All of these suggestions are going to keep me busy over the holiday's...!!

DAMN YOU Rastus!  I'm getting fat(er) just reading this ... And, my cholesterol is going through the ceiling.

I will post a recipe or two later, but I will start with stating that I am a biscuits and gravy snob.  Get it right or get out of the business!

For me it is buttermilk, baking soda, ice cold butter or lard.  Fluffy and flaky comes some from the leavening, but mostly from the fats melting and expanding.

Time to go before I ruin my laptop with drool on the keyboard.

A 50/50 combo of cold lard and butter works well indeed. I grate cold butter with a cheese grater and that helps cut it in better.

Also, the less you work the dough once it is combined yields fluffier, less dense biscuits (I learned that over thirty years ago with my first batch).

The less you work dough for a pie crust the better too. You need the little fat balls in it to make it flaky. I never thought about grating the cold butter. That's a good idea. A pastry blender works great for cutting in chunks of cold butter in the flour too. 2 table knives work too if you know how to do it.

ETA: When I go on vacation with my friends to ride our ATVs, sometimes we have biscuits and gravy for breakfast. The biscuits are probably going to come from a tube, but the gravy makes up for it. My friend's wife likes to mix a pound of regular sausage with a pound of hot sausage and everyone likes it. I usually sprinkle a little black pepper on mine.

Came across a recipe on the current post at:

http://mausersandmuffins.blogspot.com/
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

I was reading 2 posts down from that and there's mention of a fragrance called RHIB that smells like the cocktail it's named after(strawberry). I searched all over and can't find anything for RHIB, R.H.I.B. or R H I B, except for Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat. I know that's not it. It may be an abbreviation for something naughty. Does anyone have a clue what cocktail RHIB could possibly be?

Scroll up and take a look at the picture at the top of that post.  Enlarge it and note that one of the items is called  RedHead In Bed.

P.S.  This is a remarkable woman.  She was a military pilot, work at CSI for a clandestine gov. organization and now works a desk there and has published 3 novels.  Check the right side bar for many many recipes...she is also an extremely talented cook.  And a Redhead.
