Welcome to my kitchen! This is a blog that is evolving as my life does. I like food, but I don't have all the time in the world to cook. So lately, I'm going with simple, easy recipes. I may switch that up occassionally and post something time-intensive, but that isn't what I'm about these days. If that sounds like you - I hope you enjoy some of these recipes.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Why do people go to Red Lobster?  For those amazing cheddar biscuits of course!  Well, I know that's why I go anyway.  Since I'm allergic to seafood - it's pretty much my only option on their menu.  So when I heard of recipes out there that are damn close to the real thing, I jumped on that grenade.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits
Source: Paula Deen, God love her.
servings: 12 biscuits

Biscuit Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup biscuit mix
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup water

Garlic Butter Ingredients:
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 400º.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the biscuit mix and cheese in a small bowl.  Add the water and stir until just combined.  Drop the dough by the spoonful onto the parchement paper.  Bake for 10 minutes.  The biscuits will just be beginning to brown.

Meanwhile, while the biscuits are baking, make the garlic butter by combining the melted butter, garlic powder, salt and parsley in a small bowl.  As soon as the biscuits are removed from the oven brush each with the garlic butter.  Serve warm.

These were amazing!  They were the first thing at dinner that everyone sunk their teeth into.  And between 5 people, there weren't any left by the end of the meal.

And on that note-it's time to get out of Dodge.  It's the July 4th weekend and we're getting out of here!  Camping here we come.   I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th and thank you to all the soldiers for keeping us free and independent!
