I'm a Northern girl. I've lived in Illinois my entire life. My dad was from Alabama, Mobile to be exact. I've been told that that is as southern as you can git. My mother in law, Donna, is from the south too. She mostly grew up in Lebanon, Tennessee. Have I ever mentioned that it was her family that started Cracker Barrel? How cool is that?
Anywho, even though I'm a northern girl, my mother in law says all the time that southern is just in the blood. And I can make iced tea(which believe it or not most people up here can't make it) or as some down south call it sweet tea. And I can make corn bread and sausage gravy with the best of them. I don't know why I'm able to do this but I'm quite pleased that I'm able to please a southern palette. My only down fall is that I can't make biscuits. I've tried and tried.
Donna went to TN to visit some family. They had a long conversation about biscuits. She also, brought me back some flour. I'm pretty sure this is a hint. I found a recipe on the bag but it didn't seem like much of a recipe. So does anyone out there have a killer biscuit recipe? And it needs to be somewhat easy.
Thanks for helping a northern girl,
