Happy Valentine’s Day!
Most of us in Charlotte have been cooped up for days thanks to winter storm Pax-anyone else have a little case of cabin fever?
Rain boots make the best snow shoes.
I caught up on a lot of movies I’d been wanting to see: Blue Jasmine, The Way, Way Back and The Internship. Three very different movies but all so entertaining in their own way. Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine was outstanding! I can’t believe she is 44-I’ll have some of what she is having. Thanks.
The snow was beautiful and I enjoyed the break from work and normal life responsibilities, but I am happy for things to get back to normal around here!
In case you want to extend your Valentine’s Day through the weekend, I made some delicious biscuits and put my heart shaped cookie cutter to use. I was actually inspired to make these from watching a cooking segment on a local news station! This was my first time making biscuits and they turned out great! They were just too cute not to share.
Surprise the one you love with these easy and tasty biscuits tomorrow morning!
Ingredients: (for 6 large biscuits)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 Tbsp. Sugar
3 Tbsp cold cubed butter
3/4 cup Buttermilk
Combine the dry ingredients and whisk together.
Then add butter and incorporate with either a pastry cutter or two knives. I used knives because I don’t have a pastry cutter.
Then add your milk and combine until the mixture forms a ball.
Roll out the dough onto a clean, floured surface. A tall glass makes a great rolling pin (hint hint)
Begin to cut biscuits.
They are the cutest ever!
I brushed them with milk before baking. It helps them get a nice golden brown color.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or so.
I served these with a little butter and honey, but clotted cream and apricot preserves would be oh so fancy. I also prepared cheesy slow scrambled eggs with crispy ham and green onion. You can find the recipe here.
Also with a mimosa. Snow days call for mimosas.
Have a wonderful weekend!
