The navigation to the left will help you find your way around the website. Whether you're looking for Chicken Recipes, Cake Recipes, or Casserole Recipes, you should be able to find what you're looking for. However, if your recipe is particularly elusive, e-mail me (joisigers @ With my collection of cookbooks (We're talking HUNDREDS!) I'm certain I can find just the recipe you're looking for.

We hope you enjoy your visit to Buttermilk Press and hope you'll become a regular guest. I'm currently in the middle of remodeling the site, so if you run into something that looks funky, I'm totally sorry - but it won't look that way for long!

You'll find lots of colorful, beautiful prints and photographs throughout the website because I'm pretty much obsessed with art work. I have a real aversion to naked walls and never feel at home in a room unless I'm surrounded by gorgeous art on the walls.

Be sure you also check out our food blog, Get Cooking. We're in the process of adding more recipes to the site, so please check back often. In addition to recipes, you'll find great kitchen gadgets, pictures of and news about our favorite Food Network personalities - such as Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Alton Brown, Tyler Florence, Jamie Oliver, and The Italian Goddess of the kitchen, Giada De Laurentiis!

Buttermilk Biscuits:

4 cups All-Purpose flour
2 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. sugar plus 1/4 tsp.
Two-thirds cup margarine (softened)
1-1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup margarine (melted)

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in (with a pastry blender or two knives, working in a criss-cross manner) two-thirds cup softened margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk, stir until moistened.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly about 5 times. (Don't overhandle the dough - overhandling is as disasterous as unhandling!) Roll dough to 3/4" and cut with a biscuit cutter.

Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops with melted margarine (this will give them a golden brown appearance when cooked).

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Yield: 15 biscuits (if biscuit cutter is 2-3/4")
