Yesterday was a rainy Sunday so I thought it would be the perfect day to try out a couple new recipes from Joanna Gaines’ new cookbook called Magnolia Table. I haven’t bought the cookbook yet because I wanted to see if I liked her recipes first, so I downloaded a few that were posted on the Today’s show website: Buttermilk Biscuits & Chicken Pot Pie. (click on names to download). I snapped a few pics on my phone along the way…
So 1st up I made the buttermilk biscuits
I had a little help 🙂
Lots of love & finger smashes went into these biscuits
The recipe makes about 20 biscuits so I only baked 12 & saved the rest of the dough for the chicken pot pie
One of the suggestions she gave for the biscuits was homemade strawberry shortcake.
So while the biscuits baked, the kids helped me cut the strawberries (don’t worry these are kid knives)
& I made a homemade whipped cream (1 cup of heavy cream, 2 tablespoons sugar, & a splash of vanilla- super easy!)
The result was DELICIOUS- everyone loved them!
Then I used the remaining biscuit dough to top the chicken pot pie, which is more of a stew.
It was really good but not my favorite & it got mixed reviews from the rest of the family. To me, it’s a lot like Chicken & Dumplings & I think my current recipe better. But still good & worth a try. You can also top it with crescent roll dough instead of making the biscuits. It makes A LOT so you can easily divide & freeze which is nice.
I still have a little biscuit dough left over so tonight we’re going to try Biscuits & Sausage Gravy for dinner. Her biscuit recipe really is amazing so it’s a keeper for sure! I might just have to buy her cookbook & try out some more recipes! If you have her cookbook, I’d love to hear which recipes are your favorite- leave me a comment below!
