One thing in cooking I can’t stand

So someone saw a recipe for buttermilk biscuits. Let me say one thing I’ve discovered on my cooking journey it’s been precision in measurement. I cannot abide just scooping out an ingredient and eye balling it because that’s the way your grandmother did it.

This recipe calls for shortening – aka Crisco. Then cream that with buttermilk, add some self rising flour (Approx. 2 cups) and 3tsp baking powder. The recipe the woman in the video showed didn’t show any salt being used. Um, how do I explain this, salt is a flavor enhancer.

But give me a recipe with ingredients properly measured and we’re good.

  1. That kind of thing drives me crazy too. Mostly it happens with recipes that we’ve had handed down from family members who seem to think I should just somehow know what’s missing

  2. I watched my mom just throw this shit together also. I do for most everything too, but I’m not too picky. I’ll eat anything. Lol

  3. Where’s your Dunkirk spirit? I just throw everything together – and you know what a terrific chef I am – right?
