In the mood for home cooking?
*not my actual grandma….a stunt grandma..but really similar!
I’m trying to learn to cook like my fore-mothers did. Real ingredients, no artificial crap, made from scratch with love…you know the drill. I have a particular fondness for biscuits. It’s because of my Great Grandma. I can still picture her in her dinky little mobile home, sun streaming in from the kitchen window, flour dust in the air, hands wiped on a floursack apron. She made biscuits every day…I doubt she ever bought bread.
When I would visit with my father, she would have him doing chores, but I got to sit around watching cartoons and listen to her clanking around in the kitchen. She made a perfect roast, veggies, and biscuits every time. She had a bowl full of dough in her fridge at all times…just added a handful of this and that as needed.
I have tried and tried to make good biscuits, but they will never taste like those did. We’re lucky if they’re edible. Maybe some day I’ll get the hang of it.
