I'm Not Afraid to Make Biscuits Anymore. This Recipe Was Easy!

Oh my gosh! I made biscuits!
Only 4 ingredients.
No rolling or cutting.
It was easy.
Best of all...
They were so yummy!!

The thing is, I'm not a Southern girl. Biscuits were not a thing in my house. Well, unless you count those ones from the can that scares the crap out of me, because you never know when it will pop open while pushing on it with a spoon, there were those...occasionally... but not really enough to even make me consider biscuits as a normal part of my childhood.  But, hubby, he is a Southern boy. He grew up with his mom and Gramma making biscuits and naturally he has always wanted me to make some, but it wasn't anything I ever wanted to attempt. The thought of messing with buttermilk and rolling out the dough and all that mess...Forget it!

Until I found this easy super simple biscuit recipe with only 4 ingredients! I figured I'd give it a try and...They are FABULOUS!!!

Here's what you do:
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees

Mix together by hand:
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup lemon lime soda

Mixing won't take long and it will be a very soft light dough. You're just trying to get make sure the ingredients are combined.

Melt 1/4 cup butter (or more) and pour onto cookie sheet. (Some people melt the butter in the oven, but when I tried it, it burned, so I stick with the microwave.)

Drop dough by spoonful on to cookie sheet with butter on it. Depending on the size of your spoonful, it makes about 8 biscuits.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

Then enjoy, just make sure you to bite in too fast, Ouch!

That's it! Easy biscuits in no time!

I Love Word Crimes! #MusicMonday

Weird Al has a new album full of fun twists on popular songs and, of course... some polka! My favorite song on this album is Word Crimes. It is super smart and perfect for all my fellow grammar lovers out there. If you cringe when people write "are family is..." when they really should have wrote "our family is...", then this is the perfect song for you!

It is first up on this week's #MusicMonday post.

Another fun song on this album is Tacky. And, the video is wonderfully tacky, too! I love all the celebrity appearances. They are so much fun! I'm especially delighted when Jack Black does his little skip step. It just makes me giggle.

Weird Al's Mandatory Fun is definitely worth a listen, if for nothing else then to remind us that we all need to laugh at ourselves a little more and enjoy life!

Have an awesome fun week!

Life is Short, Stick Your Head Out the Window and Open Your Mouth.

Sometimes we get so busy that we start moving too fast. We're running from this to that, from here to there. We spend life in the fast lane, staring at the road in front of us. We miss all the great things going by our side windows.

Make today the day you look at everything great that's going by you. Feel the sun on your face and the air on your skin. Stick your head out the window, open your mouth and... oh, wait watch out for that bug...and that pole, and... um, never mind...just sit back and enjoy the ride! :)

Even dogs know how great the ride is!

Notice: The ride referenced here is a metaphor for life. I don't endorse taking your eyes off the road while actually driving, nor do I suggest you actually stick your head out the window of a moving car. It's dangerous, and you could bugs in your teeth. Life is also short to not have common sense. Be safe!

Real People Bare It All For Love. #MusicMonday

I'm a big lover of makeup because it's fun, but I do believe we let it get out of hand. We've become slaves to the product. We can't leave the house without the right lipstick, or eyeliner for fear of what others might think. It's definitely time to realize that we don't need it. We are beautiful without it. It's time to try to love ourselves. That's what Colbie Caillat is telling us as she bares all in this new video, Try.

This band, is new to me, but I like the concept of the video. They asked real life couples to simply show how they express love.  It's raw pure love captured on camera.
It's I created by Abscondo.

What do you think of these new songs?
