Mississippi Magazine Feature: Biscuits

Mississippi Magazine Feature: Biscuits // Leslie Ann Jones

"I don't remember a time in my life when biscuits did not remind me of my grandmother.  Mornings at Granny's house revolved around preparing the Southern staple.  My sister and I always crashed on the couch at her house, just one thin wall away from the kitchen.  We woke up to the sounds and smells of bacon frying and coffee brewing, and by the time we scurried out of bed and ran into the kitchen to 'help,' she had chairs pushed up to the counter ready for us to stand in."

That's just a taste of my memoir about making biscuits with my grandmother that Mississippi Magazine, published by Downhome Publications, ran in the September/October 2008 issue.   Like Southern Living for the state of Mississippi, Mississippi Magazine "is a bimonthly magazine that celebrates the positive points of our state - from interesting people and places to homes, gardens, food, history, culture, special events and more."
