Miniature Icon Benne Biscuits eliminate Sunday blahs

The holidays ended and a blah Sunday set in.

The only thing we can think to do in a situation like this is to bake. But what? With the Duke Ellington Orchestra playing in the background, in my attempt to inspire creativity, we blindly took one of the bread books off the shelf.

Here’s what opened: We’ll call it “Miniature Icon Benne Biscuits.”

Here’s how you get to Point Biscuit from Point A:

Turn oven to 450.

½ cup sesame seeds
2 cups white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup milk

English Icon muffins - better than store-bought

Do you love English muffins as much as the Icon loves them?

If so read on and you may never need to have store-bought English muffins on your grocery list.

These muffins are a bit tricky to create, but we are certain that after the first skillet comes off the oven top, you’ll figure out the secret to create a perfect one.

Here’s all you need:

   4 cups of white flour
   1 ½ teaspoon salt
   ½ teaspoon sugar
   1 tablespoon yeast
   1 tablespoon olive oil

We created 16 muffins from this recipe.

Lewis Carroll and Robert Frost were no shows for Thanksgiving; even so, the oyster stew was perfect

Our Thanksgiving dinner invitation list included favorite poets Lewis Carroll and Robert Frost. Neither accepted, but places were set.

Set, just in case of late arrivals.

Hoping for Mister Carroll’s presence, for days prior to Thanksgiving lines from “Oh, oysters come and walk with us… along the briny beach”…  chanted frequently around our cheery home.

It didn’t work.

It didn’t work, even though we ordered a fresh pint of the delicacy from The Dough Hook and informed our poet friend of the menu: Oyster Stew.

The only sign of Mister Frost on Thanksgiving morn was a dusty residue of white stuff on the lawn.
