What’s Happening Today – January 14, 2021
Today on DelmarvaLife, We get you storm ready!
WRDE Chief Meterologist Paul Williams talks about the possibility of a wintery pattern making its way to Delmarva.
WBOC Meterologist Mike Lichniak gives us an storm history lesson and talks about what has to happen to bring measurable snow to Delmarva.
If you’ve lived on Delmarva for a while, you know to expect the unexpected when it comes to storms. We check in with the folks at Delaware Electric Cooperative to find out why it’s important to have an emergency kit and what to put in it.
Snow, or no snow, winter weather on Delmarva means the very real possibility of frozen pipes. If you find yourself in that situation, the team at Royal Plus can help you clean it up.
A storm sometimes knocks out the power. When that happens, the crews at Delaware Electric Cooperative jump into action. We get a behind-the-scenes look at how they prepare.
We take a tour and, with the help of Spicer Brothers Construction, show you the areas of your home you really need to pay attention to both pre and post winter weather.
Registered Dietitian, Alyson Hickman has the food covered. She shows us how to make a charcuterie board.
There’s nothing like freshly baked biscuits, especially when they’re made from scratch and with lots of love. Our Better Buttermilk Biscuits are super flaky and perfect for eating as-is or alongside a bowl of soup, a crock of chili, a saucy stew…we can go on and on!
What You’ll Need
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for work surface
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
- 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, sift together 2-1/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in shortening and butter using a fork or pastry cutter, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened.
- Place dough on a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough just until dough comes together and roll out to 3/4-inch thickness with a rolling pin.
- Cut out biscuits with a 2-1/2-inch cutter or glass. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Knead remaining dough back into a ball to make more biscuits.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or just until biscuits begin to turn golden. Remove from baking sheet and serve warm.
