Easy Best Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Easy Best Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

These cheddar cheese biscuits are so easy to make and they taste soooo good! I made two batches of these and sent them as a treat with my husband, to his work. He informed me, when he got home, that everyone loved them! For something so simple it was wonderful to hear it was a hit! Now, when I say simple, I’m not kidding! These cheddar cheese biscuits come together so fast and bake quickly too! All you need to do is grab some bisquick, mix with the cheese, then add in the milk, sugar and garlic powder! DONE! Okay, well you still need to bake them, which only takes 8-10 minutes. Then you can brush with your butter mixture and eat to your hearts content. A warm cheddar biscuit straight from the oven- yes please! When I first made these I had no idea how big to form the batter on the baking sheet. So of course I went big and made six. Well, they were huge and very delicious. My second batch I separated into nine biscuits and they were the perfect size. But, I realized I could make them even smaller and they would still bake to a satisfying size, plus would feed more people.   Regardless, you can’t go wrong with this cheese biscuit recipe. I was thinking of even adding a few more spices next time. Maybe try some rosemary or chunks of fresh garlic, or trying different cheeses? YUM! The possibilities are endless! These are definitely my go to for biscuits. They are probably the best cheese biscuits I’ve had, or at least one...
Oreo Cheesecake Balls Truffles Recipe

Oreo Cheesecake Balls Truffles Recipe

Oreo Cheesecake Balls, all dressed up for the holidays!   Oreo truffles are a classic party dessert. They are SUPER delicious plus amazingly easy to make, so what’s not to love? I have made them different ways and with all the variety of Oreos you can find these days, the flavor combos are literally never ending! I’ve made them classic before and a peanut butter buckeye version, but I’ve never tried red velvet! Red velvet oreo truffles, topped with holiday M&M’s can these get any more festive? I think not!     If you have never made Oreo truffles before, just know that they are basically the easiest dessert to make. The hardest part would be the dipping, but I have a nice little trick to share that make these easily dippable too! Oreo Truffle Directions: In a food processor, add Oreos, pulse into crumbs and softened cream cheese. Mix until combined. Scoop out  1 tablespoon sized balls, roll them between your hands to make them round. Place on a sheet tray and place in the freezer. I like to let them sit overnight. Melt vanilla almond bark per the directions on the package. Dip truffles one at a time into the melted candy. Place them back on the try to harden. Drizzle with more melted candy and top with chopped M&Ms.     How to easily dip truffles: The easiest way I have found is to dip the truffles in batches, leaving the others to sit in the freezer. As soon as the truffles start to thaw, I have noticed it is harder to dip them. I use...
Eggnog Cupcake Recipe

Eggnog Cupcake Recipe

Eggnog Cupcakes are a festive treat loaded with Christmas flavors!   This eggnog cupcake recipe is super easy even though the directions might make you think twice about making it. Trust me, these cuties are worth it! These cupcakes have three elements to them, the cupcake, the filling, and the topping. The cupcake is made with a boxed white cake mix where I have added eggnog to the mix, you can still make eggnog cupcakes from scratch by substituting your favorite white cake mix, adding eggnog for the liquid. The filling is a homemade eggnog pudding. To make this step a little easier, feel free to use a boxed instant vanilla pudding mix, but use eggnog instead of the milk! I used a cinnamon whipped cream for the topping with a garnish of ground cinnamon to bring everything together. Again, you can use whatever frosting you prefer for the topping. I used a stabilized whipped cream because I wanted to keep everything about these eggnog cupcakes light and airy. Eggnog Cupcakes Directions: - So, with three separate elements to these cupcakes, just work on one at a time and you’ll be good to go! - First, make the eggnog pudding so it can set up in the fridge, which takes three hours. While that is setting up, make the cupcakes, they have to cool completely before filling and frosting but that three-hour wait will be plenty of time. - Last, right before serving, make the whipped cream, top filled cupcakes with the whipped cream, garnish with cinnamon or nutmeg and you’re done! How do you fill the cupcakes? Super...
Bacon Mac and Cheese

