Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain


Life is a mixture

of sunshine and rain,

Teardrops and laughter, pleasure and pain -

We can’t all have bright days,

but it’s certainly true.

There never was a cloud that the

sun didn’t shine through!

When Molehills Become Mountains

When molehills become mountains

You think you cannot climb,

Remember Everest was conquered

One step at a time.

If you keep your sense of humor,

You can endure the pain,

And when you reach the summit,

Your losses will be gains.

Sage Buttermilk Biscuits

1/2 Cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes, plus 4 Tbsp., softened

2 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. sugar

1 Tbsp. minced sage leaves

1 Cup buttermilk

2 Tbsp. heavy cream

Heat oven to 450 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cut the butter into the flour, using a pastry blender, until it resembles a course meal. Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and sage and stir to combine. Make a well in the center and pour i the buttermilk. Mix all ingredients and the dough begins to come together.

On a lightly floured work surface, form dough into a ball and roll into about 1/2-inch thickness. Flour a 3-inch biscuit cutter and cut out the biscuits. Reshape the leftover dough into a ball, roll it out again and cut out more biscuits.

Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with cream. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. While the biscuits are still hot, spread some softened butter on top of each one and let it melt. Makes 12.
