Each family and restaurant has their own specific way of making them. Some are skinny and tall, others flat and wide, and some come nestled together like Parker House rolls in cast-iron pans. Served with butter or jam, smothered with gravy or topped with ham and cheese or a piece of fried chicken, biscuits are as Southern as bourbon, collards and mac and cheese. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/the_difference_between_biscuits_and_scones_plus_6_healthy_recipes#comments Food Blog Healthy Cooking Blog Breakfast Breana Lai Cooking tips Dessert Entertaining Recipe Makeover Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:47:40 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 285584 at http://www.eatingwell.com Host an EatingWell Oscar Party http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/host_an_eatingwell_oscar_party <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/host_an_eatingwell_oscar_party" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BV6277_310x310_web.jpg" alt="Host an EatingWell Oscar Party Blog Post" title="Host an EatingWell Oscar Party Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><h3>EatingWell’s Oscar-Ready Party Menu for 2015</h3> <p>My family hosts an Oscar party every year and each time we try to outdo ourselves when it comes to the party food and menu.
