Here is a very excellent recipe for Biscuits (if you are from the United States) or Scones (if you live pretty much anywhere else). I have made this recipe into a regular family favorite, by simply neglecting to tell them that I found it in a cookbook written about two hundred years ago! Also works beautifully if you add a bit of shredded cheese to the dry ingredients right before adding the milk.
Here is a recipe for Chicken Croquettes. I have also tried this one, and found it really good! As the recipe says, you can use any meat, or omit the meat and use ground tofu instead.
These recipes were gathered from the 1902 edition of The White House Cookbook.
