The first recipe of the blog is Martha Stewart's Baking Powder Biscuits, the Strawberry Shortcake variation. :) Mom and I whipped it up while we were on vacation in Florida. I learned two very important lessons while making this recipe. Lesson #1- Never bake a new recipe in a strange kitchen, Lesson #2- Never make biscuits without a pastry blender....drink blenders were made for frozen concoctions...not cutting butter into flour and Lesson #3- when making biscuits you need a biscuit cutter. End of story,. Nothing else works. Well it works but it takes ages and ages to use a sharp knife to cut a million circles and Martha says it's important to use a sharp biscuit cutter so you can't just use an inverted juice glass, but I also can't cut perfect circles *huge breath*.....just buy a biscuit cutter, trust me.
Aaaaand this is why you always bake in your own kitchen.....whipping cream with an egg beater is not exactly...um....efficient. :P
And the Other After :)
