Strawberry Shortcake in Seagrove by the Seashore.

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.
So here's me with my ingredients and my trusty cookbook...I'm thinking about naming it....

This is mom..... :) I should point out that I put off my little baking excursion till after dinner. And the afore mentioned biscuit cutting was taking longer than expected and we were all kinda tired from a hard day of sun bathing Mom was kinda tired and ready for dessert to be done so she could go to bed.

Aaaaand this is why you always bake in your own kitchen.....whipping cream with an egg beater is not :P



And the Other After :)

Bon Appetit! The recipe is easy to find online and it's soooooooo yummy! The biscuit was the perfect sweetness, So ladies and gents, here's the first of many Stupid Good posts :)

Happy Eating,
