Easy homemade southern biscuits recipe (without buttermilk)

Growing up in the South, I was surrounded by people who could make great homemade biscuits. My Mom and my Grandmother could make great biscuits. But the best buttermilk biscuits were made by my Greatgrandmother in an old wood-fired oven. She would be working in the kitchen and talking to everyone, and at the right time, she would open her oven, give the biscuits a turn, close the oven and go back to talking. Her biscuits always turned out fluffy and golden brown, exactly what I look for in perfect biscuits. Until recently, I have always struggled to make good biscuits and had to make do with canned biscuits. You do not have to use canned biscuits today; I will share my easy homemade biscuit recipe; these are fluffy biscuits with a golden brown top. In the future, I will share my flaky biscuits recipe.

The write-up will include many tips that I have learned in developing this recipe, including substations, etc., to allow you to make the best biscuits for your taste. But if you want the recipe click the jump to recipe button.

Crispy air fryer Totino’s pizza rolls no blowouts

Air fried pizza rolls on a plate with a bowl of sauce.

Most people that I know love crispy Totino’s pizza rolls that have been cooked in the oven. But you have to preheat the oven and then cook for 10 to 15 minutes. We all know the best way to cook them is by deep-frying them. But that also takes time to heat the oil, fry then clean up the mess.

Normally when I want frozen pizza rolls, it’s for a quick snack and I wind up microwaving them. They turn out ok but definitely on the soggy side.

I will also include some tips for people without a bread machine.

I must admit that pizza is my favorite food group. After all, you can top it however you like to load it up with meat; no problem if you want a vegan pizza, no problem.

Today we will make tomato and mushroom pizzas—one with cheese and one vegan version. By removing the cheese, the vegan version has 400 fewer calories but is still delicious.

But to be clear to my Italian friends in no way am I claiming that this is authentic Italian pizza dough. However, after all of this craziness has calmed down and international travel is an option a cooking class in Naples is on my list.