Bacon Mac and Cheese

Make this easy bacon mac and cheese recipe and your family will keep asking for more!  It is seriously so good and so cheesy! As a kid I grew up eating the Kraft Mac and Cheese with the orange powder.  I remember going to my grandma’s house where she would make it for all of us kids and then she would have extra cheese powder to pour on top. I still don’t know where she bought it from, but I admit- I loved it! These days, the boxed mac and cheese doesn’t sit well with me so I make my own delicious four cheese mac and cheese! I have to tell you though, trying to get a sauce that I was happy with took a few attempts, with many of the attempts ending up in the trash. I kept trying to make a roux and then adding in milk and cheese, only to have it turn out grainy and curdle. Even heating everything super slowly to prevent separation of the cheese, I still couldn’t do it. So, instead, I made a cheese sauce that is super easy and tastes super good without the trouble of making a roux. WIN!   All you do is add butter, milk and then the cheese! Heat over low heat until melted, add the seasoning and then pour over the noodles! Easy peasy! I think if the roux had worked it would’ve made a creamier sauce, so I might still try to figure that out and get back to you all, but until then this bacon mac and cheese recipe is delicious as is!...
Thanksgiving Turkey Leftover Pizza

Thanksgiving Turkey Leftover Pizza

Thanksgiving Turkey Leftover Pizza, a yummy way to use up those leftovers!   Thanksgiving pizza… as if pizza isn’t already enough to get excited, I threw Thanksgiving leftovers on top. Oh, yeah! So, I’m pretty sure you can guess that I love food. I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to come up with recipes. So, naturally, I love Thanksgiving and everything about it. Well, there is one slight downside to Thanksgiving. ALL the leftovers. Okay, well no, leftovers, in general, are not a downside. But, let’s face it after about two days of just reheating Thanksgiving over and over it can get pretty boring. Do you know what’s not boring? Pizza. Not boring at all! Now, obviously, this isn’t going to be a traditional pizza when you’re talking about using up random Thanksgiving leftovers. I literally took a bunch of items that I had small amounts of left and threw them on top of a pizza crust. And, let me tell you this ended up being one killer combo! So, my “sauce” is super simple, just roasted garlic and a drizzle of olive oil with some herbs. I had an abundance of roasted garlic left over. I used it in my mashed potatoes and cream cheese dip for a starter. How do you make roasted garlic? Cut the top off a head of garlic, about 1/4 inch down from the top, just enough to expose the cloves. Place in a medium-sized piece of tin foil. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil on top, add a pinch of salt, and pepper. Crumple up the foil until it...
Eggnog Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Eggnog Cheesecake Bars Recipe

You guys, these eggnog bars are so delicious and actually really easy to make. The eggnog cheesecake filling is a fairly standard one, but what sets these apart is the crust! It was a very happy accident that led me to using some failed cookie dough as the crust! You see, I was making my husband some of his favorite chocolate chip cookies, when I messed up the order of adding the ingredients. I added the flour mixture too soon to the sugar-egg mixture, which I know from experience will make the cookie dough spread on the baking sheet and I’d end up with really flat cookies. Not what I was going for. So what was I supposed to do with all this messed up cookie dough? (And yes, eating it all crossed my mind haha!) Well, I knew I was going to try to make these eggnog cheesecake bars and hadn’t settled on a crust yet so I thought I’d give it a try. I would love to say it turned out amazing the first time I made it. Well it did, kind of. The crust stuck to the bottom of the pan and wouldn’t come out no matter how hard I tried prying at it. However, I still took the eggnog cheese cake bars to a get-together and people loved it, even if they had to just scoop out the cheesecake part. Well, I wasn’t to be deterred. I had a great idea for this eggnog cheesecake recipe and I was going to see it through! I remade the crust, adding nutmeg this time to give more...
