basic sunday morning biscuits

Made some homemade biscuits for us on a sunday morning. Husband claimed they were the best biscuits he's ever tried. We cooked up some scrambled organic eggs then spread some butter and jam on the piping hot biscuits and hoovered it all in 5 seconds flat.


- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoon butter, cubed
- 1 cup heavy cream


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. In an electric mixing bowl fitted with a paddle mixer, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cubed butter and mix in low medium speed for about 4 minutes, until mix looks like cornmeal. Put the speed to low and add 1 cup of heavy cream and mix just until combined.
3. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter, or in this case, I used an upside down cup.
3. Place in baking pan and cook for about 20 minutes or until the top portion is golden brown.

Biscuit Berry Cobbler

This sweet and juicy summer berry cobbler was out of this world! It's that time of the month again and I've been craving something super yummy and sweet. I didn't want the usual cake or cupcake...I wanted something berry-ish and tart. So I dug out my all time favorite dessert book, The Craft of Baking (a lovely gift from a friend), and got down to business. If you have a major sweet tooth like me, you definitely need to get a copy of this book.

Chicken + Bok Choy Soup Noodle

This dinner was sort of inspired by having random bits of veggies that needed to quickly be used or be tossed in the garbage. The broth is chicken stock (boiled from chicken hind quarters) and then I added organic white miso paste to flavor the broth a bit more. Added a splash of soy sauce, shredded chicken, veggies and cook. Put noodle in plate first and spoon soup over it.
