Recipe for Buttery Garlic and Cheese Drop Biscuits

I looked at our weekly menu plan last night, and saw that my husband had written down "cheesy biscuits" as that evening's side dish.  What a perfect opportunity for me to bust out my grain mill.






I love the taste of freshly ground sprouted wheat!

And I also love the taste of this biscuit recipe.  Who doesn't love buttery, cheesy, garlic-y goodness?  We certainly do, and that's why this recipe is a family favorite.






Buttery Garlic and Cheese Biscuits

Makes one dozen biscuits

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter
1 tablespoon honey
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, pressed

1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.



2.  Add the stick of butter.  Cut it into chunks to make blending easier.  Using a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


3.  Drizzle the honey over the mixture and blend in with pastry blender.



4.  Add the milk and shredded cheese, and stir to combine until a soft dough forms.



5.  Drop the dough by 12 spoonfuls onto an un-greased baking sheet (or a parchment paper-lined baking sheet), spaced 2" apart. 



6.  Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until biscuits begin to brown.  Meanwhile, melt the 2 tablespoons butter.  Stir in garlic.



7.  Brush garlic butter onto finished biscuits.  Serve immediately.

Why Did My Chicken Lay That Strange Egg? {Decoding 10 Chicken Laying Issues}

What do you got?

A huge egg with two yolks in it?  A wrinkly misshapen egg?  An egg with a soft shell?  Or perhaps the all-inclusive just plain weird looking egg?

It's Not Weird to Have a Tub of Leftover Soap Scraps {Recyled Soap Scrap Bars Recipe}

Are you looking for ways to save money?  Who isn't nowadays?

Every little thing you do helps and the small things really do add up.  Which is why I have a somewhat creepy tub of soap scraps in my bathroom.






I admit, it seems a little weird to save soap scraps, but it wasn't always this way.  In fact, they used to have little contraptions for saving your soap scraps.





But those days are gone.  Or are they?

I think frugality is making a comeback--at least, it is around here, because I save all our soap scraps.  What do I do with them?


Recycled Soap Scrap Bars

If you are regular users of bar soap, a family of four can easily manage to get six additional bars of soap per year by saving soap scraps.  It doesn't seem like much, so I'll write it this way instead:  in ten years, that would be 60 bars of "free" soap.  There, that seems more impressive.

Ingredients:
Soap scraps
Water
Herbs (optional)

My Experience Using Homemade Baby Formula: It Is Possible!

I wanted to exclusively breastfeed my twins, I really did.



And I thought I could.  While I was pregnant, I read books and articles all emphasizing the fact that the more milk you express, the more milk you will make, so there is no reason a mom shouldn't be able to feed twins or even triplets exclusively on breast milk.  For whatever reason, however, my boobies didn't quite understand this theory.  My babies were feeding constantly, but never seemed to get full.  And worse, they were barely gaining any weight.  I was starting to get very worried about my Baby Girl and Little Man.




My pediatrician at the time was absolutely no help.  I was told that I needed to offer them the breast more frequently, though I'm not sure how that was possible since I was already constantly feeding them--seriously, I couldn't even go to the bathroom without them screaming because my boob wasn't in their mouth.  I was also told that they weren't latching on correctly.
