Of Babies and Biscuits

"I love cheese and biscuits; the stronger the better." - Eric Bristow

"Every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last." - Charles Dickens

Originally, this post was just going to be about cheese biscuit recipes, but a little something extra came along that will put a nice finishing touch on the Christening Gown series.

Since posting my signature Cheddar Cayenne Biscuits recipe, I've discovered a few other cheese biscuit recipes that are sure to please.

  • First is a recipe for the famous Red Lobster Biscuits. So simple and so delicious, why go out to eat when you can make them at home? 
  • Second is a scrumptious recipe from the Simply Recipes blog for different kinds of cheese biscuits - parmesan-scallion, blue cheese and chives, feta and black olives, or cheddar and scallions. The great thing about this particular recipe is that you can mix and match cheeses with complementary ingredients (the feta-and-black-olive are absolutely divine). Just go easy when sprinkling the rock salt on top - a little goes a long way!

Both of these recipes would be great for group gatherings, or for around the house with a mug of hot apple cider on a cold day.

Now for a lovely little finishing touch to the christening gown saga. I've already written about how making that gown was a fun journey, a labor of love, and the most difficult and challenging project I've ever made. Here is a picture of the Crain's firstborn, after her christening:

I have to say, for working blind with no idea of how big the baby would be, the fit came out beautifully (and this little lady was born on the large side, too).  The sleeves are somewhat long, but the lace lays over her little hands very charmingly. The Crains were delighted, and look forward to christening future babies in it.
