BISCUITS....O HONEY


Aren't these the most beautiful biscuits you've ever seen ?
meee, too.
I just want to dive in with both feet and eat every single one of them,
plus all the crumbs.

LORRAINE at With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart Blog
made these biscuits and you can go HERE to get her amazing recipe
and to view all her WONDERFUL photos.
"Thanks so much for letting me use a photo of your pretty biscuits
and sharing the recipe on your blog."
 

 I love adding buttermilk or sour cream to my biscuits...

REAL buttermilk is delicious in biscuits but if you don't have any, you can use the old milk with a little lemon juice or
vinegar trick.... and it's almost as good.

The REAL THING just seems to make the biscuits a little lighter and a little more tasty.

sometimes I make my
homemade biscuits and bake them up in a CAST IRON SKILLET.

 
I LOVE trying new recipes and THESE were delicious...
out of COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE


...just look at all that luscious cheese and all that BLACK PEPPER..
some of the best tasting biscuits I've EVER tasted.

If you want a sassy biscuit "to write home about",
go RIGHT HERE for the awesome recipe...
I PROMISE they will be delicious.


 I made biscuits this morning using BISQUICK Biscuit Mix
and added about a tablespoon  of SOUR CREAM to the dough.

Into the oven at 425 for about 8 minutes..
no rolling, no cutting..no mess..
just drop by spoonful onto your cookie sheet
and WALLA...great biscuits.

very fast, very good and I always use the 
HEART SMART BISQUICK.
I keep it on hand (in the freezer to keep it fresh) because so many times we are hungry for a biscuit and just a little milk and they are ready to bake.


While they were baking, I set up a neat little
"butter 'em and get the jelly"  station.


We sure have enjoyed this
WILD MAINE BLUEBERRY SPREAD
that our girl brought us from their summer trip.


I still love my little bunny lamp I bought 4 or 5 years ago at Cracker Barrel.

He is a perfect night light for our kitchen...

let's see....I have a night light in ALL our rooms except the bedroom.

Like candles, I love night lights.

"come on, come on, biscuits...we're hungry.


YUM ....

does EVERYone think biscuits are PRETTY..??


or just ME ?



and, well......
I'm sure it's against SOME law to have a biscuit without a cup or two or three
of DUNKIN DONUTS coffee. 

Do you have a favorite biscuit recipe ?
Please share as I LUV trying new recipes.

Something New and I'm In Love...

Hello, friends,

Do you ever get too old to get excited about "something new"..?
I THINK NOT..!






As some of my friends might know, any thing in BLACK & WHITE

 makes my heart sing,
                
sits my feet a'dancin'
                
 and  squeal just a little bit......

and when my daughter came over with a present for me
and it was this AWESOME
MANTEL SCARF, in black and white with beautiful black tassels dripping off it,
I just about fainted.....*thud
 

It's so perfect for my mantel and for my room,
I can't believe it.

You know how, sometimes, your room is just nearly the way you had in mind,
but......not quite.?
You need SOMEthing...no matter how large or how small to add the
pizzazz you are searching for.

piz·zazz... glamour , magic, magnetism, oomph, charm (or pizazz), seductiveness, witchery ..


Well, this mantel scarf is bringing my room waaay up to where I want it.
How can something this small add such OOMPH ?

When we are able to repaint,  I'm going to be pretty much finished with this room...
WAIT....what ???
....are we ever "finished" with decorating...?


The reverse side.....the sweetest hounds tooth.
so smart...so classic...so SWEET 


"Stacy...you KNEW I would love it....but did you know how MUCH..?"

 ♥ Thank you, sweet girl ♥
I love you.
