Nick’s Dad is the Biscuit Master.
We talked about possibly making pancakes this morning, but with Nick and Bob involved, biscuits almost always win.
And I got a great biscuit lesson! There were definitely things I wasn’t doing before, and I got some of Biscuit Bob’s great tips to use from now on with my own biscuit baking.
What is it about biscuits right out of the oven?
It just makes the morning feel magical, doesn’t it? All of a sudden, this rainy Tuesday morning felt more like a Saturday – which just made it a bit sad that I had to go to work – but either way!
Fresh biscuits for breakfast are one of my favorite ways to start the day.
I had mine with some Crofter’s jam + honey butter, plus some strawberries we split between the three of us.
But the best part about learning how to make biscuits is that Bob is teaching me how to make amazing biscuits using my senses – not a recipe. Yes, we basically know how much flour and butter we used, but we didn’t measure anything this morning.
I’m learning how to tell by the look and feel of the dough if they need something else or if they’re ready to go in the oven.
And that’s the neatest thing. He learned by watching his dad make biscuits, and now I’m learning from watching him.
What a great thing to pass on in the family.
*I’m going to pick up Maggie today!!!! We were so lonely last night without her :(
Does your family have any special recipes, dishes, or techniques that are passed on to the next generation?
