The afternoon events […]

Savory Supper Grits

Savory Supper Grits and Butterless Biscuits

Tonight I made an “interesting” dinner of grits, baked beans, biscuits,  a fresh pear, and radishes.  I personally thought the dinner items complemented each other but in actuality I guess they probably didn’t.  One of the perks of living alone is that it doesn’t matter what you eat.  Or when you eat or where you […]

Banana Master

Banana Master

I am the Banana Master.  I eat one every day for breakfast on my whole wheat toast spread with almond butter and blackberry jam.  But I don’t eat just any old banana.  I eat a perfectly ripened banana each and every morning. How can that be possible? Bananas are seemingly only ripe for a split second […]

Upside Down Cranberry Apple Johnnycake

Unfortunately, I missed a Westside Women’s luncheon Saturday but I got two kids happily off to college and my school year is underway, too.  Things are settling in.  Hopefully you will find me back at my blog a little more regularly now that the Back-to-School rush is done. I still had a few lingering tomatoes from my […]

Kate and Leopold

Kate and Leopold

Where I come from, the meal is the result of reflection and study, menus are prepared in advance, timed to perfection. It is said, without the culinary arts the crudeness of reality would be unbearable. – Leopold (Hugh Jackman) I watched Kate and Leopold (2001) last night.  I still don’t get that movie.  I understand […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

My go-to biscuit for the imaginary Julie’s Biscuit Bus is a basic buttermilk biscuit. Really, though, there is nothing basic about this biscuit.  Using butter instead of shortening makes the biscuit more tender and much tastier.  We ate these biscuits with butter and Ghirardelli Caramel Sauce.  Wow! So good! If you read past the recipe […]

Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Chocolate Chip Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy

Yesterday I talked about the Food trucks at the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival and my interest in starting up Julie’s Biscuit Bus  (or Biscuit Buggy or Biscuit Bar – name  to be decided).  Here is my first menu item.  Chocolate Chip Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy. I made mine in an iron skillet and served them […]

Cheese Fans

Cheese Fans

Stop what you’re doing and make these biscuits.  They are delicious. Two weekends ago I finally had my garage sale.  While I was sitting and waiting for the cash to roll in, I plucked this 1972 cheese cookbook out of my sale box and started reading it.  I found this recipe for Cheese Fans in […]
