How many mothers or grandmothers have added flour, butter and milk and kneaded it into the perfect flaky biscuit? Or realized that if you add milk and flour to heat a delicious gravy will soon follow after? Sometimes tradition is the best thing for the soul as I was so amazingly reminded of when I made the recipe below.
Biscuits & gravy are one of those simple comfort foods that make you feel warm & fuzzy inside. My sister requested that I make these and given that I’ve never tried them before I was a little hesitant. However, what sister wants sister gets so I woke up early on Saturday morning and set to make my kitchen a mess with flour.
The biscuits are flaky and the gravy a decadent, savory thick mess that goes oh so well. Make these for your loved ones on a Sunday morning and they shall love you forever.
I’m pretty good in the kitchen ok. However even I was impressed with myself over these little morsels of perfection. Anyone who knows me or eats with me knows that my love of crab cakes is a wondrous thing and I am PICKY.
I look up to Ina Garten immensely. The way she effortlessly entertains, how calm and collected she always is and how she takes simple ideas and ingredients and creates something astoundingly delicious.
Masterchef has been inspiring me this season and my cooking bug is slowly coming back to life. So on this dreary & cloudy Monday I leave you this bright and warm cake that melts in your mouth.
