I’ve been away for a while, but have a whole new approach to my blogs for you. With the blessings of MOTHER, and my wonderful editor Heidi, we have decided to do recipes with step by step photos. This first one will be an easy one, Baking Powder Biscuits, but the results will be fabulous. Everyone loves a hot biscuit, slathered with butter. My mouth is watering just thinking about this. In this new approach, you will be able to see (almost) each step, starting with the ingredients, the mixing, cutting, and baking. Also, I feel this is a more personal approach, because you will walk with me through the entire process. You will get everything but the heat of the oven and the smell of baking biscuits.

Let's begin with the ingredients:


1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup butter, chilled & cubed
1 cup buttermilk


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, place the flours, cornstarch, baking powder and soda, and salt. Stir.
