I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Buttermilk Biscuits (

I've been searching for a biscuit recipe that makes light and moist biscuits; most seem to turn out dense and dry. These are the best I've ever made. So yummy! The whole family loved these. 20 minutes. $1.66 including tax
2 c white flour
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
½ tsp cream of tartar
½ c butter
1 c buttermilk (or sour milk)

In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and cut in the butter using a fork or pastry blender (butter chunks should end up pea-size). Stir in the buttermilk and continue stirring only until the mixture forms a ball and begins to hold together (do not over-mix or biscuits will be tough). Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll out ¾-1” thick and cut into rounds. Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet (or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper). Arrange biscuits close together for soft sides or 1” apart for more crusty sides. Bake at 450° for 12 min or until just golden brown.

  1. I love biscuits but I don't have a recipe for them. I will have to give these a try.
