.Brilliant, Buttery Biscuits and a Bit of Babbling.

This post could also alternately be titled I Love my Best Friend's Biscuits! Ha! {grin}


And I really do. My best friend Bethany (if she had a blog I would point you there, but she doesn't) gave me a recipe for the most brilliant, buttery biscuits I have ever bitten.

(Okay, I will stop with the alliteration. I am feeling silly!)

They are seriously amazing and terribly unhealthy, but that has not stopped me from baking them over and over. {sigh} Her secret is to keep the butter in large chunks when mixing the dough; that way the biscuits will bake with those lovely, buttery, flaky layers that we all look for in a great biscuit. I have discovered that the less I work the dough, the lighter and flakier my biscuits turn out. I have made this recipe for both sweet and savory recipes - from chicken and biscuits to strawberries and whipped cream over biscuits. However, my favorite way to eat these is warm out of the oven with honey drizzled on top. Mmmmm. Bethany also tells me that adding some garlic and cheddar cheese into the dough will turn these into biscuits similar to the cheddar bay ones served at Red Lobster. If you are interested in this great (and easy) recipe click here.

Thank you for all of the interest and encouragement shown regarding my blog hop Momentous Monday. I am really excited for it to kick off next Monday. Please spread the word on your blog and if you are going to join feel free to add the button to your sidebar. (You can get the code for the button by scrolling to the bottom of my left hand sidebar.)

And speaking of buttons thanks for grabbing my new A Moment Cherished blog button! It makes me smile to read your blog and see my little button featured there. {grin}

We are getting back into the swing of things this week after all being sick with the stomach bug last. It rained this morning, but now it has cleared off and is a bit humid even. Cadi and I had a great morning doing school. She impresses me so with her reading and her love for learning. What a little blessing she is. Our video camera died a few years back. There is so much I wish I could capture - Cadi reading, Scotty's cute little walk and sweet words, etc. Maybe someday. My still camera is pretty great at capturing moments right now. {grin}

I hope you have a blessed Tuesday. Your comments are such a blessing to me - thank you for taking the time to read my words and encourage my heart.

PS ~Welcome to all of the visitors from Lynette's blog! I am so glad to have you here as a guest at A Moment Cherished. Feel free to have a cup of coffee with me and look around. I love to meet other passionate mommies! I am starting a new blog hop that you can read all about below. And I would so love to have you join us. You have brightened my day by visiting - thanks! {grin}

I make some biscuits like that with the butter, cheddar and garlic. they are AMAZING! I especially love to make them and eat them with a good homemade soup. . . like ham & potato, or beef stew or something like that. YUM! Anyway, I don't roll my out and cut them... I just barely mix them and them drop them by the spoonful onto my baking sheet. Then I spread a little butter on the top right when they first come out of the oven.

Oh my those biscuits look delicious! I just asked my hubby if we could go have breakfast for supper tonight while Joy is in dance class and he said yes! Yay!

Blessings to you, Tiffany!

I've come to visit from Lynette's blog! I have to tell that where I come from biscuits are what you call cookies, and what you call biscuits, we call scones! I love to make both!

Found you through Lynette. I'm following now. I also homeschool, but I'm not a from scratch biscuit-maker, yet.

Linda said...

Hello Tiffany...I am Lynnette's Mom and I have become your follower today. (:>)

What a lovely family you have! I love that all of your clothes are coordinated in the pictures.

I love blogging and meeting nice people like you out here in blogland...but I especially love meeting sisters in Christ and those who are living for the Lord. We will all meet someday in heaven....and like you have said, this life is like a vapor which vanishes.

So...while we are here we should cherish the moments and appreciate all that God has given us huh? I totally agree with you!!!

I may try to join in on some of the Monday blogs, so I will add my name. But I never know when this ancient computer is going to cooperate. (:>)

Loved the delicious looking biscuts. I will try them. Thanks!

You have a gorgeous family!

Hello, I have added you to my blogs I follow and enjoyed reading your blog so far. I am visiting from Lynette's blog. I tried to do a Mclinkey thing for your Monday blog...but I think I messed up...(didn't show blue). So if you can take it off, I will redo it. I think I know what I did wrong.. Sorry. But anyways, have a blessed day. Coleene

Karen said...

Stopping by from Lynnette's "Getting To Know You" to say Hi! You have a beautiful family and those biscuits look yummy!


Life Is Crazy Beautiful said...

Hi Tiffany, I'm Lynnette's sister! I love your "little" blog (mine's "littler", ha ha). I sometimes wish we had had this forum when my daughter was younger...she's just old enough that everything was pre-scrapbooking craze, pre-affordable video cameras, pre-VeggieTales, pre-computers in every home, pre-blogging & digital scrapbooking.

Enjoy all your new visitors!

Unknown said...

Those biscuits look so good! I am glad that Lynnette sent us to your blog this week. I look forward to reading more about you and you cute family.

Charity Nee said...

Blessings in Christ,
(thanks lynnette for sending me over here, lol!!)

Have a happy week! {heart}

Much of the Christmas celebration actually begins in the last week leading up to Christmas and this is the time that
the event s joined by those taken flights to Egypt from
UK and other places. The newspaper printing
machines available online these days are superior in performance.
Stars and the loaded are sometimes (however,
not always) capable to go beyond the holding out course of
action to obtain immediate gratification. Assemble your guests in teams, set out clues
and people to actually talk to. 8 At the dinner table always sit next to a member of
the same sex, unless your host or hostess suggests otherwise, likewise in cafes and restaurants.
