Cheese Biscuits and Regurgitated Photos

Last week as I was quickly working to finish up a supper my sister and I were making for a friend, I said, “where is your recipe for garlic cheese biscuits?” She brought it out but it needed Bisquick and I had none on hand. I said, “well, I have a Bisquick recipe but I don’t have time to make it.” Cooking after work in a limited time slot sort of cramps your cooking style, so I thought.

Well, I grabbed a cookbook that our friend Glori had given us from their church and quickly flipped through it. There it was … Cheesy Biscuits submitted by Susan R. And oh my! Looking at the ingredients I knew it had to be good. So I quickly throw them together, baked them and WOW! That’s all I’ve got say about that.

This is the Mother of All Cheese Biscuit Recipes although I wouldn’t recommend eating them very often.

2 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, melted
1 c. sour cream
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Mix together and drop onto greased baking sheet with spoon or cookie scoop. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350. Makes apprx. 18.

Next time if I am not cooking for a pregnant woman who would not like the smell of garlic, I will add some in as well. And some parsley. Here’s why I like them so much.

1. They’re just plain long delicious.
2. They are just as good a day or two later, just warm them up a little.
3. They are really easy & quick to make.
4. Did I mention they are delicious??

I didn’t get a chance to get pictures while I was making them. They woulda been blurry anyway as I was dashing around the kitchen finishing my half of the meal.

And regurgitated photos????? I mean, really!!! Just wanted something to do last week so I went through my files to see if I’m missing something so here are some you’ve seen before but with a different edit this time, and some you may not have seen yet at all.













I did go to Jekyll Island this past weekend so I have some new ones to add soon. Don’t hold your breath, though.


Feeling Loved – Thursday September 17, 2009

Laughter, conversation, food, more conversation, tears, still more conversation, more laughter, more food, more tears = knowing you are in a safe place.

Last Friday night 5 men and 19 children generously allowed their wife/mom to spend about 24 plus a few hours down on Jekyll Island. Another man and 4 children gave up their wife/mom for a few hours so she could join us for supper and the evening.

We had a 3-bedroom villa with decks looking out over the ocean. It’s good we did because we spent very little time out on the beach, oddly enough. But if you know us, you understand. Like Carolyn’s husband says, it’s a little hard to figure out who’s listening to who.

And yet in the midst of the laughter and 3 conversations going on at once, we seem to be hearing each other’s hearts, and that’s what keeps the friendships alive.


It was windy, windy on the east side.

Awesome food at Bonefish Grille (on St. Simons). Lois made a chocolate cookie cheesecake that we ate later that was fantabulous!!

You’re never too young to learn to drink sweet tea. (or was it coke)

If you’re on Jekyll Island, make sure to check out the bookstore near the millionaire’s village. Every room has a different theme. Even the bathrooms, one of which is functional, have lots of items for sale in them.

Carolyn’s family met us there so they could spend some time on the beach. That was special too since it was the first time several of our friends had met her youngest son.

Love you ladies!!!

So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?
