The Brethren Church, is often mistaken for Amish or Mennonites, but the Brethren have different historical and theological roots. The Brethren Church is a "Plain" church. Members dress plainly and, like the Amish, are pacifists, but they do use cars and phones.

    I’ve never been good at biscuit making and for sure these will be on my menu tomorrow night. I like them hot out of the oven, cold with a little butter and cut in half with a piece of cheese, some bacon and a fried egg.
    We eat breakfast for supper a lot and the leftover biscuits from tomorrow will be Saturday’s nights supper. I let you know how they turn out for me and will try and include a picture or two.
    LOVE Rosanna’s columns.

    I really enjoy Rosanna’s witty style. She writes in a way to make me feel like I’m right there with her. I love reading both her’s and Lovina’s columns each week.

    Rosanna does have a lovely fluid style of writing. I used to love making yeast breads but never learned about biscuits. Just reading about them in Rosannas’ column almost makes me wish I could make them. You can tell she has a passion for their creation and it was enjoyable reading.

    I really enjoy reading these posts. I enjoy the way that she explains her thoughts, and makes you feel as if you are personal friends. I hope that the column stays. There is a lot of information out there, not all true, of the Amish, but harder to find information on German Baptists and Hutterites that has not been twisted. Thanks Rosanna, for sharing with us.

    What a great read, thank you Rosanna. We make these here in Australia also, we call them scones and they are served with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream, yummy. It is very English and when served with tea it is known as Devonshire Tea. Thank you again.

    I would like you to consider to change this page’s background color from tan/buff to white. If you want to print off a recipe to try, the background turns black.

    Well….I had never tried making breads before I read your cinnamon roll recipe. Tried it and it was perfection. So…in keeping with my trust in your recipes and hints (which I greatly appreciate)…I’ll try biscuits tonight. Hope mine turn out as beautiful and tasty as your’s look. I can almost taste them just by the picture. Fingers crossed they turn out as well as the rolls did. Thanks for being so generous with your cooking skills and giving us your recipes. Some cooks will never give out their treasured bests. You are so kind to do so.
