Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Did you know that homemade biscuits are so easy to throw together, and that you can bake them in the time that it takes you to make this sausage gravy? Biscuits and Gravy are such a hearty and delicious meal that make me think of a foggy fall morning where you plan to have a jumbo brunch and snuggle under a blanket on your couch with coffee all morning. This recipe has both ingredients and directions for both parts, but I would save this biscuit recipe and make them as a side for dinner now and again too!
