Carol Fay and Michael Wright at the Food Network Food & Wine Festival

I just got back from the Food Network Food and Wine Festival at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. It was an awesome experience. You can read about it on my blog at The highlight of the trip was meeting Carol Fay who is known as the biscuit lady at the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, TN.

She has earned a following from her TV appearances on shows ranging from Bobby Flay, Martha, Ellen, and the Tonight Show. Whenever you watch Carol make her famous biscuits you know the ingredients, she just doesn’t tell you the amounts. Although her biscuits are THE BEST…AND because we don’t know the exact amounts of ingredients to be used, I recommend using the buttermilk biscuit recipe on back of the Martha White flour bag. (Until Carol gives up the recipe…which will never happen.)

As I was writing this I remembered that football is just around the corner and thought of a pecan biscuit recipe that would be GREAT for tailgating parties. Try this recipe and let me know what you think.
