Ever Evolving Food Blog
Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.
All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
Southern Buttermilk Biscuits are one of the most difficult things to master, and I have not mastered them, but when you really want apple butter and there are no biscuit tins in the house, you'll learn how to make biscuits pretty quickly! At least, that is what happened to me.
2 cups self-rising flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup Crisco All-Vegetable shortening, chilled
3/4 cup buttermilk
In a large mixing bowl, blend the flour and sugar. Cut in shortening with a fork until the crumbs are pea-sized. Blend in milk with a fork until dough leaves the sides of bowl
On a floured surface, turn out the dough and knead gently 2-3 times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out circles with a glass dipped in flour or a biscuit cutter.
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 500 for 8-10 min.
Makes 12 biscuits.
