Landscape Monday


Photo week is BACK! This time Steph is hosting and she chose the auto-settings as the theme. Monday means Landscape.

According the the CD that cake with my camera, Landscape mode will turn off the flash, enhance greens and blues, increase contrast and it will focus on the closest object. So I wanted to go out and take some pictures that could benefit from this setting.

After my afternoon outside, I decided that I don’t like landscape mode on my camera that much. In fact I might consider using it for my food pictures in the future since the flash gets turned off. I didn’t feel like it enhanced the color of the sky very much…

That being said, here are my landscape pictures. I went to a local park to take these pictures. Enjoy! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Macor Tuesday.


Willow trees and a park bench.


I love how bright the blue is in this picture.


Hidden walkway from the back of the park up to a main road. Hubby and I found this shortcut after living here over a year!

    Looks like these turned out great! I’m surprised they didn’t call for brushing some egg on top of the biscuits before cooking, that might get that top a little crispier…I totally want to make some of these Saturday morning.

    These look very good to me. I have a favorite biscuit recipe, but want to give these a try because of the buttermilk.

    Have been following your blog for a while. Nice blog!

    I agree Steph. Or maybe just melted butter to give it the color.

    If you want to compare even more recipes from many of the popular sites, take a look at RecipeComparison.com. Just search for “buttermilk biscuits” and you’ll see all the ingredients nicely laid out in a table with a link to jump directly to each recipe.

    I worked at a KFC in the mid-90s. I had privy to the ingredients lists and methods. The biscuits came frozen and had egg in the dough. We brushed the tops after baking with butter-flavored oil that is commonly used in the restaurant industry. I remember thinking that the egg was unusual; I hadn’t seen many biscuit recipes calling for egg, and I have been baking since I was 8.

    kfc.com does not list eggs in their food allergy listing for the biscuits, just an fyi

    I, too, worked at a KFC when I was a teenager. The biscuits were not frozen. It was a bag mix and we mixed it with a large tub of shortening. Then mixed, rolled, cut and baked. We topped with a “liquid butter” substance fresh from the oven. They may make them frozen now, but they didn’t in the early 90’s.

    Oh, and there are NO eggs in the mix. Otherwise, it would be a cake, not a biscuit. That is common baking “science”.
