    Polly, you are not the first to recommend this. I read the same thing
    on a website. So, one biscuit was a bit wet on the bottom, so I did
    as you intruct. I tenderly rolled it in my hand and gently patted it
    in the baking pan. No difference.

    You forgot grease. Grease is an important part of biskies. Those are big
    blobs of white flour and grease. Yummy!

    I guess if you are one of the folks who couldn't get fat if you tried,
    then OK, but the combination of refined white flour and fat--even the
    best fat--is a recipe for obesity for everyone else. If a person's
    goal is, "Die large and fill out an oversized coffin," then "biskies"
    are the ideal food.

    You'd probably want to add some sugar and/or cheese to the mix for even
    more weight packing, heart-stopping nutrition. OTOH, how unhealthy can
    biscuits be? I saw biscuits and gravy at Whole Foods in the salad bar
    the other day. They even had conveyer belts at the checkouts. Yup,
    everything's up to date in Kailua city...

    Yes, you sure do. I can relate. Many times I've fixed a plate of food,
    fairly small amounts compared to normal, and can't finish half of it.
    Strange, since we're healing, we should be craving what our body needs.
    Like protein and probably milk and other dairy products (saw your FB
    post about that). Maybe if you can manage to put together some biscuits
    you can add an egg for more protein.

    I know that feeling. After I had heavy duty surgery a couple years ago I
    had almost no appetite. The hospital food was not horrible, but I wasn't
    hungry. The best thing about meal time was that it broke up the boredom.
    Even though the hospital portions were smaller than I was used to
    having at home, I only ate about a third of the meals. It was a while
    before my appetite returned. I stopped snacking.

    No egg, but I did make some biscuits. I made the mistake of trying
    half WL flour. They didn't rise very much this time..so it is back to
    regular AP flour.

    I was looking back (in FB) at what Squeaks said bout tweaking her
    biscuits for high altitude. I am going to quote her here..

    "Having lived in Denver for several years, I had to tweak my
    grandmother's buttermilk biscuit recipe. The original recipe is 2 C.
    flour, 1/2 t. salt, 2 1/2 t. baking powder, 1/2 t. baking soda, 5 1/3
    T. butter and however much buttermilk it takes to make a nice,
    nonsticky dough. The tweak was to increase the baking powder to 3 1/2
    t., decrease the baking soda to 1/4 t. and increase the baking
    temperature from 425F to 450, while decreasing the baking time
    slightly. You also want to use flour with a high protein count. Baking
    the biscuits faster helps keep it from drying out at altitude. At
    least, this formula worked for me."

    I haven't tried her formula yet..but maybe I will next time. Maybe
    eggs next time...I wasn't hungry for eggs this time. Two biscuits
    filled me up.

    Denver is at a mere 5000 ft, but I can give it a shot. I tried the
    std Betty Crocker Gold Medal AP biscuits last yr --with no alt adj!--
    and they came out pretty decent. Waaay better than anything I've
    tried with WL. Perhaps with the adjust. I gotta check my baking
    pwdr, too. I bought some new jes in case. I think you are right
    about the gluten being required to capture the gases at alt.

    I'm gonna take a day off, then re-attack Fri or Sat.

    Okay, Mississippi is #1 in obese. Mississippi is also #1 in the number of
    unwed children having babies with no fathers (biologically impossible but go
    figure). It's hard to conclude that biscuits are to blame. Polly

    Poverty and ignorance ----> "unwed children having babies with no
    fathers."
    Poverty and ignorance ----> stuffing oneself full of cheap empty carbs
    ----> obesity.

    Mississippi is the poverty and ignorance capital of America.

    I'm seriously considering eliminating wheat completely, rather than
    merely almost completely. That got me thinking about other grains,
    and my wife and I deciding that beef-mushroom-carrot-barley soup
    should make a comeback in our family. For some reason, I haven't made
    it in many years.

    Well, thank you for the advice, Chris, and you take it easy and jes keep
    recoopin' and get stronger.

    I tried cooking a Smithfield ham, once. Complete disaster. I'd
    rather pay and get the real deal.

    I limit carbs pretty severely anyway, and would have to go out of my
    way to procure those. In fact, in the soup I mentioned, there is not
    a lot of barley, just enough for barley flavor.

    Hmm, barley hasn't any noticeable flavor in soups, it's mostly a
    filler and adds texture... you should try toasting it first, that's
    what I do with buckwheat, pan toast it. Buckwheat is sold at every
    major market and many not so major markets... you can buy it on line
    too. How much you eat is up to you but it's a lot more healthful than
    wheat and barley. Buckwheat is not a grain, it's actually a fruit. I
    buy mine in 50# sacks, if you can't use it all find someone to share,
    I split a shipment with a neighbor:
