Vegetable Cheese Quiche

Just the other day my mom and I were baking pie shells for our usual Jane's Peach Pie (it's peach season so I'm sure we'll be having pie every day for a couple of weeks hah). Well, the oven was hot and we hadn't eaten breakfast and had no idea what to have for lunch soon, so I pulled out one of my great ideas ;) and decided we should make some quiche! My mom wasn't huge into the whole process but it sure paid off in the end, because heavens this quiche is seriously so good!

Old Fashioned Buttermilk Biscuits

These buttermilk biscuits always remind me of my Grandpa Chuck. He loved eating these biscuits when we came over for dinner. I remember, back when I was really little, I helped my mom make these biscuits for a Sunday dinner (and by helped I mean barely did anything haha). Well, the whole time we ate, my grandpa talked about how good they were. I was pretty proud of myself and my efforts (even though they were small), that may just be the beginning of my foodie career ;)

These buttermilk biscuits are light and flaky and everything you wish for in a biscuits. They are a perfect side dish for any meal, especially soups and roasts. We eat them hot out of the oven slathered with butter and jam, or (if there is a miracle and we have leftovers) we toast them in the morning for a delicious and quick breakfast!

Buttermilk Biscuits
Weird measurements I know, but it makes the perfect amount...
Makes 2 dozen, 2 inch biscuits
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter (1 1/2 sticks), cut into pieces
1 1/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk, plus additional for brushing

1) Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit.
2) In a food processor (or in a large mixing bowl by hand) sift all dry ingredients together. Cut in butter to dry ingredients by pulsing (or using a fork) until it resembles coarse meal. 
3) Slowly add buttermilk until a dough forms.
4) Roll dough into 2 inch balls and place on a prepared cookie sheet, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart. 
5) Brush tops with buttermilk and bake until biscuits are just barely golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Enjoy!
