yuuummmm!

To say I've tried a lot of recipes on pinterest would be an understatement... I've tried a ridiculous amount!! Some great, some just ok, some disasters and then there are some that are out of this world... amazing!!! 

I've made these Cheddar Biscuits a few times and I feel it is my duty to you to share because let's be honest, I don't care if they weren't from skinny taste.. I'd eat every single carb loaded calorie and not think twice. They are that good.... and really... 97.3 calories! Pure and simple LOVE. 

Just a couple things before I give you the recipe... I usually half the recipe so I'm not left with a million biscuits and it makes about 6. I've started leaving out the garlic, I KNOW, who am I?! AND I don't use all the cheese it calls for. So let's say my biscuits are like 70 calories... sounds good to me! Bon Appetit!

Ingredients: 
  
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

    Melt butter in a small frying pan, add half the garlic and saute on low heat about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add parsley. (sometimes I'm lazy when I don't use garlic and just melt the butter in the microwave and then add the parsley)

    Bake for 10 minutes. Brush or drizzle biscuits with melted butter. Bake for 5 more minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.

    Enjoy! xoxo

    Tara's Shower...

    This past weekend I helped throw a shower for Tara! Since my mission in life is to become Martha Stewart.. naturally, I took on the decorating aspect of the shower :) 



    Sydney took this awesome panoramic shot of the food area. We held the shower at Crush Wine Bar in NLR (Argenta) which I absolutely love... I def need to spend some more time in this area. CAN NOT wait for the farmers market :) 

    Anyway, I'll share some pics now of the decor. AGAIN, I'm not the most talented photographer but I thought it turned out really cute! 





     





    Hope you love! It was a fun, successful party! Until the next one... :) xoxo
