From the Kitchen of Cathy Blatnik
I was lucky enough to find, in my vast collection of recipes, my great-grandfather’s biscuit recipe from August 1959. It was on a typed index card with the title, “Dad’s Biscuits.” The “dad” being my grandmother’s father on my mom’s side of the family. He owned a bakery at one time in Missouri. I guess that’s where I get my love of baking from, it’s in the “genes.” I hope you enjoy them this Father’s Day with a special “dad” in your life!
