+Long Reads: The Political Education of Killer Mike.

Some friends and I are thinking about starting a baking club.  Every week, you bake an item and ship it to your friends.  It’s a way to keep in touch while enjoying something as a group.  So whatever you choose to make needs to be delicious and travel well.

Cookies are the obvious choice, but I’m thinking about making these Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Biscuits.  They look so good, and not like something I’ve ever made before.  Now, if I can just find a way to ship them.

    Hi Abra, I saw you linked to some Gap new arrivals. I don’t know if you’d seen this story recently, that Gap and other companies are not adequately paying Bangladeshi garment workers amidst the coronavirus crisis. Might be worth looking into.

    Your dad thinks you should send him some biscuits.

  3. Jules says:

    Those biscuits look good. For some reason, buttermilk has completely disappeared from the shelves near my area. Haven’t seem a single carton since like March. huh.

    • Jess says:

      A good substitute for buttermilk which I use all the time is 1 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Let set for a few minutes. Works like a charm.

      • Kay says:

        Also I made biscuits this weekend making butter milk with 1:1 sour cream and water. It worked perfectly.

        • Carly says:

          One more option: Greek yogurt + milk. 1 cup buttermilk = 3/4 cup Greek yogurt + 1/4 cup milk. I never buy buttermilk and do this all the time. It may be a lil heavier but I feel good it’s healthier… kinda.

    I love RTJ and Killer Mike. He has a good series on Netflix too

  5. Nancy says:

    Those biscuits look delicious! Might be more than you want to spend, but we often pack baked goods in loose cereal-Rice Krispies work well.
