Something yummy and something sweet!

First, the something yummy!!
I've made these delicious biscuits for years now...
they have always been a Christmas morning favorite for our family ~
And whenever the boys would have company over,
I would whip up a batch for snacks and
they would be gone in a flash!
They're just great belly fillers and oh-so-tasty...

I found the recipe in an old Southern Living cookbook of mine years ago
and they really remind me of those Cheddar Bay biscuits that Red Lobster sells!
They're not so good for you but great for special occasions.

Here is the simple recipe:

Fast Goodies

2 cups biscuit mix (Bisquick or Pioneer, etc)
1/2 cup melted butter (one stick)
1 -  8 oz. container sour cream
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

(To have with your dinner,
add 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1 tbsp. of chives
and these taste like Red Lobster biscuits!!)

Spray cookie sheet or muffin tin (12 cavity) with Pam.
Mix all ingredients until combined.
Spoon onto cookie sheet or muffin tin and
bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
You can lightly brush the tops with melted butter
to make them really decadent too...


And here is the SWEET of my post!!!
We had a few precious visitors stop by the farmhouse today
and I just couldn't resist, I had to take pics of our grandbabies!

Just look at how growny little Miss Clara is!!!
Wearing little boots and all...
I love her beautiful hair, she's growing it out now.

There's that sweet pose again, the hand on the chest thing ~ LOVE!

We were having a serious discussion about coloring books....

And this sweet boy, baby Murray...
He's two months old now 
and growing like a WEED!!!
We snuggled and loved for a few hours ~

Just before they left Clara wanted to hold Murray and he just smiled and smiled!!!!
He's already such a happy baby, just like Clara has been ~
These precious grandchildren truly are blessings from Heaven!!

Thank you for always stopping by to see me
and for your wonderful comments,
I cherish each and every one!!!

Wishing you a beautiful weekend dear friends ~
hugs and love,

Awww!! Dawn, thank you for the recipe and how sweet your little grandbabies are. SOOooooo Precious. Give 'em some hugs and kisses for me. My girl will be 17 next month, so no grandbabies for me yet. God bless you!! {Donna} XOX

How refreshing to see a natural little girl who is just that "natural". A lovely complexion, a beautiful face, and no artifice. Almost every day I drive by Clara Street (here in town), and think of you and your granddaughter. Love your posts!
Blessings, Theresa @ Cottage Violets

I will try the biscuits! I agree too on the grandchildren being a true blessing, I have just one so far but even if we stopped with her i'd be fine as she's just such a joy! Your grandbabies are just adorable too! Susan

She is too precious and looking at him makes me yearn to hold a baby again. Savor every minute!

And Clara is so beautiful growing to look more lovely for each day.And that Murray is a cutie pie, so sweet and mild looking- you are truly blessed.

Love seeing photos of the little ones. My first grandchild is about the same age as Murray. I know how fast they grow, so I'm not planning to blink!

Theresa said...

Sounds yummy, I wish I had one right now:) Clara is sure growing and Murray is precious! Love those sweet smiles and I know you got some extra hugs from them both! Have a blessed day dear Dawn, HUGS!

I love that last picture, Dawn! That's one to frame, for sure. I love the sweet smile on his little face and Clara looks very happy to be holding her little brother.

The biscuits look delicious! I used to love eating the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster ~ until I had to go gluten free. Bisquick makes a gluten free version so I will have to give these a try.

Dine børnebørn er vidunderlige, jeg er vild med det sidste billede hvor de smiler begge to, nyd dem de bliver alt for hurtig store. knus morkaren.

I LOVE red lobster biscuits!! And your babies are adorable!! Adorable smiling baby photo!!

Vee said...

Such sweetness! Love that color on Clara...suits her to a T. Of course, Baby Murray loves her to hold him. That's plain to see.

Your recipe for Red Lobster biscuits includes sour cream...mine doesn't. Must try yours someday.
