  1. White Lily Buttermilk Biscuits

    I grew up in Georgia, and my Grandmother was famous for making the best biscuits on the planet.  Before she died I asked her for the recipe, and she told me that it was the same as the recipe printed on the White Lily Self-Rising Flour package.  I thought that she might have been throwing me a curve ball, but I loved and trusted her, so I gave it a try.  LO AND BEHOLD, I was soon enjoying the light, fluffy, tasty biscuits that my Grandmother had always made!

  4. Sides Cornbread

    It is very easy to make some authentic cornbread.  Just make sure that you use a well-seasoned and clean cast-iron skillet.  And put it in the oven with the grease in it while you preheat the oven so it will get hot.
