Is there anything better than hot biscuits in the morning?
This morning I needed a hearty biscuit for breakfast. I’d been up late Saturday night studying for finals–which start this week.
And as you know, I adore biscuits! They are quick, easy, and almost foolproof.
So to get this finals week full of books and studying off to a good start with some incredibly yummy biscuits and some great music, take a listen to “I Could Write a Book” sung by Ella Fitzgerald. I’ll be writing some papers and essays this week, too!

- 1 cup all-purpose flour

- In a large bowl combine oat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a small bowl combine milk, vinegar, and honey. Stir until honey is incorporated. Set aside.
