Who loves freshly baked bread? ME ME ME! Who hates to knead? ME ME ME!

I know… I have a food blog, I should love all baking techniques, but I don’t. Kneading hurts my arms and I never know when it’s enough. So, for that reason, I make garlic and cheddar biscuits instead! And we eat a whole batch in, oh, 5 minutes! Seriously. My husband and I can kill these in no time. Especially when I serve them with my Feta Cheese Dip. Oh my Goodness, it is one amazing experience! You need to try this biscuit recipe!


You will need to join me over at my friend Terra’s delicious blog, Cafe Terra, to get the recipe. She is a very dear bloggy friend of mine, and I am so excited to be her guest today!

Come on by! Garlic and Cheddar Drop Biscuits await you! 😀

    One of the reasons I love making pizza so much-no need to knead! These biscuits look yummy. I’m off to check them out.

    (These biscuits look better than Red Lobster’s…whose biscuits are the only reason I ever go to Red Lobster.) 😀

      Me, too!! Or I used to go to Red Lobster, now I just make them at home.. they are so much better!! And you can play with different cheeses! 🙂

    Oh my goodness! I was just thinking about how I haven’t made these in a while over dinner last night. And I actually thought that I should do them drop vs. cut-out. Certainly checking out how you made these! Good timing. 🙂

    I so agree with you about kneading.. it keeps me from working with dough. I love a drop biscuit… the flavors you have here are fantastic. 🙂
