355: The Way To A Man’s Heart

4 cups of butter
2 tbsp baking powder
1 cup of butter
1 cup of buttermilk

Veronica squinted at the recipe. Her grandmother had been an excellent cook. She was sure she had seen her make biscuits. She scoured her memory for a memory, but couldn’t find it. No matter, it was a simple recipe, but it would certainly impress her boyfriend.

She measured out the flour, the butter and the buttermilk. Then turned to the baking powder.

What was a tbsp?

Veronica thought it was less than a cup. If she put in 2 cups she would be sure to have enough.

Her boyfriend was going to love this.

  1. Pros: Margarine is much lower in saturated fat than butter, and it is made from vegetable oils, so it contains no cholesterol. Cons: Although it is lower in saturated fat, stick margarine still contains about the same amount of total fat and calories as butter.

    I try to avoid both as much as possible…

  2. I have been there and done that! Was cooking dessert for 144 people and the recipe was for 4. It required two tsp of baking powder. I multiplied it by about 30, except I thought tsp was tablespoon and not teaspoon. Believe me, the dessert pushed its way through every crack in the ovens.

  3. 😂 I did this once making cookies when I was 12. I ‘read’ 1.5 cups of baking soda when really, of course, it was 1.5 tbsp.
    They were the worse cookies ever!
    One of my older brother’s friends came over (I had a huge crush on him) and he wouldn’t stop eating them.
    Hopefully Veronica is dating my older brother’s friend! He will appreciate the biscuits for sure. 😂
