Cheese tea biscuits are a staple of life on the East Coast of Canada. Tea biscuits remind of of our grandparents, our parents, and our siblings. We can look back and picture ourselves gathered at the table with the people we love, with a basket of warm tea biscuits fresh out of the oven between us. Most often we bake plain tea biscuits and serve them warm and buttered with a drizzled of thick, sticky molasses; When we’re feeling fancy we add cheese and sometimes chives. An easy tea biscuit recipe is great to keep in your back pocket in case company pops in, you’re having soup for lunch, or you want a quick snack with a cup of tea. Versatile and simple, you just can’t beat a good tea biscuit recipe.
Southern inspired Rosemary Pumpkin Biscuits with Smoky Mushroom Gravy that make any weekend or holiday table extra celebratory!
We’re a week post-Canadian Thanksgiving and while most of the country has returned to their regularly scheduled menus, I’m stuck on gravy and biscuits and leftover turkey on roasted-celery-studded bread. I’m a glutton for holiday flavours, what can I say.
My dad joined us for dinner last Monday, and while I was happy to make a meat main course for him and my husband, I had my sights set on a rich red wine and mushroom gravy that was a little out of the ordinary for them. To my surprise, and I’m sure theirs (when I tell them), neither said a word about the switch but both ended up licking their plates.
I consider it a huge success when my meat and potatoes family swoons over a vegetarian swap out in place of super traditional, don’t-dare-leave-it-out holiday menu items. After that win, I wanted to experiment a bit more… who doesn’t need an excuse to “test” gravy all week?…
These easy vegan scones need just 6 total ingredients, including whole grain spelt flour, and are served here with a strawberry bay leaf jam for a sweet spring twist.
Late spring means one thing to me- strawberries! Last week the farmers markets started carrying the perfect little deep red berries and I cannot seem to get my fill. I’ve been slicing them up for on top of ice cream, serving them with pancakes, and cooking them with porridge.
