I'll get to these charming little biscuits in a second.
First I'd like to thank one of my lovely readers for letting me know that some of my food photos were being used without my knowledge or permission. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I've never had to deal with this kind of situation before, and it made me a bit nauseous. Have I been too naive in thinking that photos could be used without asking? I'd hate to think so. When someone asks if they can use a photo, my camera and I are truly flattered, and I always say yes. All I ask is that they give credit where credit is due.
Worrying is counterproductive, and it's something I already do too much of on a normal day. Luckily running has always had a way of sorting out scattered thoughts. So after a long jog through through the crisp autumn air, I realized that I shouldn't always dwell on the negative. Instead I should focus on the positive...someone out there was kind enough to take the time to let me know that they had found something that wasn't right. Thank you. :-)
Okay, let's talk food.
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Jennifer, of Cooking for Comfort. Usually I don't have very much luck with biscuits (they end up as sad little hockey pucks). But they key to perfect, flaky biscuits, is a light hand. When a recipe says not to over-mix the dough, do not over-mix the dough. I resisted the need to keep kneading, and I was rewarded with light, fluffy, happy biscuits! For the recipe, please hop on over to Jennifer's adorable blog, Cooking for Comfort. The biscuits are extremely fast and easy to put together... and they make an excellent fried egg sandwich.
