After what seems like a lifetime of sick kids and a very sick husband, the house is starting to feel somewhat normal. Normal as in the kids having their energy back even though hubby is still in bed wallowing in pain. With almost everyone eating again I whipped up a meal that’s about as gentle on the stomach as it gets. Chicken soup and soft biscuits. Much like the ones from Cracker Barrel Restaurant, these are cotton ball soft on the inside and buttery on the outside.

These biscuits are great for any meal but perfect for dipping in a thick chicken stew.  I’m hoping this virus is on the way out and I won’t need my husband to make this meal for me.

    Yummy! I’ve been to Cracker Barrel once and I did have a biscuit, it was Heavenly. Love copycat recipes. If I can recreate something like at a restaurant, I’m sold. Thanks for sharing the yummyness.

    I am definitely bookmarking this. Cracker Barrel biscuits are the best and those look great. I just ate lunch and I’m getting hungry again now just looking at those pictures.

      They are almost as good and soooo easy to make. For some reason I thought biscuits would be something difficult but these aren’t.

      You can’t screw these up, I promise, they’re that easy to make. If you make them and they’re a flop I’ll do a video for you. :)

    Mmm, that looks delicious. Never been to Cracker Barrel (don’t have them in Cali) but I’ve gotta try next time I make biscuits!
