I hardly know where to start! In the last two weeks we have had chicken pox, colds and the flu in our house. This means I haven’t had a lot of time to write, but I HAVE had a lot of time to cook, so there will be a lot of posts in the upcoming days!
We recently made homemade butter and were THRILLED with the results. One of the by products from butter is fresh buttermilk. Many years ago I liked buttermilk biscuits but we haven’t had any in years. I was inspired by the fresh buttermilk though so I altered and fussed and came up with these. They were very good! Denser than I remember buttermilk biscuits to be, but they rose, they were fluffy and they were gone in the blink of an eye!
