I've tweaked my biscuit recipe, and now I can't get enough! I've made variations of this batch three times in the past week, one of which is sweet chocolate dessert biscuit -- so get ready for that recipe tomorrow! I love biscuits because they are simple enough to make and require only a few, inexpensive ingredients.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment.
Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, pepper, and dried basil.
Then pour in the wet ingredients and mix until dough forms. Knead a few times until everything is moistened.
Lightly flour a work surface and roll with a pin or flatten with your palm the dough until it is around 1 inch thick.
Using a round cookie cutter (I used a Ball jar lid ring), cut dough into 12 biscuits.
Bake for 11-12 minutes, until biscuits are lightly browned. Be careful not to over-bake or they will get dry.
Let cool a few minutes before serving warm.

// HENNA HAIR COLOR
I know some of you who don't normally read Writing Chapter Three said you are interested: I colored my hair with Henna and made a little video documenting the experience. I doubt I'll go back to chemical box dyes again. I love how it turned out!
And a big thanks to RedEnvelope for sending me this gorgeous monogrammed birthstone pendant necklace (in Ada's November birthstone -- maybe someday I'll pass it along to her!). I've been smitten with RE since I first got a catalog way back in college, and I now have several pieces of their jewelry in my collection. Whether you're shopping for a friend or yourself, their Favorites for Her is a great place to scope out pretty gifts.
RedEnvelope sent me this necklace. I was not compensated otherwise. My opinions are my own.
