made some hockey pucks

i don't know why but i just can't make biscuits. every once in a while i'll give it a try but the recipe doesn't matter, they always come out hard. i can't make pancakes either. don't get me wrong i can make beautiful picturesque pancakes, just don't eat them, they are more cake than they are pancake, typically about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick - i kid you not.

on one of our beach trips last year, a friend made biscuits & gravy for one of our group breakfasts. i was there when she made the biscuits & in doing so she gave her 6 year old daughter a lesson (i took lots of mental notes). since then i've joked w/B that i'm gonna invite the 6 year old over to make biscuits because i'm sure she'd do a better job than me.

the past 2 weekends i've made biscuits. last week's were really bad, this week's were a slight improvement. i don't know if prisoners would eat them. maybe they wouldn't be so bad if i made gravy to put over them, but then again my gravy isn't that good either.


  1. life is too short for bad bisquits. lol just make muffins.

  2. we usually just do grands but i decided i wanted to try it again...i've also been tinkering with the idea of making tortillas (although i've never tried).


tell me your thoughts...
