I've been planning on writing this post for a couple of days, but have held off so I could also write about the Sacagawea 2012 BOM shop links. We have started the shop list on our website. If you know of a quilt shop that will be offering this quilt as a Block Of The Month - let us know and we'll add them to the list.
Now, on to my planned post. But it seems I'm too late. Moda Lissa blogged about it today also. Brilliant minds think alike. So, here goes.....
I, like many other visually stimulated people, am addicted to Pinterest. It's a great website to collect and store all your visual "pinboards". While perusing Pinterest, I have learned that people are photographing their babies in new and wonderful settings.
I've also learned that if you can imagine it ...... you can have a manicure of it.
I've also learned that I am a food snob. SNOB. I will be the first to tell you that my parmesan cheese is imported directly from Parma Italy. We have a world class bakery a mile from my house and we have fresh bread from it on a regular basis. I will also say I try to buy all my fruits and vegetables from local farmers and I try to buy organic when I can - all thanks to some great grocery stores and an excellent Farmer's Market.
So imagine my surprise when our new favorite recipe, thanks to Pinterest, is a humble throwback to the prepared foods of the 1950's. Behold, the biscuits that are taking Pinterest by storm.
These beauties, while not only the best biscuits I have ever eaten, are also the easiest to make. They have 4 ingredients and take about 2 minutes from bowl to oven.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Put a half stick of butter into a 9" x 9" baking pan and let it melt in the pan while the oven is pre-heating. In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of Bisquick baking mix. Cut in with knives or a pastry cutter 1/2 cup of sour cream. Once the sour cream is cut in, add 1/2 cup of 7-Up soda (not diet). Mix and put out onto a floured board (I used more Bisquick) and pat into an approximate 7" square mound. Cut the biscuits into 9 pieces (think 9-patch!) and put them into the buttered pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden. Enjoy.
