February is our Heritage month. We are going to be creating layouts that have to do with recipes handed down or if you started your own tradition that will be passed to your child, niece, nephew, etc. Preserve the family of your origins with their precious recipes.
My family’s most famous recipe is that of my grandmother’s biscuits. You have never had a real biscuit unless you’ve eaten one of her biscuits. Every family event had to have Grandma’s biscuits. My cousin Rita and I would race to see who could get the middle biscuit! It was the softness.
What is one of your families oldest recipes and what’s the story behind it?My Answer
No one knows exactly what Grandma Thomas did to make her famous biscuits. Her mother taught her as her mother taught her. We all know the ingredients; we’ve all watched her make them. No one can cook biscuits like Grandma.
My memory of Grandma making biscuits was that she kept her flour in large, white enamel pan with red rim. She kept it covered with a cloth. When she got ready to make her biscuits she would make a “well” in the center of the flour, put in her ingredients and mix it all in the “well.” She would pull out the dough and there would not be a crumb of left in the pan. She covered it back up and put it away. Now that’s talent.
When my Grandmother passed away the pastor could not resist giving praise to Grandma for having the best biscuits ever. He noted everyone always asked how she did it. Her reply was always the same ‘make your biscuits three times a day for 50 years for 11 children and one husband, then you will get them right!

Congratulations! Send me your snail mail. Make sure to include for what you won.
A friend of mine sent this to me. I responded to the call several days ago. I think it is important as I have so much to learn and I would rather learn at the feet of a diverse and seasoned crafter. So read carefully and please let’s jump in and help.
Please help me join forces to bring Carol Duvall back. As you may have noticed, there are NO crafting shows on TV. There are all gone. We need representation in the crafting world. The new program will be to show all the wonderful new things that can be done with crafts. It will be on the World Wide Web instead of television, so that everyone will be able to get it anytime they wish and watch until they have mastered a technique.
Please send quick email stating that you want Carol Duvall back (a one line email is all that is needed) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do it now and share this info with your friends. If there is enough interest (i.e. sending the email), we have a chance to get Carol back. Let’s see how many responses we can get by Tuesday, February 2. We have to act quickly. Please forward this info, blog and/or tweet about Carol. We need people to show their support of Carol immediately.
PS. Carol looks great and wants to get back to work!!
Thanks Anita for doing your part to enrich the crafting community.
