  • Menu Plan Monday

    The cooler weather has me in a baking mood, which is good because we are starting to run low on sandwich bread, and I could use some other goodies in the freezer. So I think Tuesday will have to be a baking day.

    Monday – Chicken Cobb Salad, Buttermilk biscuits (and if anyone has any secret fluffy biscuit tips, I’m dying to know them – I can never get mine as light and fluffy as the kind that come in a can, although they taste fine)

    Tuesday – Pizza using artisan bread dough, salad; Baking day: Sandwich bread, Applesauce bread, Cereal bars

    Wednesday – Chicken Milanese

    Thursday – Pasta Bolognese

    Friday – Breakfast: Waffles, Eggs, Sausage, Fruit

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner Out

      The secret to fluffy biscuits is to make sure the butter is very cold when you mix the dough (don't use your hands!) then put the dough in the fridge for about an hour before you cut them and put in the over when it's at the baking temp – don't put
      it in while it's preheating there's a really good buttermilk recipe with cheese on foodnetwork.com under barefoot contessa! excellent with or without the cheese

    3. I have tried about every biscuit recipe variation under the sun to get my biscuits light and fluffy. Then I tried this cream biscuit recipe and voila! Honestly, the best one yet!

      This hoe cake is super simple and it also bakes up light and fluffy. I like it because you don't have to roll and cut!

      @Christine – Thanks for the recipe suggestion and tips. I've never tried refrigerating the dough first, will definitely give that a go.

      @Camille – I saw that when you posted, it's on my list (and just moved up!).
