Best Biscuits We’ve Ever Had

We saw a T-V cooking show somewhen and wrote this recipe down to try.  Sorry, we can’t remember the name of the show to give credit.  But these are really good, especially lathered in butter!

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups cream

Preheat oven to 450.

Whisk together dry ingredients.  Heat cream in microwave for 1 minute.  Add to dry ingredients and mix (should be sticky).

Using 1/3 cup measure, spray with oil and scoop biscuit dough pressing against side.   Drop onto baking sheet lined with parchment.

Put in oven and bake 10-12 minutes.  Brush with 2 tbsp. melted butter.   Cool 5 minutes.

 

Parabon Genetic Study

The other day in a mail consolidator I am a member of, Ce Ce Moore left a request for volunteers to help the company she works for improve their system that generates estimated phenotype traits for their customers.

Do you want to help Parabon fight crime and advance science? If so, please consider joining the Snapshot DNA Phenotypic Trait and Ancestry Study. All you need is (1) an iPhone and (2) a little bit of uninterrupted time to complete the in-app instructions. If you have an existing genotype file from a consumer testing site (e.g., 23andMe, AncestryDNA, FamilyTreeDNA, etc.), you can donate it to the study too and elect to receive a free Snapshot DNA Ancestry Analysis report. To learn more visit: https://parabon-nanolabs.com/volunteer/. If you have any questions or don’t have an iPhone, please check out the FAQs linked on that page. For questions not answered in the FAQ’s please email: snapshot-research@parabon.com

The goal is to improve the algorithms overall using aggregated data from the participants, not to add to a genetic genealogy database to identify specific suspects through genealogy (please upload to GEDMatch and or FTDNA if you want to contribute in that way). A lot of questions about the Parabon Snapshot study are answered here:
