Back At It

I’m back :-)

These…

… are the best biscuits ever.  With the holidays approaching, you might just need a biscuit recipe… and it would be handy if you had the very best recipe, wouldn’t it?!  At the bottom, I will share. But first some other stuff.

I recently posted on Facebook my sincere appreciation for the logging truck drivers who frequent our road.  They are so kind to us- making room on our crazy road to make sure we feel safe.   That said, not only do logging trucks drive down the grade…

… but so do mobile homes…

(look close, that’s a triple wide on that trailer!) They did close the road for that little adventure… there wasn’t extra room for traffic!

A couple weeks ago we were in town with some time to spare, so we went to the lake… DSC_0537

And I took this picture of the kids…

And I just downloaded it off my camera… And I like it!  It depicts several things:

1. their personalities
2. their relationships
3. the stages they’re each at right now.

OK. Recipe. Named “Linda’s Biscuits” after guess who?! Linda!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

First, mix:
1 pkg (2 1/4 tsps) active dry yeast with
1/2 cup warm water
Let yeast and water sit until foamy about 10 minutes then add:
2 cups buttermilk (I use sour’d milk because I never have buttermilk!)

In a separate bowl, mix together:
5-6 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
3 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
mix together.  mix in:
3/4 cup shortening (I use butter and it works well)

Add yeast mixture to flour mixture.  Roll out dough, cut out biscuits, bake 12-15 minutes.
serves: 24

Enjoy!

  1. Omigosh! Why is a triple wide on that road??? If it’s coming down, it must have gone up at another time! What about the corner? I truly cannot imagine that particular “delivery.”

    As for your photo of the kids at the Lake, I love how you point out what the photo shows about them. Love it!

    As for biscuits, I don’t make them anymore; I would just eat them! (I do buy the Red Lobster cheesy biscuit mix to bake up with some tilapia that Rod likes. I eat them, too…not good.)



  2. Nice to see you again, my friend. :-) Great picture of the kids. I WILL be making the biscuits (even though I already have waaaay too many biscuit recipes) {Can one have TOO many biscuit recipes??? I hope not! } Love to you all!



  3. Good to hear from you and thanks for the recipe. I don’t make biscuits anymore either since we would eat them! Can’t believe the triple-wide going up that road, or even logging trucks for that matter – it’s a different life up there that’s for sure. Loved the lake picture of our ever-changing little ones. Just wish you weren’t so far away.
