In another life I own a little cafe and bakery. Every morning I bake up cookies, pies, and biscuits from scratch and people come to eat and enjoy my food. And that makes me very happy.

Serving up cookies and slices of pies is probably no surprise to those of you who know me even a little bit. But my love for biscuits is more of a secret, though I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because biscuits are one of the more homely baked goods, or maybe because they most often play a supporting role to something else.

I absolutely adore biscuits. They’re quick and easy— done in 30 minutes tops— and extremely adaptable. Not to mention their flaky texture and buttery flavor get me every single time. Continue Reading…

 

Grilled peaches drizzled with maple syrup, creamy vanilla cream, and homemade buttermilk biscuits all come together to make one fun summertime shortcake!

Why should strawberries be the only one to have all the shortcake fun? I crave the combination of fresh fruit, cream, and biscuits long after strawberry season has come and gone. It’s the perfect light and easy summer dessert, especially for barbecues and potlucks. Plus, there’s the added bonus that you can make it ahead of time and have it all ready to go for easy entertaining.

Not your average buttermilk biscuits, these come full of gritty cornmeal, sharp cheddar cheese, and spicy jalapeños.

Cheddar-Jalapeno Cornmeal Biscuits

Can I be honest about something? I’ve started to hate my blog name, Completely Delicious. I’m afraid people will think I’m a snob, that I believe that everything I make isn’t only good, but that it’s completely delicious.

What a silly, pretentious name.

Not only do I mess up in the kitchen all the time and bake plenty of mediocre things, but that’s actually not at all how this blog got its name.

If I had to pick a last breakfast, it would most definitely be biscuits and gravy. I can still remember my first taste the morning after a sleepover at a friend’s house, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

If it’s on the menu it’s always the dish I order, it’s on a regular rotation at our house, and I’m not even kidding when I say that I sometimes dream of biscuits and gravy. Totally hooked.

A bright start to any morning— buttery scones scented with lemon zest and filled with poppy seeds, all topped with a lemon icing.

Being a baker on a diet is hard. Every night I crave chocolate chip cookies. Every morning I want waffles. I’ve been doing pretty good, though, despite the fact that this week I tested and perfected these lemon poppy seed scones.

Three batches of scones in four days meant extra laps in the pool every morning, but it’s all been worth it.
