Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits Recipe

 I love love LOVE these biscuits! They are by far my favorite go-to / semi-fancy bread when people are coming over soon or we’re asked to bring a bread to a potluck.

This recipe is based on a Paula Dean recipe and is in my permanent collection for sure! Continue reading “Cheesy Garlic Biscuits” »

Mini Frittatas

This is another recipe where the substitution possibilities are endless. I love using turkey and a variety or cheeses. My other favorite combo (shown in the photo) is spinach, parmesan, and mozzarella. These are great for breakfast, a snack, or to take to a brunch. Impressive with minimal effort…gotta love that!
