Two hard-boiled eggs with Celtic sea salt, a hunk of sharp cheddar cheese, and gas-station coffee.

I think I'm going to go with blueberry pancakes and my own jarred maple syrup. Add coffee to that, and I'll be happy.

Here's the plan for today.......

whole wheat pancakes with my own jarred maple syrup. Wash it down with a pot of coffee and then follow it up with a bowl of Early Morning Pipe and this day will be off to a great start.

Homemade biscuits? If so, what's the recipe?

My inlaws are down, so it's smoked bacon from a little smokehouse back in TN, country ham, eggs, fresh TN tomatoes, and my mother-in-laws biscuits. Out-freaking-standing.

Biscuits are super easy.

Combine 2 cups self-rising flour, a few teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 stick of butter, about an 1/8 to a 1/4 cup of crisco, and a cup of milk. I add no salt. Go light on the milk and add a bit more if necessary. Use butter milk if you have it.

Flour your hands as the dough ball will be very sticky. Do NOT overwork the dough. Just fold the dough a half dozen times or so on a floured surface then flatten until it's about an inch thick.

Cut out biscuits and place on cookie sheet touching each other. Dent the top of each biscuit with your knuckle to control the rise.

As you reball and flatten leftover dough try not to overwork it.

Bake in a 425-450 oven for 15-20 minutes.

Any recipe you get will basically be the above.

Thanks. Being married to a professional cook for so many years, I was pretty ignorant of basic cooking skills. Now that she's gone, easy recipes like this makes me eager to get in the kitchen.

The more you work the dough, the less flakey, tender and crumbly your biscuits will be. Be gentle with biscuit dough. You're not making bread.

Basic cooking (the limit of my "skills") is easy.

As a rule, in cooking measures are approximate. Just do it to your taste.

In baking measure are required. It's a chemistry experiment, but biscuits are a forgiving experiment.

BTW, did you mean to write, "supper easy"??? If so, I missed the original humor but am laughing now. If it wasn't intentional, claim it anyway.

Once my twin and I were 12 years old, our parents made us do our own laundry and cook one family meal a week. They didn't want us growing to rely on another for clean clothes or a good meal. I'm thankful for that. They didn't do that for my older brothers, and it shows.

My twin brother is an excellent cook and was quickly becoming one as a teen. Often I'd trade my cooking duties for doing the dishes because I liked his chow so much better. He hated doing dishes, and I never minded doing them, especially for a good meal.
