When I was a child I went to summer camp in the Texas Hill Country, Hunt, TX to be exact. At the end of camp my parents would come and pick me up. We always had breakfast at this little diner that served the best Orange Biscuits. My Dad would always say that he wished he knew how they made them, well I found out.
