2-Ingredient Cream Biscuits

2-Ingredient Cream Biscuits, tender, fluffy, and scrumptious biscuits every time you make them.   Simple biscuits using only 2 ingredients –self-rising flour and heavy whipping cream.   A cream biscuit recipe is a cook's best shortcut secret.    2-Ingredient Cream Biscuits are the easiest biscuits ever.  No buttermilk, no butter or shortening, and as you know, no fuss is my kind of recipes, keeping it simple. I must say, we love biscuits around here, and we have some amazing biscuit recipes.  We have the  Classic Southern Buttermilk Biscuits , these giant  Cream Cheese Biscuits , these quick  Three Ingredient Biscuits , and these  Buttery Fresh Herb Biscuits . These different biscuit recipes bring many options to a meal, not to mention what I have in my pantry when I want to make some biscuits.  

No Fuss Blackberry Sweet Rolls

No Fuss Blackberry Sweet Rolls, a soft, tender dough swirled with a mixture of vanilla, brown sugar, butter, and a generous layer of luscious, whole blackberries all throughout and topped with a cream cheese frosting. Blackberry season is just around the corner, and the first thing I want to make is   Blackberry Dumpling Cobbler .   Last year I couldn't stop buying the large cartons of blackberries at SAMs.  The price always drops around this time of the year, and it is worth buying several cartons and keeping them in the freezer for later during the year to make these Blackberry Sweet Rolls. Sweet rolls are a favorite weekend breakfast treat. My go-to recipe is Homemade Cinnamon Rolls. They rise for 30 minutes and bake for 15 minutes, making them perfect, no fuss sweet rolls.

Hatch Chili Pepper Cornbread

Hatch Pepper Cornbread ,  spicy, robust flavor from hatch chili peppers in classic cornbread gives a smooth heat rather than a kick.  The difference in the taste profile is due to the soil and climate in which the chili peppers are grown. Every year I look forward to Hatch Chili Pepper season.  It comes around the first of August and lasts until the end of September, depending on the weather the season can run shorter or longer. All the buzz about the Hatch Chili Pepper comes from its distinct flavor, smoky, sweet, yet still packed with some heat without being too spicy, as does the jalapeno pepper. Right now, my local grocery stores are showcasing all the ways to enjoy the Hatch Chili Peppers, from using them in salsa to adding them to ice cream.

Weeknight Family Supper Meal: #5 Spaghetti Pie

I would serve a one pot dish, like Shrimp Creole over buttered rice, green salad, and for dessert, we would have chocolate cake.  Oh, the memories are flooding in.  sniff sniff!
