TWD Basic Biscuits
Years ago I was going to the hospital to have a baby, number five or six, I don't remember. I asked Hubby if he wanted to learn how to make a few simple dishes. His answer was--do you want to learn how to change the oil in the car? I didn't. So I did the cooking and hubby did outside stuff. It worked out fine for 35 years.
But seasons in our life change, kids are gone and Hubby has more time. He has been a great help in the kitchen, I have had health problems, he has stepped right in and been so helpful. I do have the best husband.
What does this have to do with Dories Basic Biscuits?? Hubby wanted to learn to make Biscuits and Gravy--the ultimate male comfort food. I really didn't care to perfect it so he went to work. I gave him Dories Basic Biscuit recipe, he read it and reread it. I watched over his shoulder just a bit and gave him a few pointers. I'm happy to say that Hubby now makes perfect Buttermilk Biscuits. We have tried several recipes but we always come back to Dories Basic Biscuit.
It comes together in minutes and is consistently delicious. Hubby also has Sausage Gravy perfected, but it is not so photogenic. The boys all agree it is delicious, and the girls don't mind it either.
So when I see a nice plate of biscuits on the table I think of a loving hubby who was willing to step outside his comfort zone and learn something new. For the record--I have not learned how to change the oil in the car. But I do know how to drive thru Jiffy Lube!
Thanks for letting me ramble. The purpose of my blog is not only sharing yummy recipes but also sharing stories that my children and grandchildren may someday enjoy. Don't you wish you knew more about your father or grandfather?
The complete recipe for Basic Biscuits will be on Jennifer's Blog, Cooking For Comfort. Or just purchase Dories book, it will become your kitchen friend.
