The other morning after the kids were all dropped off at school, Denine and I got together to work through our editorial calendar. As we sat at our desks, drinking our chocolate avocado smoothies we began working on our schedule of upcoming posts. We noticed that our Baking Powder Biscuit recipe had not been shared and she was wondering why we were holding on to it?
It’s a great biscuit recipe and she knows that during the winter, I make this recipe at least once a week. I explained to her that this little biscuit recipe was giving me crazy writer’s block. When it comes it recipe posts like this one, I tend to think less is more. In my opinion, this is the “Less is More” biscuit. A few pantry ingredients and a minimal amount of time makes for a yummy biscuit that goes perfect with soup and stew.
Now I know I should go on, but I can’t. My writers block is so awful that this post must go as is. (And my sister is going to kill me when she sees it.) Please don’t let this be a reflection of how this family favorite biscuits will taste, because the really are quite delicious!
