{Gluten-Free} Swiss-Parsley Yogurt Biscuits

I always forget how much my boys (yes, all three of them) enjoy biscuits and gravy for breakfast! This morning, before we headed out for a day of sledding, I baked some biscuits full of Swiss cheese and fresh parsley...and they were gluten-free for Jake.


Ingredients
  • 2 C gluten-free flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/4 t freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 T butter, cold and cubed
  • 3/4 C whole milk plain yogurt
  • 1/4 C fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 C shredded Swiss cheese
  • milk, as needed

Procedure 
Preheat the oven to 450° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine gluten-free flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine. Add butter to the dry ingredients. Gently fold the yogurt, herbs, and cheese into the dry ingredients, stirring until most of the flour is absorbed and the dough forms a shaggy ball. If the dough is too dry, add one tablespoon of milk at a time. Turn the dough out onto a floured cutting board or counter. Knead until it forms a smooth ball, approximately 10 to 15 seconds.

Pat the dough down to 1/2" thick. Cut the biscuits and place them on the parchment-lined baking sheet.


Bake the biscuits for 12 to 14 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.  


I served these under a generous scoop of bacon-onion gravy. Oh, my!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
