Mama's Ever Ready Biscuit Mix

12 cups flour
6 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons salt
2 cups vegetable shortening

Stir dry ingredients together blending well. Add shortening and blend until mixture is crumbly. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Use within 3 months.

To use, mix with milk to desired consistency. (Approximately 3/4 cup milk to 2 cups biscuit mix.) Shape or cut into biscuits and bake 10 to 12 minutes (or until lightly browned) at 425°.

This recipe was collected and handwritten on a recipe card by my mother, Doris Hill.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
