A cookbook filled with recipes, tips and techniques to simplify biscuit-making.
Biscuits are a comfort food that any southerner has surely been eating since childhood. I remember using my granny’s homemade biscuits to sop up cane syrup poured out of a big bottle. In addition to the many recipes in this cookbook, Jackie’s down-to-earth stories of her Southern heritage bring back some precious memories for me.
Jackie didn’t actually perfect her biscuit-making skills until after she started her blog. She says that decades of biscuit failure combined with exhaustive biscuit research has produced surefire techniques, tips and knowledge that is reliable. That’s what she’s sharing in her cookbook. Just goes to show you that there’s hope for anyone who’s failed at making homemade biscuits.
By the way, Jackie and I met at a conference 3 years ago and she’s just the sweetest. Check out her blog when you get a chance.
