Okay, it is time for me to admit my love affair with butter...I have admired Paula Deen's candor for her fondness of butter and it is now time for me to step out of the refrigerator and shout I LOVE YOU BUTTER! My chunky thighs and bubbly butt stand testament to the sadly not-so-clandestine relationship butter and I have. In all this time, years of trying many different biscuit recipes looking for one to fall in love with and bring into the family as a near daily table setting I think I found "The One" and I discovered the recipe, here.  It was just posted, and with the exception of not knowing if the recipe called for 1/2 a stick or 1/2 a cup I started with 1/2 a stick...foolish girl in denial about what me and butter have going on. After grating the 1/2 stick into the flour mixture butter looked so lost in that sea of white so I added the other half of the stick and went with the 1/2 C of butter (1 stick). I love you butter, sorry for trying to keep our relationship a secret baby.

So back to the biscuits, super easy recipe to whip together and the outcome...
YUMMY! A great all around biscuit, it is most definitely flaky and would be lovely at the breakfast table OR the dinner table. The search is over for me, mamma I'm coming home.  I imagine a lifetime of friendship. Me and biscuit, we can keep our new relationship alive by being creative, maybe adding some chives and bacon bits to the batter...there are so many possibilities.

LAZY LINDA TIP: Why dirty an extra bowl, just leave the milk in the measuring glass and beat the egg in the glass with the milk. Oh and when I get to the scraps of biscuit dough, I keep pushing them together and recutting until the very end. I even form the last bits of scraps into a circular shape and bake it up too. It is like the runt of the litter, but still yummy as its siblings.

Seed Saver's Exchange is my all-time favorite place to order seeds from, they are an heirloom and organic seed supplier. They are the best, most friendliest people I have come across in the seed sales business. I just called the other day because I wanted to order my sister-in-law a gift certificate to SSE for Christmas and when I was on the website I had an issue, I could not seem to get the shipping address to change. It turns out it was one of those pesky glitches, the website had issues, and the kind lady on the other end of the line went right into my order and changed the address for me and processed my order. She was sweet, friendly and very knowledgeable. So in addition to having a fantastic seed selection the people make the company worth investing in. I am already dreaming of next years garden...purple tomatoes, paste tomatoes, bell peppers, the list goes on and on...
