that she clipped from Penzey’s magazine. I could…

Bacon, Cheese and Poppy Seed Biscuits with Sage


In the Thanksgiving edition of Food Network Magazine there was a Mix & Match Biscuit recipe which is where I created the biscuit for this year’s Thanksgiving. It was rolls versus biscuits and my dad chose biscuits and the recipe. He dictated that the biscuits must have bacon and cheese and said that I could…

Buttermilk Biscuits


I have always been a big biscuit fan. Even as a little kid I remember going to McDonald’s and opting for the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit sandwich when everyone else was ordering Egg McMuffin sandwiches. It’s something about the density and the buttery goodness that would prompt me to choose a biscuit over an…

Angel Biscuits


Not that you need an excuse to make some biscuits, but I have been waiting for an excuse to make these biscuits for a long time. The original recipe was sent to me by my grandma. I have long since misplaced the recipe but the draft has been waiting for me to finish for at…

Chipotle Cheddar Scones


I’m always on the lookout for ways to use up opened items in my fridge. Right now I have a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I have never seen a recipe that calls for more than three peppers at one time. And I’m guessing a can contains  anywhere from 6 to 10 peppers….

Blue Cheese and Bacon Scones


After a quick jaunt to the Oregon coast earlier this week where I ran into a pretty tasty Blue Cheese and Bacon Scone, I decided to try making them at home. I found what seemed like a good recipe at yankeemagazine.com. The recipe was perfect for me as I had some heavy cream I wanted…

Herb Cheddar Biscuits


I made these biscuits for Christmas Eve dinner. The theme? Comfort food. My dad said these biscuits are restaurant-worthy. I tend to agree with him. The original recipe was clipped from the Milwaukee-Journal Sentinel and sent to me by my grandma, in an article featuring do-it-yourself butter. Eat these biscuits with homemade butter or clotted…

Drop Dumplings


I first had drop dumplings served in beef and gravy and haven’t had these since. I prefer these dumplings to egg-based dumplings because these remind me of a biscuit or bread. I served them in Chicken Fricassee. They go well in any meat served in gravy as you could probably cook them right in the…

Bacon Cheddar Biscuits


This is a Herb Cheddar Biscuits recipe clipped from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel by Grandma Mo. As I’ve already made Cheddar-Thyme Scones, I decided to tweak the recipe to use up the bacon in the fridge. Homemade Butter and Clotted Cream are the other two recipes accompanying the biscuit recipe on the page, both of which…

Popovers


Popovers, in my opinion, are like pancakes in the shape of a muffin. They have almost a croissant like flaky outside, hollow middle, and an eggy, pancake like interior that clings to the flaky crust. And they’re delicious. I estimate that it’s been about 10 years since I’ve made popovers. Because Mom’s in town and…

Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits


If you’ve ever eaten at Red Lobster then I’m sure you’ll appreciate these biscuits which are supposed to imitate the biscuits Red Lobster serves before your food arrives.
