And thus, I turn to the world of biscuits. I am most definitely not Southern, but my bigger half is kind of an adopted son of yonder parts of this country. As a navy family, he enjoyed many formative years in Texas, Virginia, and Mississippi. He loves biscuits, and is a real biscuit snob. What I personally know about biscuits is limited without his help, and the help of the google man that lives in my apple machine. But I did come across an article on Eatocracy a while back that featured a biscuit recipe from Lisa Fain, author of the Homesick Texan food blog, that seemed both easy to prepare, and built on honest family tradition. Homemade biscuits, something we don't get up here all that often, prepared on the instruction of an expert? Sign me up.

Now I just await my taste tester to get home, bring out a little Essex wildflower honey and butter, and go to town.
