Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

Recently JC got a hankering (southern speak = desire) for those cheesy, garlicky biscuits served in a certain seafood chain restaurant.  He researched the numerous recipes for these lovely bundles and this is the result.  YUM-O!!!

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

2 C. buttermilk baking mix (Bisquick or Jiffy)
2/3 C. milk
1/2 C. shredded sharp or extra sharp cheese
1/4 C. butter, melted
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. garlic powder or salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Combine mix, milk, and cheese with a wooden spoon until soft dough forms
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet
Bake 8 - 10 minutes until golden brown
Combine butter and garlic powder and brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet
Serve warm
Makes 10 large biscuits

Birthday Cards

Here are a couple of birthday cards that I made recently using the Cricut cartridge "A Child's Year" (currently my favorite).

The colors and paisley pattern help to make this card fairly masculine!

And pink is always right for the more feminine card.
I also layered a couple of pieces of coordinating card stock inside the card and placed a strip of patterned paper off to the the side to "dress it up".
