Oh, but My Buttermilk Slap Biscuits! Though, these days, yes, I can slap them together and yes, they are, I am told, slap-me good, that's really where it all began for me - Bread & Comfort! Remember, I did not cook until recent years. Like most of my guests, I was a hard-at-working mom, so there was little to no time for the traditional role, as mom. But, I always wanted to be that mom who baked biscuits, pies, cakes and Sunday Breakfasts - the kind that invokes warm memories for my child, my grandchildren and generations to come!
My Best Ever Buttermilk Biscuits
And when I knew I would finally have my bed & breakfast, I set out to make from scratch, The Best Buttermilk Biscuits Ever! I read books and articles; I watched videos and cooking shows; I tested and compared recipes, the pros, the cons, etc. And, well, I must give kudos to an old woman, out in the mid-west, looked to be somewhere very cold, whom shared (by video) her biscuit-making process. I absolutely loved her kitchen, the real deal, not all modern, made up and perfect, but used, “lived in,” warn and real! Though, she made her biscuits in a cast iron skillet, she hand tossed everything to form drop biscuits. So, that is where I began!
The idea - in anything I do - is to make it memorable! While every meal is prepared with thoughtfulness and for the love of it, I will say that my guests were particularly excited about my biscuits - light, fluffy, melt-in-ya-mouth good, always served hot out of the oven, slathered in softened butter and topped with raw honey, black molasses or my fresh-made strawberry preserves. [yeah, I'm showing off, now] But, Oooooooom! #SlapBiscuits, #ThingsThatMakeYouGoOom
