Basil Butter Garlic Bread

I am absolutely horrible with plants. Any plant of mine that lives more than a couple weeks should count itself extremely lucky. I try to keep them alive…really I do. I decided to try my luck with a couple of potted herbs (parsley and basil) when we settled into our new apartment on the East coast. I am happy to report that after a whole month they are both still alive and yielding more fresh herbs than I know what to do with.

This over abundance of parsley and basil is what led me to brave the mouse kitchen to try this new Basil Butter Garlic Bread recipe that I found on Two Peas & Their Pod. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly (mainly because I only needed a few slices), but this bread was amazing. All of those herbs on top give it a deceivingly healthy feel, but trust me it is well worth the calories.

Capturing the crave-worthy taste of Red Lobster’s famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits was the goal…and this is as close as I’ve come to tasting the magic of those biscuits in a homemade version. This recipe is based on a Paula Dean recipe and is in my permanent collection for sure! Continue reading “Cheesy Garlic Biscuits” »

I absolutely love the idea of making a tasty treat out of a mere three ingredients and usually only using a single bowl (minimal dishes–always a plus). Honestly, we found it difficult to finish all of these. While they definitely passed our taste test, they have a unique flavor that only complements certain meals well. They’re great with soups and I’m sure that we will be making these again. Continue reading “3 Ingredient Sour Cream Muffins” »
