Food (part 1)

Several readers have asked me for some easy recipe tips.  While I’m still “in training” myself…I’m happy to pass along what has worked well for me thus far.

While Bisquick is a dirty word in some kitchens, I try and always have a box of Low Fat Heart Healthy Bisquick around.  I learned this one from my mama – she’d whip up some drop biscuits to go with dinner occasionally and it made dinner feel a little more special – wow, homemade biscuits!

I never had any idea how easy they were until now.  I NEVER take the time or make the mess involved with rolling them out/cutting, I just drop them with a spoon onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.  They are almost impossible to mess up.  Also…you can go nuts with all the uses.  Here are a few ideas to run with:

    • Add leftover mixed herbs or chives from your garden to dinner biscuits
    • Make pancakes or waffles (they taste great, I promise!)
    • Use this recipe and some blueberries and lemon zest to make blueberry breakfast scones
    • Tonight, we used Bisquick to make some Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (ever had the ones at Red Lobster?)

The bisquick box is my secret weapon for adding something fun (and in 15 min or less) to a boring breakfast or a plate of leftovers.
Also, be sure to check the coupon database at Southernsavers.com because often there is a .50 off coupon.
Got any secret weapons in your pantry?
