Wow. Sometimes I come across a recipe that just knocks my socks off. Who doesn’t love homemade biscuits piping hot right out of the oven? Who doesn’t love a recipe that turns out perfectly every time—using only 4 ingredients? This recipe for 4-Ingredient Homemade Biscuits is now my go-to for a delicious bread to go with biscuits and gravy, soups, chili or simply with melted butter and jam. The recipe consists of only 4 everyday ingredients: Bisquick, sour cream, 7-Up and butter! Generally, I prefer a mixer to hand mixing bread dough, but for this recipe, stirring by hand turns out a much better batter. If you mix these ingredients with an electric mixer, the dough gets too wet and sticky, which makes it difficult to punch out the dough with a cookie cutter. Mixing by hand gives you the perfect consistency. Instead of incorporating the butter into the dough, the butter gets melted and poured into a sheet pan or casserole, and the biscuit dough gets laid right on top of the butter. These delicious nuggets of dough are light, flaky and simply divine! If you’re looking to add one more item to your holiday menu or want to surprise family and guests with a real taste of home, you can’t beat comfort food at its best!

Would you pass a Waffle House to get to an International House of Pancakes or vice versa? The Washington Post took a survey and it revealed that 59% of Americans preferred waffles to the 41% who love flapjacks. Well, this recipe for may change all of that. That’s because this pancake gets its awesome flavor and look from another one of American’s breakfast favorites, the cinnamon roll! (Waffles, you may be in serious trouble here.) These pancakes are so delicious with the built in (or swirled on) goodness of a cinnamon roll with that yummy cream cheese glazed icing over top! There are a couple of additional steps to making the pancakes and some tricks to making Cinnamon Roll Pancakes perfect! First, make sure the cinnamon swirl is not too runny. If so, place it in the frig for just a few minutes. Runny cinnamon swirl won’t give you the pinwheel look. Second, give yourself a pancake or two to get the technique down pat. Before you know it, you’ll be on a (cinnamon) roll! Personally, I love these!
