" The LORD your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”Zephaniah 3:17
How awesome is that! Not only does the Mighty One bring us salvation but He actually rejoices over us with gladness and singing. And if that isn't enough He also quiets us with His love. We are loved sweet sisters, lets rejoice in that today!
Have a blessed day and here is a recipe for ya that I made last night and actually had enough to use it for breakfast this morning. :)

Soda Bread Biscuits
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet you want them)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter a standard muffin pan.
2 In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
3 Cut the butter into tablespoon sized pieces add to the bowl of flour. Using your (clean) fingers, work the butter into the flour, the butter between your fingers and mixing with the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. I actually used a pastry cutter to get it started and then used my hands.
4 Make a well in the center of the flour. Pour the buttermilk into the center of the well. Use a wooden spoon to gently mix the flour into the buttermilk until the flour is moistened with the buttermilk. Then use your hands to form the mixture into a loose, , slightly sticky ball of dough. The dough should be a little sticky, if it's too dry, add a tablespoon more of buttermilk. If it's just too wet to handle, add a sprinkling more of flour. Do not over-mix!
This is where I divided the dough and mixed in my add-ins.(see the end of the post for the add ins that I used), you can add anything you want really. It would be easier to add them to the flour mixture before you add the buttermilk, but I wanted to divide the dough in half so I waited until I had the dough completely mixed.
5 Spray muffin tin with cooking spray and fill the tins with dough. Put in the oven and bake for 12-13 minutes, until the tops are nicely browned. Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple minutes in the pan. Remove the biscuits from the muffin tin to a rack to cool for a few minutes more.
Serve with butter and jam. Or you can do this...
For dinner last night I added some cheddar cheese to half of the dough and we had them with minestrone soup.
Then to the rest of the dough I added some dried cranberries and chocolate chips and baked them up and saved them for breakfast this morning.
I will add that I left out the sugar entirely and I didn't miss it in cheese biscuits, but next time I will sprinkle some on the half with cranberries and chocolate chips . :)
