Today is National Biscuits and Gravy Day. For us, the Southern tradition of biscuit making is still alive and thriving. The art of making light and fluffy buttermilk biscuits is passed down generation to generation much like making tomato gravy. The biscuits are served hot and immediately topped with butter, jam, honey, preserves, or gravy. This is one of our favorite recipes. Hope you enjoy!
