I once had a food blog prior to this one. It actually was being read. And commented on. And featured on some others websites. And occasional “desserts you should try” articles. No awards, it was only “live” for six months. I started the blog as a distraction for the troubles I was facing in my marriage. I thought if i had something else to focus on, like really focus on, it would make all the troubles dissipate. And it did…. at first. I just needed some sort of outlet. And then it didn’t. And so here I am, once again, things are a little bit different now. But they are just things. I am still here, God has still given me a purpose in my life, just trying to figure out what that purpose might be.
But for now my purpose is to show ya’ll some southern buttermilk drop biscuits. I would be lying if I even attempted to take credit for this recipe <insert sad and defeated face here>. I really tried to develop this recipe on my own and failed a thousand times over. Nothing was doing it for me. Something was always a little off and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. So I cheated and turned to my most favorite cookbook, Cooks Illustrated, and referenced their buttermilk drop biscuits which you can find here (you can subscribe to their website if you want more recipes by them… No they aren’t paying me, they don’t even know my blog exists, I just really really like their recipes). Some of my measurements are a little bit different however the main idea was from them. So I gotta reference.
These drop biscuits are super easy, no biscuit cutter or rolling pin needed (always a bonus) and are great to freeze/reheat.They pair incredibly well with any soup/stew/chili or make a great on the go snack.
This is exactly what I did. My first blog is still live, but I can’t bring myself to update it since my divorce. But I started it 100% to have something to consume my thoughts so that I didn’t focus on my marriage that had been failing for years. I wrote about it here: http://domesticfits.com/2015/01/28/life-like-divorce/
Hope you’re well, and hope that you have found some solid footing.
