The smell of Robinhood Meetinghouse biscuits baking is simply irresistible. But it’s when you eat them that you swoon. Why? Loving our biscuits is purely physiological.
It has been HOT. Like forget-you-even-have-an-oven hot. But what is one to do when peaches are in season, ripe and begging to be sugared and served on a biscuit? Do without? Of course not! I turned my attention to the grill, the glorious contraption that sends heat to the outside world and not my home.
My lovely friend Sarah, born on the 4th of July and one of the best Americans I know, was telling me about her birthday traditions on a recent visit. Sarah casually mentioned Strawberry Shortcake was her birthday dessert of choice. After much interrogation I asked her if she would let me make her MY strawberry shortcake. But what she didn't realize is that I rather selfishly wanted to make the best strawberry shortcake she's ever had.
